Monday Opening Report: Swich, Warren 77 Open, Brooklyn Star This Week

1) Williamsburg: The Feed reports on the opening of Joaquin Baca's The Brooklyn Star in the old Brick Oven Gallery space at 33 Havemeyer: "...its centerpiece—a wood-fired oven—has been there for 110 years. It’ll be put to good use for dishes like mac and cheese, pork ribs with Dr Pepper sauce and roasted trout with creamed corn. Drinks include PBR and a global wine list." Status: Not open. There was a friends and family dinner last night and another will be held tonight, so signs point to an opening this week. 33 Havemeyer St., 718-599-9899.

2) Tribeca: The Observer and Grub Street bring the news that Warren 77, the planned collab between Matt Abramcyk of Smith & Mills and the Beatrice Inn and hockey player Sean Avery, has opened: "While Warren unlikely to become the next has already gotten visits from John McEnroe and Josh Hartnett, and Saturday night found it full of stylish waifs...But Abramcyck tells us he wants this to be a neighborhood place, and that’s exactly what it looks like..." Status: Certified Open. 77 Warren St.

3) Fidi: A new location of sandwich shop Swich has opened up in Fidi in an old Quizno's space. Status: Certified Open. 83 Maiden Lane, 212-809-9800.

4) Morningside Heights: From the tipline: "I haven't eaten there yet but Haakon's Hall is now open in the old Radio Perfecto space by Columbia. The layout looks pretty much the same though most of it is newly renovated. When I went inside the host said they've been serving the full menu since Monday and a sign on the door announces a grand opening on May 17th, Norwegian Constitution Day." Status: Certified Open. 1187 Amsterdam Ave., 212-300-4166

5) Prospect Heights: Grub Street reports that the High Steaks space on Flatbush near Bergen has reopened as Fish & Sips. They serve fish and coffee: "Asulin is frying flounder, whiting, and pollock for use in fish and chips, but mostly he’s lightly grilling trout, sea bass, and tuna in garlic, olive oil, salt, and pepper." Status: Signs point to open. 216 Flatbush Ave., 718-636-2256.

6) Greenwich Village: The Feed reports that the owners of Devi and the now shuttered Indian Bread Co. will open Aamchi Pao, a 12 seat sandwich shop serving Mumbai-style street food in the old Indian Bread Co. space. Status: Unknown, no answer to calls, though a peek at the site last week showed serious construction efforts. 194 Bleecker St., 212-228-1909.
