EaterWire: Window Envy, Veloce Pizzeria, Arby's Update

New, 2 comments

GREENPOINT— Our roving photog notices that McCarren Park adjacent restaurant Lokal has added a takeout window after seeing the smashing success of the one next door at Five Leaves: "...they have now opened a juice/coffee window of their own. Eventually also smoothies. Given the number of joggers dripping off the park into Greenpoint, they could end up doing some brisk business with that. Today's the window's first day of business." [EaterWire]

EAST VILLAGE— Urban Daddy shares the news that Solex, the EVill wine bar currently closed for renos, will reopen on Monday as Veloce Pizzeria. The Robs report Frederick Twomey and Sara Jenkins are behind the project and will serve up Sicilian style pies. [UD; NYM]

DOWNTOWN BK— Yesterday we learned that the Landmarks Preservation Commission sent Arby's back to the drawing board after they presented renderings for their planned restaurant in the famed Gage & Tollner space. Brownstoner shows us why. [Brownstoner]

GOWANUS— To celebrate its opening this weekend BKLYN Yard is throwing an event on Saturday featuring Pizzamoto from the Brooklyn Flea, the Red Hook huarache vendors, the Green Pirate Juice Truck, and more. Noon - 7 p.m. at 388 Carroll Street. [CHB]
