New, 3 comments

1) Soho: Grubz has a shot of MacBar’s new signage, the long-delayed mac 'n' cheese joint going in adjacent to Delicatessen. They write: “The people at Delicatessen (same owners) tell us that it won’t open adjacent to their current operation till the end of June, and the menu hasn’t been finalized yet, but Delicatessen’s chef, Michael Ferraro, is coming up with about a dozen varieties of macaroni and cheese.” [PLYWOOD]

2) South Street Seaport: Photog Will Femia snags this shot of the new fish shack-themed eatery coming soon to Front Street from the Cowgirl Hall of Fame folks. [PLYWOOD]

3) Madison Sq. Park: Update: A tipster sends another shot of plywood vet SD26, and reports that it will open now in mid-September. [PLYWOOD]

4) East Village: EV Grieve reports that the Mambo Italiano Pizzeria space at 347 E. 14th street will be replaced by Kati Thai, and posts a shot of the plywood signage. [PLYWOOD]

5) Williamsburg: Femia also sends along info and pics from 44 Berry in Williamsburg: “a local broker told me this weekend that the developer told her they have secured a "Louisiana BBQ style restaurant" for street level in that building as well.” [PLYWOOD]

6) Williamsburg: Zagat has it that Williamsburg eatery Sweetwater has expansion plans: “Well, here's an expansion we can get behind. Williamsburg standard Sweetwater is prepping to open a bakery two blocks down in the old St. Helen space. Currently "dealing with bureaucracy," the team hopes to open the still-unnamed venture in the coming months (150 Wythe Ave.).” [PLYWOOD]

7) Park Slope: Gothamist reports that Bar Tini in the slope nears opening at 1302 8th Avenue: "Bar Tini, the third European-style cafe from restaurateur Peter Sclafani, is beginning to look like it'll be open soon. The paper covering the windows at the Eighth Avenue, Park Slope spot has come down and several interior details can be gleaned (if you cup your hands around your eyes like a creepy bastard and press your face against the front window, like we did). Mirrors and alternating low light sconces line the walls, there's an old worldish pressed tin ceiling and a long bar, hence the name." [PLYWOOD]

8) Hell's Kitchen: Finally, a plywood shot of Pio Pio in Hell's Kitchen via Midtown Lunch. Opening now seems imminent. [PLYWOOD]
