The Plywood Report: Armando's, Purple Yam and More

New, 2 comments

1) West Village: After hearing reports that work has finally begun, an eater operative checked in on the progress of the rumored second location of The Smith in the former doomed Sheridan Square space. Construction is definitely pushing forward, but it still a long way off. And there's still no final confirmation about who's moving in. [PLYWOOD]

2) Williamsburg: Our roving photographer noticed a curious looking space on South 4th between Wythe and Kent, marked by a giant star. According to the paperwork on the door, it will be an "eating or drinking establishment with musical entertainment." [PLYWOOD]

3) Ditmas Park: When Soho staple Cendrillion announced its closure, the owners said they would be relocating to Ditmas Park. Turns out things have changed. The owners are now opening Purple Yam in the space, a new Korean restaurant with a spacious backyard. A check with their website reveals that they'll be serving Korean pancakes and kimchee when they open in August. [PLYWOOD]

4) Brooklyn Heights: Lost City reports that landmark eatery Armando's is set up reopen in August. [PLYWOOD]

5) Coney Island: The Feedbag and Grub Street report on the progress of Cizbiz, Orhan Yegan's planned Turkish eatery. GS reports that, while he has yet to secure the lease, if he does "the 110-seat venue will be going up against the behemoths, Tacis Beyti and Sahara." [PLYWOOD]
