1) Hudson Square: Lucy Browne's, the "wholesome American eatery" at 225 Varick Street (and Clarkson), will be opening tomorrow, according to their signage. The new restaurant in the former Steak Frites space will rely on local ingredients for its comfort food menu. [PLYWOOD]
2) Chelsea: A tipster reports and a call to the cafe confirms that The Grey Dog Coffee will be opening their third location on 16th Street between 7th and 8th in the Maroon's space in about 2 months. [PLYWOOD]
3) Chelsea: An Eater operative snapped the above photos of the plywood at the Tipsy Parson, the new venture from the Little Giant people. The restaurant (formerly a laundromat) on 9th Avenue near 19th Street will serve a menu similar to Little Giant's, emphasizing refined comfort food. In April, Grub street reported that the space might be open as soon as May; the above photo indicates the opening has been somewhat delayed. [PLYWOOD].
4) Cobble Hill: A late fall opening is planned for Strong Place, the new restaurant from Kenny Tufo and Jeff Lederman, the chef and owner of Brooklyn's popular Bocca Lupo. The Strong Buzz claims that the "American Bistro with a raw bar and a gastro-pub-esque menu" will be opening at 270 Court Street, right next to Sweet Melissa patisserie.
