The Plywood Report: Batista, Question Mark Cafe, Spice

New, 2 comments

1) East Village: EV Grieve posts photos of the signage at two new EVill additions: Question Mark Cafe, coming to First Avenue (between St. Mark's and Ninth) and Batista, a 1950s Habana-style club opening on Avenue C near Third in the shuttered 40C space. [PLYWOOD]

2) Downtown Brooklyn: Chef Cesar Ramirez tells Fork in the Road that he and the owner of fancy supermarket Brooklyn Fare are considering opening a tiny restaurant in the neighborhood to recreate the chefs table dinner he offers at the market. [PLYWOOD]

3) Chelsea: From the tipline: "I lament the demise of Noodle Corner on 22nd and 8th Avenue. An especially tasty, cheap choice in Chelsea. When it closed, I feared another dormant space, yet added to by the closing of Ate Ave. Which I blame on the name, but let’s not go there. So today I see that SPICE is moving in. Another tasty, cheap choice for Chelsea." [PLYWOOD]

4) Soho: Curbed has the latest shots of the Crosby Street Hotel, which opens at the end of the month. The outdoor restaurant space still doesn't look like much, but some new artwork is going in. [PLYWOOD]

5) Flatbush: Fork in the Road reports that Mimi's Hummus, the small Israeli restaurant that opened in February, will be expanding with the addition of a market and wine bar next door. Owner Avi Shuker says the wine bar will be open in a few months and will feature a global wine list. The market "will stock a wide range of Middle Eastern products, such as cheese, pickles, olives, and prepared foods, as well as cheeses from Italy and other regions". [PLYWOOD]
