The Plywood Report: Il Cantuccio, Pulino's, and More

1) West Village: From the tipline: "New awning goes up at 91 Christopher St., the 'doomed address' that once housed Goodfellas Kitchen and Broncas Tapas Bar, for a restaurant called Il Cantuccio Bakery And Artisan Cook." [PLYWOOD]

2) Bowery: Down by the Hipster takes a sneak peek at the progress at Keith McNally's new pizza place Pulino's, scheduled to open in December. Progress has been made, but there's a lot to be done. [PLYWOOD]

3) Gramercy: From the tipline: "The Fro Yo District of NYC (think: Flurt, Pinkberry, Berrywild, Red Mango-from 20-34th on Third) expects a new entrant. The space currently under construction on Third between 26-27 near sandwich mecca, Lamazou, and karaoke conveyor-belt sushi bar, East, is said to be another." [PLYWOOD]

4) East Village: Fork In The Road brings word that a Belgian ale house will be opening in the long vacant space on the northeast corner of Second Avenue and 3rd St. Say the folks at The Voice: "Given its location just four blocks south of Belgian brew shrine Burp Castle -- not to mention the other establishments on East 7th Street's tavern row -- and its location on this otherwise alcohol-saturated stretch of Second Avenue, expect the proprietors of the would-be bar to have a truly crazy time of it at the upcoming SLA & DCA Licensing Committee Meeting on September 14." [PLYWOOD]

5) Lower East Side: The Lo-Down brings word that Saffa, a new South African restaurant, will be opening up on 74 Orchard St. any day now. [PLYWOOD]

6) East Village: The new signage up in the karaoke place that's replacing Kim's Video reveals that there won't just be a deli on the ground floor, there will also be a billiards hall. [PLYWOOD]

7) South Slope: The second branch of Lucali now has windows! See above. [PLYWOOD]

8) Greenpoint: Our roving photographer sends in a pic of 849 Manhattan Ave.: "Used to be a grocery (still is on Google Street View) but now has restaurant permits posted, a new storefront and a gutted interior." [PLYWOOD]

9) Midtown: Midtown Lunch reports that Onya, the Japanese udon chain owned by the people behind Beard Papa, will open in Midtown on Monday. According to the owners, it will be the first restaurant serving real udon from Osaka in New York. [PLYWOOD]
