New, 2 comments

1) The Village: A number of tipsters are sending in word that MaximoPino Cafe, a new Italian spot specializing in pizza and gelato, is almost ready to open on 6th Ave. and 13th St. [PLYWOOD]

2) Bed-Stuy: Brooklyn Based brings word that the owners of Saraghina have plans to open a new restaurant in the same neighborhood. While they're currently known for their pizza, the new venture will focus on fish. [PRE-PLYWOOD]

3) Chelsea: Chelsea Now reports that the Chelsea Hotel has plans to open two bars off the main lobby. The spaces, currently being used as office space, would sport a total of 40 seats. [PLYWOOD]

4) East Village: Fork in the Road writes that Beltrami Foods, a new Italian restaurant, is planning to open in a long dormant store front on Avenue B. The proposed chef is the owner's mother who has lived and cooked in Italy and has had high profile gigs for celebrities like Mick Jagger and William Dafoe. The duo made their first appearance at last night's CB3 meeting, where they were applying for a full liquor license. Brace for backlash. [PLYWOOD]

5) Greenpoint: Greenpointers sends an update on Paulie Gee's, the highly anticipated neapolitan pizza spot in the shuttered Paloma space. The space is being designed by the same people who brought Greenpoint The Manhattan Inn and, like that space, Paulie Gee's will focus on using salvaged materials. [PLYWOOD]

6) Chelsea: Fork in the Road brings word that Brooklyn based bakery Aunt Butchie's has plans to open a brick and mortar cupcake store in a former Yolato space. The bakery, known for their cakes, is taking their first stab at cupcakes that "focus in on the Brooklyn lifestyle" with flavors like zeppole and cheesecake. [PLYWOOD]

7) Midtown: Midtown Lunch reports that yet another Chipotle wannabe has popped up in midtown. Oaxaca Grill plans to open in the coming weeks and appears to be "more upscale, with options like filet mignon and beef brisket." [PLYWOOD]

8) Upper East Side: Fork in the Road reports movement in the space that shuttered French bistro Bandol once occupied. The new restaurant, to be called Carpe Diem, will feature Italian cuisine. Back in Novemeber, the new owners went before CB8 seeking a liquor license. [PLYWOOD]

9) Midtown: Vanishing New York writes that a 7-Eleven will be moving into the space that Arnold Hatters vacated last year. While businesses like this close all the time, Vanishing NY seems particularly miffed about this one: "In this way, every day, we are trading in this city for nothing more than trinkets and beads." [PLYWOOD]

10) Chelsea: Vanishing New York writes that Ruben's Empanadas has plans to take over the former Verve Gifts space. A curious footnote: a sign in front of the site bills the place as a "bistro and coffee shop." [PLYWOOD]

11) Gowanus: Off the Presses brings word that Mission Dolores, the upcoming project from the owners of Bar Great Henry, is on track to make its debut in the coming weeks. In addition to serving Dub pies as Bar Great Henry does, Mission Dolores will feature a large draft beer selection and a big courtyard in the rear. [PLYWOOD]
