1) FiDi: The first signage for BLT's newest location BLT Bar & Grill is now up in the site of the upcoming W Hotel & Residences. See above. [PLYWOOD]

2) Upper West Side: The Upper West Side Independent brings word that well known Spanish chef Jesus Nunez is opening a tapas restaurant called Graffit in the old Levana Kosher restaurant at 141 West 69th St. [PLYWOOD]

3) Flatiron: Roving photog Will Femia (along with the kids over at Fork in the Road) notices a lot of new movement in Flatiron. Joe Bastianich and Mario Batali's new multistory complex Eataly has new signage up on 23rd St. between 5th and 6th. Nearby, the new Chock Full o' Nuts signage graces the former home of the Comfort Diner. It will be the first NYC location for the chain in 30 years. And lastly, a vegetarian restaurant called Terri is taking the Smoochies space. [PLYWOOD]

4) Greenpoint: A tipster sends word that an empty storefront on Franklin and Noble street is going to open as a branch of Le Gamin, the mini French chain that has changed hands over the years. They've applied for a backyard and full liquor license: "It's an unlikely spot for a restaurant, but this will no doubt be the neighborhood's best bet, once its open." [PLYWOOD]

5) Williamsburg: Racked reports that North 4th Street bar space Night Owl will become a store and bar called Kingdom on April 1: "The shop will showcase Bland's own collection of denim and hand-screened sportswear while remaining a full service bar." [PLYWOOD]

6) FiDi: A FiDi operative sends word that a a coffee shop called Beta Coffee is opening on Fulton Street near Water St. It's in the site of a former Dunkin' Donuts, which relocated up the street. [PLYWOOD]

7) Williamsburg: Finally, Femia submits photos of some new Williamsburg developments: a spot called Night of Joy on Lorimer and Meeker, a new location of Graham Ave.'s Carmine's down on Union Ave., and a restaurant called Odyssea one on Metropolitan just east of the BQE. [PLYWOOD]
