Kung Fu Bing, Snack Dragon, Qathra, and More Coming Soon

1) Carroll Gardens: A tipster writes of the above photo, "Primemeats gets a great review! Buttermilk Channel is one of the most successful openings of last year! The southern part of Court Street has become an appealing destination. It seems a new venture is coming up on that same stretch, few doors up from Buttermilk. I have been hearing rumors of a Spanish tapas/winebar." [PLYWOOD]

2) Soho: Another tipster writes, "Talk about plywood...they are completely encasing the corner at Mercer and Prince where Nespresso is going. Don't think landmarks allow them to alter actual storefront so it's strange that they'd spend so much to do this." [PLYWOOD]

3) Lower East Side: Bowery Boogie reports that the East Village's popular late night taco stand Snack Dragon is expanding to a new space on 164 Orchard St. It will open as soon as next Tuesday. [PLYWOOD]

4) Hell's Kitchen: Life with Food and Drink has news on two plywood spots. Zigolini's Pizza Bar is coming soon to 9th Ave. between 46th and 47th. She also gets a sneak peek at the new location of Grand Sichuan opening on 46th between 8th and 9th Aves. [PLYWOOD]

5) Lower East Side: Bowery Boogie brings the good news that Kung Fu Bing is reopening on 189 East Houston St., the old Ashkara space. The kitchy Chinese fast food restaurant closed down in March at 79 Division Street after eight months in business. [PLYWOOD]

6) East Village: EV Grieve gets some new shots of 13th Step, the new bar going into the old Telephone Bar & Grill space. [PLYWOOD]

7) Queens: Grub Street notices a Craigslist ad for Darryl Strawberry's new restaurant, Strawberry's Sports Grill in Douglaston, Queens. [PRE-PLYWOOD]

8) Ditmas Park: The Brooklyn Paper reports that Qathra, an espresso bar serving Egyptian food will open soon in the old Super Deli space. [PLYWOOD}
