The Vinatta Project

1) Meatpacking District: The team behind Mulberry Project in Little Italy soon be unveiling the Vinatta Project in the old Florent space in the Meatpacking District. New pictures of the space are above. [POST-PLYWOOD]

2) East Village: Gerard Renny, the man behind Stuzzicheria and Pane Panelle, will be opening a brand new Italian restaurant in the East Village on November 14. Zi’ Pep pays homage to Renny’s grandfather who had a restaurant called Pep's from 1935-1972. Zi’ Pep’s interior is a throwback to Pep's early decades in business with vintage photos, antique mirrors, and a copper-topped bar. Time Out also states that the menu will include remakes of old family favorites. [POST-PLYWOOD]

3) East Village: St. Mark's is adding yet another Asian restaurant to the block according to EV Grieve. Japadog has kept their promise in bringing their business to the U.S. by 2011, along with their slogan “Making the world alive and happy through hotdogs!” [PLYWOOD]

4) East Village: EV Grieve reports that for better or worse, Michael Bao Huynh is at it again with the unveiling new signage of Bao BQ. Bao BQ will offer a mash-up of BBQ and Asian specialties. [PLYWOOD]

5) East Village: EV Grieve has a picture of the newest gourmet sandwich shop to enter the East Village. Husband and wife team, Joe Dobias and Jill Schulster, will be opening the cleverly named Joe Dough at 135 First Avenue. From a Grub Street report in October, Joe Dough is set to open sometime in late fall. [PLYWOOD]

6) NoHo: After months of speculation comes a picture from EV Grieve of Acme Bar & Grill in the midst of its renovation. Thanks to the CB2 meeting this week, we know that Huy Chi Le from Indochine will be acting as a partner in the transformation of Acme. The family style menu among other details are still in the works. [PLYWOOD]

7) Greenwich Village: The Village Voice reports that signage has just gone up at Sticky’s Finger Joint on 31 West 8th St. Sticky’s has claimed to be the only establishment in New York City dedicated solely to chicken fingers, despite the fact that they are also offering a variety of sides and sauces. So you won’t feel too bad for eating fried chicken, everything is made from local, organic, and natural ingredients. Big surprise there. [POST-PLYWOOD]

8) Dumbo: According to Grub Street, a new café in Dumbo called Punto Bianco, or “white spot” in Italian, is set to open in the coming weeks. With the plywood peeled, a hand painted sign in the window states that the restaurant will be serving panini, salads, pastries and espresso drinks. [POST-PLYWOOD]
