Marfa, soon to be Bento Burger via EVG

1) East Village: EV Grieve and Grub Street report on Bento Burger, the new burger spot replacing Texas-themed restaurant Marfa. The owner explains to EVG: "lots of options on the burgers, probably at least 3 to 4 vegetarian, including a hemp burger, seafood, a Japanese, a Korean. A place where die hard meateaters and strict vegetarians can both call home. Cheap and fun." It should open by the end of April. [PLYWOOD]

2) Midtown: Midtown Lunch learns that Dominican restaurant Mangu will open soon on 45th St. between 3rd Ave. and Lexington. [PLYWOOD]

3) Cobble Hill: Fork in the Road spots Two 8 Two on A walk by 282 Atlantic Avenue. The new burger joint is set to open sometime this month. [PLYWOOD]

5) West Village: A tipster sends word of a "Scandinavian dessert-y looking place" called Sockerbit that's scheduled to open this month on Christopher Street between 7th Avenue and Bleecker. There's more info on the place on their website and Facebook. [PLYWOOD]
