Floridita, desperately trying to reopen, via Harlem Bespoke.

1) Manhattanville: The new location of Floridita has finally gotten some signage, per Harlem Bespoke. The decades-old Cuban restaurant has been trying to reopen in an old warehouse on 125th Street, but work on the location has been delayed for a year by landlord disputes and an asbestos problem in the space. Dinosaur Bar-B-Q sits in the other half of that building. [PLYWOOD]

2) Park Slope: Making the rounds earlier this week was a photo of a sign announcing the impending arrival of another frozen yogurt shop, this one a Yogurtland, in Park Slope. Originally posted by FiPS, someone has scrawled "WTF another one?" on the sign, because surely Park Slope has reached its fro yo saturation point, right? [PRE-PLYWOOD]

3) Prospect Heights: Construction on the Bar Corvo spinoff on Lincoln Place in Prospect Heights is coming along, reports Brownstoner. The new location's name and concept have yet to be announced. [PLYWOOD]

4) Williamsburg: Oregano, which Zagat assumes (probably correctly) is an Italian restaurant, is coming to 100 Berry Street in Williamsburg. No other details are available. [PLYWOOD]

5) Hell's Kitchen: Zagat also gets word that Eighth Avenue is getting yet another Asian operation called Setya Eastern Kitchen. Setya will be at the corner of Eighth and 46th Street. [PRE-PLYWOOD]

6) Washington Heights: Eater hears that the owners of the recently-relocated wine shop Vines on Pine are planning a Mediterranean small plates restaurant for their original location on Pinehurst Avenue. [PRE-PLYWOOD]

7) Park Slope: Fifth Avenue dive bar O'Connor's, which closed for renovations back in June, is finally getting close to reopening. Here's Park Slope talked to owner Mike Maher, who said that construction is obviously way behind schedule but that he hopes to reopen in six weeks. O'Connor's has been a Park Slope institution since 1931. [PLYWOOD]
