Fletcher's Brooklyn Barbecue in Gowanus.

1) Lower East Side: A new bar called Miller's Near & Far is coming to the former Kuta Satay Lounge space at 65 Rivington St. It's owned by Christopher Miller, a well-known nightlife guy attached to the Tribeca sports bar Warren 77. [Bowery Boogie]

2) Gowanus: Signage is up at Fletcher's Brooklyn Barbecue, the new operation coming to 433 Third Ave in South Brooklyn by "BBQ Billy" Fletcher. According to a tipster, the interior is starting to come along nicely, so this opening should not be far off. [PLYWOOD]

3) Tribeca: A liquor license notice went up on the door of a space at West Broadway and White Street, which Tribeca Citizen learns is a new location of the West Village wine bar Aria. As of Monday, the deal was not 100 percent certain, but it looks likely. [Tribeca Citizen]
4) Greenpoint: Following the lead of Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory, Sarah Conklin plans to open a new Mediterranean restaurant on Commercial Street near the lovely Newtown Creek. She hopes for the restaurant to be both a destination for New Yorkers and a better food option for the cast and crew of Boardwalk Empire, which films nearby. [DNAinfo]

5) Upper East Side: A liquor license application has also been filed for the former Elaine's space. The name on the app is developer Louis Ceruzzi Jr., not developer Robert Skolnick who was involved in the previous attempt to put something in that space. [Grub Street]

6) Bowling Green: The food truck and sandwich shop Shorty's is getting set to open a new location at 62 Pearl St. The mini-chain has locations in Midtown and Flatiron and will now bring its menu of cheese steaks and roast beef pork sandwiches, massive beer list, and "whiskey wall" to this downtown space. [Downtown Lunch]

7) Harlem: Work is totally done and the gas has been turned on at Maison Harlem, the Kickstarter-funded French restaurant coming uptown. It should open next week. Also coming to Harlem: a new café called Boulevard Bistro. [Harlem Bespoke]

8) Prospect Heights: A new Mexican restaurant is coming to the corner of Flatbush and St. Marks. It's going to have a sidewalk café, a bar, and a takeout window and will not be (as previously expected) and 24-hour liquor store. [Brownstoner]

9) Lower East Side: Eastwood, a crowdfunded bar and restaurant coming to 221 East Broadway, has released a video explaining the project's concept. From the video: "Think West Coast, south of the border, bar on the beach." They're targeting a late October, early November opening. [Indiegogo, The Lo Down]

10) Chelsea: The owners of Hell's Kitchen Italian restaurant Bocca de Bacco are expanding to Chelsea. They also recently opened a new location in the Theater District. [Zagat Buzz]

11) Park Slope: Brooklyn Central, the new pizzeria former Sottocasa pizzaiolas Matthew Hyland and Roberto Patriarca, is getting awfully close to being ready. Paper's still on the doors but it's due to open on October 10. Also coming to Park Slope: a new restaurant called Hamilton's, by the owners of Alchemy. [Here's Park Slope]

12) Nolita: A place called the Little Fox Café is coming to 62 Kenmare. Bowery Boogie took a peek inside and reports that the interior appears pretty much ready to go. This will be primarily a coffee shop, though the owners have applied to get a license to sell wine. [Bowery Boogie]

13) Bed-Stuy: Here's another step in Bed-Stuy's march towards gentrification: Simplicity Wine Bar has begun renovations on a space on Malcolm X Boulevard. [Brownstoner]
