1) Bushwich: The guys who run the blog BushwickBK are opening a Florida-style (read: Cuban-American) café called Cafeteria La Mejor. It's due to open sometime around September 1. [Brownstoner]

2) Downtown Brooklyn: Speaking of Cuban food, DoBro is about to get a new location of the chain Sophie's Cuban Cuisine at 27 Smith St. It should open in early September. [Brownstoner]

3) Gramercy: The Stand Comedy Club & Restaurant is coming to 239 Third Ave. Signage is up, and the place is due to open "sometime this summer," so very soon. [pcvstBee]

4) Lower East Side: The owners of Stanton Pizza are opening a new pizza shop at 181 East Broadway. It should open in mid-September. [TLD]

6) Lower East Side: The new bar at 21 Essex St. has a name: Beverly's. Run by former waitstaff from the bygone Sweet Paradise (where Lead Belly will be), Beverly's was granted a full liquor license at Monday's CB 3 meeting. [Bowery Boogie]

7) Lower East Side: The plywood's come down at 188 Allen St., revealing a rustic log cabin-looking exterior at what will apparently be a "German fast food" biergarten. [Bowery Boogie]

8) Park Slope: A new Subway is taking over the former Leaf & Bean space, which is only noteworthy because the 1930s-era facade should be protected from Subway's corporate blandness by Landmark laws. [HPS]

9) Midtown: Calling itself "the New York Deli of Desserts," Smush is due to open soon on 40th between Fifth and Sixth avenues, slinging a wide selection of ice cream sandwiches. [ML]

10) East Village: A branch of the slice pizza chain Joey Pepperoni is opening in the former Ikura Sushi space on First Avenue between 13th and 14th streets. Signage is up, advertising Joey's $1 slices. [EV Grieve]
