1) Gowanus: Let's take another look at The Bahche, the massive Turkish restaurant coming to Seventh Street in Gowanus. From the outside, at least, the space is looking a whole lot like it did a couple months ago. When it's complete, it'll feature two floors inside and a big courtyard area out in front. [PLYWOOD]

2) Lower East Side: In addition to reporting on the Acme team's plans for the former Laugh Lounge space, Bowery Boogie today brings word about a new restaurant coming to 139 Essex, the former location of Indian favorite Khushie Kitchen. That space is rumored to be on its way to becoming a new location of Patacon Pisao, the popular Venezuelan food truck that also has brick-and-mortar locations in Queens and Washington Heights.

3) Upper West Side: West Side Rag has word on two coming restaurants, both of which are progressing quickly. Gotham Burger, a Teaneck, N.J.-based Kosher burger joint, will open later this month. And Emerald Inn, the 70-year-old institution that was forced to close due to a rent hike but is relocating, has put up signage at its new location on 72nd Street near West End. [PLYWOOD]

4) Lower East Side: Contra, a collab between pastry chef Fabian Von Hauske and former Isa sous Jeremiah Stone, is bringing a $55 tasting-menu-only format to 138 Orchard St. this summer. Inside Scoop SF (via Grub Street) reports that the duo is doing a preview in San Francisco in a couple of weeks. [PLYWOOD]

5) East Village: Fro-yo chain Red Mango is making a return to the East Village, where it briefly had a location a couple years ago. That first one was on St Marks Place; per EV Grieve this one will be on Second Avenue just below East Fourth, next door to a gelato shop (of course). [PRE-PLYWOOD]
