1) Upper East Side: Signage has gone up for Cucina Ciano, the reboot of the two-and-a-half-year-old Flatiron restaurant Ciano that shuttered abruptly in April. The chef at the relocated/renamed restaurant is Tien Huyn, who was sous there under Shea Gallante (who left when it shuttered). The restaurant is still shooting for an August opening in the former Carpe Diem space on East 78th. [PLYWOOD]

2) Lower East Side: In addition to reopening their next-door clam shack last month, the team behind year-old LES restaurant Grey Lady are reportedly eyeing the former Interstate Food & Liquor space at 74 Orchard St, Bowery Boogie reports. The owners are heading to CB3 on Monday to defend their liquor license app. [PRE-PLYWOOD]

3) Flatiron: It's not much to look at right now beyond its big "play here soon" lettering, but check out the coming restaurant at the Museum of Sex on Fifth Avenue. MadParkNews reported at the end of last month that it should open "within the next couple months," and there is no way that this will be anything other than completely awesome. [PLYWOOD]

4) Gramercy: A sports bar could be taking over the space that formerly housed Bistro Lamazou, the North African restaurant on Third Avenue that closed last summer, pcvstBee hears. [PLYWOOD]

5) Hell's Kitchen: DNAinfo has two updates from the West Side. First, there's news that the Snack folks are opening a second location of West Village Greek restaurant Snack Taverna is expanding to 522 Ninth Ave., right by the Port Authority Bus Terminal. And coming a few blocks north on Ninth Avenue is a new location of UWS standby Chirping Chicken. [PLYWOOD]
