1) East Village: Davey's Ice Cream, the city's newest from-scratch ice cream parlor, opened on Friday. Graphic designer-turned-ice-cream-maker David Yoo is currently selling flavors like Mexican vanilla and "strong coffee." Bedford + Bowery reports that Yoo eventually plans to offer baked goods, floats, shakes, and ice cream cakes. Status: Certified Open. 137 First Ave., 212-228-8032.

2) East Village: A Brit-inspired bar called The Winslow opened last week. The cocktail menu, developed by Dominic Venegas of The NoMad, focuses on gin, and many of the drinks are mixed with housemade tonics. According to Zagat, the bar also has 20 British beers on tap, and a menu with things like fish and chips, and crumpets topped with duck confit. Status: Certified Open. 243 East 14th St., 212-777-7717.

3) Soho: Tribeca Citizen hears word that the first U.S. outpost of the Moscow-based, Ukrainian-style restaurant Korchma Taras Bulba opened recently. The restaurant serves traditional Ukrainian dishes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and it has a wait staff dressed up in traditional garb. Status: Certified Open. 357 West Broadway, 212-510-7510.

4) Flatiron: The Museum of Sex just opened up Nice & Sweet, a coffee shop adjacent to the museum. Along with coffee, the cafe serves pastries and sandwiches from Dressler and Veritas alum Dalia Jurgensen, and coffee or Champagne-based cocktails from Jim Kearns of The NoMad, Pegu Club, and others. Kearns will be the bar director at Play, a bar soon to open behind the cafe, but for now his drinks are available along with everything else until 9 p.m. During a daytime happy hour from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m., all coffee cocktails and specialty drinks are half price. Status: Certified Open. 1 East 27th St., 212-447-7529.

5) Lower East Side: The bar formerly known as Sweet Grapes Wine Bar is now a restaurant and bar called Old Man Hustle. The same owners (who also run Flowers Cafe and Flowers on Essex) are still in charge, but have transformed the place into a "hot dog shack by day and art bar by night." They have beer and wine along with the hot dogs, and host performances that range from music to storytelling. Status: Certified Open. 39 Essex St., 212-253-7747.
