Artichoke Basille Pizza Is Coming to Astoria; Teriyaki Boy Mounts a Comeback

There is no need for you to get splinters, Eater is here to pull back the plywood and gaze into the future.

Astoria: Pizza cousins Francis Garcia and Sal Basille will bring the seventh outpost of their wildly popular chain Artichoke Basille Pizza to 31 Street in January 2015. They will take over the space formerly that housed 50-year-old institution Frankie’s Pizza, which shuttered back in October. [Plywood]

Midtown East: Teriyaki Boy will make a triumphant return to NYC, with a new location on Second Avenue and 44th Street. The cheap eats spot beloved by Midtown Lunchers had five locations at one time and was famous for their $3.99 lunch special. That deal won't be back, instead they will endeavor to make the "best chicken teriyaki in the country." [DNAInfo]

Lower East Side: The plywood is up at Soho House and the sounds of construction are apparently filling the street as the addition of a conservatory atop the building commences. The controversial project has survived assaults from both NIMBY's and preservationists. [BB]

Crown Heights: Crosby Coffee will open a doughnut shop tentatively called Elsie's at 1031 Bergen Street in January. Also in the 'hood a new coffee shop is coming to the corner of St. Johns Place and Rogers Avenue. [Brownstoner]

Cobble Hill: No one should hold their breath for the brick oven pizza and restaurant that has been threatening to open on 195 Smith street for at least two years. [Brownstoner]

Midtown West: The curiously named Kiabbaca will bring artisanal pizza and beer to 639 10th Avenue. [Plywood]
