1) Greenpoint: The owners of Williamsburg cafe/bakery Bakeri have opened a second location on Freeman Street. Greenpointers reports that the pastry selection is similar to the original, but a little smaller for now. There are breakfast pastries, cakes, and cookies, plus breads that range from ciabatta to a dense rye. Eventually sandwiches and other lunch items like those served at the Williamsburg location will be added to the menu. Status: Certified Open. 105 Freeman Street.

2) Hell's Kitchen: After expanding with a smaller take-out shop last summer, Hell's Kitchen's popular ramen joint Tabata has just opened a third location a little farther north in the neighborhood. According to Fork in the Road, owner Maung Linn wanted to "create a more refined experience" at this one, so there's a sushi bar and a full bar at Tabata 3, alongside the same menu of noodle dishes. Linn is also planning to open more Tabatas around the city, and is currently scouting for locations in Brooklyn. Status: Certified Open. 245 West 51st Street.

3) Williamsburg: East Village coffee shop chain The Bean just opened its first Brooklyn outpost. As Bedford + Bowery reports, the new cafe features a mosaic of New York Harbor in the entryway, a desktop computer terminal, and seating for 60. The menu is the same as the ones offered at the Manhattan locations, with pastries, sandwiches, wraps, smoothies, and specialty coffee drinks as well as the usual coffee and tea. Status: Certified Open. 101 Bedford Ave., 718-387-1871.

4) Prospect Heights: Williamsburg's L.A. Burrito has opened a third outpost on Underhill Avenue. The menu is the same list of fat California-style burritos plus fajitas, tacos, and nachos as the ones at the Bedford Avenue original and the Bushwick location. There are also fresh beverages like mango lemonade and tamarind juice. Status: Certified Open. 43 Underhill Ave., 718-484-3615.

5) Kips Bay: Kailash Parbat, an Indian restaurant chain that started as a street stall in Mumbai, has opened its first US location on 27th Street. The menu includes some of the only Sindhi dishes in the city, like koki, a whole wheat flat bread with yogurt and pickles, and chole, a chickpea stew. There are also chaats, Indian standards, and a few sandwiches. Status: Certified Open. 99 Lexington Ave., 212-679-4232.

6) Flatiron: A new juice shop called, appropriately enough, The Juice Shop, opened yesterday on Sixth Avenue. Owner Brian Schoenberger used to run popular juice shop Liquiteria, but with this new spot, he's expanding into the raw food game as well. The menu includes whole grain lunch bowls, an oatmeal bar, and snacks like kale chips (not all of the food is raw). There are also smoothies, nut milks, and infused waters alongside all the standard juices. Status: Certified Open. 688 6th Ave., 646-918-6081.

7) Midtown: A healthy Mexican lunch spot called Al Horno opened recently. The "lean Mexican kitchen" has a menu of burritos, tortas, "energy tacos," and plates with names like "fit fajita" and ingredients like turkey chorizo and low-fat sour cream. The restaurant also has a juice and smoothie bar, and a short all-day breakfast menu. Status: Certified Open. 417 W 47th St., 212-977-1000.

8) Clinton Hill: A new bagel spot called Myrtle Bagel opened last week, Brownstoner reports. According to DNAinfo, it's owned by the same people who own La Bagel Delight in Fort Greene. It will offer bagels, egg sandwiches, and other "hot-off-the-grill items". Status: Certified Open. 410 Myrtle Ave., 718-858-4916.
