Cubana Cafe May Return to Smith Street; Craft Beer Bar The Wilky Coming to Bed-Stuy

Eight places in the works around NYC.

CARROLL GARDENS — Cubana Cafe went dark abruptly this spring but it looks like it might be making a comeback. Construction's going on, but the original decor is still intact, just a bit spruced up, and a construction captain told local blog Pardon Me for Asking the space will reopen in about three weeks. 272 Smith Street.
