New, 1 comment

8 new restaurants and bars to know about this week.


CROWN HEIGHTS — Spitzer's Corner manager David Moon opened his own place Bunsmith, serving Korean fusion food. The buns here are stuffed with everything from classic pork belly to grilled artichoke and eel. There are also just a few sides like kimchi and edamame in pork fat.  Make sure to catch the bizarro mural of Steve Jobs, Jiro Ono and Notorious B.I.G. dreaming of buns. Status: Certified open. 789 Franklin Avenue.

BARCLAYS AREA — An outpost of famed pizza chain Patsy's is now serving pies near Barclay's in that noman's land that not quite Park Slope, not quite Fort Greene. This location isn't under the management of the original, so things might be a bit different. Status: Certified open. 450 Dean Street.



WEST VILLAGE — A panino-meets-baguette sandwich shop called Panette is now open, notes a tipster. Status: Certified open. 310 West 14th Street.

EAST VILLAGE — A pizza shop called Nonna's just opened its doors. Apparently, it's operated by a grandson and his nonna (grandma in Italian). There's no connection to the pizzeria with a similar name on the LES, but according to EV Grieve. Status: Certified open. 201 Avenue A.

UPPER EAST SIDE — In 2013, Zesty's pizzeria was forced to shutter after 31 years in the same space. This month, the team reopened at a space just a block away with the name Zesty Pizzeria & Salumeria, notes DNAinfo. The pie menu is still the same, but there are additions to the menu like Italian heroes. Status: Certified open. 1670 3rd Avenue.

RIDGEWOOD — German beer hall and music venue Bierlichen is named for the word to describe a beer comma, or more accurately a beer corpse, notes Gothamist. There are 10 beers on tap here, including several German ones of course, along with bratwurst, knackwurst, and pretzels that can come with a beer and cheese dip. There are some themed nights and live music going down. Status: Certified open. 582 Seneca Avenue.

PARK SLOPE — Fry and poutine specialists at the Perfect Potato are still getting some things in order, but the shop appears to be soft open, according to Park Slope Stoop. Status: Soft open. 172 5th Avenue.

LOWER EAST SIDE — The new location of Adventure Cafe is one part adventure tour launch point, one part cafe serving Cafe Grumpy Coffee and Dough doughnuts, says Gothamist. The team at Sourced Adventures offers day trips to the Rockaways, kayaking excursions, and the like. Status: Certified open. 85 Delancey Street.
