LOWER EAST SIDE — Plywood is still up at the space adjacent to Clinton Street Baking Co. where the pancake masters are planning their expansion. But, a peek inside reveals that the space is at least as large as the original location. Here's hoping that means shorter wait times at brunch. 2 Clinton Street.[PLYWOOD]

LOWER EAST SIDE — Golden Cadillac and PKNY alum Giuseppe Gonzalez is still working on his own British pub-meets NYC cocktail den Suffolk Arms. Plywood's covering the outside, but a man leaving the construction site says the bar should open in  late August or early September. 269 E. Houston [PLYWOOD]

namaste park slope


PARK SLOPE — An Indian restaurant from Astoria called Namaste is moving into the spot, which until recently, held Zito's Sandwich Shoppe. 195 5th Avenue. [PLYWOOD, Here's Park Slope]

MIDTOWN — Jonathan Waxman's remake of Jams looks like it's almost there. White paper is up in the windows and staff was in the house yesterday for more training. [PLYWOOD]

LONG ISLAND CITY — Longtime neighborhood staple The Waterfront Crabhouse is making a comeback with a new owner. The restaurant closed in February when then-owner Tony Mazzarella passed away. The new team is leasing the restaurant from the Mazzarella family and hopes to reopen at the end of this year or in early 2016. 2-03 Borden Avenue [DNAinfo]

UPPER WEST SIDE — A bakery called Boule & Cherie is moving into that bizarre exoskeleton building at 170 Amsterdam Avenue. That's pretty close to the new branch of Breads Bakery and Lincoln Center. Starting picking out a purse (or murse) big enough to smuggle cookies into all of those Met performances. [West Side Rag]

PROSPECT-LEFFERTS GARDENS — Sweets maker Michael Allen is opening a dessert shop that sells gelato, cakes, and house-made chocolates called Desserts by Michael Allen. The shop is slated for an August opening. 1149 Nostrand Avenue [DNAinfo]

FIDI — Mini-chain Dos Toros just inked an agreement for a location near Wall Street, in a section of the neighborhood with few solid lunch options. Hopefully, this will offer some relief. 101 Maiden Lane [Commercial Observer]

PARK SLOPE — Miguel Jaguande hopes to open his Windsor Roast House by early August. In addition to meats, he'll serve veggie burgers and salmon burgers at 426A 7th Avenue. Right across the street, a place called Tea & Tea is moving in, but it's too early to tell if it's a cafe or shop. 427 7th Avenue. [DNAinfo]
