Daily Provisions is opening on the UWS next month, and other happenings around the city

Danny Meyer’s neighborhood bakery Daily Provisions is getting ready to open its Upper West Side location at 375 Amsterdam Ave., at the corner of 78th Street, with a date targeting September — and new cruller flavors are in the works. Over in the East Village, a “seafood and grill” restaurant called the Boilery is opening at 58 Third Ave., between 10th and 11th streets. In Brooklyn, Mirna’s Pupuseria is now open with a menu dedicated to traditional Salvadoran pupusas. It’s located in Flatbush at 1350 Flatbush Ave., on East 26th Street.

New study claims that NYC restaurant jobs are growing in light of new wage hikes

New York City restaurants are thriving under the new minimum wage requirements, according to a study by The New School economists who support the wage increases. In the five years leading up to 2018, as the hourly wage rose from $7.25 to $15, jobs in sit-down restaurants also rose by 35 percent in all boroughs except Manhattan, where they increased by 11 percent. Fast-casual restaurants also saw a bump in employment: Jobs increased by 16 percent in Manhattan and by 22 percent in the other boroughs, which is higher than the national average of 12 percent. A previous analysis by public nonpartisan agency Independent Budget Office, though, found that NYC restaurants lost about 6,000 jobs last year when the minimum wage hit $15.

Upper West Side deli manager wants to get Mariah Carey back in his store

The manager of an Upper West Side market in which singer Mariah Carey took refuge in during a rainstorm last week is offering her a cookbook and a meal to bring her back into the store. Westside Market manager Homer Panteloglou is offering the singer a copy of the market owner Maria Zoitas’s cookbook Made With Love, and says he’ll personally make her any dish in the book. He says he’s had a crush on the singer since he was nine — and a very star struck Panteloglou started singing Carey’s songs and spilling his love for her when she walked into the store last week, a video she posted on Twitter shows. Carey’s van broke down near the market at 2589 Broadway on August 1, and she walked into the store looking for “anyone with a car,” she tweeted.
