Restaurants and bars, they come and they go. Here are a few making their debuts and bowing out this week.
Following the fire at the corner of Avenue and 2nd Street yesterday, Kelly’s Irish Pub and Discovery Wines are shuttered.
Town Tavern, which was meant to be closed temporarily until it reopened under new management, will indeed reopen, but as the 3 Sheets Saloon, thanks to the owners of boozy-named Down the Hatch, Off the Wagon, the Stumble Inn, and the 13th Step.
After 46 years in business, O’Neals has closed its doors for good. A new location of Stephen Hanson’s Atlantic Grill will take over the space later this summer.
Fort Greene gets a new Italian in Dino, which will specialize in Northern Italian favorites like bucatini all’amartriciana, and veal meatballs.

Tiella brings small Italian plates by a Bostonian to Midtown East. Expect seafood and buffala mozzarella, oven-roasted scallops with pecorino, and black ink fettuccine.
Chelsea’s Fashion 26 gets a new rooftop lounge-slash-model hangout. Rare View is designed like an alfresco sauna with cocktails.
The long-awaited Nuevo Latino by the Flatiron is finally opening. Nuela, first expected in late 2008, will turn out South American-accented fare, including 15 different ceviches.
Eddie Huang’s Baohaus follow-up, Xiao Ye, was also highly anticipated. Expect fried chicken cutlets and dumplings at this tribute to Taiwanese night-market fare.
