Joseph Leonard Reopens Tomorrow, and Veselka Bowery Will Open in March


Two months after it was shut down by an electrical fire, Joseph Leonard is back in business: Per Eater, the Sheridan Square restaurant will open for dinner tomorrow.

Farther east, it looks like Veselka Bowery will debut “in the middle of March,” according to The Feast’s interview with the restaurant’s owner, Tom Birchard. Birchard says that the second Veselka will be “very similar” to the original Second Avenue Veselka, though it will also have a full liquor license and a larger kitchen that will allow for “more involved dishes.” It will also be open 24/7, so “people will very much know they’re at another Veselka.”
