Restaurants and bars, they come and they go. Here are a few making their debuts and bowing out this week.
Teriyaki Boy in the East Village has closed. The phone has been disconnected and the website is no longer active.
Daniel Angerer’s eight-month-old high-end hot-dog joint Brats: Dogs & Wieners has closed. Little Cheese Pub, which was next door, has moved into the space.
Birreria has finally arrived atop Mario Batali’s Eataly. The vast rooftop beer garden boasts three cask ales brewed in-house in addition to its on-tap and bottle selection.
Ronin Bar and Grill in Midtown is offering Japanese standards, like sushi, ramen, and tempura, plus “rice burgers” with fillings like organic chicken katsu and sukiyaki.
Brooklyn Heights is getting a new café-bar. Vineapple opens this weekend with a menu of baked goods, sandwiches, wine, and beer — and a rec room for the kids.
Duo opens Monday just north of Madison Square Park. LED-screen menus feature dishes like herb-roasted rack of lamb with succotash and champagne-poached Maine lobster.
After two years of delays, Leszek Gesiak is finally opening Fat Goose, a gastro-pub-style restaurant in Williamsburg.
Neapolitan pizzaiolo Giulio Adriani has set up a “test kitchen” for Forcella, his forthcoming Manhattan pizzeria, in Williamsburg.
Greenpoint is getting a Caribbean-inspired restaurant from the team behind Five Leaves. Nights and Weekends will serve habanero-marinated quail, clams and chorizo roasted in beer, and crispy rock shrimp with orange-chili aioli, with a selection of Latin-accented cocktails.
Rickshaw Dumpling has a new brick-and-mortar location in Midtown. The menu is similar to that of the West 23rd Street location.
The space at 71 Clinton Street, which most recently went from being Fat Hippo to Korean-fried-chicken shop Patate Fellow, is now called Hachember, featuring Japanese bar food.
The Moldy Fig Jazz Bar is finally open on the Lower East Side. It expects to add food within the next month.
