Restaurants and bars, they come and they go. Here are a few making their debuts and bowing out this week. If you hear of any new openings or closings, let us know.
The Porch appears to be giving up its space in the East Village. A source says that an Indian restaurant will move in.
Stuffed Artisan Cannolis, on the Lower East Side, is also giving up the ghost. The owners of Fredi Sandwich Bar are, reportedly, intending to turn it into Dorado Tacos.
Sushein, one of those conveyor-belt sushi spots, has just opened in Tribeca. It’s not just any conveyor-belt sushi spot, though: It’s also kosher.
Saxon + Parole has finally arrived in the space formerly known as Double Crown. AvroKO is calling it a “twist” on your typical surf-and-turf joint.

Fleisher’s Grass-Fed & Organic Meats is bringing its pasture-raised beef, lamb, and pork, and free-range, organic poultry to Park Slope.
