When one restaurant’s doors close, another restaurant’s doors open in fast-paced New York City, and every Friday we’ll fill you in on what opened up around town this week. This week: Astoria gets its caffeine fix, po’boys hit Bushwick, and the East Village gets a new Asian-American restaurant.
Honey House, 334 East 11th Street
Honey House, a coffee shop, has opened in the East Village. The small space uses Counter Culture beans for its brews and will soon offer pastries as well.
Orleans, 603 Hart Street, Brooklyn
Orleans is bringing New Orleans-style po’boys to Bushwick. Look for everything from the classic fried oyster po’boy to the more offbeat vegan hot sausage po’boy.
Tuome, 536 East 5th Street, 646-833-7811
Formerly of Eleven Madison Park and Commerce, Thomas Chen now has a restaurant of his own. Tuome is serving up Asian-American dishes such as octopus with XO sauce, scallops with a foie gras sauce and a Berkshire-pork “pig out” that serves two.
60 Beans, 36-02 Ditmars Boulevard, Queens
Astoria has recently seen an influx of high-end coffee shops, and 60 Beans is one of the newest entrants. Located on the last stop of the N/Q train, the coffee shop is serving up coffee as well as Dough donuts and pastries from Balthazar and Ceci Cela. The interior features marble countertops, wrought-iron details and wood flooring. 60 Beans is now open daily.
