This fall has been filled with restaurant openings, and three more restaurants recently came across our radar.
Park West: Pomodoro owner Peter Coundouris plans to open a new “American” restaurant in the former home of Mediterranean restaurant Epices at 103 West 70th Street next month. The restaurant will have a bar, a lounge and a backyard seating area,” says DNAinfo. “He plans on having “wine and cheese” and beer nights in the space, which is about 800 square feet with a 400-square-foot patio…Small plates will be available as well as classic American choices like filet mignon and hamburgers.”
Amsterdam Burger Co.: The old Mike’s Pizzeria 654 Amsterdam Avenue (near 92nd Street). has been transformed into a new Kosher burger spot. A long discussion about the new place erupted recently on Chowhound, with some complaining that they only cook burgers medium-well but others calling the burgers “fantastic.” There is also some mention of “bacon,” which must be fake, right? Or have the Kosher rules changed (kidding!). See the menu here.
Andanada 141: After chef Jesus Nunez left Gastroarte a couple of months ago, the restaurant at 141 West 69th Street closed down. But it’s recently reopened with a new hotshot Spanish chef named Manuel Berganza, who has led restaurants to 2 Michelin stars in the past, according to DNAinfo. “The menu at Andanada 141, which opened three weeks ago, includes Pate de Cabracho, a scorpion fish flan served with cauliflower foam and eggplant caviar, and Arroz Con Leche, rice pudding topped with cinnamon ice cream and crispy fried rice.” See the full menu here.
