This week, we got word of a new seafood restaurant and a Kosher burger joint opening on the Upper West Side.
Flex Mussels, a seafood restaurant with locations in the West Village and Upper East Side, is set to open in the next few months on Columbus Avenue between 84th and 85th streets in the home of Spanish restaurant Casa Pomona. DNAinfo says it’s expected to seat 100 people, have a large raw bar and hold happy hour every day. Its menu includes several kinds of mussels, as well as other seafood dishes like crab cakes and a variety of salads. Check out the whole menu here.
It’s sad to see Casa Pomona go after that restaurant bounced back from problems in its building. An employee at the restaurant didn’t have information about the closing.
Kosher burger restaurant Prime Burger opened this week in the basement level of Kosher Japanese steakhouse Prime KO on 85th street between Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue. Prime Burger will serve Angus beef burgers and a wide array of appetizers and finger foods. The grand opening is set for April 23, after Passover. Here are some specials:
o Appetizers: Mini Corn Dogs, Stuffed Quinoa Cakes, Beef Chorizo Sausages

o Hotdogs: Mexican Hotdog wrapped in a crisp tortilla, BB Beef Hotdog and Italian Hotdog served with roasted peppers
