A long-awaited Italian restaurant and a terrarium store just opened, as a McDonald’s and Urban Outfitters are on the way out.
Risotteria, the new gluten-free Italian spot on the corner of 78th and Amsterdam, has finally opened its doors, and it looked like locals were eager to try it when we stopped by last weekend. For hours and menus, click here.
Urban Outfitters on the corner of 72nd and Broadway plans to close on June 20 to make way for a Bloomingdale’s Outlet. An employee said the employees at the store will be transferred to other stores or positions. They’re having a sale of 50% off of certain items.
McDonald’s on Broadway between 81st and 82nd street closed a few days ago. A manager there had told one of our tipsters that the rent was simply too high. Thanks to Daniel, Charles, Terry, Jeff and several others for the tips. Click the going-away sign below to enlarge.
Luludi, which sells terrariums, just opened at 324a Columbus Avenue, near 75th street. “I bought something from them when they were at the weekend market, and I’m really impressed with how friendly and helpful the sales people are – great customer service, even for those of us who (like me) tend to accidentally kill plants,” our tipster Hillary writes.

Thanks for the tips, everyone! Keep them coming.
