A restaurant with a terrific name — Infamous Chicken — has opened at 1012 Amsterdam Avenue between 109th and 110th Street. It’s owned by the same people as Cibo e Vino and Marlow Bistro. We first reported on plans for the restaurant at a liquor license hearing in February. The menu, which we’ve posted below, is full of savory meats, including various kinds of poultry. It’s not clear if it costs extra to get an infamous chicken. Thanks to Matthew and Daniel for the photos.
Blue Bottle Coffee is getting closer to opening on 73rd and Amsterdam, in the former home of Gina la Fornarina (which has moved a few blocks South). Blue Bottle has a cult-like following, and is known for working closely with farmers. “It’s coffee that is obsessively sourced, with provenance so detailed that buyers like Freeman can not only tell you the names of some of the people who pick it but describe the shade trees under which it grows.” Thanks to Marie for the photo.
