We have reported on several new restaurants that are getting close to opening, including a replacement for Dovetail called Leonti on 77th Street. But the Times just announced several other new restaurants that locals will get to enjoy over the next few months.
Mokum, a “bakery coffee bar restaurant”, is expected to open at 464 Amsterdam Avenue (83rd Street) in October. The restaurant has a website up with few details so far. The Times says it’s being opened by “Tea Zegarac Pollock, a molecular geneticist who said she “always wanted to own a restaurant,” and her chef, Benjamin Vaschetti.” Both are Upper West Siders and Vaschetti apparently will make sure ratatouille is available every day.
Le Petit Rooster is opening in place of Gastronomie 491 at 491 Columbus Avenue (83rd Street) in October. It will be a wine bar, bistro and rotisserie spot, the Times says.
Flying Fisherman and Fish on the Fly will replace AG Kitchen at 269 Columbus Avenue (72nd Street) in September. “There will also be a takeout adjunct, Fish on the Fly, for lobster rolls and the like.”
Tiki Chick will serve drinks, small plates and a fried chicken sandwich at 517 Amsterdam Avenue (85th Street) in November. It’s the latest offering from Jacob Hadjigeorgis, who also started Jacob’s Pickles, Maison Pickle and Lucky Pickle Dumpling.
Sushi Inoue Lincoln Center is opening at 35 West 64th Street in October. “Sushi master Shinichi Inoue, from the Michelin-starred Harlem restaurant Sushi Inoue, will oversee the fish at a grand two-floor offshoot, Sushi Inoue Lincoln Center, in the former Picholine space.”
