Chinese restaurant Atlas Kitchen opened last month in the old Legends space at 258 West 109th close to Broadway, west of Amsterdam. It’s gotten mostly positive reviews on Yelp already. “The taste is very close to what you can have in China,” wrote one Yelper. See the menu here. Thanks to Daniel for the photo.
Bar Veloce is close to opening at 466 Amsterdam Avenue between 82nd and 83rd Streets, the former home of Amaze Fusion. The “modern wine bar” has five other locations in the city. We first wrote about it here. Thanks to Holly for the photo.
A new pizza place is opening in the old Barley and Grain space on 80th and Amsterdam, Joe tells us. “They were doing work yesterday and invited my wife and I in for a slice on the house. Great Sicilian/pepperoni. Reminded me of prince street pizza. Will be great to have a real NY pizza place in the neighborhood again.”
Billy’s Bakery isn’t open yet at 410 Columbus Avenue (80th). But it’s introducing itself to the community by opening a pop-up shop to sell pies on Wednesday from noon to 6 p.m. or until supplies run out. Not a bad way to take advantage of that Thanksgiving traffic.
