A new “Slovenian American” restaurant called Pekarna has soft-opened at 594 Amsterdam Avenue at 89th Street. “We are currently serving Dinner during the week and we’ll do Brunch service on Saturdays and Sundays,” Pekarana’s website says. (A sign outside had said they were opening December 1, but no one was picking up the phone.) The restaurant has several event spaces, though Covid-19 is likely to impact how they’re used for now. An early Yelp user called the prices “eminently reasonable.” The restaurant has posted its menus here. Thanks to Rachel, Dave Cook and Emily for the tips.
A new bagel spot called Broad Nosh Bagels is opening at 2350 Broadway at 86th Street, the former home of Cafe 86. There’s not much about them online, but a sign says it’s opening December 10. Thanks to Arielle, and Paul I. for the tips.
A restaurant called Skyooerd serving “worldly skewers” opened a few weeks ago at 446 Columbus Avenue between 81st and 82nd Streets. “Skyooerd is proud to create worldly skewers that reflect the beautiful diversity of New York City,” the website says. “Our mission is to honor the flavors of many cuisines by cooking with high quality ingredients to celebrate our differences and bring people together through food.” Check out the menu of skewers here. Apparently, three or four skewers make a meal (served over rice) and each skewer is generally $3.50 to $6. It’s only open now for delivery and pickup, and all orders must be placed online.
The Brooks Brothers at 1944 Broadway at 65th Street is now listed as permanently closed on Google and is no longer on the Brooks Brothers website. Thanks to Upper West Sider for the tip.
