New & Noteworthy (week of Feb. 24)

While there are plenty of new restaurant openings, I have nothing to add to the list this week. I will say that I finally visited Suzanne Cupps’ 232 Bleecker and was really impressed. I am in midst of writing my observations which I hope to post soon. Let’s just say I haven’t been surprised about a PB&J iteration since I visited Alinea. In the meantime, the current list offers a range of cuisines and dining experiences. Happy dining (and enjoy Leap Day)!

232 Bleeker Opened mid-December

Da Toscano Opened early-February

Ernesto’s Opened early-January

Kochi Opened early-November

Lekka Burger Opened mid-November

Nami NoriOpened early-October 

Piggyback NYC Opened mid-January

Sampotei Opened late-January

Thai Diner Opened mid-February

This weekly list is not comprehensive of every new place but a short alphabetized list of new places that I think are notable.  Restaurants that have been open for more than four months will not be included.
