NY: August Restaurant Openings

august 03, 2010

new york | august restos.

fun in the sun continues this month as things look A-okay. but be sure to get your pinky out and pac it in before summer's end. it will be here before you know it.

pac it in.

the crew behind french brunch hotspot bagatelle is taking you to italy, this time with villa pacri, a three-story mecca that includes a swanky upstairs dining room called la gazette, an italian-style coffee shop, and a basement lounge (a must in the mepa district). leaving no detail out, a rooftop lounge is also in the works to round out this space (formerly merkato 55) that's covered in colorful tiles, wine glass chandeliers, café tables and giant french doors. munch on homemade arancini (to die for), meatballs or mozzarella antipasti, or opt for one of the resto's signature pastas (the vongole is a must). and until the dining room opens, there's plenty of spirits to imbibe, as well as a lengthly list of italian focused wines. now open. 55 gansevoort street. at greenwich. 212.924.5559. www.villapacri.com


fresh off the opening of the food hall at the plaza hotel, todd english cooks up something new at another NYC spot. this time, the intercontinental is the house and ça va (french for "okay") is the restaurant. designed by jeffrey beers, lighting and glass play a major role in the setting. think hanging pendants, candles and bauhaus-era david weeks chandeliers. the menu focuses on french fare like artichoke-crusted skate wing, whole roasted fish, bouillabaisse and todd's cassoulet. grab-and-go dining in pre-made picnic baskets are avail next door at ça va march. 310 west 44th street. at 8th. 212.803.4545. now open. www.cavatoddenglish.com


pinky out.

had your fill of pinkberry? get peeled instead. it's the first spot in manhattan to serve fruizo (soft serve fruit) so look for seasonal varieties like banana, mango and strawberry. inspired by a roadside farm stand and a summer house—checkered floors play against natural wood accents—there are two dozen mix-ins and toppings avail to add to your cold treat. but the true gem is the scratch n' sniff wallpaper. just resist the temptation to lick, please. opens mid august. 1371 third avenue. at 78th. 212.794.2200. www.peelednyc.com

hold the LT.

losing laurent tourondel hasn't stopped the BLT group from launching the BLT bar & grill in the downtown W hotel. to start? a free standing zinc-topped bar and outdoor patio make up the street level dining area, then move upstairs for private dining. wherever you sit, indulge in the full new american menu by christope bellanca (le cirque, l'orangerie). breakfast brings brioche french toast and breakfast burritos, while lunch moves into panini territory. for dinner, it's spiced rotisserie chicken with cabernet honey or hearty fare like NY strip or a bone-in ribeye. now open. W new york. 123 washington street. between albany and carlisle. 646.826.8666. www.bltbarandgrill.com


sports berry.

darryl strawberry gets his own grill this month. strawberry's sports grill has everything you would expect in a sports bar: giant flat screen TVs, framed autograph pics on the wall, a giant dark wood bar, and oversized leather booths. eytan sugarman of justin timberlake posse and southern hospitality fame partnered with strawberry in the joint, so expect the food to be as good as the sports package. think giant app platters, crawfish and cheddar hush puppies. proceeds from the strawberry burger (made with chili, bacon and cheese) go to his autism charity, so pig out without guilt. open early august. 41-15 235th street. between 130th and 131st. queens. 718.517.8787.
