Business A Taste Of Fifth Video Still with Du Jour

The restaurants and bars of 5th Avenue brought their A game to A Taste of Fifth  from the Park Slope Fifth Avenue BID on Wednesday night, and as a sold out crowd descended on The Grand Prospect Hall, it quickly became apparent that organizers knocked this year’s event out of the park. We spent the evening catching up
Business Now Closed: Atomic Wings

When one door closes, another door opens. Pitas and Sticks, a “fast casual Greek grill” is on its way to the former Atomic Wings space at 321 9th Street (between 5th and 6th Avenues). Owner John Stamos (no, not that one) tells us that, in addition to a selection of draught beers, the new restaurant will feature “a fresh
Business Now Open: Bella Gioia, 209 4th Avenue

“When people think of Italian food, they think of spaghetti and meatballs or chicken parmigiana,” says Nico Daniele, chef and owner of Bella Gioia, which just opened at 209 4th Avenue near the corner of Union Street. “I really want to remove that stigma and show that Italy, specifically Sicily, has a lot more to
Business Closed and Under Construction: Anthony's on 4th

Anthony’s on 4th, the family-run pizzeria that was listed for rent about a year ago, is closed, with Department of Building signs up in the windows about a new renovation in the space at 400 4th Avenue, on the corner of 6th Street. We tried calling Anthony’s, which opened back, to see if it’s

E Lingerie by Enelra, the boutique lingerie shop located at 140 5th Avenue between Douglass and Baltic Streets, is now officially closed after first announcing they were going out of business back in January.

Business Coming Soon: Om Gift Shop, 152 5th Ave

The storefront at 152 5th Avenue, which was most recently home to A. Cheng before the boutique moved to its new space at 622 Bergen Street, didn’t stay empty for too long. The windows have been papered over, and signs recently went up announcing that Om Gift Shop will be opening soon. Unfortunately, that’s all

Business Shake Shack Construction on Flatbush Ave

We’re getting closer and closer to Shake Shack.

Though there appears

Business 168 Asuka Sushi, 847 B Union Street

A sushi spot by any other name will still taste as sweet, right? Amber Sushi, which opened in May of last year at 847B Union Street, just off 7th Avenue, has been renamed 168 Asuka Sushi. It’s apparently only the name that’s different, though. Staff at the small, otherwise unchanged space, say that the owners remain
Business Blok Hill

The storefront at 103 7th Avenue, between Union and President Streets, didn’t stay empty for too long. After Rivet closed its location there earlier this month, the store’s former buyer decided to build her own shop in the space, and Blok Hill is now open. Though it may look somewhat similar to the previous store,
