Konditori Branching Out to Seventh Avenue

It's been a little less than a year since a small, nameless Swedish-style cafe opened on Fifth Avenue between Degraw and Sackett. Its owners, Stockholm-born Per Englander and business partner Ronny Kaj, wanted to introduce the Slope to Swedish-style coffee, which is medium-bodied, with a light finish, as well as custom-made baked goods and Swedish snacks like kanelbulle (cinnamon buns) and marzipans.

Within a couple months they'd settled on a name and also opened a second outpost, on the Lower East Side. Konditori simply translates to "coffee shop" in Swedish, and their brand is apparently one that's really catching on. Opening soon will be the Slope's second Konditori, coming to the space last occupied by 4 and a Tail Pet Shop, on Seventh Avenue between Fourth and Fifth Streets.

Second Glow Accessories Gets Signage on Fifth

Glow Accessoaies opened just last month on Seventh Avenue between Berkeley and Lincoln, selling quality, inexpensive jewelry, scarves, and the like, and now signage has been installed a couple blocks downhill, in the second outpost, coming to 219 Fifth Avenue, between President and Union.

According to owner Jisoo Sun, this Glow will cater to mostly a younger audience, and it will be a "more modern, funkier and smaller (300sq) version of Glow."

A First Look at Die Koelner Bierhalle, Coming to 84 St. Marks Place

It was a couple weeks ago that we first got word that a German beer hall would be opening in a former lumber shop on St. Marks Place near the corner of Fourth Avenue, and now the hall, which will be run by a manager at the popular Fort Greene watering hole Der Schwartze Koelner, is officially under construction, judging by photos posted to their Facebook page.

Talde Restaurant Gets Some Signage

One of the more highly-anticipated restaurants of the year, Top Chef alum Dale Talde's self-named restaurant (partnered with the owners of Thistle Hill Tavern) is getting closer to opening, on Seventh Avenue and 11th Street. The exterior recently received its final touch, the installation of some simple, classy signage above the doorway.

For some more details as well as a sample menu, click here.

And hey, there's the chef himself at left!

First Look: Uncle Barry's Bar, Opening Thursday

Uncle Barry's has been under construction on Fifth Avenue between St. Marks and Bergen for a few months now, and owners Josh Ellis and Jake Treback are planning on opening the doors (and the taps) to the neighborhood this Thursday at 7 PM. Let's take a look at what we can expect.

The first impression is that it's a no-frills space, and that's exactly what the owners, who are first cousins, want. "You don't need to convince people to get drunk in a dimly lit room," said Ellis, who will be behind the bar Monday and Wednesday nights and Friday during the day (Treback will bartend Monday, Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday nights). There's a seating area up front, a classic wooden bar that seats 20, a small back room that's home to a Mortal Kombat II arcade game (good choice), and a small backyard down below.
