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.

Caramello Getting Signage on Fifth

There are still a couple more exciting openings to look forward to this year on northern Fifth Avenue: we've got Uncle Barry's Bar opening sooner than you may think (stay tuned for the full scoop tomorrow), and slightly further south, Nicoletta Grippo's Caramello, a "Fine Italian Gelateria," is nearly complete in the space last occupied by Patio Lounge, between Berkeley and Lincoln.

Gold leaf is in the process of being delicately applied to the windows, and the whole facade has gone from green to black. When it opens, we can look forward to homemade gelato and baked goods, chocolate, small pizzas, panini, and coffee, beer and wine.

It's Official: Beauty Bar Taking Some Space from Ozzie's on Fifth

It was first rumored back in May, hinted at when Ozzie's Coffee, on Fifth and Garfield, closed "for three to four weeks" a couple weeks ago, but now it's officially confirmed: The 11th outpost (third in NYC) of the popular East Village bar/salon hybrid Beauty Bar will be opening soon in the northernmost end of Ozzie's, shown above.

I spoke with an Ozzie's barista yesterday, who told me that they'd sold off a chunk of the multi-storefront space, which currently takes up over half of the block, to the bar. Construction is underway to build a wall separating the two establishments, which will operate as two completely separate entities (a bar/coffee shop/salon hybrid would have simply been just too much, I suppose).

"The Painted Pot" Pottery Studio Opening in Taqueria Space

We know what's coming into the southern end of the old Taqueria space, on Seventh between Berkeley and Lincoln, and now the northern end has been rented as well, to The Painted Pot, a DIY pottery studio with outposts in Carroll Cardens and Bay Ridge. Signage went up over the weekend, and they plan on opening in January.
