We’ve received lots of tips as of late about the new stuff popping up on Fulton Street in Fort Greene and Clinton Hill. Belli Osteria opened over the weekend at 860 Fulton, the old Autour du Monde spot. They serve Italian for lunch and dinner, and will open for weekday breakfast and weekend brunch by next week. The menu’s pretty extensive and includes pastas, salads and paninis. A tipster tells us that the owner is also in charge of Fragole Restaurant in Carroll Gardens. A restaurant called Three Letters which describes itself as “French-American country food” is opening at 930 Fulton Street in the old Joloff space. You can see some pictures of the restaurant renovation on their Tumblr page. And a new eating and drinking spot is opening up right next door to the pizza place also under construction, Ramagi, on Fulton between St. James and Cambridge Place. Finally, the old Michael Allen space has been quiet recently, but the new owners applied for a liquor license there this fall.
