Open and Shut


    Yesterday Grub Street caught Grimaldi’s moving from its original location into One Front Street (pictured) just down the block. The SWO has been relinquished and the new joint should be open in about a week. Still under question: what’s with the illegal oven? And Dumbo NYC spots a new food truck in the neighborhood, specifically at Washington and Front Street. It’s called Real Good Truck and serves waffles/lunch.

    Coney Island
    The big food news this week was that Paul’s Daughters signed an eight year lease on the Coney Island boardwalk, Ruby’s Bar and Grill also signed on for eight more years, and Tom’s Diner is officially expanding from Prospect Heights to the Coney Boardwalk. There’s a holiday gift if we’ve ever heard one!

    Park Slope
    A few things happened in the Slope this past week: De Luxe Cafe opened at 410 7th Avenue, Noella Brew Bar opened further north at 72 7th Avenue and Pete’s Pizzaria on 5th is closed until January for renovations.

    Is a Chick-Fil-A coming to Brooklyn? Over in Fort Greene, the original A Bistro spot, recently up for rent, will soon be Lulu & Po. The chef comes from East Village’s Belcourt. In Williamsburg Grub Street checks out what to eat at newly opened Brooklyn Wok Shop. Up in Greenpoint, the bar Oak and Iron is open at 147 Franklin Street and New York Shitty takes a video tour of One Stop Beer Shop, opening later this month on Kingsland Ave. Finally, Palermo Pizza was seized by the tax man in Ditmas Park.
