Open and Shut


    Carroll Gardens/Cobble Hill
    Lost City snaps this photograph of Ciro’s (above), the replacement for the Fall Cafe. As he says: “New layout inside, though it looks like they’ve kept some of the old chairs that gave the Fall Cafe its ratty charm. And there might be the possibility of garden seating in back.” A new Thai restaurant replaces an old Thai restaurant at 160 Smith Street. Sadie’s Kitchen closed on Degraw Street for spring remodeling. A bad sign? wonders one PMFA reader. And sadly, over on the Columbia Street Waterfront, Accardi Hardware, the oldest biz on the block, shuttered.

    Park Slope
    FIPS throws out a rumor that Starbucks is planned for the old Uncle Moe’s space on 7th Avenue. They also report that Talde is now serving brunch. Here’s Park Slope spots a new Indian restaurant coming to 396 5th Avenue and notes that Hungry Ghost Cafe opened its doors on Flatbush. An English Pub called Monro’s got signage at 481 5th Avenue.

    Brooklyn Pie Corps is looking to open a retail space sometime this year. A French Bistro is opening on Atlantic Ave. in Brooklyn Heights. A rundown building/deli on the corner of Parkside and Flatbush is being renovated in Prospect Lefferts Gardens. Grubstreet notes that Greenpoint fave Anella’s has started serving lunch. Last but not least, on Franklin Avenue in Crown Heights, a bike shop and a new restaurant will soon be the latest additions to the very busy block.
