A block away, Le Petit Rooster, a classic bistro and wine bar with rotisserie items, from the owners of several restaurants in Queens and on Long Island, is replacing the fancy food shop Gastronomie 491. Elea, a two-floor Greek restaurant, comes from the team behind the Roslyn, N.Y., restaurant, Kyma, which recently opened a version in the Flatiron district.
Jeremy Wladis, a veteran restaurateur in the area, is opening the Flying Fisherman with the chef Juan Carlos Landazuri. There will also be a takeout adjunct, Fish on the Fly, for lobster rolls and the like. Another busy Upper West Sider, Jacob Hadjigeorgis of Jacob’s Pickles, Maison Pickle and Lucky Pickle Dumpling Co., is adding Tiki Chick with drinks, small plates and a fried chicken sandwich.
For the Lincoln Center crowds, the sushi master Shinichi Inoue, from the Michelin-starred Harlem restaurant Sushi Inoue, will oversee the fish at a grand two-floor offshoot, Sushi Inoue Lincoln Center, in the former Picholine space.
And suppose you don’t want dinner, just something sweet? A new Billy’s Bakery is coming.
