Openings To Get Excited About

Restaurants Coming Out Of Winter Hiatus

  • Bernie’s in Greenpoint, a favorite neighborhood spot of ours that’s been closed since the beginning of the pandemic, reopens for takeout and delivery on Friday, March 12th. While they adjust to starting back up again, they’ll only be open Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 5pm-9:30pm. You can stop by their location right next to McCarren park or preorder online ahead of time here. Word to the wise, get mozzarella sticks and a takeout dirty martini for two.

  • Starting Wednesday, March 17th, Ruffian will be available to fulfill all of your East Village wine bar needs. They’ve built out a new outdoor space with a full bar seating arrangement and windows. You can book a reservation ahead of time for dinner or drinks and a snack here.

  • Superiority Burger is back for weekend service beginning Friday, March 12th. In addition to classics like their “Sloppy Dave” and burnt broccoli salad, they’ll be selling gelato and sorbet by the scoop, as well as wine and beer (which they weren’t offering this past summer and fall). You can stop by for walk-up orders or order ahead online here.

Events To Check Out

  • There’s an outdoor drag BBQ happening at Icon in Astoria on Saturday, March 13th. Performances start at 2pm, and all the funds benefit the Ali Forney Center, a non-profit that provides shelter and healthcare to LGBTQ youth experiencing homelessness in NYC.

  • In case you’re looking for weekend activities that extend beyond watching a reality show about the shenanigans of a crew on a private yacht, the chef of Veeray da Dhaba in the East Village is hosting chaat and chai cooking classes in the restaurant’s dining room every other weekend for $35 per person. You can make a reservation for an in-person, hour-long session by calling 212-777-1420.

Restaurant Closings

  • After just eight short-but-sweet months (and time on our Hit List), L’itos in Chinatown is closing down after service on Sunday, March 14th. They’re still hosting a collaborative takeout dinner with Sorella on March 21st. Otherwise, you can stop by on Sunday for one last sandwich hurrah and some fresh pizza.

Unfortunately, L’itos isn’t the only restaurant to have closed recently. Keep up with all of the city’s restaurant closures on our weekly-updated guide.
