2 Brand New Restaurants To Know About

  • The owner of Mottley Kitchen, a Bronx-based catering business and restaurant, just opened a new all-day cafe on 3rd Avenue in Mott Haven. Mottley Kitchenette serves coffee, pastries, as well as breakfast and lunch. They’re also bringing on a guest pastry chef who is making Thanksgiving pies. Find more information here, and check out these other Thanksgiving specials.

  • There’s a new, dreamy-looking taco spot in Bushwick called Nene’s Deli Taqueria. Nene’s specializes in birria, and the quesabirra tacos served between two homemade corn tortillas and smothered in cheese are not to be missed. Stop by their restaurant around the corner from Maria Hernandez park for takeout or call 347-789-5745 to ask about delivery.

2 NYC Restriction Changes

  • On Monday November 23rd, the governor announced some additional areas that have been added to the color-coded zone restriction maps. Parts of upper Manhattan will transition into a yellow zone (which limits table sizes for both indoor and outdoor dining), and Staten Island is now considered partly a yellow zone and partly an orange zone. As a reminder, orange zone restrictions include closing indoor dining completely. You can keep track of your zip code’s restrictions here.

  • Last week, the city shut down in-person learning. But it also became clear that the mayor and the governor are making restriction decisions based on different sets of data. Indoor dining remains at 25% capacity for now, although De Blasio said, “It’s not an issue of if the city will transition into an orange zone, it’s an issue of when...we’re talking a week or so before we’re in that orange zone status.” The orange zone prohibits indoor dining (as well as gyms), and limits outdoor table sizes to a four-person maximum. For those keeping score at home, indoor dining restrictions fall under the state’s jurisdiction.

2 New Pop-Ups

  • Osamil in K-town is hosting a new outdoor project serving Korean BBQ between 5pm and 10pm. The outdoor set-up comes complete with heat lamps above every table, and they’re accepting both reservations and walk-ins.

  • The Migrant Kitchen - who we’ve partnered with on Feed The Polls to feed people in line at polling locations across the country on election day - is serving dishes with Latin American and Middle Eastern influences out of a pop-up in Williamsburg. For every $12 you spend, The Migrant Kitchen will donate a healthy meal to a New Yorker in need. They’re open from noon to 10pm Tuesday through Sunday.
