Roberta’s Opens A Ghost Kitchen In Manhattan, & More NYC Restaurant News
Plus, live music outside, new restaurant openings, and heat lamps to know about in NYC.

Starting this week, Roberta’s has set up a second delivery and takeout space in Manhattan. In addition to making pizza out of their Urbanspace Vanderbilt stall in Midtown East, the Bushwick-based pizza place just moved into a commercial kitchen space on Stanton Street on the Lower East Side called Nimbus. The menu is limited to 12-inch pizzas and pepperoni rolls, and ordering is only available on Caviar and Doordash.

Minton’s Playhouse in Harlem built an outdoor stage so that they can continue to host jazz musicians outside. They also have a heated patio stageside where you can eat clams casino and drink martinis while you listen.

If you’re looking for live music downtown, Marshall Stack on the Lower East Side also hosts regular shows outside (although they don’t have any heat lamps).

The operating team behind Bronx Night Market announced that the weekly outdoor food festival series would be returning to Fordham Plaza on Saturdays starting April 3rd, 2021. This year, they’re promising more vegan options, more partnerships to support minority, immigrant, and LGBTQIA entrepreneurship, and a weekly feature of Bronx-owned businesses. You can stay updated with their vendor announcements here.

In heat lamp news, Sunday In Brooklyn in Williamsburg and Sushi Seki on the UES set up newly-installed heat lamps on their patios. Find more NYC restaurants with heat lamps here.

Unfortunately, more bars and restaurants continue to close because of the pandemic. You can keep track of the newest permanent and temporary closings on our guides.

There’s a new pizza place in Forest Hills called Austin Street Pizza, a Caribbean restaurant in Midtown, and an all-day spot in Ridgewood with idyllic focaccia. Read about all of these and more on our weekly Openings guide.

Ode To Babel in Prospect Heights recently started a coworking program where you can sign up for hourly slots to work in their space. Masks are required and it’s limited to eight people every time slot. You can book your time with a buddy, in case you want to remember what it feels like to have a friendly conversation in between sending work emails.
