A New Dim Sum Spot In The East Village & More NYC Restaurant News
All the NYC dining info you need for January 4th, 2022.

Between the latest openings and Covid-related disruptions, there’s almost too much to know about New York City’s dining scene right now. We’re here to keep you updated on expansions, closings, and plain old juicy stuff we notice when we’re out doing our jobs. That way you’ll always have something to drop on your friends (because that’s your role in the group text).

Tuesday, January 4th

  • Dim Sum Go Go put up a sign at a soon-to-be-open second location in the East Village on 1st Avenue between 13th and 14th Streets. Like the original East Broadway spot, Dim Sum Go Go’s new 15-seat restaurant will focus on quick service sans roving carts. They’ll also have beer and wine, according to their Community Board application.

  • Thai Diner now takes reservations up to one week in advance. Another new-ish development: you can order most of their cocktails by the pitcher.

  • One of our favorite restaurants in Prospect Heights, El Gran Castillo de Jagua, lost its lease. According to a Facebook post, the restaurant has closed after over 30 years of serving Dominican food that rivaled what you’ll find in Inwood and Washington Heights. There’s another great Dominican restaurant with almost the same name (called El Castillo de Jagua) on the Lower East Side that remains open— although the two are not owned by the same people.

  • Virginia’s on Avenue A recently closed. The owner of the restaurant, Reed Adelson, says they're hoping to open in a larger location in the future. Burger fans stay tuned.
