Local chef Chris Cheung (once of Nobu) has opened a snack shop inspired by the Toishan teahouses that were once ubiquitous in Chinatown, where Cheung’s family settled nearly a century ago. Located in the Windsor Terrace neighborhood of Brooklyn, East Wind Snack Shop serves dishes of slow-cooked meats over rice, potstickers, dumplings, spring rolls, and bao.

Eli Zabar, the New York gourmet food icon and owner of Eli’s Manhattan, has announced that he is opening Eli’s Essentials in Carnegie Hill. Read all the details here.

Chef Maria Loi's new restaurant, Loi Estiatorio, will open in midtown Manhattan on Saturday, February 14. With an upscale take on the chef’s homeland cuisine, Loi Estiatorio is an ode to her Mediterranean roots. Signature dishes include grilled octopus, house made Loukaniko sausage, braised bone-in beef short ribs, and yiaourti me meli—Loi’s homemade Greek yogurt.

Michael Chernow, co-founder of the Meatball Shop, will open seafood-focused Seamore's in Nolita on Broome off of Mulberry. Bowery Boogie reports that much like his first venture, his newest will have a casual vibe yet serve thoughtfully sourced, less popular offerings from local fisheries in Montauk like fluke, flounder, and squid. 

After more than two decades in Tribeca, Nobu New York will reopen in a larger space in the Financial District. Find the full story here.
