East Village eatery odds and ends: Opening the Ballarò sidewalk cafe; hiring at the Ninth Ward; looking at the Library's mirror in the bathroom

Ballarò Caffè Prosciutteria on Second Avenue between Fourth Street and Fifth Street now has their sidewalk cafe up and running...(the CB3/SLA approved it in April.)



...not sure about the couch, though...



26 Seats on Avenue B between 10th and 11th is on the CB3/SLA docket this month under the Alterations/Transfers/Upgrades ... to something called Paris Cuisine Inc.



A new fancy cocktail bar called Ninth Ward is opening on Second Avenue in the old Thai on Two place...from the people behind Shoolbred's across the way... Oh, and they're hiring now...



An espresso and wine bar is coming to the former Hala Pita space on Ninth Street near Avenue A...



Oh, I saw these T-shirts on sale on Mulberry...




Something new coming to the former Chabela's space at 40 Avenue B... to something called Little Printz Cafe LLC.



And East Village Feed reported: "The New York Film Academy Café will be continuously screening silent films on it’s new 65 inch television located on the outside of the Astor Place café." And you could see the TV in the window if there wasn't such a glare...and I wasn't, inexplicably, standing behind the tree...



And here's the smoking area...



The Bhakti Cafe is now open at 25 First Ave. ... (Well, it's not open for the day yet in this picture...)



Many places were closed on Memorial Day, but, oddly enough, Avenue A's brand-new Diablo Royale Este closed for the entire holiday weekend...



Hey, when did the Library get a mirror in the bathroom? (the one on the left.) Did I just not notice?



Hey, when did Katz's get that sandwiches sign? Did I just not notice? Too busy getting into shoving matches with those German tourists last time?

$14.95 for pastrami and $14.45 for corned beef? Ouch, I haven't been to Katz's in a while...waiting for my big powerball win.

Yeah, it is pricy... I go about twice a year.... I haven't been to Carnegie Deli in about 20 years... seemed as if that was always the most expensive....
