Well, we never noticed this one... EVG regular peter radley pointed out recently that Jack's Luxury Oyster Bar at 101 Second Ave. near East Sixth Street had quietly closed. Some time ago, too — at the end of November. Hmm. Not a place that was ever on our radar. The Times liked it when the place opened in 2003 on East Fifth Street. By 2007, after they moved to Second Avenue, Eater had Deathwatched it.
We don't have too much info on the new Japanese restaurant opening at 130 St. Mark's Place ... next door to the dearly departed Whole Earth Bakery. The incoming restaurant will certainly fare better than the previous tenant — Tre Scalini, which we're almost positive closed after two weeks in July 2011.
Hey! Another new restaurant we don't know too much about! (Just being honest!) Feast is opening at the former New York Central Framing Annex at 102 Third Ave. near East 13th Street. (The Annex moved around the corner to East 12th Street.)
Per the Feast application (PDF) when the principals went before CB3 back in September for a liquor license:
It will operate as a full‐service Continental restaurant with bakery, with a kitchen open and serving food during all hours of operation, 2) its hours of operation will be 7:00 A.M. to 1:00 A.M. Mondays through Saturdays and 7:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. Sundays,
