Welcome back

Chumley's A legendary speakeasy is making a comeback


A legendary speakeasy is making a comeback of sorts. Restaurateur Alessandro Borgognone (owner of Sushi Nakazawa) is reviving Chumley's, which ran from the 1920s until 2007 when the building it was in collapsed, in its previous West Village location. The new Chumley's won't be a carbon copy of the famous watering hole, but it will pay respects to its past through the decor, like book jackets on the walls (and, like the original, there won't be any signage). Unlike its forebear, the new Chumley's also aims to be a dining destination, with a menu from Victoria Blamey (Atera). Slated to open: Sept. 6; 86 Bedford St.,


The Japanese clubstaurant is making a go of it again. New owner Jon Bakhshi (Beautique) is opening Megu, which closed its TriBeCa and midtown locations two years ago, in the Dream Downtown's subterranean space. The massive, 300-seat restaurant will be helmed by former "Top Chef" contestant Frances Tariga-Weshnak. Slated to open: September; 355 W. 16th St.

Union Square Cafe

Danny Meyer's flagship restaurant closed after 30 years on 16th Street in December, but that's not the end of the culinary institution. The eatery is relocating a few blocks away from the original, where it will offer a new menu of American fare, private dining space and more. Slated to open: October; 101 E. 19th St.,

Rouge Tomate Chelsea

We're still holding our breath for the opening of this restaurant preview regular. The long-delayed reboot of the Michelin-starred, sustainable restaurant, which closed on the Upper East Side in 2014, is bringing its seasonal, plant-based fare by executive chef Andy Bennett to Chelsea. Slated to open: Mid-September; 126 W. 18th St.,

Slated to open: Early September; 28 Greenwich Ave.,

Kreuther Handcrafted Chocolate

Next door to his world-class, eponymous restaurant in the Grace Building, Gabriel Kreuther is opening a world-class chocolatier. The 15-seat shop will serve chocolates from pastry chef Marc Aumont, as well as European-inspired pastries, all made on site. Slated to open: Fall; 43 W. 42nd St.

Sweets by Chloe

In addition to expanding her fast-food vegan restaurant By Chloe in NYC and beyond, chef Chloe Coscarelli is opening a vegan bakery.

Two years after opening in Hell's Kitchen, this fast-casual restaurant, which calls itself the "union of culinary art and nutrition science," is expanding with a second location in NYC.

Quinoa bowls are the specialty of this fully-automated, take-out-only restaurant, which debuted in San Francisco last year and is opening its first NYC spot.

This restaurant takes the mason jar salad trend to the next level. Dubbed an "epicurean cantine," Ancolie will serve healthy, wholesome, ready-to-go meals and snacks in custom-made, reusable glass jars.
