6 Clinton St between E Houston and Stanton Sts (no phone yet)
Most Vietnamese restaurants don't boast Greenmarket-sourced goods, but that's exactly the kind of seasonal cooking you'll find at Michael "Bao" Huynh's 38-seat, prix-fixe-only eatery with a $29 set menu that changes daily.

2 Harrison St at Hudson St (212-966-6960)
In anticipation of their restaurant's 30th anniversary, David and Karen Waltuck have closed the space temporarily for renovations.

Seafood restaurant, name TBD
308--310 Bleecker St between Seventh Ave South and Grove St (no phone yet)

275 Van Brunt St between Pioneer St and Visitation Pl, Red Hook, Brooklyn (no phone yet)

166 South 4th St at Driggs Ave, Williamsburg, Brooklyn (no phone yet)
Comfort-food lovers fell hard for Carolyn Bane, Sarah Buck and Erika Geldzahler's fried chicken, pulled pork and freshly baked pies, all dished out from a makeshift Williamsburg location. They're hoping the new spot, a "bigger, better, more miraculous hole in the wall," will open before winter hits.

Rabbit and the Moon
47 W 8th St between Fifth and Sixth Aves (no phone yet)
The owners of STK and Pink Elephant unveil a bi-level English gastropub, inspired by London pioneer the Eagle.

'wichcraft at The Atrium at Lincoln Center

Xie Xie
32 St. Marks Pl between Second and Third Aves (no phone yet)
Buddakan-trained Angelo Sosa has his eyes on the franchise with this Asian sandwich joint, which already has one outpost in midtown. The five-item 'wich menu stays the same, and the ubiquitous banh m is still (mercifully) absent.
