Week of October 22-28

Almondine Bakery
Pastry chef--owner Herv Poussot opens a second location of his beloved French bakery, featuring marble-topped tables, a small garden and a working fireplace. Just as at the Dumbo original, expect breads and pastries including croissants, baguettes and madeleines. Coffee and espresso brewed from La Colombe beans and rich hot cocoa made with Valrhona chocolate will also be available. 442 9th St at Seventh Ave, Park Slope, Brooklyn (718-797-5026)

Brothers Tom and Anthony Martignetti have converted their former Bar Martignetti into this 92-seat locavore gastropub, designed to evoke the Victorian and industrial periods with repurposed factory carts that double as tables. They will source ingredients from as close to the city as possible, and put them to use in British-inflected dishes like monkfish fritters with mushy peas and tartar sauce, and pork-and-stilton bangers with mashed potatoes and onion gravy. Beers, too, will be exclusively from New York State. 406 Broome St at Cleveland Pl (212-680-5600)

Country Panfried Chicken
Fried chicken has made quite the comeback, and now the guru of moist flesh and crackly skin, Charles Gabriel, is making his triumphant return to Harlem with this all-you-can-eat restaurant. In addition to the poultry, there will be barbecued ribs, mac and cheese, yams and other Southern favorites. 2841 Frederick Douglass Blvd (Eighth Ave) between 151st and 152nd Sts (212-281-1800)
