When one restaurant's doors close another restaurant's doors open in fast-paced New York City, and every Friday, we'll fill you in on what opened up around town this week. This week: a gluten-free creperie opens in Cobble Hill, the owners of Buttermilk Channel open a French bistro in Brooklyn, and Sardinian food finds its place in the Upper West Side.
Arco Café, 886 Amsterdam Avenue, 212-665-0033
If you've ever wondered what Sardinian food tastes like, you now have your chance to find out when you drop into the Upper West Side's brand new Arco Café. Diners can expect dishes featuring bottarga (dried fish roe), Zuppa Gallurese (a cheesy casserole-like dish), and semifreddo with Sardinian amaretti cookies. All dishes are priced under $16, and the café is open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Cobble Creperie and Tea Spot, 194 Court Street, Brooklyn
Those on a gluten-free diet are in luck: Cobble Creperie and Tea Spot soft-opened this week in Cobble Hill offering a menu that is completely gluten-free. According to Chef Adam Ali, both the sweet and savory crepes are made using chickpea flour. The restaurant will officially open next week.
Custom Fuel Pizza, 2288 Frederick Douglass Boulevard, 646-524-5636
DC pizza spot Custom Fuel Pizza has opened on Harlem's restaurant row. The spot's signature square pizzas are cut into eight small pieces -- a pie is enough to feed one or serve as a snack for sharing between two. As the name suggests, Custom Fuel allows customers to customize their pizzas or choose from one of the menu options. Everything on the menu is under $8.
