Seven Restaurants That Opened In NYC This Week
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: Canadian-style burgers invade Chelsea, Korean fried chicken arrives on Third Avenue, and Bushwick gets a saloon.
Big Smoke Burger, 70 Seventh Avenue, 917-475-1995
Hailing from Canada, Big Smoke Burger is hoping to wow New Yorkers with its Canadian-style burgers and poutine. Wondering what makes Canadian-style burgers different from good ol' American burgers? The difference is in the beef patty, which has a gamey, spicy taste. The space itself promotes communal eating with large wooden benches for seating.
ChicoJulio, 768 Amersterdam Avenue
Orale Mexican Kitchen came and went quickly, and taking its place is ChicoJulio. The casual restaurant focuses on seafood with a menu offering tacos, ceviches, aguachiles, and more. Tequila and mezcal based cocktails also grace the menu, which is no surprise as one of the owners is Sergio Mendoza, a tequila producer from Mexico.
Copper & Oak, 157 Allen Street
Whiskey lovers can now flock to Copper & Oak, a whiskey bar from Brandy Library vet Falvien Desoblin. The small space will be open nightly starting at 9p.m. with plans to open at 5p.m. after July 23.
Humboldt & Jackson, 434 Humboldt Street, Brooklyn, 718-349-3355
Named after the Brooklyn intersection where it is located, Humboldt & Jackson is a bar and event space from The Brooklyn Star's Bill Reed. The space shows its U.S. pride with a giant American flag adorning the wall, as well as a completely American wine and beer list. Bar bites include pickled veggies, chicken liver mousse, jerky, and more. Humboldt and Jackson is currently open every evening.
