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 classic 1940s diner hits the West Village, a successful LA restaurant finds a home in Brooklyn, and Hell's Kitchen gets a healthy dose of Belgian beer and waffles.
