BROOKLYN
Yossi's Glatt Sushi Opening on Fort Hamilton Pkwy 
A Chinese/Sushi place will be opening in Brooklyn soon on the corner of Ft. Hamilton Pkwy and 53rd St. Yossi's will be conveniently located very near Maimonides, an area that has been lacking any real options for hospital staff and visitors. h/t Gabriel Boxer, Michelle Forkowitz

The Wok 'N Grill, a Chinese restaurant located on Coney Island Ave between Ave P and Quentin Rd, opened a few months ago and became a quick friend and favorite among our Foodies with their VIP Grand Opening Party and All You Can Eat buffet nights. Unfortunately, there's been an argument over their lease, and the landlord has kicked them out of their current space. They are trying to fight it, but if anyone knows of any space for rent (not sell) in Brooklyn, please message Elan on Facebook, as the owner is eager to open again.

Bunnie Cakes Expands to Aventura 
Kosher, vegan and gluten-free? You bet. Bunnie Cakes started in 2009 by Mariana Cortez, a mother who could not find any goodies on the market that her son with dairy and gluten allergies could enjoy. She started creating and altering recipes herself and posting about them on her blog. Now, she's opening a second location of her allergy-free bakery, Bunnie Cakes, in the Aventura Mall on August 1st. Her first location is a storefront at 2322 NE Second Ave in Miami. Bunnie Cakes is under the supervision of Kosher Miami - Vaad HaKashrus of Miami Dade. h/t Miami Herald

CALIFORNIA
Amba Grill in Oakland to Close
Amba Grill, the only kosher restaurant in the East Bay, will likely be closing its doors this summer. Jonathan Wornick, a vegan, opened Amba as a vegetarian restaurant, but later added meat to the menu in an attempt to better fulfill the community's needs. Unfortunately, the community didn't seem to need it enough. h/t Jweekly
