Restaurant Openings and Updates (9/8/15)

As you can imagine they hit a little snag, something to do with the fire alarm system. And because we don't want to keep predicting an opening date, let's just say after Succos. But click on the header link above or the image to the right to see exclusive pictures that were sent to us. They'll be located at 160 Broadway.
We reported on this earlier this summer, but now, after an ongoing three year court battle, The Prime Grill has finally moved into the Sony Building, in place of Prime Hospitality Group's other restaurant, Butterfish. Executive Chef David Kolotkin has joined forces with Butterfish's sushi chef, Chef Hiro Hitochi, to build an innovative and fresh menu that we can't wait to see! 
This brand new coffee shop in Boro Park is looking to switch things up with their specialty coffee selection and super chill vibes. Think top quality espressos, blended iced lattes and amazing, hand-picked coffee beans. 1982 Coffee will be opening to the public on Labor Day, September 7th, but we got a sneak peek this week, click here to see. 1982 is located at 5405 13th Avenue in Borough Park.
Baguette Express to Open on Avenue J      Baguette Express
Baguette Express, a new deli/Israeli grill will open this week on Ave J and East 14th. Just a block away from the Q train and right near several yeshivas, Baguette Express is sure to be a great back-to-school treat. They'll be serving Wraps, Falafel, Salads and Burgers. Check out pictures and their menu here

From the owner of Kaffe Kafe, there is a new kosher, Cholov Yisroel, Espresso Sandwich Bar called "Lait Cafe" which just opened this past week. This is great news for those in the area for some fun shopping or dreaded jury duty as there are not many casual Kosher dining options in the area. Lait Cafe is offering ready made and to-order foods as well as daily specials and drinks. They will have platters for catering available as well. Located in the former location of The Shuk at 129 Livingston Street in Downtown Brooklyn. Click here to see more photos and menus.
The Prime Hospitality Group's newest Brooklyn location is now open for business. After months of wistfully looking at their storefront of Ave J and East 12th, the doors are now actually open. Prime Pizza is an artisan pizza restaurant, where you can find delicious creations such as fried pizza and zeppoles. Reviews have already started pouring in for Prime Pizza, check them out here. The Prime Burger restaurant located next door should be open after Succos.
The artisan pizza place, famous for it's extra thin crusts and innovative mini pies, is open again after some remodeling. The goal of the renovation was for the restaurant to feel more comfortable: they removed the bar seating to make use of the natural light, changed the wood on the walls and tables to a lighter color, added new lighting. A service shelf will be added so customers can reach forks, cups, napkins and other items easily, and the bathroom has been completely redone. The result is a comfortable but chic, all new Posh Tomato. 
There's a new cafe and pizzeria in Borough Park, formerly Benny's Pizza, now Table 40. They are under new management and have revamped the menu. Serving up unique dishes like Poutine with mozzarella cheese and gravy, home-made Veggie burgers and fresh pastries like their mini muffins. They are offering back to school specials and platters for those of us who have yet to unpack from the summer vacation! Table 40 is located at 4001 13th Avenue in Brooklyn.   
Blaze Tex-Mex Opening Soon in Former Fuego LocationBlaze Tex Mex
The owner of Fuego has big plans for the Miami kosher dining scene! His new restaurant called Blaze Tex-Mex BBQ will be opening in the former Fuego location. Opening date is set for October 13th. And because we like to tease our readers, let's just say there's more action coming soon to the Waterways. Blaze Tex-Mex BBQ is located at 2520 NE 186th Street in North Miami Beach.
Carlos & Gabby's is Coming to MiamiCarlos and Gabby's
Great Kosher Restaurants reported back in 2013 that Carlos & Gabby's would be opening a location in Miami. Seems that opening a restaurant in Miami is not the easiest thing to do. But just last week, they announced through their newInstagram account that they will finally be opening their Miami Beach location next month. Keep it tuned on our Facebook Foodies Page for updates! 
A new catering service called Zayde's Kosher Kitchen will be opening this fall in Rosen Plaza Hotel on International Drive in Orlando. Under the supervision of the RCF and OU, Zayde's Kosher Kitchen will have three separate kitchens: Glatt kosher meat, Chalav Yisrael dairy and pareve. They will be available for catering all types of events, from bar and bat mitzvahs, to weddings, to Pesach and all other chagim. A restaurant should be following and we will send you all the details as we get them.
Conversos Y Tacos is not your traditional food truck. Started by Peter Svarzbein with a grant from the City of El Paso Museum and Cultural Affairs Department,Conversos Y Tacos is an art installation that also happens to serve kosher tacos. In an attempt to connect and educate people about Judaism and their Jewish roots, Svarzbein brings his art piece/food truck combo to big community events, special events, and to food truck rallies. h/t Munchies-Vice
Ayelet's, a Mediterranean-with-a-twist restaurant, just opened on Brent Street in Hendon, London. It's a waiter-service restaurant, but also a take-out place that's perfect for Shabbos meals, and a catering service.

A new kosher store called Goldenberg's has opened in Warsaw, making it only the second kosher store in Poland's capital city. Owner Piotr Goldenberg previously ran his business online, but recently decided to open a store front that will offer a broad choice of kosher meats, bread, alcohol and even "various utensils indispensible in the traditional Jewish home." It's not only a grocery, but a place with atmosphere where people will be able to pop in and have a coffee or sandwich, and listen to music. Click here for the full thread. h/t Stetzl.org
