The Restaurants of Myrtle

November 7, 2007

New blog Clinton Hill Foodie turned us on to this rundown of the Myrtle Avenue restaurants on Gridskipper.  CHF vouches for Maggie Brown’s and Il Torchio, and I agree, although I’d add Castro’s to my list of favorites.

Gridskipper overlooked Zaytoons, which I also love, and Abistro, which is just a few steps off of Myrtle, and also wonderful.  They also forgot Thai 101, and probably some others that I’m failing to think of.

Update on Habana Outpost

October 26, 2007

I spoke by email to someone from Habana Outpost about the rumor that they’ll remain open this winter — sadly, they won’t.  But he did say that they are considering it for next year. 

I for one, would happily continue to frequent the restaurant in the winter.  Cravings for that veggie burrito don’t disappear with the warm weather!

GOOD, a great magazine that has just been brought to my attention, profiles Habana Outpost in its latest issue.  The article primarily covers the creative ways in which the restaurant/bar/market has embraced sustainable design.  But it also informs us that Habana has a new basement lounge and will now remain open year round!

Nigerian Restaurant Coming Soon

October 7, 2007


Looks like the empty corner space at Lafayette and Cumberland is soon to be occupied by a restaurant called EN in Africa — “Nigerian Cuisine and Bar.”  This according to the sign now hanging outside.  This ought to add yet more eclecticism to the neighborhood dining scene — and it’s good to see something finally coming into the space.
