At 120 West 41st Street, next to 6th Avenue, in the Luma Hotel Times Square, Harlie Palmer's Aperibar is now operational. Pizza and Italian small plates are on the meal menu, and there are over 20 different prosecco options.
In the past year, Palmer has transformed the iconic Aureole restaurant in New York City into Charlie Palmer Steak and Aureole at Home, which, according to a spokesman, offers "boutique-style takeaway and catering as well as wine and cocktails."
It was his first restaurant, and it moved to Midtown in 2009 after opening in 1988. He now runs seven restaurants in New York in addition to the Conde Nast dining room.
According to the New York Post, the city reportedly rejected a $6 million deal from billionaire businessman Andrew Murstein to take over the famous boathouse and return the control keys to previous owner Dean Poll.
Ahead of time, Poll had declared that he would close the boathouse in October due to unaffordable operational expenses. The city's Office of Management and Budget apparently rejected the offer because they wanted more money for the in-demand location.
After a fire destroyed the structure over two years ago, popular Prospect Heights restaurant Morgan's Barbecue is getting ready to reopen.
A spokesman informs Eater that no specific date has been set yet for the reopening, although it seems to be aiming for some point in September.
According to a press release, a Cajun-influenced barbecue restaurant and live music venue called The Porch has opened in Harlem's Sugar Hill neighbourhood at 750A St. Nicholas Avenue, between West 147th and 148th Streets.
