The Bowery is boiling!

Soon, another new kitchen will be turning up the heat on the Bowery – which is turning into a hip restaurant row. We recently talked about Faustina, chef Scott Conant’s second Manhattan outpost adjacent to the Cooper Square Hotel’s lobby. The Italian fare seems to be delighting customers, as the restaurant is always packed and lively (huge difference from previous Table 8).

Now the buzz has been around – for a while – about Pulino’s Pizzeria and Grill: Keith McNally’s (pictured) latest venture. March 15th is the official opening date, for lunch and breakfast only. It has been open for friends and family tasting evenings. We can’t wait! As big fans of the NYC bistro emperor, we look forward to Nate Appleman’s cookery (I heard there will be some serious meat butchering going on) and pizzas prepared on their two large wood burning fire ovens. Call, they started taking reservations today! 212-226-1966

And as if you think that's not enough evidence to call the Bowery the newest hip restaurant row (Gemma, DBGB, Faustina, Pulino's), add some Mexican spice to it with the recent opening of Hecho en Dumbo. Chef Danny Mena and partner Ethan Smith garnered a reputation as one of New York's premier destinations for authentic Mexican cuisine. They relocated from their original Brooklyn location in order to expand and better accommodate their growing clientele. The space is rustic with brick walls, wooden ceiling, lot's of concrete and iron fixtures. South of the border just came closer. Head to Hecho en Dumbo for a real made in Mexico food experience. Like I said: the Bowery esta super caliente.
