South Slope Seafood - Tidal Wave Coming Soon
- Alan Emdin Aug 29, 2001 11:25 AM
I recently posted that a restaurant (name unknown) was under construction at the corner of 11th St and 6th Ave. I've been told it would open the weekend of Sept 7, and would serve Italian food with an emphasis on Mediterranean fish preparations.
The "Off the Menu" column on page F-7 of today's Times says Minnow, a seafood restaurant "with Mediterrnaean touches" will open in October at 442 Ninth Street, which I figure to be midblock between 6th and 7th Aves.
Can anyone shed light on this co-incidence?

Off the top of my head, I can't think of any vacant retail space between 6th and 7th aves on 9th st. ...hmm, perhaps next to the candy store at the northeast corner of 6th by the bus stop?
Maybe something interesting is happening more towards 5th ave, perhaps across from the supermarket.
442 9th Street is the location of Cappucino Cafe--a restaurant with afew sidewalk tables and apparently garden seating--ie, it fits the Times description. I gather the space will be taken over as discussed in the Times. I've lived nearby over 2 years, but haven't eaten there. Has anyone on the board? Should I make a point of getting there before the changeover?
The people on 11th Street now say their place is more likely to open the weekend of Sept 14th than of the 7th.
