  1. The Zipper Factory, a tavern-style spot, opened earlier this year, on 37th, b/t 8th & 9th, adjacent to the Zipper Theater. I've not been but have read some promising reports.

    Osteria Gelsi is another place in that vicinity that I think may be new -- certainly new to me as I've yet to try it. I recall some Hounds recommending it. I passed by the other day, and it looked very nice.

      No mention of Trattoria Trecolori, RGR? They're gonna take you off their payroll! : )

      Of course, it's not entirely new, but it was closed for a decent clip while they relocated to their current location on W. 47th.

        LOL! Actually, it did occur to me to suggest Trecolori for the very fact that they have moved. But the menu is still the same, and I figured it might be one of the "old standbys" juliya has tired of going to. Not that I feel that way, of course! :-)
