Harlem: El Morocco nightclub will be welcomed when it opens next month. “Since the closing of the Copacabana there is a shrinking number of places one could go to get their Salsa, Merengue, Bachata, and Reggaeton on!” [Uptown Flavor]
Midtown West: Hallo Berlin Express has opened at 744 Ninth Avenue, where it’ll serve “meatballs, sauerkraut, sausages and potatoes” off the griddle. [Midtown Lunch via Eater]
Soho: SubMercer has a new cocktail called the Tequila Mockingbird with maraschino liqueur and grapefruit juice, but we’d guess guests will spend more time analyzing the menu’s emblem of a lady on her back straddling a martini glass than they will thinking of the literary connotations.
