Looking at Eater’s recaps from last night’s Community Board meeting, we find out that Upper West Side brunch standby Sarabeth’s will open a location in the Bazzini space at 339 Greenwich Street. The Terroir outpost we first told you about also got Community Board 1’s nod. Meanwhile, over in Chelsea, Community Board 4’s licensing committee failed to back Artichoke’s occupation of the Red Rocks West space, though new partner Noah Tepperberg of Avenue and Marquee assured it would be a “chic modern Italian restaurant and Pizzeria offering lunch and brunch — not a two or three star establishment, but nice.” We’ll see if he ends up swaying the full Board, like he did with Avenue. Plans for the restaurant call for a separate takeout joint where food such as cauliflower and artichoke fritters, sausage and meatball heroes, and a pasta of the day will be prepared for the restaurant in addition to (burnt anchovy!) pizza.
