Totale Pizza isn’t the only thing keeping the Halali brothers busy. We’re told that today they’re opening another location of 2 Bros. at 31 West 46th Street, between Fifth and Sixth Avenues. In a month and a half, the chain will venture into Brooklyn when it opens at 395 Flatbush Extension, across from Junior’s. And 2 Bros. isn’t the only Manhattan success story crossing a bridge.

A Craigslist ad indicates that 5 Napkin Burger, which opened an Upper West Side location earlier this year, is staffing up for another location at 35th Avenue and 36th Street in Astoria, near the Museum of the Moving Image, the UA Kaufman Astoria theater, and the Studio Square beer garden.
