A couple of months after winning a concession stand at Brooklyn Bridge Park (Ditch Plains Drop-In was to launch in July, but its opening date is still in the air), Marc Murphy has announced that he’s bringing a second brick-and-mortar location of Ditch Plains to 100 West 82nd Street. When the Upper West Side location opens in the former Rain and Barbao space this fall, it’ll have a similar menu and look, and the loved/hated Ditch Dog will certainly be served. The restaurant will be open from 11 a.m. till 2 a.m., and the Pier One kiosk (whenever it launches) will be open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
