The Times reports that the Chelsea outpost of Bronx favorite Zero Otto Nove is opening on Monday at 15 West 21st Street, and it isn’t the only restaurant opening a satellite. We’re told that the father-daughter team that opened the first U.S. location of Indian chain Saravanaa Bhavan (a.k.a. Saravanaas) in Curry Hill is opening a second shop on the Upper West Side. In addition to the usual south-Indian fare, there’ll be an Indian brunch (featuring thalis, lentil donuts, masala dosas, vegetable and potato bondas, and cream of wheat) as well as a list of a dozen organic wines (available by the glass or bottle) and a menu of cricket-themed, Indian-spiced cocktails. This location will also add an open kitchen, a more modern look, and 22 outdoor seats. Starting Friday, it’ll be open from 11:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. on weekdays and from 9:30 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
Saravanaa Bhavan, 413 Amsterdam Ave., nr. 79th St.; 212-721-7755
