from the Lord
Ed Szymanski and Patricia Howard, the owners of the seafood-focused Dame in Greenwich Village, are planning a new restaurant, expected to open in early fall, and, as Ms Howard said in an email, inspired by London establishments such as St John, Rochelle Canteen and Quo Vadis. “That style of simple, elegant, seasonal British cuisine that’s a far cry from the bangers-and-mash of previous generations,” she wrote. “Lord’s may be a tad less traditional than those references, considering the New York farmers’ market.”
Adda Indian canteen
Owned by Roni Mazumdar and Chintan Pandya of Unapologetic Foods since 2018, this Long Island City restaurant will relocate to the former Jeepney space in the East Village. A date has not yet been set. They plan to turn the Queens location into a commissary’s kitchen to support their restaurants, catering and delivery.

Aman New York
A new Aman hotel, the first in New York, will open on August 2. It begins on the 11th floor of the Crown Building, a 1921 gilded tower designed by Warren and Wetmore. That same day, Arva, for Italian dishes, and Nama, for Japanese omakase dinners, will open on the 14th floor to hotel guests and members of the chain’s private club. Later this year, the restaurants will welcome the general public.

Arthur and sons
Joe Isidori, a founder of Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beers who owned Arthur on Smith in Brooklyn, drawing on a family name, once again appeals to relatives as inspiration for his new Italian restaurant. His paternal grandfather was Arthur Isidori, a butcher in Harlem, and his father was Arthur Isidori Jr., a chef. It should open in early June.

Awaiting the publication of the New York Michelin Guide in the fall, inspectors have announced the restaurants they plan to add to the guide, without their associated ratings. The 21 restaurants are Antoya, Archie’s Table & Tap, Carne Mare, Casa Dani, Chick Chick, Chutney Masala, Ci Siamo, the Commerce Inn, Dagon, Dhamaka, Dumpling Lab, Falansai, Fradei, Le Pavillon, Mena, Mari, Noz 17 , Reservation by Amor y Amargo, Saga, Soda Club and Tacos Güey.
May 25 will be the last day for the Flatiron district branch of this restaurant with outlets in Bridgehampton, NY, and Palm Beach, Fla. Eric Lemonides, an owner, said the neighborhood “hadn’t come back” after Covid, citing a lack of lunchtime traffic and private events that kept the restaurant afloat, as well as high rents.
