PIG GUY NYC [8413 3rd Avenue] will soon have a standalone store to call their own.  The best part is it's coming to Bay Ridge, first!

This comes quickly on the heels of founder, Thomas Perone's most recent project, opening up Thomas' Greek Kitchen, a Greek fast-casual concept in the Barclay Center (March 2nd).  Attention now turns toward the opening of their first true standalone brick and mortar here along 3rd Ave's Restaurant Row.

Adana Mayla Turkish Restaurant Opens on 5th Ave

Adana Mayla 
Adana Mayla [7701 5th Ave] opened earlier in March offering Turkish cuisine to all.  Although the menu speaks to the burgeoning Middle-Eastern population along the span of 5th Ave, there's something for everyone. The menu covers the whole spectrum of Turkish as you can imagine, including salads, mixed grill, shawarmas, and kebabs. They are on Facebook, Yelp, and have a website.
