Darn Donuts Opens on 4th Ave

Darn Donuts [8723 4th Ave] opened earlier yesterday to catch the late morning stragglers.  It's been some time since we last mentioned them but they are finally open.  The bright, fluorescent green storefront and the fresh scent of donuts and coffee lured curious shoppers all day out of their daily routines.  Hours are still fluctuating but regular store hours will be along the lines of Mon-Sat 7am-9pm, Sun 8a-7:30p. Their website is in the works but you can find them on Facebook.

Fontana Sushi on 3rd Ave Closes

Fontana Sushi Bay Ridge
Fontana Sushi [9608 3rd Ave], a fixture of Bay Ridge of nearly two decades closed within this last week. It's been around since long before the Met Fresh Supermarket became it's neighbor in 2013, and survived through at least one ownership change (that we know of).  We last spotted it being gutted out for renovation earlier on Monday. They were best known primarily for their All-You-Can-Eat (AYCE)-style sushi buffet option, over their a la carte menu, similar to the ones that have been cropping along the outskirts of Bay Ridge/Borough Park of recent years.

That now leaves the southern portion of Bay Ridge covered by one less choice for sushi in the hands of Suki Sushi, Fushimi, and Shobu Sushi.
