Grand Openings::

Now Open: Blue Marble in Boerum Hill420 Atlantic Avenue, between Bond and Nevins Streets, 718-858-1100"When Cobble Hillbilly Alexis Miesen couldn’t find a decent local scoop, she paired with friend Jennifer Dundas to open this ice-cream parlor. Look for eco-friendly details like biodegradable cups and utensils, with socially conscious flavors—like mint fair-trade-chocolate chip—to match." [Time Out New York]

Now Open: Viva in Red Hook116A Sullivan St., near Van Brunt St."It's at the same location as the much missed Huipil. It bills itself as Tex Mex food but seemed a lot more authentic than your self-styled Tex Mex joint. Anyway, a similar vibe as Huipil, laid back but friendly service. We had flautas de pollo and enchiladas de suiza. Both great. Well portioned, fresh, homey. Best of all, our menus advertised a free margarita with any entree, so we each had an unexpected and very delicious margarita for lunch today." [Chowhound]
