    Wow, this looks great! What a nice-looking storefront, too.

    I love the small plate idea, but Daniel, if you’re reading: Please be vegetarian-friendly! May as well make it a place for as many people as possible.

    I look forward to seeing the menu and can’t wait for this to open. Welcome to the neighborhood!

    Salt and Fat – love the name. The food fascists will hate it.

    Looks cute! Can’t wait to try it.

    I’m hoping there will be a cute wine/martini bar?? Getting a bit sick of pubs… and I’d also like to try something different from Claret and Bliss!

    Well, Cafe Marlene has a decent-sized wine list, and they’ve extended their hours later since getting their liquor license. (I’m just speaking on size of the wine list, not quality. I’m a two-buck-chuck kinda gal.)

    Bloomberg will try to change the name to “Transfat”!

    I hope this new restaurant, other than having small plates, has reasonable prices as well, plus good service. We also need someone to go in there and be a food critic to check this place out. How about this web site going back in there and doing us a favor by sampling the food plus you can put this place on the map as well so the rest of our town will eat there as well. This will be a great addition to restaurant week which is usually in the spring. Sunnyside post thanks for this update.

    Wow, I cant believe Chef Daniel Yi is coming. I’ve tasted his food before and its pretty solid stuff.
    I hope it really does open in early March though.

    Tasted and devoured food prepared by Chef Daniel Yi at restaurants he previously cooked at. I’m a big fan of his style and taste. Definitely looking forward to checking out the new restaurant.
