Seen & Heard: Six Restaurant Updates

••• Signs on the door of The Greek yesterday said that the Food Network was shooting there. Meanwhile, at its forthcoming sister restaurant, Greca, I hadn’t noticed the word “fetabar” on the signage. According to Wiktionary, fetabar is (also) the first-person singular imperfect passive indicative of the Latin word feto, which means “bring forth, breed” in the passive usage.

••• The new Kesté pizzeria in Southbridge Towers was hosting a private party last night, and it looks done inside, so here’s hoping it open soon. Baby needs pizza.

••• The Nobletree café in the World Trade Center mall has opened. The interior is among the complex’s handsomest. Need to go back to try the coffee. UPDATE: Went for a macchiato. Finally, serious coffee in the WTC/Brookfield Place complex! The staffer said the café has been opening at 6 a.m. on weekdays, but they might switch to 7 a.m. And it opens at 8 a.m. on weekends. (Plus, the macchiato was $3.50, which is 70¢ cheaper than Kaffe 1668 South.)

••• North End Grill is now offering delivery via Caviar. And I’m happy for NEG’s former wine director, Mia Van de Water, who moved to Eleven Madison Park, but sad that we won’t be able to see her so often.

••• And Serafina is making progress, at least on the outside.

  1. Serafina apparently brought a lot of white brick for their facade with them from the Upper East Side.

  2. Regarding your comment, “According to Wiktionary, fetabar is (also) the first-person singular imperfect passive indicative of the Latin word feto, which means “bring forth, breed” in the passive usage.”

    I don’t know what your point is. Or what the relevance is. Or why you are assigning a Latin translation to a clearly Greek word.
