Seen & Heard: New Dollar Pizza Joint

••• 99¢ Fresh Pizza has opened on Canal (between W. Broadway and Thompson).

••• Sweaty Betty put up “coming soon” signage for its Tribeca shop.

••• Serafina posted on Facebook that its Tribeca restaurant will open in July.

••• Thanks to W. for teaching me something new: You can watch any of the practice sessions at the Ken-Zen Institute on Thomas. You might see Kendo (“Japanese fencing derived from the ancient art of Samurai swordsmanship”) or Iaido (“Iaido is the practice of sword techniques which embody a series of cutting and thrusting movements in the drawing and resheathing of the blade.”)

••• City Winery is opening a Boston outpost in September.

••• The former Modell’s space at 55 Chambers (280 Broadway) is being converted to offices.
