Panda Restaurant is opening on 46th Street between Fifth and Sixth avenues. In Brooklyn, the Park Slope flea market will debut in the parking lot behind the Al-Noor school on 20th Street next month, with more than 60 vendors every Saturday and Sunday. A new frozen yogurt store, /eks/, has come to 639 Vanderbilt Avenue in Prospect Heights. Garry’s Wine and Liquor at 234 Flatbush Avenue in Park Slope is moving up the block to 80 Saint Marks Avenue. Marco Polo on the corner of Court and Union streets will soon add a wine bar. Brooklyn’s Vox Pop, at 1022 Cortelyou Road, which was in danger of closing after falling behind on its rent, will stay open, thanks to donations from local residents. Amid these openings, Urban Lobster, the steamed lobster takeout shop, will be closing its East Village location tonight and auctioning off the restaurant’s contents tomorrow. Lazy Catfish in Williamsburg has been closed by the Department of Health. TRD
