Amazing Value Restaurant Equipment will open at 202 Bowery between Spring and Prince streets. The Lower East Side’s Delancey Street Washington Mutual Bank is now a Chase bank. Club promoter Jon B. is opening a restaurant at 539 West 21st Street between 11th and 12th avenues with chef Todd English.

In Brooklyn, the self-proclaimed “most luxurious day care center” in the borough is opening at 1018 Avenue Y near Coney Island Avenue in Sheepshead Bay. Slope’s Bistro Restaurant opened at the corner of 14th Street and Sixth Avenue in Park Slope. Luckydog opened at 303 Bedford Avenue between South 1st and 2nd streets in Williamsburg. Residents noticed a sign for a new restaurant called Bueno, in the old Trout restaurant location at 102 Smith Street between Atlantic Avenue and Pacific Street in Cobble Hill. Bushwick’s new putt-putt course, the Putting Lot, is now open at 12 Wyckoff Avenue between Troutman and Jefferson streets. WingBar opened in Carroll Gardens at 275 Smith Street between Degraw and Sackett streets.

Although early reports showed that Williamsburg’s new beer garden, Berry Park, was opening this week, new information shows that pending city inspections have delayed the spot’s premiere. Chelsea boutique Gerry’s at 112 Eighth Avenue at the corner of 16th Street closed. Variety Café at 48 West 48th Street between Fifth and Sixth avenues was shut down by the Department of Health, reportedly for the second time in three years.

Updates have emerged regarding the mass vacancies in Park Slope’s key business area, Seventh Avenue: Cohen’s Optical shop and Istanbul, a new Turkish restaurant, have opened on the block near 7th Street; where Knotting Slope, a knitting supply store, once was, there is now Big Apple Cleaners, between 4th and 5th streets; the former Laundromat will transform into a seafood restaurant on the corner of 8th Street, with plans to open in autumn.
