In the Financial District, Bar Seven Five will open Jan. 18. at The Andaz Wall Street hotel at 75 Wall Street, the same day as the hotel. Coffee shop RBC NYC has opened at 71 Worth Street near Church Street.

In Midtown, British fashion designer John Richmond will open a store at 3-7 West 56th Street — in the Crown Building, which has a Fifth Avenue address — and British footwear company Crockett & Jones will as well, according to a press release. Both stores are anticipated to open in spring 2010. Diplomat Liquors will open at 933 Second Avenue between 49th and 50th streets in Midtown East, according to a different press release.  

The Upper West Side is getting a little piece of the Upper East Side, with Upper East Side bakery Corrado opening a new bakery and cafe on the corner of Amsterdam Avenue and 76th Street in April. A 10th Manhattan location of healthy fast food joint Energy Kitchen may open in an unspecified location on the Upper West Side, according to a news release.  

In Brooklyn, Ajami Organic Hookah Lounge opened a few weeks ago on Seventh Avenue between 14th and 15th streets in the former Lily space in Park Slope.

Amid these openings, there have been some closings. In Soho, art gallery Deitch Projects will shutter at 18 Wooster Street near Grand Street. On the Upper East Side, upscale restaurant and club Bruno Jamais at 24 East 81st Street is rumored to be closed for good. Neighborhood mainstay Collegiate Food Shop will close in Harlem at the corner of 139th Street and Amsterdam Avenue after 85 years, due to a rent hike.
