On the Upper East Side, Italian eatery Carpe Diem is moving into a space on 78th Street between Third and Lexington avenues.

Food truck phenom DessertTruck is opening a permanent shop at 6 Clinton Street on the corner of East Houston Street on the Lower East Side. Also, a Mexican eatery, Hecho en Dumbo is opening at 354 Bowery on the corner of East 4th Street.

There’s lots of activity going on in Long Island City.

LIC market, a new eatery, is planning to move into 21-52 44th Drive Near 23rd Street.

A couple of New York City gastronomic mainstays may be heading out of the boroughs. The former owner of popular Red Hook wine shop LeNell’s Wine and Spirits Boutique, LeNell Smothers, has announced she’s moving to Mexico, where she plans to open a bed and breakfast.
