We have exciting news! According to the West Side Rag, Lincoln Square's food scene is getting two great new additions. El Fish Shack is a new restaurant coming to 153 Amsterdam Avenue between West 66th and 67th Street. El Fish Shack, which has another location in Astoria, plans to offer “a contemporary American spin on the traditional New England fish and seafood eatery. It’s expected to open in March or April. And, Noi Due Café has moved up Columbus Avenue from its space at 143 West 69th Street, but, after a brief closure, they will open a new concept on West 69th next to Noi Due Carne, which is still open. We are looking forward to these new restaurants!
