East Side fish fanatics are in for a treat.
Long Island seafood hotspot Buoy One, known for affordable clambakes from Riverhead to its East Hampton, Westhampton and Mattituck locations, plans to open at 930 Third Ave. at 56th Street early next month.
“We are bringing fresh, top-quality seafood at affordable prices. There is nothing like it on the market at this price point,” says Robert Pollifrone, who co-founded the eatery with his brother-in-law, Chef David Girard, and their partner, Lloyd Sugarman.
The clambakes will be priced around $28.95 instead of “$60 or $70,” Pollifrone said.
The 2,000-square-foot space will have 65 seats.
The restaurant will also feature a market, “so you can buy top-quality fish to cook at home, too,” Sugarman said, adding that the eatery is also known for its fresh fish dishes, clam chowders and steamers.
A new cocktail bar with fancy bar bites is opening soon on the Upper West Side, Sidedish has learned.
Nobody Told Me plans an early January opening at 951 Amsterdam Ave. between West 106th Street and West 107th Street from Nick Pfannerstill, the former chef de cuisine at Dovetail, Chef John Fraser’s now defunct Upper West Side, Michelin-starred classic.
Pfannerstill is partnering on the project with Alberto Miranda, who got his start at Rouge Tomate and the seamstress, and is focused on creating a culinary- driven bar program.
“Think bar bites that would not be out of place at a fine dining establishment,” our source says.
Black Seed Bagels, the Montreal-style sweet bagel shop, is opening its first Brooklyn outpost at 125 Court St. in January, helmed by executive chef Dianna Daoheung, a James Beard ‘outstanding baker’ 2018 finalist.

Sweetgreen, the fast salad chain, will also open in the space, as we previously reported, at 125 Court: an 11-story rental building and home of the Brooklyn Dodge YMCA. The space includes a courtyard designed by James Corner Field Operations, of the High Line and Domino Park design.
Black Seed first opened in 2014 in Nolita. This will be its fifth location.
