Work on the two new bars/restaurants on Fifth, Iron Station, at 683 Fifth, and another at 700 Fifth, is moving along. At 700 Fifth, workers told me the food would be Jamaican/American. If this is so, it'll mean quite an influx of West Indian food around here. There's Roosters Caribbean Tapas nearby at 19th, the Breadfruit Tree on Fourth and 10th,and the regularly stationed food truck a block up at Fifth and 10th. A nice collection of flavor.
At 426A 7th (14th/15th), formerly home to Amira's, and before that Anthony's, it looks like a new restaurant, Windsor Roast House, will be arriving soon. A liquor license application is in the works.
