The Plywood Report: Obika, La Pizzetta, Qdoba, and More

1) Midtown: Here's the latest in our daily Obika Watch. The place is still plywooded, but it's getting ever so slightly closer. The original reports put the latest projected opening at Sept. 22, but as with every other projection for the mozz bar, it came and went. [PLYWOOD]

2) Greenwich Village: Jeremiah's Vanishing notices that the Qdoba taking over the old Le Figaro Cafe space is getting closer to opening. The signage is up, plywood down. [PLYWOOD]

3) Cobble Hill: Lost City reports La Pizzetta is getting close: "The new restaurant in the former Soju space on Atlantic in Brooklyn—which was once the original space of La Bouillabaisse, looks set to open in its latest form: La Pizzetta, a brick oven pizzeria. A new red awning is in place, some decal doohickeys showing the boot profile of Italy are in the windows, and a sign says the place is looking for staff." [PLYWOOD]

4) Williamsburg: Our roving photog notices some progress on Bedford Ave: "It's at worth noting that the space next to Red Bowl on Bedford Ave btw/N5 & N6 is being actively worked on. The permits long ago said it would be a restaurant. So far there's no much to see inside. some wood construction." [PLYWOOD]
