“My dream project for 25 years,” is how Missy Robbins described the latest addition to Lilia and Misi, the Brooklyn places she owns with Sean Feeney. “I always intended to open a store,” she added, referring to an outlet for her fresh pastas, jarred vegetables and other products. She introduced the packaged goods in 2019, but, because the pandemic, sold them only online in the restaurants. Though the new spot — a compact storefront and kitchen with retail shelves up front, seating for 22 and a shady garden in back — has a menu and accepts limited reservations to allow for walk-ins, she considers it to be primarily a shop. “I want people to come and buy pasta and try it at home,” she said. Need help? She has two cookbooks, also on sale. As for dining in, a recent menu featured assorted vegetables like marinated eggplant, and grilled artichokes with Provolone and hot peppers on a sesame roll; and also prosciutto di Parma with fontina gougères, and mozzarella in carrozza. The pasta dish of the day was spaghetti with bottarga, lemon and garlic bread crumbs. The menu changes frequently.

A marathon waiting period for the liquor license has reached the finish line, and Jamie Mulholland — the founder of Mulholland Leisure, an owner of the Surf Lodge in Montauk, N.Y. — is ready to open his clubby new SoHo spot. Mr. Mulholland took the name, which is Jamaican patois for catching the groove, from a Peter Toth song; there are references to reggae in the décor. It comprises a plush downstairs lounge and a spacious main floor dining room done with rustic elegance. The menu, by the culinary director Sean Olnowich, is seasonal, featuring local ingredients.
