Manhattan eatery Good Thanks is set to open imminently on Graham Avenue.
The location has been home to several restaurants including Sel De Mer from 2009 to 2014 and Concord Hill from 2014 until just a few months ago.
Renovations on the space began this fall. The dining room has been reconsidered in layout and a vestibule created to protect diners from the opening and closing of the front door.
The bar space appears to have been reconfigured and new arches added in the back, creating a more open feel to the space. The interior renovation has been wrapping up over the last week and now appears to be preparing to open.
A post on Instagram promises the new location will open in December.
The menu includes a mix of sandwiches, bowls and larger plates. It draws inspiration from Middle Eastern cuisine, and mixes in influences form Korea, California, and Central America. The current location also offers alcohol and espresso drinks.
Signage has been completed as well, although there has been very little work on the previous street-side dining space.
Earlier this year, the dining shed — a platform with open walls and a roof — was struck by a car destroying the original platform. The replacement was hastily reconstructed for the final months of Concord Hill’s dining service, but the space then began accumulating rubbish and construction debris during the renovation.
The location had been home to Concord Hill, a new American bistro concept that closed abruptly this summer.
