Fatty Crab  

American Masala
60 Pearl St.; November
The Players
Dévi co-chefs Suvir Saran and Hemant Mathur spice up Wall Street.
The Plan
Two floors, two cheap-eats concepts: traditional curries (on chapati or in biryani) downstairs; mouthwatering variations on a burger theme upstairs.

Fatty Crab
643 Hudson St.; 212-352-3590; September
The Players
Zak Pelaccio and a 5 Ninth partner spin off a 32-seat spot on the edge of the meatpacking district.
The Plan
Named for a joint outside Kuala Lumpur, Fatty Crab lets Pelaccio indulge his Malaysian fixation with Jalan Alor rotisserie chicken wings and chili crabs served with white bread.

Frankies 17 Clinton Street Spuntino
17 Clinton St.; November
The Players
Brooklyn’s favorite Frankies (Falcinelli and Castronovo) take their snacky “spuntino” concept on the road.
The Plan
Terrific sandwiches on Sullivan Street Bakery bread; roasted vegetables and seasonal salads; lusty braciole—all at original Brooklyn Frankies prices to fill a Clinton Street niche.

Anthony’s
426A Seventh Ave., Park Slope, Brooklyn; October
The Players
The Nick’s Pizza crew and a bona fide Neapolitan pizzaiolo plant a thin-crust flag in the South Slope.
The Plan
Pizza, baked pastas, and fish cooked in a custom-built gas-fired brick oven, plus Nick’s justifiably renowned eggplant parm, manicotti, and cannoli.
