It’s a little out of our coverage area, but nonetheless we learn from reader John Bernikow that a new restaurant called Hill and Bay looks like it is about to open at 581 Second Avenue (corner of 32nd and 2nd avenue). We suspect the name comes from its location on the border between Murray Hill and Kips Bay. From their under construction OpenTable page we see that the food will be casual American. More info as we get it.
