New Chain Va Presto Pasta Bar to take over Satya space

New signage at the old Satya space proclaims Va Presto -Something-  is moving in. Anyone want to buy a vowel? “Go Quickly _____” in Italian sounds like an ominous name for a space vacated so quickly by the previous tenant. A permit posted on their 8th Avenue door gives some clues. Apparently we’re getting a pasta bar with alcohol (yay!) being opened by the Scottos, a family with a group of expensive (boo!) Italian restaurants throughout Long Island.

Satya Eastern Kitchen Has Closed

Last week, Satya Eastern Kitchen closed its Times Square location. Here’s a picture of the scene on 46th and 8th — the Satya lights are off and the signs on the door say they have closed.

I’ve been meaning to try Satya Eastern Kitchen — which debuted at 46th and 8th Avenue about six weeks ago — since passing it in a cab, on my way home from a late night of work. Not because of the food, per se, but because after doing a little research on the place, it seemed to incorporate various elements of other Midtown Lunch favorite spots. The building facade and Satya’s lit up sign remind me of the Shake Shack down the street, the restaurant concept is reminiscent of an Asian Chipotle (and we have yet to get a ShopHouse outpost in New York) and the ordering system is a la Schnippers. Asian fast casual? Ok, I’ll bite.
