Meatball-Shop-esque Mini chain. We just heard that a resto themed around mini-burgers is set to open in the heart of the West Village this fall. It's called - wait for it - Slide, and will take over the space that used to house The Mussel Pot, another venture that put the focus on multiple incarnations of a single dish. We think burgers may track a little better in this tourist (and bar) laden hood, the new eatery will serve seven to 10 signature options like crab, lamb, bulgogi and veggie sliders.
In addition to the teeny patties, the joint will mix up an array of milkshakes (with several boozy varities in the mix) and an array of cannoli. No word yet on exact opening dates yet, but the debut is slated for sometime in March (174 Bleecker St.).
