**Three Kings Restaurant Group — the team that launched Talde Jersey City — is expanding its empire across the Hudson. They’re opening three new spaces in the Arlo Nomad Hotel and a new spot in Chinatown at the Hotel 50 Bowery. They’re also opening a new spot across the Barclays Center called Atlantic Social Club. The downside, they’ve closed Pork Slope in Brooklyn and will soon shutter Thistle Hill Tavern. —Eater
