Looks like Frank Bonanno is going to hit the mark with Bones, the tiny, hip noodle bar at 301 East Seventh Avenue that he wanted to get open in time for New Year's Eve. Although the promotional card says that Bones is coming in January 2009, the liquor-license hearing on December 19 went well, and Bones will actually open its doors at 5 p.m. Tuesday, December 30.

Initially, Bones will focus on dinner and late-night fare, as well as innovative cocktails (the promo piece below gives just a taste of the lineup), but Bonanno plans to add lunch in March.
And Bones looks like it could have a very good run. After all, it has good bones: It's flanked by Mizuna and Luca D'Italia, two of Bonanno's very successful restaurants.
