Kool Blue looks like it is still not open. See the front of the restaurant.
But, don't be fooled. They are indeed open for deliveries and take out with the entry to the side. Need a place to eat your hot and pricey hamburger during these very cold winter days? Don't come inside, please eat on the sidewalk. How about on a slanted metal table on the side of the building, next to where the dogs pee and the late night drunks vomit.
Seriously, I am sure they don't have approval to have outdoor seating (they have not been on the CB3 calendar anytime recently), but I'm unsure if this counts as seating, since it is standing. But it encourages people to eat on the sidewalk, so possibly it falls under the auspices of sidewalk seating. Anybody from CB3 out there reading this?
I did go in and ask if they were planning to open the restaurant. The answer was "yes." When? "Soon."
