The Old Homestead Restaurant has unveiled their new third-floor dining room, a renovated second-floor dining room and a new bar. In addition, the restaurant has a new private dining room designed by none other than Julian Schanbel. All the renovations are a result of the restaurant's lost lease, requiring a move next door. Old Homestead Restaurant, 56 Ninth Ave., New York, NY 10011, 212-242-9040.
Spike Mendelsohn, of Top Chef fame, edged out New York native Bobby Flay, winning the best burger crown at the South Beach Food and Wine Festival's Burger Bash. Though it won't affect the restaurant's popularity much, Shake Shack finished much lower in the rankings. Shake Shack, Madison Square Park, New York, NY 10010, 212-889-6600.
After spending the better part of the new year recovering from a car accident, piazzolo Dom DeMarco is back slinging pies at his reopened pizzeria Di Fara Pizza. Di Fara Pizza, 1424 Ave. J, Brooklyn, NY 11230, 718-258-1367.
Michael Psilakis announced that the old Kefi space will be turned into a comfort food spot named Gus and Gabriel's. The inexpensive gastropub (nothing more than $16 on the menu) is scheduled to open later this spring.
Franklin Becker has been brought in as a consulting chef to devise a new menu at Delicatessen. The famed Rueben fritters are gone, but some of the restaurant's fusion dishes will remain through the transition. Delicatessen, 54 Prince St., New York, NY 10012, 212-226-0211.
Craftsteak is launching a "Halfsteak" promotion to their menu: half portions of steaks and sandwiches for less than $15 and snacks for just $6. To round it out, you can also order half-pints of beer and cupcakes. Craftsteak, 85 Tenth Ave., New York, NY 10011, 212-400-6699.
Word came down this week that Momofuku Bakery & Milk Bar may add actual cocktails to their menu. The Milk Bar even has a liquor license already, so it would not be a difficult transition, though their owners have yet to officially confirm the rumor. Momofuku Bakery & Milk Bar, 207 Second Ave., New York, NY 10003, 212-254-3500.
The owners of AGO in The Greenwich Hotel announced that Andrew Carmellini, last at A Voce, will be taking over as chef in the cursed space. Ken Friedman, of The Spotted Pig, was also named as a design consultant. AGO, The Greenwich Hotel, 377 Greenwich St., New York, NY 10013, 212-925-3797.
