The restaurant also began serving a multi-course, pre-theatre menu for $45. Oak Room, The Plaza, 768 Fifth Ave., New York, NY 10019, 212-758-7777.
Rumors are flying that a Momofuku food cart will open this fall. There's no confirmation or denial quite yet, but David Chang did run a one-day cart promotion earlier this summer, so it's not outside the realm of possibility. Momofuku Noodle Bar, 171 First Ave., New York, NY 10003, 212-475-7899.
After a fire gutted the place earlier this year, Totonno's is slated to reopen in August. Why the delay? The owners are shoring up some unrelated structural issues during the reconstruction. Totonno's, 1544 Second Ave., New York, NY 10028, 212-327-2800.
Smith's has closed, but instead of giving up, owner Danny Abrams plans to turn it into another location of The Mermaid Inn. It would be the city's third Mermaid locale.
Veloce Pizzeria is going mobile. Parked in front of the restaurant is a pedal-powered cart with a big red umbrella. It's slated to go further than the front door sometime in the near future, selling slices around the city. Veloce Pizzeria, 103 First Ave., New York, NY 10009, 212-777-6677.
Ryan Skeen is in at Allen & Delancey. The chef who was last seen at Irving Mill (and at Resto before that) is now cooking at Allen & Delancey which has also had a number of chefs in its first year of business. Allen & Delancey, 115 Allen St., New York, NY 10002, 212-253-5400.
Tailor will close its dining room for the summer. After filing for bankruptcy earlier in the spring, the bar (and food menu at the bar) are your only options for sampling Sam Mason's grub until the cooler weather arrives in September. Tailor, 525 Broome St., New York, NY 10013, 212-334-5182.
Craft's experiment with a private dining room, multiple-course tasting menu is over, and they've scuttled executive chef Damon Wise's Damon: Frugal Friday promotion. Tom: Tuesday Dinner, where chef Colicchio cooks every other Tuesday, however, soldiers on. Craft, 43 E. 19th St., New York, NY 10003, 212-780-0880.
Chef Ed Brown is launching an inexpensive spinoff to Eighty One in his private dining room space called Eighty One Grill.
