Standard Expansion
Biergarten at The Standard Hotel New York is such a hit that the place is expanding. Now tables are set up outside on the sidewalk, giving more opportunity for sausage eating and beer swilling. Biergarten, The Standard Hotel New York , 848 Washington St., New York, NY 10014, 212-645-4646.
 
Report Card Time
Los Angeles-style letter grades are finally coming to the New York City dining scene. Starting at the end of July, Department of Health (DOH) inspections will begin and then restaurants will be forced to hang a letter grade---"A" for best---to show how the DOH has graded the eatery's cleanliness and hygiene.
 
Check in, Check out the Farmers Market
The new ANdAZ Wall Street hotel and its in-house restaurant, Wall & Water, now hosts a weekly farmers market every Saturday from now until November. Most of the participating local farms supply Wall & Water with ingredients. In addition, there will be a band, free samples, and the occasional cooking class.
