Oenephiles, take note: Alain Ducasse wants to make you happy. Benoit and Adour Alain Ducasse have introduced bottles left over from Lespinasse and Essex House to their wine lists. The purchase of these wines predates the introduction of the euro, allowing Ducasse to pass the savings on to you, as the saying goes.
Brian Bistrong (last seen at The Harrison) will be the chef/owner of Braeburn, on Perry Street in the West Village. Set to open later this summer, look for local, new American cuisine on the menu.
The stakes have been raised for the city's most expensive hamburger. And the winner is: the Wall Street Burger Shoppe, which offers a burger topped with gold flakes (yum!) and 25 grams of black truffles. All for just $175.
Talk is sweet on the Apiary, a new project from Neil Manacle (a partner at Mesa Grill and Bolo). Set to open in June, look for American eats at this new spot on lower Third Avenue's burgeoning restaurant row.
Sarabeth's will replace An American Place and Larry Forgione's Signature Café in Lord & Taylor stores here in New York; it's part of a city-wide rollout that's set to take place over the next two years.
What happens when East Village bar PDT, hot dogs, and chef Wylie Dufresne collide? The Wylie Dog. A $5 deep-fried, hot dog bun-crumb-encrusted wiener topped with ketchup molasses, freeze-dried onions, and shredded romaine lettuce. PDT, 113 St. Marks Pl., New York, NY 10009, 212-614-0386.
AQ Kafe will open as the expanded version of the cafeteria in the Scandinavian House in August. Don't worry---there's no lutefisk on the menu (for now).
Zak Pelaccio, Ric Camac, and pitmaster Robert Richter have partnered to open a barbecue joint focused on the flavors of Southeast Asia called Fatty ‘Cue. It's set to open in Williamsburg this summer.
As the weather warms up, so do the city's restaurant rooftops. SUSHISAMBA 7, located in the West Village, just opened its rooftop for al fresco dining. SUSHISAMBA 7, 87 Seventh Ave. S., New York, NY 10014, 212-691-7885.
After nine years of serving just dinner, the popular Chelsea eater, The Red Cat, is finally serving lunch (Tuesday to Saturday). The Red Cat, 227 Tenth Ave., New York, NY 10011, 212-242-1122.
It appears Thomas Keller's Time Warner Center restaurant-bakery, Bouchon Bakery, is going to be expanding. And in a serious way. The famed chef plans to open a number of Bouchons around the city---though the outlets will be more bakery than eatery. Bouchon Bakery, 10 Columbus Cir., Third Floor, New York, NY 10019, 212-823-9366.
Dan Silverman, who recently left his post at Lever House Restaurant, has been named as the top toque at Andre Balazs' forthcoming catwalk/hotel in the Meatpacking District, The Standard.
After hours of reviewing and deliberating top Averna cocktails over a three-week period, judges named mixologists Damon Dyer of Death & Co. and Don Lee of PDT as finalists in the 'HAVE Averna Cocktail Competition.' A total of five finalists were selected from three regional competitions and will travel to Sicily to compete in the finals at the Averna distillery this fall.
After his Greenwich Hotel swung open its pearly doors recently, Robert De Niro has announced plans to open the world's first sushi-themed hotel: the Nobu Hotel will be located in Manhattan's Financial District and will contain, of course, an outpost of the famed sushi restaurant.
A Voce will expand, opening a second location. The new outpost will replace Café Gray in the Time Warner Center, which has closed. In related news, chef Andrew Carmellini has officially stuffed his last ravioli at A Voce. No word yet on what he'll do next. A Voce, 41 Madison Ave., New York, NY 10010, 212-545-8555.
Daniel Eun of PDT won the third annual Rhum Clement cocktail challenge at the Astor Center with his cocktail of white and dark rum named "Bitches' Brew." Cheers to Daniel!
The Little Owl has woken up for lunch. Yes, that's right. The popular West Village eatery is now open for lunch. The Little Owl, 90 Bedford St., New York, NY 10014, 212-741-4695.
The Maccioni family---of Le Cirque fame, of course---has plans to open a new restaurant. Details are scant at the moment, but word on the street is that the new restaurant will focus on either the cuisine of Tuscany or seafood.
BarFry may be well and gone, but from its ashes comes Cabrito: David Schuttenberg will man the stoves, serving up Mexican grub, with, on the basis of the last occupant, an emphasis on deep-fried things. Cabrito, 50 Carmine St., New York, NY 10014, no phone available yet.
Spice is expanding their downtown mini-empire by opening a new location on Second Avenue and Fifth Street. Expect more of the same pan-Asian grub geared for students and budget eaters.
