EaterWire: EU Deux, Baum Acquires Block, Gino's To be Rubbed

· See above: E.U. Deux is three days out. The line forms to the Avenue B side of the restaurant, please. [EaterWire]

· PR demigod and burgeoning blog mogul Jennifer Baum has acquired Evyn Block Communications. Block deals mostly with lifestyle brands and their client list will be absorbed by Baum's new lifestyle division. [Bizbash]

· The Cuozzer gets into the Le Madeleine lease situation that we'd touched on a week back, but also drops a bombshell about UES legend Gino: World War II-vintage Italian spot Gino (780 Lexington Ave.), a favorite of Gay Talese and Woody Allen, says it will close Tuesday because of a union problem that's hard to sort out. A waiter told me, "In the kitchen, the people, they cross the border without papers, but now they say pay them like they pay us." [NYP]
