Food Section Buzzwrap: 'Even More Of It'

1) FloFab notes that the team behind The Tonic (R.I.P.) on W18th are plotting a new hotel/spa/club/restaurant/thing at Charlton and Varick. The name shall be Charlton House; the proposed opening date, June.

2) Coming to the Park Avenue South dining court (at E18th): Chicago's Japonais. Sez Keil, "Restaurateur Rick Wahlstedt (of Le Colonial) and Miae Lim are collaborating with designer/partner Jeffrey Beers to open the 11,350-square-foot, two-level eatery." (Also noted: Landmarc opening in Trotter space in the Time Warner Center, as we'd heard.)

3) The further the Cuozz drifts off the rails, the more entertaining his work becomes. This week: all trendy, new restaurants suck, so let's go back to the classics. Truer words have perhaps not been spoken: "Lesson: If people like what you're selling, offer them even more of it."
