EaterWire: Now With More Rat Fallout!

GREENWICH VILLAGE—In response to our rat-tastic shutter coverage earlier, a tipster writes in with the news that the kosher-certified Cold Stone Creamery on Astor Place and Broadway has also been closed down by the DOH. We called the creamery; the staff was not sure when it would reopen. [EaterWire Inbox]

GREENWICH VILLAGE—NYU students, commence panic: The 8th St and Mercer outpost of delightfully bready chain Au Bon Pain has also been shut down by the DOH, as reported by Cutlets. [Cutlets]

EAST VILLAGE—In regards to Friday's post about The Bowery Hotel, a reader writes, "the outdoor bar will be at the mezzanine level (2nd floor) - on a terrace "in the shape of a question mark" - there is no roof access - we were told by the doorman/bellhop when we checked in this Saturday ... oh, and the Japanese restaurant is going to be in "the basement."." A Japanese restaurant in the basement? At a MacPherson/Goode hotel? How novel. [EaterWire Inbox]

PARK SLOPE—Plywood veteran Alchemy, a newish Park Slope gastropub, has already lost its chef. Sayeth a tipster, "ate there the other night, one of the servers assured me that Chef Jared King was no longer chef of Alchemy." [EaterWire Inbox]
