The Dish: AK-47, Mole

The Dish, part II, for this fine Friday afternoon. Two more newbies to work into your weekend planning.

1) Angels and Kings: Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz and his band of merry hipsters will open AK-47, for short, in the East Village this weekend. Quintessential rock promises to inform everything from the drinks to the decor, which is said to feature framed mug shots of Johnny Cash, Jimi Hendrix and others. Pete: "Everyone I roll with is into Goonies," he said, "I want it to be like Shredder's hangout in 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2'." 500 E. 11th St, East Vilalge; (212) 254-4090. [NYM; NME; UD]

2) Móle: Taking over the short-lived Win49, as Lalli notes, there's a new taco game in town on the LES. At 8-tables big, it's chairs to press hit ratio is about 1:1, but perhaps for good reason. Owners Nick Cervera and Lupe Elizalde are getting very good early reviews for their food, which, has The Robs say, is familiar 'taquito-to-torta territory' combined with penty of paella and mixote. NB, it's BYO for now. 205 Allen St., nr. Houston St.; (212) 777-3200 [Rare, NYM]
