EaterWire: Chodorow Two-Timing with Valenti on UWS, Rickshaw Getting A Sister!

UPPER WEST SIDE—You'd think this Chodorow guy would need to get some rest one of these days, but no. From a reliable source, there is yet another twist in the Zac Pelaccio-Jeffery Chodorow-UWS-Fatty Crab he said, we said, Cutlets said. An A-1 tipster says: "From Chodorow's lips last night at Taste of the Nation, he's dividing the 77th Street/Bway space into two spaces: one for Zak and one for Tom Valenti." Status: CHODOWOOD.

CENTRAL VILLAGERickshaw Dumpling Bar partner Michael Bonadies checks in to drop the bombshell that they're opening a new location at 53 east 8th street (just west of Broadway). Mr. Bonadies: "Rickshaw on 8th Opens Summer 07. Anita's thrilled to be opening the next Rickshaw in NYC. Kenny Lao's a NYC Biz School MBA and it's a 'homecoming' for him." UPDATE: Credit where due: Thorn was way ahead of us. [EaterWire]

BROOKLYN HEIGHTS—More DOH, from a tipster, "Heights Cafe in Brooklyn Heights. Walked past it today and it was DOH'd." [EaterWire Inbox]

WILLIAMSBURG—Things got heated in the kitchen of restaurant/alternative art venue Monkeytown the other night, and not in a good way. A reader alerts us to this passage from the Post's daily crime blotter, "A Williamsburg saloon owner was arrested for choking a cook during an argument over his work performance, authorities said yesterday. Montgomery Knott, 38, clashed with the 23-year-old victim in the Monkey Town Bar on North Third Avenue near Kent Avenue at around 6 p.m. on May 5, cops said. When the victim threatened to quit, Knott slammed him against the floor and a wall, then choked him, cops said. The victim suffered neck and wrist lacerations." And he didn't get to see the end of the movie either. [NYP]
