LOWER EAST SIDE—According to Toronto Life, Cutlets, and Pete Wells for the Diner's Journal, Toronto's top chef Susur Lee will be the chef and partner at the restaurant opening in the Thompson LES hotel this fall. Says Toronto Life: "He has not yet decided on a name for the new restaurant, which is scheduled to open for New York’s fashion week in September. And though he will be personally running the new place and cooking there, he intends to keep cooking at Lee when he’s in Toronto. Susur, next door, will close on May 31." [Toronto Life]

MIDTOWN— According to this Chowhound post and then confirmed with a call to the restaurant, Top Chef winner Hung Huynh will be working at upscale kosher joint Solo through at May or June. Originally the gig was just supposed to be for the month of March, but maybe Hung's learned to like the place. [Chowhound]

PARK SLOPEBlue Ribbon, a group of restaurants known for keeping late hours, is closing up shop early at the Park Slope location. Says Brownstoner: "Blue Ribbon, which stayed open until 2am Monday through Thursday and 4 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, is now only open until midnight Monday through Thursday and until 2 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. A 5th Ave. manager we spoke to last night said wee-hours dining will continue at Blue Ribbon's Manhattan spots." [Brownstoner]

EAST HARLEM— You may remember Scott Stringer from such political jobs as Manhattan Borough President and six term state assemblyman. But don't forget he's a cookbook author as well. On April 9th at The Tank, foodie group Eating Liberally hosts an event featuring Stringer, his book, and a cooking demo. [EaterWire]
