MIDTOWN EASTGuastavino's, a landmark event space under the 59th Street bridge, is opening on May 12 after "substantial renovations." A new executive chef John Stevenson is on board to serve classic American fare. [EaterWire]

SOHO— Cutty brings the news from Andrew WK's new project on 100 Lafayette: "LCD Soundsystem front man, James Murphy, reveals on his label's message board that he’ll be doing a little something there called Special Disco Version." [Cutlets]

LOWER EAST SIDE— Zagat gets dibs on the new menu at Spitzer's Corner: "Lower East Side gastropub Spitzer's Corner has completed a whole new menu, which had been a work-in-progress over the past two months. Consulting chef Wayne Nish (of the late Nish and March) and chef de cuisine Sung Park have dropped everything from the original menu – except the homemade pickles ($4) and the short rib burger ($10)." [Zagat]

TRIBECA— Zagat also brings word that they're loosening up over at Rosanjin: "After two years serving of its Kyoto-style kaiseki dinners as prix fixe–only for $105–150, TriBeCa's Rosanjin is shaking things up. For diners who don't want to commit to the fixed price meal, the jewel-box of a restaurant is now offering an à la carte menu featuring many of the items that appear in the prix fixe." [Zagat]

GREENPOINT— A fan of Greenpoint's Queen's Hideaway writes us to let us know they hired a new chef. His name is Kevin Avery and he was formerly chef de cuisine at Diner. [EaterWire]
