LONG ISLAND CITY— Tomorrow the Second Annual New York Food Film Festival kicks off at Water Taxi Beach. It goes until the 20th, doors open and food will be served starting at 7 p.m., and the movies start at 8:30. Check the schedule here. [EaterWire]

NOHO— Fans of the Tasting Room who are upset that it closed without proper notice can pay $165 to sample Aleveras' food at the Astor Center: "Alevras will cook the last supper the restaurant never had, at the Astor Center on the June 27. It will be a seven-course tasting menu accompanied by Italian craft beers. 'I was pissed off that he closed the restaurant without telling me,' explains Astor Center director Lesley Townsend. 'People loved the place, loved him.'" [Cutlets]

CARROL GARDENS— A tipster and fan of Frankies 457 writes in with a new development: "Good news for Brooklyn! Frankies 457--which always has a fricking line around the block--has an outside waiting area now. It's right off the garden in a converted driveway. Benches are set up. I enjoyed a glass of wine outside last night while I waited for my table...Summer is getting a little less hectic out here in Carroll Gardens!!" [EaterWire]
