EAST VILLAGE— Some news from Seymour Burton owner Adam Cohn: "...after seven months of dilatory weekend brunch service we are hanging up our eggs Benedict. Last weekend was our last brunch service until further notice. Our brunch was beloved but ultimately unpopular and we grew tired of twisting arms to get our employees to work it. Now that it’s summer I can’t keep them out of the park even if I could tie them up. Instead we shall expand our dinner service by opening Monday nights and by offering a take-away and delivery menu, available for order by phone or at a soon-to-be-constructed walk-up order window."

UPPER EAST SIDE— Another season, another design change at Park Avenue Spring/Summer/Winter/Fall. They've got a new menu, and returned the space to look something like this. [EaterWire]

BED-STUY— The latest email blast from the owner of Red Hook liquor store LeNell's reveals that she may be moving into a space in Bed-Stuy: "Well, after exploring Bed Stuy this past week, I'm reconsidering that thought. Bed Stuy, can you love a skinny white girl with a load of whiskey? If you've been trekking out to Red Hook to shop here, would you make the trip to a space a few blocks from a subway in Bed Stuy? In the meantime, I paid my June rent and we are taking it day by day." [Cutlets]

BROOKLYN HEIGHTS— VittlesVamp brings word that Tazza is opening a second branch: "...word on the street is that new location is going to be across from the 2/3 Clark Street subway stop and the St. George Hotel dormitories. If it is true, North Brooklyn Heights residents may finally have the all-day, all-night hang they've long deserved -- not to mention a long-term tenant in the long-empty 72 Clark Street restaurant space." [VittlesVamp]

NEW YORK CITY— Apparently A&E isn't getting enough takers for their new Rocco DiSpirito cooking show pilot. This, from a mass email: "If you are planning an important meal or simply want to share a significant moment over food, then A&E and celebrity chef Rocco DiSpirito can solve your cooking emergency! Invite Rocco into your kitchen, and he will teach you what to cook, where to find the ingredients and how to prepare the ideal meal for your special occasion." [EaterWire]
