EaterWire: Brass Monkey's Rooftop Bar, Zereoue Reopens, and the Green Rice Truck

MEATPACKING DISTRICT— Urban Daddy has the details on favorite happy hour watering hole Brass Monkey's new rooftop bar: "In true Monkey fashion, the view here isn't golden cupolas and corporate towers: This deck looks out on an asphalt-covered dog run, a parking lot and the West Side Highway. There's a flat screen on the way for movie nights, but the real show is the unobstructed sunset over the river." [UD]

MIDTOWN EAST— Former NFL running back Amos Zereoue just reopened his West African restaurant Zereoue, which he has completely revamped. The press release has the full details: "'I wanted to basically start from scratch, from the way the place looked, to the names of the dishes, to the napkins and flatware we used,' said Zereoue....Zereoué's chef Sow Abraham fuses traditional Ivory Coast dishes with classic French cuisine, creating a diverse array of distinctive fare."

NOHO— Cutty learns that RICE, the Asian chain in Noho and DUMBO runs their trucks on recycled oil: "...we fuel our delivery van with filtered Waste Vegetable Oil (WVO); we use the oil for cooking then use it for fuel. This same van transports, every week, over 1000lbs of organic waste to the Red Hook Farm, in Brooklyn. (Operated by Added Value.) Who convert the waste into fertile organic compost." [Cutlets]
