TRIBECA— Fresh restaurant will have a new chef, Michael Ferraro, starting on July 28th. The former chef Kento Komoto moved back to Japan, and the new owners made the hiring choice after former owner Eric Tevrow was found guilty of tax evasion.

EAST VILLAGE— The awning above St. Marks pizza place Pizzanini advertising a 'Wine Bar' have been up for over two weeks. But when Gothamist did a spot check, the place was dry: "According to the minutes from a past Community Board 3 meeting, Pizzanini was approved for a license to sell wine in 2006. Follow-up calls have elicited sullen responses ranging from 'No wine, no beer' to 'Why do you want to know?'" [Gothamist]

TRIBECA— Late last week the Sun reported that Collective Unconscious a performance space in Tribeca would have to move at the end of the month when its lease runs out because of plumbing issues. We hear now, via a letter to the performers, that the sewage issue is so bad that the place has already closed. [NYS, EaterWire]

MIDTOWN EAST— Fork in the Road brings some news from Mia Dona: "Now you can get Michael Psilakis' roasted octopus with fingerling potatoes, gnudi with ricotta and truffle butter or grilled sea trout with baby beets delivered to your door. At least if you live in midtown. Mia Dona, which El Bruni two-starred, is making its entire menu available for delivery in range of 48th to 68th Streets between Park Avenue to the East River."
