NEW YORK CITY— This Wild Edibles saga is never ending. Today Brandworkers, the group that has been protesting seafood purveyor Wild Edibles for almost a year now, accused the company of forming 'front' businesses so they could continue selling to restaurants that are involved in the boycott. While the Wild Edibles owner told Grub Street that the accusations were nonsense, Brandworkers sent us some evidence indicating otherwise. The company they used to sell to the restaurant Artisanal, Blue Harvest, resides at the same address as Wild Edibles. Fishy. [EaterWire]

LOWER EAST SIDE— Attention LES telecommuters, writers, artists, and the like: Frankies will be serving brunch 7 days a week from 11 a.m. - 4 p.m. They're also bringing back that incred egg, bacon & cheese sandwich. [EaterWire]

NEW YORK CITY— Favorite grass fed meat producer Fleisher's may be getting into the home delivery market. From a worker: "Fleisher's, is researching the possibility of starting an NYC meat-delivery service - whatever cuts you want of their locally raised, free range, grass-fed and grass-fed/grain finished, hormone-free, 'happy' cow/pig/lamb flippin' ridiculously delicious meat, to people's homes and offices. They're trying to figure out how much of an audience there's be for such a service." [EaterWire]

TRIBECA— Dive bar Raccoon Lodge has been hit by the DOH. A correspondent dropped by today and encountered a group of workers milling around outside and some ominous yellow stickers in the window: "I asked one of them when they were planning on reopening, she said 'hopefully this week.' Another woman said 'in a week.' I asked why they shut down, and they said they needed to do some 'repairs' and that 'the bar is old.' They also told me to come back when it was ready because it will be better than new." [EaterWire]
