EaterWire: Cheyenne Moving South, Team USA Readies, Porn in Bushwick

CHELSEA— The current owner of Cheyenne Diner is close to clinching a deal with a buyer. Sadly, he's not a local: "The landmark railcar-style restaurant is very close to being sold to a buyer in Alabama, who plans to relocate and restore it in the heart of Dixie...'I think he’s very committed,' Papas said. 'There’s other people interested, but it seems he has his heart in it.'" [ChelseaNow]

SAN FRANCISCO— Eater SF visits the Team USA Training Center for the upcoming Bocuse d'Or over on the grounds of the French Laundry: "Last week, the chef duo completed a practice run—which is five and a half hours for two intricate dishes—and Daniel Boulud, Paul Bocuse, and Jerome Bocuse just happened to fly in for feedback and the like." Competition starts in under two weeks. [~ESF~]

BUSHWICK— The Archive, a cafe in Bushwick, now has porn. Just an FYI: "Apparently their abysmally slow in-house wifi connection has convinced them it’s not worth the time it takes to download or stream it, like most post-1998 Americans do." [BushwickBK]

SOHO— In case the news today wasn't sad enough, a downer comment on the Fiamma thread: "Re: the 'zero job prospects': I have a fairly successful restaurant of my own, fortunately; everyday, we probably have about 15 back-of-house applicants (mostly with ridiculously good resumes) that I have to turn away. It's f-d." [Eater Comments]
