New, 2 comments

TRIBECA— Per the invite (above) from the inbox and The Feed, Forge will debut next month as Marc Forgione. As you'll recall, owners of the Miami restaurant The Forge threatened to sue if Forge owner Marc Forgione didn't change the name of his restaurant, because they want to open a branch of their steakhouse in NYC. [EaterWire]

FORT GREENE— According to press materials, Fort Greene's The General Greene is now open on Mondays, now serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and has a new late afternoon bar menu. [EaterWire]

LOWER EAST SIDE— Some interesting plywood news from Steve Lewis: "Steve is currently working on a new space on Orchard and Rivington, set to open in about 9 weeks. It is set to be a completely new restaurant (they already have the liquor license) by a new crew with a famous 'Top Chef' manning the kitchen." [GoaG]

THE CHANG GALAXY— From the Food Section: "Chef David Chang is among seven winners of the USA Network's inaugural 'Character Approved Awards' honoring 'individuals from a cross-section of creative disciplines who are positively influencing American culture.'" [FS]
