[Eater National]

WEST VILLAGE— Jason Zukas, an alum of Andre Balazs' Sunset Beach and a winner of a little show called Chopped will take over as exec chef of Charles while permanent chef Kristine Mana-ay is on maternity leave. [EaterWire]

EAST VILLAGE— This Sunday, tequila bar Mayahuel is launching a brunch program. The brunch will feature Mexican hangover remedies (fried tortillas being one of them) and cocktails like their Bloody Maria and the cider based Cinnsation. [EaterWire]
