The Stalled TGI Friday's; a New Boozy Brunch

UNION SQUARE— Remember how TGI Friday's was supposed to open in Union Square this month? A spot check reveals absolutely zero progress has been made. [EaterWire]

AIRPORTS EVERYWHEREMorimoto is branching out and launching a chain of casual airport eateries: "The concept, to be called Skewers, will center around yakitori and will be Morimoto's interpretation of Japanese street food (no sushi at all). Prices will be well under $20 and as should be expected with an airport casual spot, the menu will have "broad appeal," meaning grilled and deep-fried meats and vegetables, all on the namesake skewers." [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]
