Fire Shutters Great Jones Cafe; Lucali 2.0 Goes Black

NOHO— A tipster who tried and failed to go to lunch at Great Jones Cafe today reports it was closed due to a fire. A recording on their answering machine reports they hope to open by late next week. [EaterWire]

SOUTH SLOPE— The greatly anticipated—in Park Slope—spinoff of impossibly popular Carroll Gardens pizza joint Lucali just got a paint job, above. Progress! [EaterWire]

WEST VILLAGECommerce, the West Village restaurant that curiously does not take cash, is launching a new "tavern" menu, now served on Saturdays between noon and 5 PM. It has items like salads, short rib sandwiches, fried chicken, spaghetti carbonara, and grilled cheese sandwiches, all from $12 - 19 (that grilled cheese clocks in at $17 by the way).

MIDTOWN— A reader sends in photo evidence of a seizure/shutter situation at Krunch Pizza Bar in Midtown. [EaterWire]

EAST VILLAGE— Wine & Dined has a new run down of some of the best happy hours in the East Village. [W&D]

GREENWICH VILLAGE— From now until they run out—sometime after Christmas—Babbo is serving a three course porcini tasting menu for $59. Unlike the restaurant's other tasting menus, the whole table does not have to order it. [EaterWire]

FOOD PORN—And to end, a little shout out to Eater photographer Daniel Krieger. Check out his blog for a gorgeous food porn of some of the city's best barbecue. [Krieger]
