Le Gamin now Village Bistro East; Pepin Responds

New, 2 comments

MISUNDERSTANDINGS—In a Miami Times piece today, Jacques Pepin admitted to hooking up with more than 10,000 fellow cooks, servers, and bartenders in his lifetime. Now he's in the comments to explain: "...I must be too old and not "hip" enough to understand that the TRUE meaning of "hooked up with" now means "slept with." My interpretation of your question was that you were asking how many people I have encountered, cooked with, worked with, etc. in the food world. SHAME ON YOU!!" Sadface. [Miami Times]

UPPER WEST SIDE—Dovetail reopens tonight after its weeklong renovations. Now there is a bar, a bar menu, and 20 new seats in the dining room. Oh, and there's now a cheese cart and a Armagnac cart. [EaterWire]

BRUNIOCALYPSE— Grub Street learns that Frank Bruni has sold the television rights to his memoir Born Round. They think Bradley Cooper, or perhaps one of these guys (yes, Mandy Patinkin), should be cast in the part. [GS]

WEST VILLAGE—West Village spot EN Japanese Brasserie will begin serving lunch for the first time this Monday. [EaterWire]

EAST VILLAGE— EV Grieve reports that Le Gamin has reopened after renovations as Village Bistro East. Details are scarce as to how close it is to its predecessor, so early feedback is welcome. [EVG]
