New, 1 comment

DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN— Following the success of his DIY-seeming chef counter dinners next to upscale grocer Brooklyn Fare, chef Cesar Ramirez said he was going to expand the concept into a larger, more permanent space. He tells Grub Street today that those plans have been scrapped. However he will introduce wine pairings in June. [GS]

LOWER EAST SIDERed Velvet Lounge, that weird cupcakery/bar mashup is opening on 174 Rivington. And look at what the poor cocktail waitresses have to wear (right). [EaterWire]
