Walker's Expansion, Eataly, Guayoyo, and Dumbo Muffin

1) Tribeca: Roving photog Will Femia notices some new developments at the long planned expansion at Walker's, the landmarked Tribeca bar. According to the permits in the windows, they are finally expanding into the space next door after re-doing the facade and adding outdoor seating back in May '08. By the looks of it, it could double the size of the 130 year-old space. [PLYWOOD]
