New, 8 comments

RIDICULOUS BOOK DEALS— Per Eat Me Daily: "In what might be the first instance of a food meme to land a book deal, Publisher's Marketplace reports the mind-boggling news that Jason Day and Aaron Chronister, better known as the inventors of...The Bacon Explosion, have landed a six-figure book deal." [EMD]

MIDTOWN— The above signage isn't just you average Culture Jamming or AdBusters stunt. The poster covers plywood for the soon to open Energy Kitchen, a chain of healthy fast food restaurants. [PSFK]

SOHO— Grub Street reports the space that was once Bar Veloce, then Bar Tonno, then Room 4 Dessert, has reopened as Bar Veloce Club: "...the new name refers to the club-style leather U booths, Persian rugs, and mini-lamps that now give the narrow space a gentlemanly vibe, almost like a tony airport lounge...Movies are projected onto the wall while jazz plays, and classic cocktails are now front and center in a handsomely bound menu..." [GS]

USHG— For the month of March, All Union Square Hospitality Group restaurants (except Shake Shack) will serve their own version of chicken soup. $2 of each order goes to City Harvest. [EaterWire]
