New, 2 comments

ROOSEVELT ISLAND— Huge news for the restaurant desert of Roosevelt Island. Roosevelt Islander reports that the Applebees/Friday's like restaurant Riverwalk Sports Bar & Grill is set to open by the end of the month. It's divided into a deli side and a restaurant/sports bar side, and their menu and martini list can be found here. [RI]

NIGHTLIFE— Guest of a Guest interviews Steve Lewis about his new Nightlife Preservation Community. The group plans on promoting politicians who are friendly to nightlife, distributing a list of endorsed employees, and "using our skills and word of mouth to attack those politicians that don’t treat us well.” [GoaG]

CELEBS— And in some sad celeb 'chef' news, Katie Lee Joel and Billy Joel have called it quits. So much for him buying her that Sag Harbour restaurant. [NYDN]
