3) Chelsea: The Robs bring word that Chelsea tapas bar El Quinto Pino is reopening this week after a short break for reorganization.

A staff forager procures local ingredients like Blooming Hill Farm’s salad greens and Argyle farm’s Greek yogurt. The butter is made in-house, and so is the ice cream..."

5) Midtown: Midtown Lunch reports that Oaxaca (Wa Ha Ka) Grill on 47th Street between Park and Lexington, opened this afternoon: "Though the menu screams out more Chipotle then Oaxacan cuisine I’m still temped to try their filet mignon burrito."
