Pier 25 Seeking Snack Vendors; New Vegan Cafe for Uptown

Curbed NY

TRIBECA— The revamped Pier 25 in Tribeca's slice of Hudson River Park, set to open in October, is looking better and better. Or rockier and rockier (see above). And Hudson River Park Trust recently issued an RFP looking for a snack kiosk/sports concessions operator. It outlines the opportunities for Pier 25, including eateries, noting that the park along the river has over 7,000,000 visitors per year. Those crowds get hungry and, with numbers like that, this could make for a boatload of Brontosaurus Burgers and other tasty treats. [Curbed NY]

UPPER EAST SIDE— Grub Street reports that Ronen Seri, the owner of Blossom in Chelsea and Café Blossom on the Upper West Side, is opening V-Note, a vegan lounge and restaurant at 1522 First Ave. The menu will be similar to the one at Blossom. [GS]

CHARITYWIRE—On August 29, 2010, the folks at Epicurean Management in conjunction with dell’anima, L’Artusi and Anfora are hosting a talent showcase featuring members of the restaurant industry: "In recognition and appreciation of the many artists who moonlight as servers and cooks, we are excited to provide a platform for their expression. This event will include a silent auction of donated works of visual art and an afternoon of varied performance arts at The Metropolitan Pavilion." Proceeds go to charity and tickets can be bought here. [EaterWire]

FATTIES— During a report from the Wisconsin State Fair by Fox6 News about the Krispy Kreme Cheeseburger (yes it uses actual, fresh Krispy Kreme doughnuts, delivered daily), we learn the monstrosity only has 500 calories. Which is sort of unbelievable! But then it maybe is believable! But then there's the optional topping of chocolate-covered bacon, so that probably will throw off the numbers a bit. [Eater National]
