GREENPOINTSchmooks Pizza in Greenpoint re-opened today. It was closed all of August for renovations. They're still serving pizza, but the inside is radically different with a huge coffee counter where the seating used to be. [EaterWire]

JOHNNY ZZZZS—Pastry chef and Top Chef: Just Desserts judge Johnny Iuzzini explains why pastry chefs are a sensitive breed and what it means for the upcoming TV show: "We're used to being locked in a basement, fighting for recognition on the menu, fighting for our little space in the kitchen, fighting for our tools, for our refrigerator space or whatever else. We always feel like we're the black sheep of the family... So you take a bunch of people like us and you take away the two things that matter the most to them - time and recipes... We don't do anything without a recipe." And not only are the contestants super-mean and cranky, they cry. A lot. [FED]
