TECH STUFF—Do you like oysters? Do you want to be able to drop all kinds of oyster knowledge on your pals? Oysterpedia, a new iphone app from New York restaurant The Mermaid Inn, contains information on 200 types of North American oysters and allows you to save and rank oysters as you try them. The full version costs $1.99, but you can get a 60-oyster version for free. [iTunes via GS]

SECRETS, SECRETS—Le Bernardin pastry chef Michael Laiskonis has no time for chefs who are secretive about their recipes: "We celebrate conviviality and community through food. There’s a reason it’s called the hospitality business, right? So why should we guard our intellectual, creative and technical ideas from one another?" Spanish chef Ferran Adrià was a bit more succinct: "Secrets are stupid." [Wine Enthusiast via Eater National]

LITTLE ITALY— TONY has a look inside Mulberry Project, a new cocktail haven from alums of GoldBar, Milk & Honey, and Bagatelle in the old home of My Little Secret. They report that "the cavernlike drinkery is kitted out with a stainless-steel bar, rock & roll DJs, and a red-and-black wall tagged by graffiti artist Curtis Love." Click through for more info.
