Marfa, soon to be Bento Burger via EVG

1) East Village: EV Grieve and Grub Street report on Bento Burger, the new burger spot replacing Texas-themed restaurant Marfa. The owner explains to EVG: "lots of options on the burgers, probably at least 3 to 4 vegetarian, including a hemp burger, seafood, a Japanese, a Korean. A place where die hard meateaters and strict vegetarians can both call home. Cheap and fun." It should open by the end of April. [PLYWOOD]
