LOWER EAST SIDE ? Down East Clam Shack, the new spinoff of the Grey Lady, is now Nor East Clam Shack. The name change comes after the team there received a cease-and-desist letter from Long Island distributors, Down East Seafood. [Bowery Boogie]

TRIBECA ? The owners of Benares are opening a second location in the Tribeca space that formerly housed Matsugen. They're aiming for a September 20 opening. [Zagat, Tribeca Citizen]

LOWER EAST SIDE ? Having trouble deciding where to eat on the Lower East Side? Jolie Warbet has launched Lady of Grand LES food walking tours, which hit food and drinks hotspots throughout the neighborhood. [EaterWire]

THE CHAINS ? Eater National is on the fast food news today, bringing word that Cinnabon is getting into the pizza business with the excessively terrible-sounding Pizzabon, which they're currently testing in Atlanta. Meanwhile, faux artisinal pizza chain Domino's has struck the "Pizza" from their logo, trying to emphasize the fact that "So much of [their] menu is beyond pizza." [Eater National]
