CHELSEA ? A Voce's Missy Robbins was the big winner at yesterday's all-lady opening of the 10-city pork tour Cochon 555. She'll face off against the other cities' champions at the Grand Cochon event at Aspen Food & Wine on June 16. [EaterWire]

EAST VILLAGE ? Paul Gerard's New Orleans-flavored speakeasy Exchange Alley is celebrating Mardi Gras tomorrow with a number of food and drink specials, including Gerard's dirty pigeon gumbo: a gumbo made with a dark roux, beef, pork, and chicken livers, with a fried squab on top. [EaterWire]

CARROLL GARDENS ? Nightingale 9, the new Vietnamese restaurant by Robert Newton and Kerry Diamond of Seersucker and Smith Canteer, will open on February 21, per a press release sent out earlier today. [EaterWire]

SOUTH BRONX ? Bronx Brewery has signed a lease on a space for a brewery on Walnut Avenue in the South Bronx. The company currently operates out of a brewery in Connecticut. [Crain's]

NOVELTY SANDWICHES ? McDonald's has rolled out burgers in France featuring beloved French cheeses, and the French absolutely love it. This is part of the chain's attempt to incorporate more French things into their brand in that country, though it doesn't seem to be working very well. Head over to Eater National to find out who's pissed. [Eater National]
