WILLIAMSBURG ? Ligaya Mishan heads to Parish Hall for this week's Hungry City review: "For the most part, Parish Hall lives up to its name: it is a kind of fashionable, post-hip gathering place for Williamsburg, where you can make a reservation (fancy that), bring your hard-of-hearing parents, and perhaps even experience that nearly extinct species of event, the date, should you ever stumble into a romance that transcends texting."

CHELSEA ? The Moonstruck Diner is the latest restaurant to feel the wrath of lawyer/thorn in the industry's side Maimon Kirschenbaum, who's filed a class-action lawsuit (warning: pdf) alleging the diner failed to pay employees minimum wagor overtime. [EaterWire]
