EAST VILLAGE ? Momofuku Ko is turning five-years-old this month and is celebrating with a celebratory "throwback" dinner on March 24 and 25, with two seatings each night. It's just $85, and also the appearance of some unnamed original chefs and original menu items like Christina Tosi's deep-fried apple pie. [Long Play]

WILLIAMSBURG ? Back in January, Nitehawk Cinema screened American Psycho with food inspired by the film prepared by Francis Derby. The next iteration of this series will be for the film Amelie, with Pernod Absinthe cocktails and a (fittingly French and whimsical) menu prepared by former Top Chef contestant and Marc Forgione sous chef Sarah Nguyen. It's next Tuesday and costs $95. [EaterWire]
