New, 3 comments

LONG ISLAND CITY—M. Wells Dinette has an assortment of treats available for pre-order this Easter weekend, including the "Eat-All-Day Pie." That's a pecan chess pie filled with cinnamon rolls, port-soaked-chocolate-covered lady fingers, chocolate eggs, chocolate covered corn flakes, spiced mixed nuts and one giant cream-filled egg. Place your order by emailing or calling at least 24 hours in advance for pickup on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Go on Sunday and you can also watch them make maple taffy in a trough of snow.

WEST VILLAGE—From now until the end of Passover, on Tuesday, April 2, Jeffrey's Grocery is serving a special Passover menu prepared by chef Michael Toscano of Perla. Dishes incude a classic matzoh ball soup, black cod gefilte fish terrine, and smoked lamb shank with Jerusalem artichoke kugel. [EaterWire]

UPPER EAST SIDE—Maison Kayser announced a new partnership with Le Bernardin and will begin supplying the restaurant with all their bread. The deal entails delivering bread to Le Bernardin three times a day, to guarantee perfect freshness at all times. [EaterWire]

COPYCATS—Chefs and restaurateurs are starting to take serious measures to protect their dishes. Some now require staff to sign work agreements, while others are looking into copyrights. David Burke is among those exploring trademarks, after he missed out on securing the rights to the cake pop, which he claims to have invented 15 years ago: "We were the pioneers of putting cake on a stick."
