Maison Kayser's Fète du Pain; One Year In at Thirty Acres

JERSEY CITY ? Eater National talks to Kevin and Alex Pemoulie of the one-year-old Jersey City hit Thirty Acres. They recently got their liquor license (finally): "We're going to start small and work on beer and wine, and make sure everyone is on top of that, to start. [...] Introducing a beverage program with cocktails is a huge deal. It's not something we can just do overnight, so we want to make sure we're doing it right." Head to Eater National for more about the restaurant's first year and the Pemoulies. [Eater National]

UPPER EAST SIDE ? From May 13 to 19, Maison Kayser is celebrating Fête du Pain, the French festival of bread. Every day there will be a different bread special, starting with tabatière?a farmers' bread from mid-western France?on Monday and ending with a selection of three different ones on Sunday to close out the week.

COFFEE WIRE ? Funny person Jerry Seinfeld visited NPR this week to talk about coffee. Apparently he used to abstain from coffee but "My theory is 98% of all human endeavor is a way of killing time," and meeting people over coffee is one way to do that. He apparently used to abstain from coffee but now drinks enough to launch a webseries devoted to drinking coffee with other comedians. [NPR]
