New Orleans Hits Hester; Blue Ribbon Beer Garden

LOWER EAST SIDE ? Starting this weekend, Hester Street Fair is getting a couple new additions: Exchange Alley chef Paul Gerard, serving up jambalaya balls and cayenne-lemonade, as well as New Orleans-style snowballs from Imperial Woodpecker. Gerard will also be a fixture at Hester Nights starting next Thursday. [EaterWire]

YELP WANTED ? How much is the soul of a Yelper worth? According to one Craigslist posting, $25. Someone is hiring Yelpers with 50 reviews or more to write five star reviews of restaurants. And there's an extra $25 in it for you if "cut and paste that same review onto a couple other social media websites." [Eater National]

MIDTOWN/UPPER WEST SIDE ? Team Daniel Boulud has two wine dinners coming up. Tomorrow at db Bistro Moderne's communal table is a dinner focusing on the wines of Chablis, for $135 per person. Email here for reservations. And at Boulud Sud next Monday, they're cooking up a whole roasted lamb with wines from Greece and Crete. That one's $90, with reservations available online. [EaterWire]

LOWER EAST SIDE ? Eric and Bruce Bromberg of Blue Ribbon announced today that their East Village fried chicken restaurant is shooting for a summer opening, and that at the end of this month they'll debut a Blue Ribbon Beer Garden on the Lower East Side. Per Grub Street, that'll be a 60-seat beer garden at 190 Allen St. [EaterWire, Grub Street]
