EAST VILLAGE — Alex Stupak is launching a dessert tasting menu at Empellón Cocina starting tonight. The five-course menu is $45 per person, and will only be available from 9:30 p.m. until close.

PRICE HIKES — Chipotle has announced that it will raise its prices for the first time in three years. The exact numbers aren't in yet, but in the past executives have said they would raise them by three to five percent, which comes out to around $.25 to $.50 per $8 burrito bowl. The new, more expensive menus will start rolling out in the next few weeks, and will be in every restaurant by summer. [~EN~]
