LONG ISLAND CITY — The M. Wells team quietly opened a small wine and beer bar on the roof of MoMA's PS1 for the summer. Drinks are sold from a cart in the space which doubles as a vegetable and herb garden for Dinette downstairs. The garden, which provides guests with a view of Manhattan and Queens, is open during normal museum hours but closed during the museum's Warm Up Saturdays. [Tastoria via Q'stoner]

WOMEN IN FOOD — This October, almost a year after Time's "Gods of Food" article and the shitstorm that followed it, Food & Wine, which is also owned with Time, Inc. will release a list called the "Most Powerful Women: The Food & Drink Innovators." The list, which will be put together by F&W, along with Fortune, will be made up of "25 women across various industries who have played key roles in redefining how we think about food." [~EN~]
