Myo Moe, the chef behind the Rangoon NoodleLab pop-up, is creating a permanent menu for The Bodega in Bushwick, where she’s been hosting her Wednesday night-only meals since April. Starting tomorrow night, Moe will be serving a menu of that will likely include things like dumplings, Vietnamese sandwiches, buns, kimchi, Thai-style papaya salads, and ramen. Eater senior critic Robert Sietsema is a big fan of Moe’s work at the Rangoon NoodleLab. Back in July, Sietsema wrote: "[E]very dish I’ve tried there has been interesting at the very least. And I found myself counting the days till the next Wednesday, when I’d see what new tweaks had been accomplished on what had become old favorites."

Christopher Kronner, the chef behind Oakland’s wildly popular Kronnerburger, is returning to New York this week for a few guest stints. At Achilles Heel in Greenpoint this evening, Kronner will be serving burgers and patty melts from 5 p.m. till they’re gone. And on Thursday, October 27, he’ll be cooking Kronnerburgers and a few other specials at GG’s from 5 p.m. till midnight. The East Village restaurant will also serve a special "GG X KB" pizza that night topped with beef, cheese curds, and marrow vinaigrette. Both dinners are first-come, first-served.

Jack’s Wife Freda is getting a spinoff inside of a new retail complex coming to 375 Broadway in Soho called Bio. This new iteration of the popular all-day restaurant will have cafe seating and a bar. The Rockwell Group is designing the market, which will feature over 30 vendors. It’s slated to open in early 2017.

— The annual scourge known as SantaCon will kick off in Williamsburg this year on December 10. If you live in the area and have a low tolerance for braying, costumed bros stumbling around drunk, now would be a great time to start making plans outside the neighborhood that weekend.

— And speaking of Williamsburg: Here is a look at the street style on display at the neighborhood’s shiny new Whole Foods store.

The people behind Sigmund Pretzels announce that they have indeed closed their Avenue B restaurant for good. The team still operates a stand inside Urbanspace Vanderbilt in Midtown.

The owners of The Penny Farthing and Linen Hall are planning to open a new tavern in the old Rodeo Bar space at 375 Third Ave by the end of the year. The layout will be roughly the same as the old honky tonk-themed bar, but this new project will be similar in spirit to its sister establishments in the East Village.

— Pete Wells and Scott Solish recently brought up an interesting question: Where does lifelong New Yorker Donald Trump eat, besides the shitty restaurants in his building?

After culling through responses from Twitter followers, Pete offered an update:

If you have any insights into where Trump eats outside of his gold-plated compound, please hit up the Eater Tipline.
