— An all-out brawl broke out this past Sunday night at The DL (95 Delancey Street). A video released by the NYPD shows a group of women violently fighting. This isn’t the first recent fight outside the rowdy bar, Bowery Boogie notes — a similar altercation occurred just one year ago. Seventh Precinct commanding officer deputy inspector Steven Hellman told BB, “The DL does not have the best interests of the community [in mind],” and that it is now a priority.

— If peeking into New Yorkers’ apartments is your thing, then you’re definitely going to want to check out the new home of Le Pain Quotidien CEO Doug Satzman. It’s on the Upper West Side, and it was $3 million. Keep buying those $19 avocado toasts, folks.

— A restaurant named Bar Uni has fully opened in Greenpoint (674 Manhattan Avenue) after a three-month-long “soft open,” except for a place that advertises sea urchin in its name, there isn’t a whole lot of it on the menu.

— Skiers know that there’s no greater way to end a run than with a liege waffle (besides booze, of course). Waffle Cabin is bringing that concept to NYC, with a location opening at 427 Seventh Avenue. Look for it to arrive this spring.

— Lower Manhattan now has yet another poke shop with the opening of Raw Mkt at 61 East 8th Street. The menu has bowls, hand rolls, acai and more.

— Satire publication The Onion nails it once again, with a headline that’s just too real: “Closed Shop In Gentrifying Neighborhood To Emerge From Chrysalis As Beautiful Gastropub.”

— Some upcoming food events to watch out for: Miami chef Richard Hales is cooking his popular hot chicken on May 6 and May 7 at both the Smorgasburg Williamsburg and Prospect Park locations; Devocion is handing out free coffee on on Saturday, April 29 from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. to preview the opening 33 Bond (442 Atlantic Avenue); and Lidia Bastianich’s Felidia is hosting a $245 per person zero waste dinner (with wine) on Wednesday, April 26 at 6:30 p.m., where leftovers and waste are recycled into new, creative dishes.
