Another 20-something gets drunkenly locked in a bar overnight

Marshall Stack Bar on Rivington Street was home Thursday night to a 23-year-old grad student who got locked in overnight. The unnamed guy told the Post that he fell asleep in the bathroom after a 12-hour workday, and woke up at 7 a.m. on Friday morning to find himself trapped. The sleepy bargoer called 911, and firefighters had to let him out. This is the second time in recent months that someone got locked in a Lower East Side bar; the same thing happened to an underage woman back in July.

Netflix adds sweet smell to NYC bus stops to promote show release

To promote the release of Chef’s Table: Pastry — which features Milk Bar’s Christina Tosi and others — Netflix has branded two bus stops with ads for the show. But the ads go one step further, releasing a sweet smell every five minutes at the bus stops on Columbus Avenue between 88th and 89th streets and on 14th Street between First and Second avenues. The scent will continue through May 6, though those who smell it will have to venture to the nearest Milk Bar to satisfy any cravings.

Openings, closings, and coming attractions

The owners of Do Hwa in the West Village area adding a Korean restaurant to Park Slope. Haenyeo will focus on seafood from Jeju island off South Korea at 239 Fifth Ave. At 44 Bowery, a slim Japanese restaurant with sushi, sake, and matcha called Shinsen has opened, while at 319 East 14th St., Champion Coffee will open an outpost on Wednesday. The owner of Raku and Kura has applied to take over two more East Village spaces at 117 Avenue A and 304 East Sixth St., though there’s not much info yet on the concepts, just that they will be “new age American.” Finally, East Village bakery Bakeri will close at the end of the month; owners did not provide a reason for the closure.

Lobster Club starts breakfast tomorrow

Midtown Japanese restaurant The Lobster Club has started breakfast, geared toward the business set. Breakfast is decidedly more American than the lunch and dinner menus — see the menu in full below, which pulls from Major Food Group’s Jewish restaurant Sadelle’s — though there is a bento with a shiitake scramble, teriyaki salmon, rice, pea greens, and miso soup. Prices are still being decided today for the launch tomorrow, but will be similar to the cost of dining at Sadelle’s.
