The Rosé Mansion will return
Last year’s fine-tuned Instagram bait known as the Rosé Mansion will be back this summer in time for prime rosé season. The “interactive wine mansion” will debut in a new home in the Manhattan Mall at 111 West 32nd St. and will more than double the size of the 14-room original, which included a dash of educational information like rooms highlighting the process of making rosé and its most popular regions. Tickets are $35 to go before 5 p.m. on weekdays and $45 for all other times. Tickets include eight wine tastings, a Rosé Mansion pin, and a Govino wine glass. Additional food, wine, and private cabanas are for sale, and the space opens up for business on June 1.
A fire breaks out in Brooklyn
A fire tore through a medical office and sushi restaurant in the Marine Park neighborhood of Brooklyn before 6:30 a.m. this morning. The restaurant, E Sushi, serves an all-you-can-eat sushi menu as well as a la carte items. A firefighter was treated on the scene, but no other injuries have been reported so far. A call to the restaurant went unanswered.
Matzo documentary lands at PBS
The iconic Lower East Side matzo emporium Strait’s Matzo shuttered after nearly a century in 2015 in the midst of the production of a documentary about its legacy called Matzo and the American Dream. That doc was still completed and had a brief run at Film Forum in 2016, and now it’s set to reach a much wider audience. PBS announced that it has picked up the film and plans to broadcast it in conjunction with Passover for the rest of the month and into early May. The network signed a multi-year deal for the film.
