Thought we needed a thread on places we walk by, places we hear about, places we want feedback on without starting a thread about it (yet)...   So last night we walked by Lure Fishbar. I love the l

Walked by that newish place Turquoise on E. 81. Nice fish menu - lots of whole fish, and meditarannean stuff. Not wacky expensive, believe it or not. If they do all the fish well, might be nice. N

I went a few months ago. I liked the wings; the potato mochi are good if you don't mind the typical mochi texture. They're served with a sweetish sauce and lots of butter. The place really is small

An "ultra low-fat" donut place is opening in the west village.

 

New Yorkers also will pay less for Holey Donuts. They cost around $85 for 18 donuts to ship by FedEx and will cost just under $3.50 apiece — or around $63 — in the store.

 

Jesus Christ.

 

To put that into perspective I just looked up what they're charging at Dunkin Donuts. $9 for a dozen.

 

Those Holey donuts must be really swell.

A cronut is $5. Not sayin' these are as good as cronuts, but it gives a benchmark for what people'll pay for a premium product.

An answer to Wilfrid's prayers.

Did they get a special dispensation from DoH?

 

What is this "speciality coffee roaster"? Even if they did steal the content from Sprudge, whatever the hell that is, you'd think Vox could spring from someone to check and correct spelling.

 

Then again, why should they care?

Has anyone tried Underfinger (153 Division St., Chinatown)? This review on Immaculate Infatuation reads like an April Fool's joke:

I have no idea why it took us this long to make it to Underfinger (they’ve been open for eleven days), but we finally had dinner here over the weekend. All we can say is that you’ve never seen anything like this before, and yet it feels so familiar. Here’s the story.

The chef at Underfinger, Jesper Paulsen, grew in Copenhagen just a few miles from Noma, and has eaten there several times. He’s taken that training and applied to the Scandinavian tradition of serving minimalist finger sandwiches at funerals. The end result is one of the city’s most impressive tasting menus, a somber celebration of “farm-to-finger” ingredients and classic Neo-Nordic techniques.

If you’re having trouble picturing what that might look like, you aren’t alone. Underfinger has a strict no photography policy, which might explain the lack of Instagrams, or “first looks” or “10 Reasons Why This Place Will Make You Want to Nom” coverage since they initially applied for a liquor license back in 2012. Paulsen believes very strongly in the idea of secrecy, likely a result of his years spent in the Danish army.


ETA: Pete Wells tweeted that, and a short while later, tweeted that it IS indeed a joke. There's no such restaurant.

I find this very, very interesting:

 

CLAUDETTE Provençal with a whiff of North Africa is the approach taken by the chef, Koren Grieveson, formerly of Avec in Chicago. The restaurant is the third for Carlos Suarez, who owns Bobo and Rosemary’s nearby, this time with a partner, Mark Barak. The space is adorned with hand-painted tile work. (Sunday): 24 East Ninth Street, 212-868-2424, claudettenyc.com.

I mean, Koren Grieveson!
