The Weekly Roundup: Dry Aged Burgers Rock, Crumbs not Crumbled and Ample Hills Takes Over Gowanus

  • Crif Dogs, the Newest Frank Shop in the West Village: Brian Shebairo and Isaac Joseph opened the third location of their frankfurter-centric Crif Dogs Sunday in the West Village. The shop is carrying on the hot dog tradition for 120 Mcdougal St., which most recently housed the short-lived Dogmatic.

Babel Fair is the center of world fashion. They carry international labels and styles--there is truly a global assortment: from Japanese denim to Argentinean leather, they have it all!

Now, he wants to brew it for the residents of the Lower East Side and Chinatown in a new brewpub planned for 116 Madison St., just west of the Manhattan Bridge.

  • New Amsterdam Market Has Come to an End: New Amsterdam Market, the long-running outdoor food market at South Street Seaport, has come to an end after nine years. In a note to supporters, founder Robert LaValva writes: "I was never able to raise the funding or attract the influential backers needed for our organization to thrive.
  • Rodeo Bar Will Sing Its Final Song This Month: Rodeo Bar, aka "NYC's longest running honky-tonk," will say its cowboy's farewell on July 27th.
