The Weekly Roundup: NYC Chef's Skip Town, A 157 Year Old Foundry in Greenwich Village and a Garden Grows in Columbus Park

  • THE 12 BEST NYC RESTAURANT OPENINGS FROM JULY: Since you've probably spent the first half of Summer lounging around on beaches and rooftops instead of slavishly tracking the best July restaurant openings in NYC, we’ve put together a cheat sheet to help get you up to speed.
  • Chefs Move Beyond New York: Traditionally, chefs trained in New York and then stayed, with the goal of running big kitchens or opening their own places.  No more. Smaller cities are increasingly attractive for New York chefs; there, they find savvy audiences who support innovative restaurants. 



  • Why The Heck Does Carbone's Caesar Salad Cost $21?: "It's hardly a salad," said Eater's Nick Solares when I asked him about the Caesar at Carbone, a Greenwich Village hotspot that tips its hat to the Italian-American chophouses of yesteryear, giant portions, tuxedoed waiters and all.
  • Perla’s New Burger: As of this past Tuesday, Perla has a new burger, offered from 5:30 to 7 p.m. — or until it runs out…for only $15! 

  • Google Searches Out Space in Its Own Building: Google appears poised to jump on the $2 billion worth of Manhattan real estate it bought almost four years ago.  The Internet search giant will be able to move into as much as 500,000 square feet of office space at 111 Eighth Ave.—the almost three million-square-foot office building it bought in 2010 as its New York headquarters—by the first quarter of next year
  • Pastis Likely Won't Reopen in Its Original Home: It looks like Keith McNally's Pastis won't be moving back into its original location in the heart of the Meatpacking District after all. 

  • Garden Grows Fresh Veggies in Columbus Park: A new garden is growing in Columbus Park.  The Charles B. Wang Community Health Center began tilling the freshly carved-out green space this spring, and now the butterfly garden and planters are in full bloom. A miniature greenhouse, just big enough to reach inside to water the plants, is filled with growing tomatoes, strawberries and cucumbers.
