This week’s top dish from Eater NY, Curbed’s restaurant, bar, and nightlife blog…


[How new Greenwich Village mind explosion Rockography greets the neighborhood.]

1) Soho: Pop-up restaurant/art project What Happens When has been open for a month, and now the community board wants to yank its liquor license because, among other reasons, pop-ups don’t lay down roots in the neighborhood.

3) Noho: Fans of big neon sombreros, brace yourself. After what sounded like the certain demise of Broadway Mexican restaurant Gonzalez y Gonzalez, it now looks like the restaurant will be staying, albeit in a smaller space.

4) Hottieville: New York’s best looking people: Where do they eat? Finally, a map that answers this age-old question.
