Seen & Heard: Tribecahampton

••• Tribeca is popping up in two East Hampton spots. Espasso has a show of Carlos Motta and Etel Carmona furniture (if I ever win the lottery…) at the Steven Alan shop there, and R 20th Century merch will be at Turpan Gallery. And people say Tribeca is becoming bourgeois!

••• Don’t forget that our neighbors at Sora Lella, on Spring, are offering Tribeca Citizen readers a free bottle of wine with dinner. The details are here.

••• Tomorrow Farinella begins opening at 7 a.m. to serve breakfast—cornetti, brioche, etc….

••• Kiva Cafe is now making smoothies—banana and strawberry (and milk or orange juice), and banana and peanut butter—and also sangria, if that’s more your style. On June 10, Kiva celebrates its exhibit of paintings by Jacquie Hann (they’re up now, so stop in and take a look).

••• Torly Kid‘s Hula Hoop contest is Saturday at 10:30 a.m. There are several categories and age groups, and winners get a $10 gift certificate. Plus: a lemonade stand with proceeds going to the World Wildlife Fund.

••• Maslow 6, which is having its first anniversary this month (cheers to that!), has announced a wine club: “We include tasting notes (of course), interesting tidbits about the wines (fun), food pairing suggestions, and a recipe (helpful). But what makes us really different is getting to taste the wines every month at a members-only event. Mollie Battenhouse, Advanced Sommelier, holder of the Wine & Spirits Education Trust Diploma, and in possession of arguably one of the best palates in the industry, will share some of her vast knowledge, focusing on the monthly selections. And, if for any reason you don’t like one of the wines when you taste it at the event, you’ll be able to choose something else instead. […] There are 3 price point options ($200, $300, and $400) and 2 options for delivery frequency (once a month or once every other month).”

  1. Prompted by these posts, we went to Sora Lella last night with friends and had a very nice evening – on the early side so it was pretty empty. Nice service, great space, definitely authentic Roman vibe in food and staff. Pasta dishes in particular were excellent (some of the other choices disappointed a bit). And yes: free wine. I forgot the print-out of the page at home so just brought it up on my iPhone and showed it to the hostess and we were all set.

    Maybe I should also point out that we went to Terroir Tribeca beforehand, during what turned out to be happy hour (5-6) when sherry is free. Yes, totally free. I had three glasses and a friend had another. Everyone else ordered wine and snacks so we weren’t totally freeloading. If you like sherry, as I do, it is a truly great deal. I can’t believe it will last.
