Seen & Heard: Le Pain Quotidien

••• Kevin Kline will be at 92YTribeca on July 20 for the preview screening of his new film, An Extra Man (not to be confused with A Single Man or A Serious Man).

••• Le Pain Quotidien has opened in Battery Park City, on River Terrace next to the Mercy Corps Action Center (just south of Teardrop Park South). The notable part is that the restaurant is selling prepackaged salads and sandwiches, and they seem to be a better deal than the normal takeout prices. (I didn’t check carefully though.) I asked if I could take a photo of the sandwiches and was told the request would have to “go through corporate,” so I said I’d just buy a sandwich and take it home and shoot it, but then I thought to hell with it. You’ll have to go see for yourself, or not. (I did get a kick out of overhearing a woman explain how the fencing around the outdoor tables was ill-suited to the character of the building. Some days I think I can actually feel downtown turning into the Upper West Side.)

••• Today’s deal on KGB Deals is $29 for a mani-pedi and 30 minutes of reflexology at Tribeca Spa of Tranquility. Offer expires in four days.

••• Today’s deal on LivingSocial Deals is $25 for a five-class yoga pass at New Field Yoga. Offer expires at 5 a.m.

••• Exciting news for the folks at BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center: The venue is one of the five nominees in the Best Theater Group for Kids category of the Third Annual Parents Picks Awards, presented by Nickelodeon’s (BMCCTPAC was also a finalist last year.) You can vote here every day through August 31.

••• We got two of our sidewalks back: the east side of West Broadway between Duane and Reade (below), and the east side of Hudson between Beach/Ericsson and Hubert (further below). The last photo is of the passive-recreation area (“park” seems a bit strong, no?) that really should be open too.
