••• “One restaurant closes, another one opens. Such is the circle of life at 33 Avenue of the Americas, the cursed space that has housed no less than three concepts in the last year and a half, most recently Terrance Brennan’s flop Bar Artisanal Restaurant & Tapas Bar. There were rumors of a Todd English takeover, but over the weekend a tipster spotted workers affixing the name for a new Mexican place, Pelea, to the bright red awning, with a sign in the window noting that an opening is slated for late October.” (Eater)

••• The New York Post visits the burlesque at Duane Park—and comes up with the worst lede in recent memory: “Breakfast may be the most important meal of the day, but dinner is clearly the most well rounded. Especially when that means the curves of a sexy burlesque performer shaking and bouncing just a few feet from the dinner table.”

••• DNAinfo gets more details on Pier 25, including this “The Hudson River Park Trust is deciding between three potential operators to run the mini-golf, beach volleyball courts and an adjacent snack bar. Depending on the weather in late October, the operator may decide not to launch some of those features until the spring, said Noreen Doyle, executive vice president of the trust. The spring will also bring historic boats, which will dock on the south side of the pier.”
