••• Chef Bill Telepan of the Upper West Side’s Telepan is opening a “pop-up restaurant” in Tribeca: “For four weeks, Wednesdays through Fridays only, the man known to certain Greenmarket farmers as ‘Lord Telepan’ for his pioneering locavorism will cook a $45 four-course prix fixe, featuring three amuses-bouches, an appetizer, a choice of meat or fish, and dessert (wine and beer extra). No reservations are accepted, and parties are seated from 6:30 to 10 p.m.” The fun starts Apr. 27. Where, you ask? Pécan. Or maybe they’ll rename it Telepécan.

••• The Bloomberg administration wants to sell buildings: “But there are nearly a dozen candidates in the vicinity of City Hall, which borders Tribeca, where buildings have been converted to include condo and co-op units selling for over $1 million. At 125 Worth St., the Health Department has moved most of its operations to Long Island City in Queens, although other city agencies remain. The building is valued at $41.6 million in the latest assessment roll. Other structures nearby valued at $40 million or more include 2 Lafayette St. and 346 Broadway. Woody Heller, an office-building expert at real-estate services firm Studley, predicted that the city wouldn’t have much trouble finding buyers. “‘Older, prewar buildings lend themselves to residential conversion.'” And the drumbeat for schools starts now.

••• The New York Times has an article about that evangelical church that wants to “plant” itself here: “Trinity Grace considers all sex outside marriage sinful, and marriage as a union between a man and a woman. [Pastor Guy] Wasko said that he had kissed three women before marrying his wife, and that he now regretted all of them.” Where to start?
