Seen & Heard: Restaurant Week

••• Restaurant Week is July 11–24 (lunch $20.07, dinner $35). I filtered for Tribeca restaurants (the top two images) and FiDi ones (the bottom one); click to make ’em big. Menus for all the participating restaurants are here. Bread Tribeca tweeted that it has a $25 prix fixe menu but it doesn’t seem to be an official participant in the promotion.

••• Starting Monday, Stuzzicheria will sell takeaway sandwiches: meatball/fontina, sausage/peppers, and something called Italiano/arugula.

••• A sign on the Pier 25 snack bar—to be called the Sweet Love Snack Bar, as it was in the old days—said it’ll open in the next couple of weeks. Or it may have been the next few weeks. I didn’t have my camera because I was jogging—a shame, because I really wanted a photo of the woman on the boardwalk playing her very long didgeridoo—and anyway since we don’t know when the sign was posted, it’s not that helpful. An email to Manhattan Youth has yet to be returned. The snack bar is at least a month from opening—permit problems etc.—but mini-golf and beach volleyball are open 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily (weather permitting).

••• FB Gallery—where Brazilian street artist Zéh Pelito is currently showing—is now open Wednesday–Friday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. (368 Broadway, #211).

••• “Back by popular demand, Housing Works wants you to BUY THE BAG! You give us $25 and we will give you a bag to fill up with clothes, accessories and everything in between”—sounds kind of fun—”from our amazing warehouse in Long Island City.” Oh. Well, you can take the ferry…. Info here.
