••• “Paige Management (the team behind the Ainsworth) has turned classic financial district drinkery* Blarney Stone into the Fulton. The 4,300-square-foot gastropub opens tomorrow [Saturday, Oct. 8], with a sprawling menu of small plates by chef John Bond (STK Miami), including everything from turkey to lobster sliders; a chicken club in both salad and sandwich form; and classic entrees such as steak-frites.” There’s a slide show that leans heavily on the banquettes. —Grub Street (*Let’s not use this word again.)

••• “The thousands of 9/11 Memorial tourists who pour into lower Manhattan each day are clogging the sidewalks, overcrowding public restrooms and inconveniencing residents, dozens of locals said this week. [Re: the trash all over:] The city removed the area’s trash cans before the 9/11 Memorial opened because they were considered a safety hazard.” —DNAinfo

••• “A well-dressed bank robber dubbed the ‘Dapper Bandit’ struck for the second time in Manhattan on Friday, the FBI said.The debonair crook robbed a Capital One branch at 277 Broadway [at Chambers], after knocking over another Capital One location on West 57th Street on Sept. 21.” —DNAinfo

••• The New York Times reviews the James hotel. The writer stayed there “earlier this year” (?).

  1. Walked by The Fulton late Sunday afternoon. The place was packed. No food on any of the tables, just beer everywhere. Looks like it’s going to be just another drinking place.
