Seen & Heard: Saleya’s Dinner Menu

art in general 2313cobblestones courtesy Art in General••• I was walking on Walker yesterday when the above exhibit at Art in General caught my eye. It’s called “Either Way, We Lose” and it’s by Anetta Mona Chişa and Lucia Tkáčová. When I went online to look that up, I learned that the artists have another exhibit in the gallery: “‘Clash!,’ a New Commission by Anetta Mona Chişa and Lucia Tkáčová, takes the form of an installation that imitates piles of stones usually found on streets or construction sites. Referencing stones that are often used by street demonstrators with the intention to harm, the stones’ potential role as impromptu weapons is here transformed by the use of material to create them. Fabricated over many days in porcelain, and hand-painted with acrylic paint to resemble the appearance of real stones, these objects are in fact very thin, eggshell-like and hollow inside, becoming precious and vulnerable objects that are uncanny and prop-like. Able to be touched by visitors to the gallery, the stones are open to potential damage or even destruction over the duration of the exhibition.” I want one so badly!

••• Behold the dinner menu and wine list at Saleya! It starts serving dinner tonight.

••• A phone number appeared on Peace & Love, next to the sign saying the place would reopen after three months, so I called to ask if the rumors that it wasn’t actually reopening were true. Alex said it is indeed reopening—although more likely in four months—that they’re going to update the decor and make some improvements to the menu.

••• DeRose Method‘s Tribeca studio at 55 Murray is open. Full report to come soon….

••• A friend tells me that American Flatbread Tribeca Hearth will slice your pizza in traditional triangles (vs. floppy rectangles), if you ask.

••• Another friend tells me that the Amish Market’s produce shelves were bare while the store’s ownership changed—and that the cashier said to expect big changes in the store’s appearance.

••• Pomme, the très chic kids’ store in Dumbo that had a Tribeca store on Duane (where Laughing Man is now) tweeted that it’s “crossing our fingers for news on a sunny, sweet space in Tribeca—please send us some good vibes!” Hmm… Could it be here?

••• Kutsher’s Tribeca is introducing Trunk Show Tuesdays. See below.
