Seen & Heard: Chambers Construction Casualty

Quiznos••• A sign in the window at the Quizno’s on Chambers says that the restaurant (right word?) will be closed due to the construction until March 10. I’m not sure they can realistically hope the work will be done by then….

••• No Brookfield Place food trucks until “at least Friday.”

••• Thank you to the folks at Grown & Sewn: I bought two pairs of pants from their very good sale (online and instore) and I needed to exchange one, and I managed to go back and get the wrong size twice (my fault both times!). They were kind.

••• Have you noticed that you can now reply to specific comments (instead of doing the “@commenter” thing)? Working on a bunch of other improvements…. Stay tuned…. As always, feel free to make suggestions:

••• From NotifyNYC: “There will be a fireworks display in New York Harbor tonight east of Liberty Island. The display will begin at approximately 8:40 p.m. In case of inclement weather, the display will be postponed until 1/28/14 at 8:40 p.m.”

••• A few Super Bowl specials have come in:

Los Americanos: Peruvian BBQ wings served with lime crème & cubano sandwiches (to go and delivery). Package $95: 6 sandwiches and 50 wings.
American Flatbread Tribeca Hearth: Any three large flatbreads, nine large turkey meatballs in marinara, Evolution salad for eight people ($75, in-house , delivery, or pick-up); there’s also a 20-person option for $199.
North End Grill (see below).

  1. The fireworks last night were truly spectacular. Were they related to the Super Bowl or something else? Don’t really care, they were so beautiful…..
