In the News: Brookfield Place Tapas Restaurant

••• Regarding 49-51 Chambers, one of the three buildings the city recently sold (in this case, to the Chetrit Group): “‘The 14-story Beaux-Arts building will offer a mix of one- to four-bedrooms.'” 2) Sales will launch in fall 2014.” —Curbed

••• Bon Appétit gets some background on how the Grand Banks raw bar on a ship at Pier 25 came to happen. Also: “After it makes its way to NYC, the Zwicker has a date with a dock in Brooklyn to get fitted out with the restaurant and bar equipment it’ll need to serve oysters, small sides (charcuterie from Firth’s farm, salads, possibly french fries), and drinks. The plan is to sail the boat into its summer berth in Tribeca by June 1st, open it to the public by the 15th, and stay open until the end of October—the lease at the pier will be up for review at the end of the season, so it’s anyone’s guess where it might go next.”

••• The New York Post police blotter includes thefts at Westville, Jack Spade, Battery Park, Soho Mews deli (?), and the New York Health and Racquet Club.

••• “Jose Garces has announced that he’ll open an outpost of his Spanish tapas restaurant, Amada, in Brookfield Place […] his third after the Philly original and an outpost in Atlantic City. Expect an all day restaurant with traditional tapas, as well as soups and sandwiches for lunch, and the option of a tapas tasting menu for dinner.” —Eater

••• Jersey City will hold a July 4 fireworks show in Liberty State Park, which means parts of Lower Manhattan will have a good view of it. —New York Times
