Khe-Yo lunch menu••• Congratulations to Nobu on celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. The press release says there will be a party on September 17 at Tribeca Rooftop: “In addition to the signature dishes and cocktails Nobu is known for, the September kick-off event invites friends and fans to experience the street fare of Chef Nobu’s youth and the inspiration behind many of his most famous creations with a traditional Japanese fall festival that will include a taiko drum performance and anniversary sake ceremony.” Also, “every Nobu location in the U.S. will offer a one-night Omakase menu on September 17 to celebrate alongside the Nobu flagship in Tribeca. Nobu’s ’20 Years in 20 Bites’ menu will feature five courses of four bites each—two existing menu items and two new items—together with 20th anniversary cocktails including the Matsuhisa 20.” It’s $120 per person.

••• “I am so happy to see the progress on the Canal Street House,” emailed M. Linda Thompson about 480 Greenwich/502 Canal. “I discovered the house while doing genealogy work on my mother’s family. They were Irish immigrants and lived in that house during the 1840s. My mother never knew where her great-grandparents came from or where they lived so I was overjoyed when I discovered the location. I visited the site in December 2013 and was dismayed at the condition but happy to see that renovation had begun. I hope that in some way the historical significance of the building can be preserved. People from all over the world lived there, and there are so many stories associated with the families who also lived in that building and I hope someone will pursue learning about them. Preserving the building is so important, but so is preserving the stories about the residents.”



  1. Quarry or quarrel? And what’s a Shawn Mendes? Also, teenage girls are insane.
