Seen & Heard: Church Street Roadblock

••• Hudson Street sure looks nice. I emailed the DDC to see what’s left of the reconstruction project and when it’ll be done.

Hudson StreetNMoore signs••• Judging from the signs posted outside Bubby’s, N. Moore is (finally!) getting fixed up this week. The bad news: It’s happening overnight. (No word on when Varick and W. Broadway are getting paved.)

••• “For the second night this week the NYPD has set up a roadblock/checkpoint on Church between Murray and Warren,” emails A. “Curious what is going on.” Indeed. Anyone know?

••• The salumeria counter at Da Claudio is branching out: “We have introduced organic farm products from the historic, family-owned Westwind Orchards in the Catskill Mountains.  Traditionally an apple orchard, Westwind now boasts a growing number of sustainable crops and a very creative kitchen. We are featuring raw honey, maple syrup, smoky tomato jam, apple raspberry jam, raspberry jam, and apple cider vinegar. You can purchase these at the counter, or you can taste them on Giuseppe’s beautiful antipasti plates and daily crostini.” I happened to go to Da Claudio last night; Claudio gave us a sneak-taste of a soon-to-be special, papardelle with sardines and tomatoes, that was really good.

••• Sole di Capri is on Instagram and Facebook—now we just need the restaurant to post a photo of its specials every day (which is a probably a good idea for all restaurants…).

••• The Butterfly gave up on weekday lunch. It’s still open for weekend brunch, though.

••• From Torly Kid: “Each year Torly Kid hosts a day of fun for Tribeca’s tween community. This year the festivities include our annual hula hoop contest, a mini cheer class with pom pom craft making, jump rope contest sponsored by ARC Athletics, music from Church Street School For Music and Art and creative balloon art by Illuminated Faces. Recommended for ages 7-14. But have no fear, little ones are welcome too!” It’s Saturday, May 9, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
