Metrograph arthouse cinema rendering courtesy Metrograph••• Update on that new Lower East Side cinema: “Scheduled to open Feb. 19, the Metrograph, at Ludlow and Canal streets, will offer two screens and art-house programming—with digital and 35mm projection in both theaters [which] will seat 170 and 50 people, with respective screens of 30 and 20 feet in width.” There will also be an in-house bar”—as opposed to an outhouse bar?—”two-story restaurant and a bookstore that will carry film-related titles.” —Wall Street Journal

••• “Michael White and Ahmass Fakahany […] are closing their Soho steakhouse Costata.” —Eater

••• “A woman walking near the Brooklyn Bridge [Dover and Pearl] had her iPhone snatched from her hands last week.” It was 9:45 p.m. on Wednesday. —DNAinfo

••• “Chris Reda, owner of Gansevoort Market in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District, said he plans to open food halls in lower Manhattan and the Bronx’s Grand Concourse neighborhood.” No clue if Lower Manhattan means near us; my guess would be Hudson Square. —Wall Street Journal

••• “The two sexy brunettes who allegedly set a honey pot trap for Knicks forward Derrick Williams—in which they stole $750,000 in jewelry from his Manhattan apartment—were caught on video at a Meatpacking District nightclub shortly before the heist, police said Wednesday.” Besides the surveillance footage, the New York Post also ran a pic of Williams’s building, which is in Soho, not Tribeca as it seems to think. Also, the phrase is “honey trap” or “honeypot.”
