Seen & Heard: Hawksmoor Steakhouse Got Pushed Way Back

••• Nickel & Diner, the cute restaurant at Centre and Howard, finally got its liquor license.

••• Hawksmoor, the first New York outpost of a London steakhouse, was initially supposed to open at 3 World Trade Center by the end of this year. (And 2019 is presumably the best-case scenario….)

••• Opening September 26 at Untitled: “a debut solo exhibition of works by artist Fahren Feingold [….] Her watercolors featuring bold feminine nudes reference imagery from early 20 century French erotica, 70s & 80s American vintage magazines, and today’s Internet girls.”

••• Torly Kid‘s annual sidewalk chalk contest is tomorrow (Sunday), noon to 3 p.m.

••• I often wonder whether the Department of Transportation ever sends crews around to evaluate all the street signage. Or will this random sign on Park Row about Ann Street—it’s facing south, so only drivers heading away from Ann might see it—be there forever?

••• I suppose if I really wanted to know the answer to that question, I could attend the City Hall in Your Borough: City Resource Fair on September 27: “Meet with top city commissioners and senior staff during scheduled office hours to address your questions and concerns. Meet with top representatives from City Hall, Department of Transportation, Department of Finance, NYPD, Economic Development Corporation, Department of Education, Department of Health, Small Business Services, Department of Parks and Recreation, and more. Sign up here to attend or by calling 212-748-0281.” It’s in Washington Heights (the Malcolm X and Dr. Betty Shabazz Memorial and Educational Center at 3940 Broadway), which is about as far as you can get from here and still be in the borough of Manhattan.
