Select morsels from Eater, the SLNY/Curbed restaurant blog...
1) Attention holiday shoppers: a special Eater correspondent offers a two-part gift guide for that NYC eater in your life, from a trio of flavored 10-year-old balsamicos by Il Buco ($185) to Shake Shack gift cards.
2) On the plywood front: Graydon Carter invests in a new West Village restaurant (as Keith McNally eyes the same block for a new Italian restaurant); Avenue B looks like it's getting a new Brazilian steakhouse; and the East Village loses its Miracle Grill.
3) After weeks of hype, the Del Posto train left the station. Booking passage: Juli B, Chowhounders, and bloggers.
