[Orchard Street newcomer The Orchard opens its doors this weekend.]
This week's goodness from Eater, the SLNY/Curbed restaurant blog...
1) The winter restaurant opening season heats up: on the Lower East Side, Matthew Kenney's Heirloom opens its doors, as does Park Avenue South Greek newcomer Barbounia, among others.
2) Plywood a-plenty, including a first look at The Orchard and the Avroko-designed interior at European Union in the East Village.
3) The call is made for the Banned on Chowhound list; a Park Slope victim is confirmed.
