More of this week's dining dish from the SLNY/Curbed NYC restaurant blog Eater...
1) The battle has been joined in NoMeat stadium, where Iron Chef Morimoto has ripped the plywood off his eponymous restaurant across the street from Iron Chef Batali's Del Posto. This week's secret ingredient is clogs. Mmmm.
2) Top secret new VIP lounge at The Hotel on Rivington: "Behind a nondescript door next to the hotel is a narrow tunnel leading to a small lounge with walls covered in giant white pebbles and masses of Swarovski crystals underneath a glass-top bar." Tell them Marcel from the Netherlands sent you.
3) More secrets: The mysterious no-name cookie shop in the East Village, the one that makes cookies that bear a striking resemblance to those of City Bakery, is in fact a City Bakery operation.
