More of this week's goodness from Curbed/SLNY restaurant blog Eater...
1) Secret bar alert: Accessible only via Crifdogs. Code name: PDT. Crifdogs and lobster rolls will be served.
2) It's true. Johnny Utah's will have a mechanical bull.
3) Buyback Project: A bartender gives up the goods. Rule #7: "If you know your bartenders name - NEVER shout it; catch their eye." More Buyback: The good guys.
4) Looks like curtains for the venerable Brasserie La Côte Basque.
