1) This week's main event: Frank Bruni v. Keith McNally. On the heels of Bruni's one-star review of Morandi, McNally broke out the sharp knives, claiming that Bruni gives female chefs short shrift. It ain't so, say the Bruni-backers.
2) In case you missed it, the David Chang empire is in flux. Coming soon: Momofuku Ko. On the move: Momofuku Noodle Bar.
3) The team behind Spotted Pig has fall plans for a "casual yet elegant English-inspired oyster bar/seafood resto" on 10th Ave., down the street from their hand-holding partners, Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich.
4) Friends, brace yourselves for Vegas-style burlesque in Nolita.
