This week's top dish from Eater, Curbed's restaurant, bar, and nightlife blog...
1) Plywood Report: In Williamsburg, the retractable roof venue that is to be called Radegast Hall & Biergarten is coming along nicely (renderings, above). Meantime, on Roosevelt Island, widespread rejoicing over the opening of a pizzeria. No, seriously.
2) Wakiya, the high-end ür-Chinese restaurant at Ian Schrager's Gramercy Park Hotel, is open for business. Click on through for illicit opening night photos from the interior and assorted hangover observations including, "When the reservationist said she needed your table back by 9:30, she was lying."
3) Think the battles over restaurant and bar liquor licenses in the LES and East Village are relegated to the past? Think again.
