This week's top dish from Eater, Curbed's restaurant, bar, and nightlife blog...
1) Ladies and gentlemen, please take a moment to get acquainted with the brand new design of our lil' sis, Eater. Nice, ain't she? That's not the only huge change over in the Eaterverse. Launching today is Eater National, guiding you in the ways of celebrity chefs, under-the-radar up-and-comers, major restaurant news and other fun things. First order of business: $25 to every food blogger wiling to quit the biz.
2) Meanwhile, back in NYC, we direct your attention to the Eater 38, the ultimate answer to, "Where should I eat tonight?" This essential list is about five years in the making, so treat it right.
3) Oh lordy, The Standard. Sweet sweet Standard. Remember when we got a look at the under-construction 18th floor hot tub room? Well, the space is pretty much all finished now, and here's the epic reveal (preview above). And what's this? The Boom Boom Room name might get dropped? André, say it ain't so!
