This week's top dish from Eater, Curbed's restaurant, bar, and nightlife blog...
1) Greenwich Village: According to Community Board 2's November agenda, ll Buco is opening a second restaurant at 53 Great Jones Street. The folks at the restaurant hint that the new space will be similar to the original "but much bigger." Additional solid details will have to wait for CB2's get-together next month, but in the meantime, theorize away!
2) East Village: Turns out hated nightclub Le Souk wasn't quite done even after it had its liquor license revoked. The Avenue B spot got the party started over the weekend and got the neighbors whining again. It seems to have closed Wednesday, but will it make a vampiric return from the dead in honor of Halloween?
3) Gramercy/Flatiron: Rumor has it that restauranteur Danny Meyer is looking to open a restaurant in the former church space on 21st Street and Park Avenue South. Apparently, Meyer is not the only one interested in the space, but those in the know aren't talking.
