This week's top dish from Eater, Curbed's restaurant, bar, and nightlife blog...
1) West Village: Hey Villagers, why don't you tell us how you really feel about shuttered hipster cave Beatrice Inn? Oh, there's more?
2) Lower East Side: The Seward Park co-op was badly burned by Isabella's Oven, the previous tenant in the space at 365 Grand Street. Now, residents are divided about the proposed new tenant in the space, a bar from former Mo Pitkin's co-owner Jesse Hartman. How will he muffle noise from the bar's back yard? "Picture a Frank Lloyd Wright style wood beam structure with thick sound dampening glass."
3) East Village: Milk & Honey mastermind and expert mixologist Sasha Petraske will shutter his East Village coffee shop Mercury Dime in June, following a long and unsuccessful battle with neighbors over a beer and wine license. R.I.P.
4) Brunipocalypse: Who'll replace New York Times restaurant critic Frank Bruni when steps down from the post in August? Here are the longshots, the wildcards and the favorites.
