This week's top dish from Eater, Curbed's restaurant, bar, and nightlife blog...
1) Midtown: Around 3,500 square feet of prime Empire State Building ground-floor space is being turned into a swanky Art Deco themed lounge called The Empire Room. Above, an early peek. Interesting!
2) East Village: Epic news from the haute pizza world! East Village sensation Una Pizza Napoletana appears to be out, with Williamsburg's Motorino in line to invade the 12th Street space and inherit the magical oven. The reason? Una Pizza's Anthony Mangieri may be heading to the West Coast. Mama mia!
3) Williamsburg: An Eater reader files an epic rant aiming to take down the living legend, Peter Luger. A big, beefy taste: "Living in Williamsburg, we decided it was high time to pay a visit to Peter Luger this week. THIS WAS THE WORST CHOICE WE HAVE EVER MADE IN OUR NEARLY THIRTY YEARS OF DINING HISTORY."
