This week's top dish from Eater, Curbed's restaurant, bar, and nightlife blog...
1) Gramercy: First Lady Michelle Obama lunched at Gramercy Tavern today. She ate a "light seasonal meal" made with local foods while everyone else who entered went through metal detectors. She left via the front door, to wide applause.
2) West Village: Soon to open Scottish gastropub Highlands recently took delivery of its stuffed deer head, in case you need more atmosphere while eating your haggis.
3) Red Hook: Fort Defiance? Oh, you must be looking for Fort Compliance! The new bar/cafe/restaurant has reopened after being closed by the health department for two weeks. Turns out it was in compliance with health codes the whole time.
