This week's top dish from Eater, Curbed's restaurant, bar, and nightlife blog...
1) Greenwich Village: Ladies and gentlemen, you're looking at the most exclusive new restaurant table in New York. Welcome to the wild world of instant celebrity hot spot The Lion. Think you have what it takes to make it inside? Do you care?
2) Lower East Side: Looks like the Bowery has rubbed off on restaurateur Keith McNally. He ain't takin' no shit from nobody, and that includes restaurant critic Adam Platt, whom McNally just savaged following a bad review of his new pizzeria Pulino's. Meow!
3) West Village: Shuttered 55-year-old restaurant The Pink Tea Cup will reopen on June 2 around the corner from its old home and under new management. Tea Cup 2.0 will be at 88 Seventh Avenue South.
