This week's top dish from Eater NY, Curbed's restaurant, bar, and nightlife blog...
1) Midtown: Step inside 4Food, a massive new techie-inspired burger joint where the patties have donut holes for fixins, and Foursquare check-ins and tweets are displayed on big monitors for all to see. What, no robot cashiers?
2) Times Square: Theater District tourist trap Sardi's should be given the respect of a Peter Luger, right? If you believe in the "civilizing effect of a good banquette," then yes, it probably should.
3) Hell's Kitchen: A handful of Brooklyn restaurants have pulled off successful Manhattan expansions, and the latest one to try is Williamsburg's casual Peter's Since 1969. Good luck in Hell, Pete!
4) West Chelsea: The iconic Empire Diner on Tenth Avenue is set to reopen in September following its May shuttering and takeover by the team behind Union Square's models-and-meatloaf mainstay, Coffee Shop.
