1.) Meatpacking District: The crazypants dining destination du jour is the ballsy new Spanish restaurant that opened this week at the Downtown Dream Hotel. Romera has a $245 tasting menu that serves longwinded menu cards before each course.
2.) Chelsea: This Sunday will be the last day for The Lot On Tap, the Tom Colicchio-affiliated food truck parking lot/beer garden under The High Line, meaning no Oktoberfest for those of you getting creative with fall beer-drinking ideas again.
3.) Far Rockaway: Knocking on the door of Rockaway holdout The Tap & Grill, the "last vestige of a former, more joyous Rockaway Beach" and the area's oldest clam bar.
