Velvet Lounge Shutters; A Gastro-Lounge in 'Empire District'

This week's top dish from Eater NY, Curbed's restaurant, bar, and nightlife blog...

1) Williamsburg: The Velvet Lounge was shuttered by the DOB because there was an illegal dwelling in the back of the bar.

2) Midtown: A new 'gastro-lounge' restaurant is opening in an area that the PR people actually call "The Empire District."

3) Brooklyn Heights: Chef/restauranteur Saul Bolton opens a new Italian spot called Red Gravy.

4) New York City: Dozens of restaurants are still shuttered because of Hurricane Sandy.
