Propose With A Cronut; Some Chefs Consider Going Tip-Free

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

1) Soho & Beyond: One man stalled proposing to his girlfriend because he wanted to slip the engagement ring inside a cronut... and couldn't get one. And the mania over that hybrid pastry continues.

2) Terrible Restaurants Everywhere: Robert Sietsema maps his least-favorite eateries, a.k.a. his personal catalog of culinary crimes.

3) Williamsburg: The opening of The Elm marks the first time ever a chef with two Michelin stars has launched a sit-down restaurant in Brooklyn. So let's welcome Paul Liebrandt's newest to the space below the King & Grove.

4) Citywide: Danny Meyer, Tom Colicchio, and David Chang (among others) are debating going tip-free. But then they'd have to raise prices to cover service without pissing off customers. That's gonna be hard.

5) Midtown: New York has one ice bar, it's called Minus 5 (the degree to which the thermostat is set, a.k.a. 23 degrees Fahrenheit), and Minus 5 has a model of the Brooklyn Bridge carved out of, you guessed it, ice. Now go about your day.
