I’m not really that big on traditional ‘bacon & egg’ brunches, but when a friend mentioned that JoeDoe (45 East 1st Street between 1st & 2nd Avenues) served duck eggs & not your typical bacon, I jumped at the chance to check it out.

The Department of Health has continued their ‘onslaught’ of the East Village & shuttered Pueroto Rican mainstay Casa Adela (66 Avenue C near 5th Street) two days ago. As the sign indicates, the fridges were not at the proper temperature. Hopefully they’ll sort this out soon & return to do what they do best; serving up amazing rotisserie chicken & rice & beans!

6th Street Kitchen (507 East 6th Street between Avenue A & B) has unvieled their fall dinner menu (click picture to enlarge) & it’s looking pretty damn tasty! I’ve reviewed them berore (here) & have had nothing but good things to say about my dining experience there.
Also noteworthy is that they will be hosting a 7 course tasting preview of the fall menu tomorrow at 7pm. Further coverage here.
Arcane, the French-Caribbean restaurant (111 Avenue C at 7th Street) is celebrating it’s second birthday today. I just passed by & it looked pretty packed, with party-goers sharing the sidewalk with people drinking at Zum Schneider next door.
