Astoria: Don’t be shy about visiting the newly opened Vue Cafe at 12-14 31st Avenue; “the space is intimate and an upscale touch is felt but not so much that you’d feel awkward dressed in comfortable garb.” [Joey in Astoria]
Midtown East: The idea for the popular crispy rabbit served at the bar at Mia Dona “with potato chips made from pickled potatoes and cucumber remoulade” came to Michael Psilakis while he pondered the ultimate bar food, chicken wings. [Bottomless Dish/Citysearch]
Midtown West: The Muse Hotel is hosting a cocktail mix-off this Thursday, and the winning team wins a cocktail party for ten at Silverleaf Tavern. [Zagat Buzz]
Williamsburg: Bonita makes a good version of tres leches, but they add chocolate. [Gridskipper]
West Village: Bobo has done well in selecting its new chefs after Nicholas Cantrel’s departure; Jared Stafford-Hill of Hearth and Rick Jakobsen from Red Hook’s 360 have found their groove. [Gastro Chic] Tasca may be doomed to close and be annexed to the restaurant opening next door, Sheridan Square. [Eater]
