Harlem: A benefit on Father’s Day called Real Men Cook will host “celebrity cooks and tasters” and include plenty of food. [Uptown Flavor]
Upper West Side: The Aix space will have a new design and serve “seasonal American small plates and shareable entrées in the Stanton Social–style of eating.” [Strong Buzz]
