New York School Coming to East Village; Financial District Giddy Over Fresco to Go

East Village: Correction: The O.G. restaurant on East 6th Street will close on August 2, and the owner plans to reopen the space this fall as the New York School, which, we think, could be another restaurant. [Eater]
Financial District: Downtown office workers are really excited about the new Fresco to Go on Pearl Street: They were lined up around the block today for a free little taste. [Eater]
Greenwich Village: It's Cow Appreciation Day for the Chick-fil-A chain, and anyone who stops by a location in a cow costume will win wait for it a free Chick-fil-A meal. Sneaking into NYU dorm Weinstein is the only way to eat at the city's sole location. This could either assure or destroy your chances of a fast-food chicken today. [Ad Age via Gawker]
