Union Square Goes Mediterranean; Mayahuel Changes Up Its Mescal


East Village: Mayahuel has temporarily switched to Sombra mescal for house cocktails because there are no more bottles of the opening brand left in the States. Sombra has a more pronounced “peaty” taste, according to a server. [Grub Street]
Lower East Side: Cookbook author Joan Nathan will talk Jewish-cooking recipes and stories at the Tenement Museum shop on September 10 at 6:30 p.m. [Grub Street]
Union Square: On Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m, Sabra will transform Union Square Park into a “Mediterranean Village” and a mecca of free samples. Former Next Food Network Star contestant and Sabra rep Colombe Jacobsen will host and demo recipes. [Sabra]
