A Taste of Fatty ‘Cue; New CSAs in Carroll Gardens, Dumbo


Bushwick: The as-yet-unopened Free Wifi chose its name as a clever metonym for their focus on plugging in. A soft preview of the large, open space — which will offer live music, liquor, coffee, and some food — might happen later this week. [BushwickBK]
Carroll Gardens: The Urban Meadow team is gauging interest for Columbia Street’s very own CSA, based out of Urban Meadow, a community garden located at the corner of President and Van Brunt Streets. [Word on Columbia Street]
Dumbo: The Dumbo–Vinegar Hill CSA is hosting an informational meeting on March 2. [Dumbo NYC]
Downtown Brooklyn: A restaurant is in the works for the bottom floor of Bridgeview Tower at 189 Bridge Street. [Brownstoner]

East Village: New on S’MAC’s menu: a salsa picante macaroni and cheese, with pepper jack, cheddar, salsa, chicken breast, and cilantro. [Grub Street]
Upper East Side: The David Burke Townhouse hosts a “very special four-course wine dinner” with sommelier Larry Stone. Call 212-813-2121 for tickets, which run $175 a person. [Grub Street]
Upper West Side: The Fatty empire’s various locations join forces at Fatty Crab UWS, each providing three dishes, two specialty cocktails, and unlimited seconds for, in their words, “a culinary and cocktail tour de force the likes of which are rarely seen above 14th street.” Decide for yourself March 3 at 7:30 p.m.; call 212-496-2722 for the $59 tickets.
