Chelsea Papaya got a makeover last week. Compare the new 3-D signage to the old one and you’ll see it’s quite an update. Kind of kung fu movie poster, no? Oh, and speaking of typography, we’ve been meaning to bring your attention to an Indian restaurant that opened some months ago across from the New York Times Building at 601 Eighth Avenue. As the food-blogging community knows, the Times does not take kindly to this sort of thing; these guys might want to ask Chelsea Papaya for the number of their guy.
