If you're planning to drop by the Clerkenwell this Friday for a little royal-wedding action, it'll be a good time to check out the new things coming out of the kitchen. Chef Ryan Jordan started a few weeks back (after stints at the Breslin and the original John Dory), and he's already added a lineup of snacks, with new salads and entrees rolling out soon. Look for bites such as crunchy, paprika-dusted "chickpea crisps," cauliflower fries with curry mayo, New Zealand–style steak-and-cheese or vegetable pies, and housemade currywurst. If you can't wait till Friday for that last one, the restaurant will dish up the sausage tomorrow night at the Taste of the Lower East Side; limited tickets are still available here.
