Toasties Seized by NYU; Cider Pairing Event at the Queens Kickshaw

Astoria: Bring Cider Week to a close with a three-course dinner and cider pairings event at the Queens Kickshaw. Frisée salad, potpie, and bread pudding will be paired with ciders from the Finger Lakes region's Bellwether Cidery. An earlier seating has sold out, but tickets ($45) are still available for the 9:30 p.m. seating at brownpapertickets.com. [Grub Street]
Coney Island: The seven doomed Coney Island businesses, including Ruby's and Paul's Daughter, have been offered yet another reprieve after the restaurant group that was meant to replace them backed out. Faced with the possibility of empty storefronts during the 2012 season, landlord Zamperla USA started negotiations to bring the old haunts back to the boardwalk for eight-year leases — provided they commit to $100,000 worth of modernizations and renovations.
