Tribeca Gets Tre Sorelle; Chelsea Loses Vynl

Chelsea: It seems that Vynl’s Chelsea location has closed for good after an initial sign said it was undergoing "fall cleaning." No word on what will replace the Thai-American diner-food boîte, but a new restaurant under different owners is poised to take over the location. [Zagat Buzz]
Financial District: Head to the New Amsterdam’s Market’s Peck Slip Pickle Festival at the old Fulton Fish Market (on South Street, near Beekman Street) this Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. to try a variety of pickles and some wintry, cheesy goodies, like Saxelby Cheesemongers’ raclette. [Grub Street]

Gramercy: Nuela will now offer their own version of happy hour called "Vamos de Copeo." During their "South American Cocktail Fiesta" on weekdays from 5 to 7 p.m., you can imbibe half-price drinks like pisco sours and nibble on food from a specially priced bar menu. [Grub Street]
Lower East Side: Clinton Street gastropub the Clerkenwell will relaunch as Kupersmith this Friday, with a sausage-based menu. Eight SVA students helped with the rebranding (and redesign of the interior and exterior) as part of a special seminar. [Lo-Down]
Apparently Teany, the LES café that Moby once co-owned, has been selling booze (well, okay, beer at least) without a valid license. Though their license expired in February 2010 and no application for renewal was made, customers (and reporters at the Local) were still able to buy beer on site. When asked about this, the new owner could only promise to talk to his staff and "take the Heineken out of the fridge." Hmmm. [Local East Village/NYT]
Tribeca: Tre Sorelle, a new (and affordable) Italian restaurant, has opened at 61 Reade Street and will feature classic Italian fare, like chicken parmigiana, sausage and peppers, and a variety of pizzas. Owned by three Tribeca-residing sisters, their aim was to open an Italian restaurant "where the chefs are all Italian" (their chef is from Naples and their pizzaiolo is from northern Italy) and where prices weren’t going to drive away "the people who made Tribeca." Tre Sorelle will be open for lunch and dinner seven days a week, and will also offer delivery. [Tribeca Citizen]
Upper West Side: Every Monday, you can now get select bottles of wine for half off at Fatty Crab during their dinner service. [Grub Street]
