Tickets Now on Sale for Village Voice’s ‘Choice Streets’; Jbird Launching Brunch Menu

Carroll Gardens: It looks like Momofuku Milk Bar might indeed be expanding to Carroll Gardens: They're listed by the Department of Health at 360 Smith Street. We'll take it with a grain of salt for now: We recall the DOH having been wrong before. [Eater NY]
Clinton Hill: Second-grader Gabriel Goldman, age 7, is competing in Uncle Ben's rice "Ben's Beginners Contest," and his "Trail Mix Rice Pudding" recipe sounds like a winner to us. Help him out by voting here. [Local/NYT]
For those who really love goat (and don't we all?), Locanda Vini e Olii is bringing back its goat-themed tasting menu. For $35, enjoy a Goat Head Soppressata, Goat Tortelli, Braised Goat Leg and Ribs, and a choice of dessert. Sounds goat good to us. [Grub Street]

Financial District: The Potbelly Sandwich Shop at Broadway and Reade is officially open. Will they honor the famed underground menu? Either way, lunch hour just got a little bit tastier. [Midtown Lunch]
Hell's Kitchen: The Village Voice will bring together food trucks from across the city on April 24 from 7 to 10 p.m. for "Choice Streets." Participants including Red Hook Lobster Pound, Korilla BBQ, Green Pirate Juice Truck, and the Cinnamon Snail will park at Pier 86 of the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum Complex, for your eating pleasure. Tickets, $30, are on sale today, so you know what to do! [Grub Street]
Soho: The Dutch will at last be launching Fresh Eggs, its private, multi-course series of dinners. E-mail fresheggs@thedutchnyc.com for booking info. [AndreCarmellini/Twitter]
Upper East Side: Just this week, the intrepid team at New York Magazine named Jbird the Best Uptown Bar in our annual Best of New York issue, and now they're giving us one more reason to swoon. The cocktail bar will debut its brunch menu this Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., including, wait for it, a French Toast-meets-Grilled Cheese Sandwich. [Grub Street]
