Bravo Will Debut New Top Chef Show; Klimt-Inspired Cake Coming to Neue Galerie

Pure Luck Tea Bar is hosting a “Tea Bar-BQ” this evening beginning at 8 p.m. They’ll bring the beer, kombucha, and barbecue food if you bring the party (and $10). [Grub Street]
• The Neue Galerie will honor the metallic works of Gustav Klimt with a gold-flecked chocolate cake. The $9 confection will be served at the museum’s restaurant, Café Sabarsky, for the duration of the Klimt exhibit, from May 24 through August 27 . [DNA Info]
• Justino’s Pizzeria and Restaurant has opened a second location, at 451 Third Avenue, and is now serving up Brooklyn-style pies and a range of other entrees. Come and get 'em. [Grub Street]

• Would you fork over $59 for a box of sushi designed by Lenny Kravitz? Sushi Shop thinks so and has started offering just that. [Zagat Buzz]
• Bravo has green-lit a new show, Life After Top Chef, which, much as the name suggests, will follow four prior Top Chef–ers: Jen Carroll, Richard Blais, Fabio Viviani, and Spike Mendelsohn.* [Grub Street]
• OpenTable has released its electronic reservation book iPad app, which it hopes will streamline the booking process for tablet-wielding reservationists. It touts more accurate wait-time estimates. [Grub Street]
• The much-reviewed Alison Eighteen has begun serving lunch on weekdays from noon to 3 p.m. The menu includes entrees ranging from a braised lamb sandwich to a skirt steak. [Grub Street]
• Another reason to love springtime: After a hiatus, Salinas is reopening for brunch. [Grub Street]
Oceana will be adding a soundtrack to its Saturday nights with “Hot Jazz,” weekly this month from 9 p.m. to midnight. No cover minimum for anyone dining in the restaurant. [Grub Street]
• With a new menu at My Moon, Turkish fare is out, and Spanish tapas are in. Spring is the time of rebirth and renewal, after all. [Grub Street]
• There will be plenty of Turkish food, however, when Savann Restaurant hosts its “Taste of Turkey” event April 12 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The evening will feature a five-course tasting menu priced at a reasonable $50 per person. [Grub Street]
• Blu Café, a brand-new tea venture by Tavalon, opens today at the corner of 66th Street and Riverside Boulevard. They’ll be brewing premium teas, such as the “Upper West Side Detox,” a breakfast tea with ginger slices. [Grub Street]
