• God of Gangnam, Psy, and Korean bibimbap chain, Bibigo, are launching “Psygo Bibigo,” a campaign to find a personal chef who will receive $40,000 and tour with the pop star for a month. With the help of Facebook and Bibigo, Psy will choose a winner with the “craziest mixing moves.” While we don’t know what that means exactly, we do know that Bibigo will soon open a branch in New York. There's a YouTube video, of course. [Grub Street]

Cienfuegos is launching a new dinner menu tonight by chef Andrew D'Ambrosi, formerly of Le Cirque.

Customers who make a purchase on opening day get to spin a Pie Face Prize Wheel for a chance to wine a free savory pie, espresso, or Aussie cake. [Grub Street]
