Financial District: SHO Shaun Hergatt’s slow-poached egg with cauliflower purée is as fancy as you might expect from recent reviews; expect gold leaf and caviar. [ Serious Eats NY]
East Village: Max Brenner’s Second Avenue location has closed. [Gothamist]
Harlem: The space under construction on Frederick Douglass Boulevard between 112th and 113th Streets may open as a Latin-American fusion restaurant called Delish, according to a construction worker. [Zinc Plate Press]

Williamsburg: Fette Sau owner Joe Carroll is opening a Jersey-diner-themed snack bar next to his bar Spuyten Duyvil, with “White Manna–style burgers [!], disco fries, and pork roll, AKA Taylor ham.” [Free Williamsburg]
Bonita has closed two weeks earlier than expected. We recommend the Little Mexico cart on Bedford at Metropolitan for a nearby taco replacement. [Eater]
