Alewife’s Soup Dumpling Meatballs; Free Salad Tomorrow at Flatiron Chop’t

• Salume’s Times Square kiosk is closed for renovations, but an employee at the Soho store tells us it will reopen next month. [Grub Street]

• 5 Boro Burger has opened in Herald Square with, according to one assessment, decent (but uninspiring) patties. [Midtown Lunch]

• Three words: soup dumpling meatballs. Alewife will be serving them tonight at Boro Magazine’s fund-raiser for City Harvest, and they’ll be appearing on the menu soon. [Grub Street]

• George Mendes of Aldea will be among the inaugural chefs at Chefs Club, Food and Wine’s new concept restaurant at the St. Regis in Aspen. [Grub Street]

• For all of the quality time we spend with pizza, it might as well be our lover, and we’re glad that the folks at L’Asso feel the same way: They’ll be debuting a “Pizza Is My Lover” photo exhibition at their East Village location featuring — you guessed it! — good-looking pies. They’ll celebrate with a reception April 17 from 6 to 9 p.m. At L’Asso, you’ll also be able to relax with a cup of tea: They’ve started serving organic teas and tisanes from In Pursuit of Tea. [Grub Street]

• Free food alert: Chop’t will be giving away salad tomorrow at its new Flatiron location, 18 East 23rd Street. The lettuce will fly beginning at 11:30 a.m. In other Chop’t news, stop by any of the locations next week to purchase the Telepan School Lunch Salad. A dollar from each Telepan sold benefits PS 175’s Washington, D.C. trip. [Eater NY]

• Mix together nachos and tater tots, and you get … nacho tots? They exist (at the Domo Taco truck), but the connoisseurs at Nachos NY find them “gimmicky.” [Nachos NY]

• Both Burger Bistro locations — Bay Ridge (7217 Third Avenue) and Park Slope (177 Fifth Avenue) — are now serving kangaroo burgers. Hop to it! [Grub Street]
