Maison Premiere, home of what may be the prettiest garden in the five boroughs, is upping its food game with a new chef (Jared Stafford-Hill, formerly of Adour, Gramercy Tavern, and Craft) and a new expanded menu. [Diner’s Journal/NYT]

• Chef Nick Anderer of Maialino takes you on a tour of his favorite places for after-dark eats. [Thrillist]
