Pane Panelle Closes; Hester Nights Bids Summer Farewell

• It’s French Restaurant Week in New York, and Bagatelle, home to famously boozy brunches, will be offering a $25 prix fixe menu of their most famous dishes. [Grub Street]

• The well-regarded Catania Cafe on Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn Heights kept replacing the “On Vacation Until” sign in its front window throughout the spring and then some before focaccia seekers finally gave up during the summer. The restaurant will not reopen, and its contents are being auctioned off this Thursday afternoon. [Grub Street]

• Here’s Paula Deen on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?. [Eater National]

• We can’t really pretend it’s summer any longer. But Hester Nights, with help from summer newcomer Village Fishmonger and Pockets Full of Dough, will throw one last Thursday-night food fest, a seafood bonanza that includes a clambake, raw oysters, and shark tacos. [Grub Street]

• All in the family: Park Slope’s popular Beer Table ditches its à la carte menu to offer “Daily Dinners.” There will be no menus, but instead each night’s “family style” dinner focuses on a single ingredient (cheese, poultry, veggies, fish, beef, pork) and generous portions. There’s lots more info here. [Grub Street]

• Feast like its your job at “Not My Day Job,” a megaevent billed as a “talent and culinary showcase” benefitting three charities (Fourth Arts Block, the Greenwich House and Urban Arts Partnership), and featuring tasting tables and cocktails from a litany of New York restaurants and bars, including dell’anima, the Meatball Shop, Riverpark, Grandaisy Bakery, the Wren, and (many!) more. If you can’t find something here, we can’t help you. Head here for ticket info. [Grub Street]
