New Year’s Eve at Booker and Dax; Black Flag’s Rehearsal Space No Longer Punk

• Franklin Becker’s “100 percent gluten-free” restaurant the Little Beet opens today in midtown. The all-day restaurant serves plancha-grilled proteins, sides made from local vegetables and whole grains, and cold-pressed juices. [Grub Street]

• West Coast restaurant Abigaile, located in beautiful Hermosa Beach, California, serves things like roasted Medjool date and kale salad and otherwise “globally influenced and domestically sourced” food in the space where acts like Black Flag and the Circle Jerks once practiced. Conclusion: $110 bottles of ice wine may be chilly, but they’re certainly not punk. [Please Kill Me]

• The ever-expanding Burger Bistro now has an Astoria location. For some, the build-your-own option means being one step closer to fulfilling lifelong dreams of a “Noah’s Ark” burger: two beef patties, two antelope patties, two elk patties, two alligator patties, and two turkey patties, all served on a floating glazed doughnut.

• Takashi announced it has a late-night secret ramen menu, most likely because the people who run the restaurant are really bad at keeping secrets. Make reservations as unobtrusively as possible here. [First We Feast]

• Sommelier Laura Maniec is opening a second location of her Corkbuzz Wine Studio in Chelsea Market this spring. This ought to give you a few months to make sure you’ve got a decent Champagne saber. [NYT]

• It’s almost New Year’s Eve, and if you’re looking for a party that’s got a low-key vibe and a red hot poker that’s 1,500 degrees, look no further than Booker and Dax. Details are here. [Momofuku LP]
