Sweet Chick’s Pig Roast; Saves the Day Plays Mission Cantina

Casa Mono is celebrating its tenth anniversary, fittingly, with a ten-course meal complete with wine pairings spanning one dish from every year the restaurant has been open.

West Side Rag reports that Sambuca on the Upper West Side will close after 28 years of serving hearty, family-style Italian meals. There are still ten years left on the lease, and owner Liza Wetanson announced she plans on partnering with a well-known group on a new restaurant in the space. The exact closing date is not yet clear, but Sambuca will most likely shut its doors before the New Year. [West Side Rag]

Mission Cantina is apparently not just a place for Danny Bowien’s stellar tacos but also the perfect venue for a late-night Tecate-and-sake-fueled impromptu performance of sorts from Saves the Day. The band had just finished a sold-out acoustic show at Bowery Ballroom, came in for mushroom quesadillas, and ended up drunkenly performing its classic songs with a couple of Beatles covers thrown in for good measure.

Sweet Chick is hosting a family-style pig roast on New Year’s Eve from 10 p.m to 2 a.m., which will also include an open bar and Champagne toast. On hand will of course be plenty of roast pig goodness alongside kale BLT salads, thick-cut house-cured bacon, biscuits, and fried chicken, of course. Tickets are $75 per person and can be purchased here. [Grub Street]

• If you’ve ever wondered what an ice-cream flavor called “Cinnamon and Lesbians” might taste like — who hasn’t? — Momofuku Milk Bar has got you covered. The concoction, whatever it turns out to be, is slated to be the special soft-serve flavor at a yet-to-be-revealed location starting January 7 for one week only. It must be noted that the flavor name is actually inspired by a song off of Stephen Malkmus & the Jick’s new album Wig Out at Jagbags, not cinnamon-covered lesbians. [Momofuku]

• There are just a few seats available for a holiday dinner hosted by Jehangir Mehta, the chef behind Graffiti and Mehtaphor, tonight at 7:30 p.m. in his private kitchen in the East Village. The meal will consist of a seven-course tasting menu for $110 per head, with wine conveniently available by the glass or bottle. Reservations can be made by sending an e-mail or calling 424-888-0294.

• Owners Sam Buffa and Jean Adamson are converting Vinegar Hill House’s year-and-a-half-old spinoff Hillside into a new events space. [Eater NY]
