New Year’s Eve Dinner at Prune; Chuko Expands in Brooklyn

• On New Year’s Day, Atrium Dumbo will extend their hours and offer their brunch menu from noon to 5 p.m., serving comfort/hangover food like duck confit sandwiches with arugula and pickled vegetables. This beats microwaved Top Ramen, we’re sure of it. [Grub Street]

• For those still deciding on New Year’s Eve dinner plans, here’s a knockout. Prune will offer not one, but four separate menus inspired by chef Gabrielle Hamilton’s travels: American South ($65), Uruguay ($95), Milan ($80), and Sicily ($70). Each menu consists of four or five courses; wine pairings optional. Call 212-677-6221 for reservations. [Grub Street]

The Guardian reports that Prince William is going back to college, this time to study agricultural management full-time at Cambridge University. “Full-time” in this case means a ten-week course specially designed for him at the Cambridge Programme for Sustainability Leadership, where his father is a patron — we doubt student loans are going to be an issue.

• In restaurant expansion news, the Morimoto-alum-fueled ramen bar Chuko will open in Bushwick this spring. The new restaurant is headed to Evergreen Avenue and will have 70 seats, which is a lot of noodles. Another, long-awaited Chuko iteration, Bar Chuko, is slated to open mid-February in Prospect Heights. [Eater NY]
