Pizza Party! Chrissy’s Pizza on the LES which has been taking pre-orders for months, says it is putting the finishing touches on its pizza joint and that you can expect to walk in “incredibly soon.” Stay tuned.

Fulgurances Laundromat is transforming into a wine bar for three special Sundays (Aug 6, 27 and Sept 10) to help get Chef Quang Nguyen cooking again after the abrupt closing of Cool World.  Think natural wines and mezcal pickled corn ribs, grilled pork lettuce wraps and more.
