Happy to see that Pastosa is still going strong. This Bensonhurst institution still makes some of the best ravioli in the city. We were amazed at home many flavors they now offer among other Italian delicacies.

Caffe Panna's latest offering in Gramercy is Oreos and ice cream drowned in espresso. Yum!

Brooklyn Dumpling Shop is branching out, adding a new Triple “Kung Pao” Smash Burger to the menu.

Speaking of new menu items, Dame is now offering fried polenta with whitefish salad and trout roe on top. They’ve also got a collab with Mr.Tuna coming up on Jan 21st.

Brooklyn Winery is hosting a Wine Dinner on January 14th featuring five courses with wine included for $89 per person. Sounds like a real steal.

Bar Pasquale is offering a $45 Sunday Supper with offerings such as Artichokes alla Romana, Ricotta Ravioli in Sunday Sauce, Chicken Parm and Tiramisu.

Milu is now doing Dim Sum on weekends (one of our favorite things in the world) starting this Saturday (1/13)

mikejchau, aka Food Baby, reports that Scarrs Pizza has reopened after being shut down by a fire in the building last November.

Barrows Intense at Industry City is offering a seasonal take on the Lemon Drop made with pear and ginger. Can't wait to try!

l’abeille is kicking off its Chef in Residence Dining Series #3 on Jan 11 & 12 with chef Pietravalle Florent from Avignon alongside l’abeille’s Mitsunobu Nagae.

And Chambers is hiring a sommelier if anyone is looking. The ad reads in part... nice hours, nice benefits, nice people only.
