Hood News

- James is open! I am dying to check out this new Prospect Heights restaurant. From Grub Street, "Owners Deborah Williamson and Bryan Calvert (the latter a Bouley and Union Pacific veteran) found a 100-year-old brownstone on St. Marks and Carlton avenues for their new venture, but don't expect the menu to be aged. Look for crispy sweetbreads with rhubarb-honey glaze, rack of lamb with summer-bean stew, a grass-fed burger with Cotswold cheese, and so forth." Yum.

- The UnFancy Food Show is this weekend at the East River Bar in Williamsburg

- Time Out reports "Former Asiate chef Eton Chan has opened a handmade dumpling house with shaved ice on the menu at 205 Sackett Street, near Henry Street."

- They also report that the Chocolate Room, next to the Cobble Hill Cinemas is now open.

- Brownstoner says there is (another) new Thai place on 5th Ave in the Slope, Mee. Everyone's gotta love cheap thai food.

- A new restaurant, The General Greene, is taking over where June use to be in Fort Greene. ClitnonHillBlog has photos and says it was open this past weekend.
