A roundup of restaurant and nightlife news around the neighborhood today.
- East Houston Street newcomer Gaia Italian Cafe gets some love for its vegetarian options, and this exclamatory remark: “This is Italian Italian food.”
- This week’s Community Board 3 SLA committee meeting covered a lot of ground: bad news for the bar formerly known as Aces and Eights (formerly known as Mo’ Pitkin’s) and Clinton Street’s CultureFix, but good news for newcomers Masala Wala and Zoe.
- Early reviews of Orchard Street’s APL are in, and they’re pretty good all around.
- Something’s going on with the produce market under the Manhattan Bridge.
