  • Skal, the new Icelandic spot in the old Les Enfants space on Canal Street, is getting some attention.  Both the Times and the New Yorker reviewed it this week, and seemed to conclude that the place shows flashes of brilliance but that there are “wobbles” in the kitchen.
  • After delays in build-out took the better part of four years, Louie and Chan, an Italian-Chinese inspired restaurant/club combination from the owners of Grotto opens tomorrow, with seating for 44 and a menu helmed by Stuzzi alum Pasquale Frola. The downstairs club, touting an “opium den atmosphere” is set to open at a later date, and will be called The 303 at Louie and Chan.
  • Meet the two guys who named their bar, Rochelle’s at 205 Chrystie St., after their ex.
  • Fung Tu, offering a creative twist on home-style Chinese cuisine, opens at 22 Orchard St. November 26.
  • Brannon’s, a restaurant offering “sophisticated American comfort food,” is now open at 119 Essex St.
