1) All 10,000 square feet of Block No. 16 Union & Spirits is now open in the East Village’s Culy Warehouse. Dancing, live music, and drinks.

2) Our mouths water for the signature dish at new Pinzimini (Westin Gaslamp Quarter): “crusty bread dipped in olive oil infused with sea salt and fresh herbs.”

3) Gaijin Noodle + Sake House just launched a menu for sake flights—sip any three top-shelf sakes for $10.

4) Chef Ben Lieberman leaves the fabric empire at Burlap in Carmel Valley in favor of better views and Mai Tai guzzlers at the Bali Hai.

this summer.
