A Sarcastic Appetite

Restaurant Round-up for the week of April 9

I canvass the food blogs so you don’t have to. Here are some highlights:

Nios opens in the former District space at the Muse Hotel in Midtown; photos and recession-friendly menu here

Because the Monday night $15 burger-and-beer deal wasn’t enough, Irving Mill’s sweetened it with a shot of rye whiskey.

Top Chef fans: Centro Vinoteca gets in on the happy hour with quartinos of wine for $7 and some cocktails for $8 – plus complimentary nibbles from chef de cuisine Leah Cohen, who’s still inexplicably nibbling Hosea.  The best part? This deal runs seven days a week, from 5 – 7 pm.

Want in at Graydon Carter’s Monkey Bar, the Waverly Inn of Midtown? Phone number here. Word to the wise? Don’t make your reservation under the name ‘Rupert Everett.’

If you’re in Hell’s Kitchen (oh, sorry, I mean “Clinton”), check out Five Napkin, whose signature burger was just named “Best New Hamburger” in NY by Time Out.

Per Se’s new à la carte “salon” menu is not winning many points over at the Post. But if the menu prices are anything like real estate prices, I think we can expect them to start coming down…

Bar Blanc closes for one day, re-opens as Bar Blanc Bistro. This is slightly misleading; they merely added some hors d’ouevres and sides (though the brussels sprouts are delicious). But neither the daily sandwich nor the burger is on the menu – you have to request them – and the rest of the menu is unchanged.
