Eating in the John Dory’s Kitchen

There’s two ways to get inside the kitchen at the John Dory. 1: Change careers and become a busboy. 2: Make reservations. April Bloomfield is allowing one private table per night the chance to eat amongst her chefs. Just be prepared in case they need some pinch-hit shucking.

Gant Rugger Opens in Nolita

Gant’s got a new 1,000-square-foot shop. And you’ve got a new air-conditioned space to hunt for short-sleeve plaids and summer-appropriate chinos. The trad-stocked outpost is designed to look sort of like an old New England manufacturing facility. Only with slightly less conveyor belts.

Now open, Mon-Sat, 11am-8pm; Sun, 11am-7pm; Gant Rugger, 25 Prince St, 646-559-0170

Saturday
The Woodstock of Edible Animals
PRIME TIME

The Woodstock of Edible Animals

The weekend. On its own, a worthy cause for celebration. But this Saturday, your revelry will be motivated by a higher power: meat. Yes, that most carnivorous of fetes, Meatopia, returns. Expect Mangalitsa pigs, chorizo tostados and a live band. Twenty bucks says they open with “Cheeseburger in Paradise.”

Sunday
Sunday Night Surf Movies at Solé East
NEW WAVE

Sunday Night Surf Movies at Solé East

Certain movies need to be seen on the big screen. Surf movies need to be seen on an outdoor screen. Just before sunset. In the Hamptons. So Solé East has set up a pair of Sunday night boarding flicks. They’ll begin with a preshow barbecue and end with you wishing summer were actually endless.

Jul 24 and Aug 7, 7pm, Solé East, 90 Second House Rd, Montauk, 631-668-2105
