Crawfish, Dior and an Experimental Salad on the High Line

Just hand over the weekend and nobody gets hurt.

Friday
Super Linda, Now Open for Lunch
LIND-SANITY

Super Linda, Now Open for Lunch

Best ways to break up a day: afternoon ball games. Naps. Extreme kite flying. But topping the list is the combination of chorizo tacos and peppered mango margaritas. Which is likely the rationale behind the unrolling of lunch at Tribeca’s favorite Linda-themed Latin grill. It’s proven that chorizo increases productivity.

Available now, weekday lunch 11:30am-4pm, weekend brunch 10:30am-4pm, Super Linda, 109 W Broadway, 212-227-8998, see the menu

Dior Homme’s New Summer Home
NEW HOMME

Dior Homme’s New Summer Home

As the saying goes, whenever a Dior closes, a pop-up opens. Which is exactly what’s happening this weekend, as the 57th Street Dior Homme shuts down for renovations. The whole operation will be in SoHo until September, complete with inspirational LED light sculpture. You know, for continuity’s sake.

Sunday
A Massive Salad on the High Line
SALAD DAYS

A Massive Salad on the High Line

If you’re going to eat a salad, you’re going huge. And this weekend, you’re also going conceptual. Alison Knowles is doing one of her famous giant-salad-making performance-art pieces on the High Line. Surfboard-sized croutons and yurt-esque bottles of Thousand Island are strongly encouraged.

A Mighty Gulf Feast in the East Village
BOILING POINT

A Mighty Gulf Feast in the East Village

When you hear the words “crawfish boil” and “sausage,” you respond with an elegant “yes.” When you hear it’s all being flown up the day before from Louisiana like this stuff, you don’t say anything at all. You just pack your custom bib, butter your hands and head over.

Apr 22 (and next three Sundays), 1-10pm, $30/plate, The Redhead, 349 E 13th St, 212-533-6212

Tuesday
A German Invasion of Strudel and Beer
BRAT PACK

A German Invasion of Strudel and Beer

Just what the world needs: more crisp German beer, brats and warm apple strudels... Oh, right. It does. And you’re in for it at the new LES outpost of this also-recently-opened West Village German bakery. It will forever be known as the Great Beer and Strudel Invasion of ’12.
