The Weekender

Burger Wars, the Sea and Skin

The weekend just died in your arms tonight.

Tiny Seafood at Maison Premiere
URCHIN NEWS

Tiny Seafood at Maison Premiere

You’ve sat in Maison Premiere’s vine-y garden, devouring oysters over cocktails, and thought, “I’ve got everything I need.” But you forgot about sea urchin. And fresh scallops. You even forgot about absinthe panna cotta. But it’s okay, because now they’ve got that, too. You’re always overlooking sea urchin.

New menu available now at Maison Premiere, 298 Bedford Ave (between S 1st and Grand), Brooklyn, 347-335-0446

A House of Acceptable Manliness
DEAR SCIENCE

A House of Acceptable Manliness

Your skin. Admit it, you’ve grown pretty attached over the years. What with its bang-up job at covering your body. So you’re probably going to want to check out this new MenScience spot, which has ridiculous amounts of good stuff for it. It’s got “science” in the name, so you know it’s good.

Now open, MenScience, 329 Lafayette St (between Houston and Bleecker), 212-219-3525

75% Off at a Little Place Called Barneys
SALE-ING

75% Off at a Little Place Called Barneys

Barneys is doing this thing right now where they take a bunch of stuff—butter-soft bomber jackets, boots, the occasional trouser (you know, the stuff you sometimes like to cover yourself with)—and sell it to you for less than normal. It’s called a sale. What’ll they think of next.

Aug 23-Sep 3, Barneys New York, 255 W 17th St (between 7th and 8th), 212-450-8400

Friday
Nolita on the Mediterranean
OTAY

Nolita on the Mediterranean

Up until today, your favorite Little Rascal was Buckwheat. But that was before you met one that looked like a Mediterranean barn filled with Turkish meatballs and octopus casserole, with a tendency toward heavy pours of montepulciano d’abruzzo. Buckwheat was never big on being a Mediterranean barn.

Now open, Little Rascal, 163 Elizabeth St (between Kenmare and Spring), 212-966-0446

Saturday
An Epic Hamptons Burger Throwdown
THE BURGS

An Epic Hamptons Burger Throwdown

You’ve always been a “make love, not war” type. The exception: burgers. So if you happen to be in Montauk this weekend (at least even money), you’ll witness a burger battle royal between the Empellón guy, the Fatty Crab guy, the Tertulia guy and some other guys. Witness with your mouth.
