Extremely Rare Japanese Dessert Coming to Kajitsu for Four Days Only
Just remember, Kajitsu is closed on Mondays. As we’ve already mentioned, this is the height of cold-noodle season, and connoisseurs might want to stick around town this steamy weekend to experience perhaps the rarest variety: kuzukiri, the chilled noodle dessert made from kudzu and water and served with black sugar syrup. The arguably most famous version can be found at Kagizen, a nearly three-centuries-old confectionery shop in Kyoto. For the first time, the venerable shop will be preparing it off-site, at Kajitsu in Murray Hill, from Saturday, July 26, through Wednesday, July 30 (closed Monday), from 1 to 4:30 p.m. This is very big news for the expat community and all lovers of esoteric Asian desserts. More details here. [Official site, Related] Read more posts by Rob Patronite and Robin Raisfeld Filed Under: noodling, cold noodles, foodievents, kagizen, kajitsu - ryu77

Williamsburg’s Next Starbucks Will Serve Beer and Wine
Coming to 154 North 7th Street. Back in March, Starbucks chief executive Howard Schultz outlined plans to bring goat cheese flatbread and chardonnay to "thousands of stores" in the form of Starbucks Evenings, the coffee chain's attempt to almost double its market value to $100 billion by proving its mettle in truffled macaroni and cheese and various other small plates. It looks like Williamsburg's humdrum first Starbucks will soon be joined by another, at 154 North 7th Street, but that one will have the added pizzazz of beer and wine, and most likely more savory food. The chain will appear next month at a community board meeting to explain its plans, which hopefully include some of their parmesan chicken skewers, because Williamsburg doesn't have enough of those.

This Weekend Is Your Last Chance to Go to Rodeo Bar
R.I.P. After 27 years in business, Rodeo Bar must close because of a steep increase in rent.

News: Congress passes bill to legalize phone unlocking
The U.S. House of Representatives unanimously passed a bill today that will legalize cell phone unlocking, following the Senate’s approval of the bill last week. All the “Unlocking Consumer Choice and Wireless Competition Act” needs now is for President Obama to sign the bill into law — a virtual guarantee considering the White House has already expressed its support for legally unlocking phones.

Cupcake Truck Accused of Anti-Semitism Might Want to Go Back to Tweeting About Frosting
According the one tweet, the truck went out of business in April of 2013. Someone who's been put in charge of the official account of Cupcake Crew, a one-time Vendy Award finalist that proclaims it "bakes with love daily" and may or may not be a defunct business, seemingly has an itchy Twitter finger and lots of hateful opinions. At least since January, the business has been firing off rantlike messages fairly regularly, and this week it delved right into the Israel-Palestine conflict, instead of sticking to topics like, say, red velvet or buttercream. "Ironically what the Zionist pigs are doing to Palestinian Arabs today is exactly what Hitler and the Nazi's did to them #FreePalestine," read one tweet, since deleted, but there are more. A message from January relates to the murder of Menachem Stark, the Hasidic landlord.

Shake Shack May Next Be Headed to Williamsburg
Shake Shack is opening on Flatbush Avenue next month. Outposts of Parm and Umami Burger are already opening at North 4th Street and Bedford Avenue, and this morning, word started to spread that Danny Meyer's Shake Shack had signed for a space at North 4th Street and Berry, a residential building that will have at least three commercial tenants on the ground floor. (Starbucks opened nearby this week, chain-wise, but no one seems at all excited about that.) Specifically, the "head construction guy" at the site told Free Williamsburg that Shake Shack was moving in. We checked in with Shake Shack communications executive Greg Waters, who wrote back in an email: We're huge fans of Williamsburg, but at the moment we don't have anything concrete to share. As far as Brooklyn goes, right now we're focused on our DUMBO location which opened last month, and we're putting the finishing touches on our Flatbush Avenue location which we hope to open in early August.

Russia Declares War on McDonald’s Burgers, Filet-O-Fish, and Pretty Much Everything Else on the Menu
Better stick to Rusburger. Russia's McDonald's outlets (424 total) will be serving Vlad-knows-what if Rospotrebnadzor, the government's consumer protection agency, gets its way. The authority has essentially asked the court to declare the fast-food chain's salads, cheeseburgers, "Royal" burgers, Chickenburgers, Filet-O-Fish, milkshakes, and ice-cream desserts with fruit toppings illegal because of "inappropriate physical-chemical and microbiological parameters." (In a surprise move, however, the watchdog group has determined that Big Macs are okay.) The group's outpost in Novgorod conducted an investigation last month, it turns out, allegedly finding an excess of coliform bacteria in its salads, which is never a good thing, and general subterfuge with regard to the nutritional information McDonald's posted on all those other items. So now the chain must pay the price, or something, in the form of a greatly attenuated menu. Rospotrebnadzor, Reuters points out, previously moved to ban... - ryu77

Ding Dong Lounge Will Close July 31
Punk's still not dead. The dimly lit and grungy Ding Dong Lounge, which has for 13 years been home to several generations of punk rock show flyers plastered to the walls, a vintage Ms. Pac-Man console, and $2 happy hour cans of Genesee Cream Ale, will close on July 31. The bar, once described by Gothamist as the only dive bar "doing its best to create the kind of crappy atmosphere we desperately desire in our watering holes," is planning to relocate, and is shutting down despite a steady influx of customers. "The Ding has lost its lease. Victim to landlord greed, avarice, and douchebaggery," writes Linda Rizzo, a DJ at the space. The bar posted a farewell message to its website: We are sad to announce that the Ding Dong Lounge will be forced to pour its last drinks at its current location on Thursday July 31. Like so many other unique New York City businesses, the Ding has lost its lease, despite having the highest sales in its 13 year history and being named the Best Cheap Manhattan... - ryu77

What to Eat at Bar Sardine, Now Open and Serving a $10 Burger
The Fedora Burger with smoked cheddar, crispy potatoes, cucumbers, and barbecue mayo. Last night, Gabriel Stulman opened Bar Sardine on West 10th Street — the former home to Chez Sardine. As part of this restaurant redo, Stulman has ditched the Japanese concept in favor of a classic, all-American bar. Chef Mehdi Brunet-Benkritly's menu includes a nice mix of hearty and healthy foods: Cod fritters, arctic-char tartare, Gruyère grilled cheese with beer mustard, and, notably, a $10 burger with smoked Cheddar and barbecue mayo. Renovations include a bigger bar in the center of the room and a drink rail along the windows, where you can order cocktails like Supply & Demand Julep (with rye, peach, lemon, and mint), or choose from four different bottles of rosé.

Year-Old Grace Bar Closes in Murray Hill
Pizza and cocktails are coming in next. Grace Gaelic Hospitality opened last September, offering a menu of drinks devised by a posse of illustrious women bartenders known for their work at places like Raines Law Room, Clover Club, Death & Co., and a number of other great bars, but apparently the concept just didn't work for the space. "They could never fill the restaurant side and were consistently losing money," an employee tells Eater. The bar has now closed; its owners will reopen as something called Nick's Pizza Bar, a brick-oven-based sibling of sorts to lower Manhattan's Harry's Italian Pizza Bar.

Singer-Songwirter Somi Stays Fresh With Kale, Blueberries, and Callaloo
"We ended up doing a late round of drinks and brussels sprout tacos." "I moved to Harlem because I loved the fact that there was so much African fare here," says Somi, an acclaimed East African vocalist and songwriter. "Even if the food's not straight African, I love that it’s inspired by African heritage and culture and flavors." Somi, now a pescetarian after 18 years of vegetarianism, was born in Illinois to immigrants from Rwanda and Uganda, spent a portion of her childhood in Zambia, and holds a degree in anthropology and African studies. She also recently spent 18 months in Lagos, Nigeria, — the inspiration for her upcoming album The Lagos Music Salon, out August 5.

Is Richard Blais’s Cat Food Ad the Biggest Reach Ever for a Top Chef Endorsement Deal?
Fancy Feast put Richard Blais to work on his own line of cat food, and the fruits of that labor are now just in. By the looks of it, the Top Chef franchise regular's approach seems to have been relatively hands-off, and the conversation only finally turns to food when his "broths" randomly show up in the mail 90 seconds into the commercial. "I know a good broth when I see it," says Blais, who we note does not actually taste the broth. In terms of subject material in relation to the chef, this one goes pretty far beyond Fabio Viviani's shill for Domino’s "Artisan" pies, way past Edward Lee's side work for Colonel Sanders, and probably even edges out Spike Mendelsohn's efforts to extoll the virtues of prescription acid reflux medication.

What to Eat at Corkbuzz’s New Chelsea Market Outpost
Cured sardines. Master sommelier Laura Maniec opens her second location of Corkbuzz tonight in Chelsea Market — specifically, near the 15th Street entrance. It's a wine bar, first and foremost, but the food menu is quite different from the original Union Square location. A Voce alum Missy Robbins has collaborated with Maniec on dishes like veal tartare with lardo, a foie-gras-and-jelly sandwich, cured sardines with tomato conserva and sesame, and to-go snacks for long walks on the High Line. (Robbins is only onboard temporarily, though.) There's already a third location in the works: Maniec will open Corkbuzz 3.0 in Charlotte, North Carolina.
