Grimaldi’s Will Move Down the Street; Magnum Action at Union Square Cafe

Bowery: EastBridge, the low-key Eldridge replacement, closed its doors a couple of weeks ago, and now the foodie gossip mill is buzzing with what kind of establishment will take its place. It sounds like the most likely contender is a bar tentatively called IMOK ("If Mother Only Knew") that will feature D.J.'s on the weekends. [Bowery Boogie]
Dumbo: After squabbles with their landlord, Grimaldi's is moving to a new space down the street from its original location. You can get one last pie at the old location on 19 Old Fulton Street next Monday before they set up shop at 1 Front Street, in a space underneath a nightclub. [Eater NY]

Executive chef Victoriano Lopez's menu includes a choice of pastel de choclo (a Peruvian corn cake with hon shimeji mushrooms and choclo saltado), aji de gallina (a creamy Peruvian stew of chicken, organic potatoes, quail egg, and micro greens), and naranjitas chinas confitadas (mandarin confit, frozen yogurt and marinated strawberries) for dessert.

Lower East Side: For those hoping to kick off Thanksgiving feasting a day early, head over to the Orchard House for a special "Thanksgiving Eve" dinner on Wednesday, November 23 at 6:30 p.m. and another seating at 8:30 p.m.. The three-course prix fixe dinner goes for $45 and will include dishes like caramelized pork belly with pecan-bourbon, Bosc pear and fennel, duck confit with black kale, apple, red wine cabbage and smoked chestnuts, and kabocha squash fritters.
