The big-box gourmet store comes to Midwood.
Now all of a sudden it's not "F Di Fara" anymore.
Unspeakable charges are made against the patron saint of pizza.
Harlem residents suspect gentrifiers are the cause of a raccoon outbreak, a miffed man burns down his neighbor's house on Staten Island, and government workers from separate departments deliberately, sneakily sabotage one another in the East Village. All this and more in our daily boroughs report.
Crazy Legs Conti, the world’s eleventh-ranked competitive eater and bon vivant about town, describes his diet as “benign gluttony — everything in moderation, including excess.”
Robuchon in the house, frozen drinks at the Rusty Knot, and a Web page for Di Fara.
Astoria: Martha’s Country Bakery on Ditmars frosts its cupcakes wedding-cake-style (with fondant icing), and they’re open until 1 a.m. on weekends.

[Joey in Astoria] Boerum Hill: Lunetta is just one restaurant participating in Dine-In Brooklyn (March 24–31), when restaurants will offer three-course meals for $23. [Zagat Buzz] Brooklyn Heights: Seventy-two-year-old restaurant Armando’s will close after Sunday dinner. [Eater] Midtown East: If a Reuben is as close as you want to get to corned beef and cabbage on Monday, you can find a good one at Patrick Conway’s on East 43rd Street. [Gridskipper] Midwood: This photomontage follows the making of a Di Fara pie; though Domenico’s secret weapon might be revealed by the article's last line: "And then he’s off to the back room for a shot of grappa (I think that’s what it was), and it’s back to making pies." [Epi-Log/Epicurious]
Chelsea: The former Daniele’s Piadina space on 22nd Street east of Sixth Avenue sat empty for two years, but it will reopen as a sandwich shop called Ashby’s on Monday.

[Zagat] Fort Greene: In her list of last-minute Valentine’s Day options, Danyelle Freeman recommends Cake Man Raven if you want to "just forget dinner and grab a few whopping slices of the decadent red velvet cake that made this bakery famous." [Restaurant Girl] Soho: In honor of this romantic week, it’s only right that bananas (and resulting desserts around town) are celebrated for being "not only insanely phallic but also brimming with potassium and B vitamins, which are necessary for keeping your sex drive going." But you don’t have to tell your date that after deciding to share Blue Ribbon Brasserie’s top-rated banana split.
