I don’t want to get into a whole thing on year-end list culture. About how it’s either a group-think circle jerk or a navel-gazing troll job.

With the impending L Train shutdown on the horizon, we’ve sadly seen a lot of restaurant closings in the last couple of months.

Mission Chinese opened its Bushwick brother last weekend inside club Elsewhere. If you like the buzzy Danny Bowein restaurant and live in Bushwick, this is a reason to rejoice. If you don’t get the hype (we don’t) then swing by Birds of a Feather or General Deb’s. So far reviews are positive, though they are […]
