The just-opened Bill Baker’s Restaurant and Bar is closed. That was fast. We’re sorry to seem them go, but are looking forward to this:

There is a (small) shake-up happening in the Brooklyn pizza scene: You’ll recall that, late last year, Matt and Emily Hyland, the duo behind Brooklyn’s popular Emily, announced they’d open their square-pie spinoff, Emmy Squared, in Clinton Hill, near their original location. The couple, along with chef-partner Lou Tomczak, signed a lease in November on a small space on the same block as their first restaurant, but now, because of a legal dispute with the landlord, they’ve opted to open in a different neighborhood. That neighborhood: Williamsburg. [Read more...]

Together with co-founders and twin sisters Elle and Claire Bourgeois, Sniderman aims to reverse the concept of a retreat. “The need is closer to home,” she says. “People often feel as if they must step outside of their lives to feel empowered, connected and alive. But why? This question acted as the spark that ignited our initial Urban Retreat.”

The restaurant is called Lilia and it’s a partnership with the owners of Anella & Jimmy’s:

Chef Missy Robbins, who helped make Chicago’s Spiaggia a destination for the Obamas, has opened a restaurant on a quiet stretch of Union Avenue in Williamsburg. The A Voce vet is cooking up rustic Italian at her restaurant Lilia, with a focus on handmade pastas and seafood and meat cooked in a custom-made wood grill diners can peek at through the open kitchen.
