Is Williamsburg’s Whole Foods a food court or a grocer?

It’s beginning to sound more like the latter. In a press release issued yesterday, Whole Foods’ reps announced that there will be seven food vendors inside the market plus an Odd Fellows outpost where you can have dessert. The store is slotted to open July 26 on Bedford at at 238 Bedford Ave:

UberEATS debuts in Greenpoint and Williamsburg today!

And the delivery options just got a lot better! Hopefully, Bushwick will be included soon too.

Unsurprisingly, the entire borough won’t have access to the service just yet; the company has focused on Greenpoint and Williamsburg for its initial run. Those familiar to the area’s delivery options will see familiar faces—BrisketTown, Chinese Club, Delilah’s Steaks, No 7 Sub, Rosamunde—but there are some restaurants partnering exclusively (for now) with Uber. Among them: Cassette, JUS by Julie, MID | NIGHTS, Rider, Sweethaus, Moe’s Doughs Donut Shop and vegan delights Dun-Well Doughnuts.

The shtick at UberEATS is a flat $2.99 per restaurant—similar services that deliver from previously dine-in only spots can vary from $2.99 to $5.99 and beyond—and the company says there’s no need to tip drivers (though maybe you should?). Prices from restaurants appear to be the same through Uber as they would be ordering directly from the restaurant—so long as you don’t keep your driver waiting while you scramble to put on pants to answer the door.

The 2016 Giglio Festival begins this week

Organizers of the Giglio Italian Feast at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Williamsburg say that everyone is welcome to join festivities, which last July 6–17, and that even the most recent arrivals to the neighborhood can join the dancing and singing crowds.
