April Bloomfield’s White Gold Opens Tomorrow


Tomorrow April Bloomfield and Ken Friedman will open their boutique butcher shop on the Upper West Side. The butcher shop will be offering select takeout snacks tomorrow, and the full service restaurant attached will open next week. The impetus for this move comes from the already staggering amount of burgers being produced by the duo’s currently operating restaurants. It has been estimated that the Spotted Pig serves 75,000 burgers a year alone. This move will give more control over the entire burger supply chain. You can also find White Gold’s burger meat at Salvation Burger and the Lobby Bar at the Ace Hotel.

Alamo Drafthouse to Open in Downtown Brooklyn


Do you enjoy a night out at the movies, but hate overpriced popcorn, soda, and candy? You’re in luck! Texas cinema chain Alamo Drafthouse will open its long-awaited location in Downtown Brooklyn on October 28th. Located in the City Point complex, the Alamo Drafthouse will offer patrons full dining and bar opportunities during their movie watching experience. The food menu features appetizers, salads, flatbreads, sandwiches, and desserts. The drinks menu features everything from cocktails, craft beer, wine, and mocktails for children. The Drafthouse is within reasonable walking distance of neighborhood favorite Cobble Hill Cinema and the United Artists location – both on Court St. To this point, the Alamo Drafthouse CEO recently spoke about this opening, stating that he believes NYC is still in need of more theater screens.
