Turns out, Run the Jewels aren’t the only folks Nas recently teamed up with. The man who once spat the words “fried chicken, fly vixen / give me heart disease but need you in my kitchen” is now a partner in Sweet Chick.

There’s a curvy outline where the bar used to be, some graffiti on the ground where the bathrooms were, and parts of the old front doors have been turned into moldings, but that’s pretty much all that remains of Max Fish in the space that will reopen as the second location of Sweet Chick.

Some will shake their fist at news that Sweet Chick is taking over the former home of the late, great Max Fish. Others, not so much. They’re the desperate, hungover souls who shuffle into the Bedford Avenue comfort-food spot on any given Sunday, in search of chicken and waffles, shrimp n’ grits, and smoked pork hash. And bloodies all day.
We stopped in on a recent weekend afternoon for our inaugural edition of the Hangover Report, during which we ask brunchers to lose the Ray Bans and tell us just how bad the pain is, and what they got up to the night before. Watch the video to hear their tales of debauchery and penance.
The Hester Street Fair kicked off its ninth outdoor season on Saturday, with more than 20 food and crafty vendors setting up in the usual Seward Park spot under glorious, about-goddamn-time springtime skies. The scene, as always, was plenty festive but also pleasantly low key, because unlike Smorgasburg, which is great for different reasons, Hester Street never really gets uncomfortably mobbed. Even after all these years, this remains very much a neighborhood hang.
The Union Square/Nomad/Flatiron area has become an epicenter of health-minded, chef-driven fast-casual joints, what with Sweetgreen, Dig Inn, Danny Meyer’s Daily Provisions, Franklin Becker’s Little Beet, and Made Nice, from the team behind Eleven Madison Park. The latest entrant in the category is Tender Greens, a West Coast chain that has just opened a Union Square location, its first outside of California.
Turntable, a second-floor Koreatown hideaway specializing in retro vinyl and Korean fried chicken, has opened a second location (its first at street level) in Alphabet City. Chef Lee Jun told us that the restaurant will be closed tonight while they put some final tweaks on the slightly steampunk decor, but starting Tuesday night they’ll be back in business, serving their signature wings while a DJ spins from the owner’s substantial collection of vinyl from the ’50s on up. (Last time we went to the K-town location, we heard a lot of Joy Division, Smiths, Cure, and New Order.)
Just in time for summer, Chinatown got a new bubble tea parlor via Formosa Cafe, on Eldridge Street. Actually, this one is less of a parlor and more of a slick lounge, complete with pleather seating, wifi, and Shepard Fairy-esque art on the walls. If you’re in a rush for slush, check out the photo below and read on for the menu.
