Is this boy from Queens the new King of All Media? Vice just renewed Action Bronson’s food-hunting show, Fuck, That’s Delicious, which spawned a book that’s out next month; plus, he’ll soon be the host of a daily late-night show and a dating game on Snapchat. Meanwhile, he hasn’t quit his day job; his new album, Blue Chips 7000, drops Aug. 26, and you can hear a fresh cut off of it, featuring fellow big boy Rick Ross, below.

Today we spoke by phone with Ilan Hall, who will soon open an East Coast outpost of his LA restaurant, The Gorbals inside the new Urban Outfitters concept store, Space Ninety 8. The winner of Top Chef‘s second season, who “was born in Manhattan, grew up on Long Island, then blossomed into a flower in the East Village,” is now based in South Williamsburg. On April 15, the second season of his cooking face-off, Knife Fight, premieres on Esquire Network.
If you ever dreamed of using the same bong as Action Bronson, now’s your chance! The Queens-based rapper stopped by i-vape on St. Marks yesterday, perhaps to pick up some supplies for his forthcoming tour with Eminem.
Smart Crew, the underground graffiti group that came out of Queens in 1997, is teaming up with Adidas to put on its first public exhibition. But that doesn’t mean its members are revealing their identities. In the above cartoon portrait, even the familiar face of rapper Action Bronson is pixelated. And in the below video teaser for “Smart Fools,” opening tomorrow at Fool’s Gold in Williamsburg, there’s some serious cloak-and-dagger action going on.
A lot is happening uptown at Hudson Yards, the so-called “neighborhood of the future.” This week alone, developers unveiled the installations by Frank Stella and other artists that will be displayed across the site’s building lobbies, and it was announced that restaurateur Danny Meyer would open a 3,000-square-foot, 121-seat all-day cafe on the ground floor of The Shed, the arts center and concert hall due to open this spring with productions by Björk, Steve Reich and others. The Danny Meyer project joins others by A-list chefs like David Chang, Thomas Keller, and José Andrés.

In case you didn’t hear, Nordic food is all the rage these days. Unfortunately, because of its associations with hoity-toity Noma, it’s often quite expensive. A meal at the wonderful Aska in Williamsburg will run you $175 and up. That’s why my experience of Nordic food is mostly limited to doing the vodka shots with herring chasers they serve at North Pole Pub, near the Barclays Center. TOTALLY worth the pickled fish breath. Anyway, embrace these upcoming opportunities to experience Nordic cuisine without blowing so much money that you have to shop at Ikea for the rest of your life.
We’re still recovering from Panorama— maybe we spent too much time in the VR dome, but things still haven’t stopped spinning. But duty calls: The Meadows, from the folks behind Governors Ball, is right around the corner– it’s bringing acts like Jay-Z, Weezer, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Run the Jewels, Gorillaz, and many more to CitiField from Sept. 15 to 17.
There’s some news coming out of camp Meadows today: first off, some more tickets have just been released for the Action Bronson show that the fest is presenting at Webster Hall tonight– the storied venue’s last blast before it gets a revamp from its new owners, AEG.
History was in the air Saturday night as Skrillex shook Webster Hall on its final club night. Two and half decades after the Toronto-based Bollinger brothers bought the East Village venue, they’re selling it AEG Presents, who will renovate the Hall over the next two years. The torch passing has meant some incredible shows, like Nine Inch Nails on July 31 and the just-announced surprise finale, Action Bronson on Thursday.
