Waldorf Astoria Goes Green With Bees, Indian Restaurant Devi Shutters

Welcome to the Waldorf
Some new tenants are going to take up residency in the famed Waldorf Astoria Hotel - 45,000 of them to be precise. The property is bringing in honey bees this April. The critters will check into a 20th floor rooftop space, and the property will harvest their honey for use in the property's restaurants. They are reportedly going to put a garden into the same space, but the bees are going to be the first new residents to move in. Apparently a few guest rooms will have a view of the hives, and the property will offer to show folks around their on-site honey production - we just suggest folks staying in those rooms keep screens on their windows.

There's also some news coming out of Midtown today, where Indian restaurant Devi announced it has shuttered. The eatery, which was one of our top-rated Indian restaurants in the city, featured cuisine by chef Suvir Saran. The location will reportedly convert into a branch of Indian chain Baluchi's.
