we told you that the national chain Bonefish Grill was gearing up to open it's first branch in NYC. Well fans of the chain can head over to State Island, because it opened earlier this week. It will have all the standard Bonefish offerings, and specials like Bang Wednesday, when the signature Bang Bang Shrimp will be only $5. If you want to see what this seafood joint is all about, you can stop by at 280 Marsh Ave. (718-761-5628).
Noodle fans should mark their calendars - on September 12 Noodlepalooza will take over the World Finanical Center to dish out plates of noodles and dumplings for less than $5 a pop. The event takes place from 11 AM to 2 PM and will feature bites from purveyors like Blue Smoke (macaroni 'n' cheese) and Cheong Fun (rice crepe noodles). Get more info here, and prepare to crazily exclaim "oodles of noodles!" when you hit the event.
