Manhattan Restos in Powerless Zone Breaking Out the Grills

"Make it work" seems to be the motto of restaurants in the Powerless Zone. We noticed that Old Homestead was grilling up burgers yesterday in the Meatpacking District, and now we hear that Il Buco Alimentari are opening for lunch today. Not only is the NoHo eatery firing up the grills on a powerless strip, they are preparing some pretty impressive dishes. Octopus with shaved fennel and orange and roasted chicken with little gem lettuce isn't exactly a MRE ration. They will also serve wine and beer in plastic cups, the service starts at noon and goes to 6 PM.

Eater notices a similar spread at Balthazar, which has broken out the charcoal and is cooking up delicious looking steak sandwiches.
