New & Noteworthy

Seeing a snowflake in the forecast this week, a brasserie with leather banquettes and an ode-to-Barbuto chicken with Balthazar-inspired fries on the menu seems like just the creature comfort that the doctor would order. You can find all this at Le Crocodile at the Wythe Hotel in Brooklyn, which opened last week. At the helm are chefs Jake Leiber and Aidan O’Neal of Chez Ma Tante, and restaurateur Jon Neidich of Golden Age Hospitality (Acme, The Happiest Hour).

Also, Nami Nori gets reviewed by Pete Wells so I’ve added that review. I passed by it yesterday afternoon and see that it is now open for lunch (M-F, 11:30-2:30pm). Kampai!
