Fits and starts in the Fifth Avenue restaurant scene. It turns out Baluchi's is not quite open for business, Gowanus Lounge reports, but the folks at Playa (Web site not yet live; try on Monday) did indeed fire up the grill last night. The owners, also responsible for Barrio and the newly open Cabana Bar, sent us these photos. If you go, please report back.
