The Plywood Report: Vino 313, B Cafe, Butter Lane, Bespoke Chocolates

1) East Village: Kathryn Yu gets a shot of the signage at Butter Lane, a new dessert spot—remember we already have the new Lula's and the relatively new Chickalicious Dessert Club—in the East Village. This one will specialize in cupcakes and is located at 125 East 7th St. [PLYWOOD]

2) Upper West Side: Eating in Translation has an update on B. Cafe: "That's 'B' as in 'Belgian brasserie,' which you'd guess at once if you perused the two sets of taps that will dispense Leffe, Palm, Le Chouffe, Maredsous, and a half-dozen other brews. Look for the beer to begin flowing in two weeks, according to a fellow working on the interior." [PLYWOOD]

3) Murray Hill: Miss Menu has some intel on a new Murray Hill space: "Vino 313 is hoping to appeal to a 30-something crowd with its upscale, sophisticated atmosphere. It will definitely be a welcomed addition to a frat bar-saturated area! The bar's name is taken from its location at East 31st Street and Third Avenue." [PLYWOOD]

4) East Village: The Feed Blog reports that Union Square Cafe alum Rachel Zoe Insler will open Bespoke Chocolates this November in the new development in the alley behind the former CBGB, at 6 Extra Place. [PLYWOOD] For more stories from Eater, go to
