From the Neighborhood Restaurant Group:

“I wanted to let you know we’ve partnered with Matt Adler to develop the 65-seat stand-alone restaurant that will open adjacent to The Roost. Caruso’s Grocery will be modeled after the classic, Italian-American “red sauce” joint; it’s very important to Matt and us as a team to not reinvent the wheel with this concept, but instead to focus on making the best possible versions of classic Italian-American dishes.

This just came across the Hill East listserv:

“A man was observed chopping down a neighborhood tree this morning with a full sized axe.
When I asked him to stop from my 2nd floor porch he ran at my building threatening me and my dogs with the axe.
He has been outside my building watching us ever since and followed one of the other residents from the building to his uber, where he threatened that person, telling him that he knew where we lived.

For the next hour he kept throwing a bike into traffic on 17th st, trying to cause an accident.

Police were contacted, did a drive by, and then did nothing else. Read More
