Eolo in Manhattan's Chelsea 'hood is hosting a Sicilian "Feast for the Senses" this Sunday, May 18th, between 3-6pm. Melissa Muller Daka, who helms the restaurant, will be celebrating a much anticipated spring with Sicilian-inspired dishes that include antipasti, pastas, entrees, desserts and a three hour open bar with Sicilian wines, all served table-side. Live Sicilian folk music by Allison Scola and her group Villa Palagonia will set the tune for the afternoon. Go to for more info; for reservations, call 646-225-6606.

In en plein air news: New York magazine's online Grub Street feature created a list of where to eat out of doors (such as Amanda Freitag's Empire Diner) that I found to be most newsworthy. The link is here. Take a deep, fresh breath and do enjoy!
