Outtake from “The Layover” with Eddie Huang on Lower East Side Nightlife

Posted on: December 1st, 2011 at 6:18 am by

The internets are seemingly abuzz about The Layover, the new pilot series on the Travel Channel in which Anthony Bourdain spends 24 hours in various cities across the globe. Monday night was the premiere of episode number two, which features a look at New York City. The chef-host spends ample time visiting establishments on the Lower East Side with lightning-rod restaurateur Eddie Huang.

Now a bonus scene from the show was just unveiled on the official website. The segment, dubbed “Noodles for Thought on NYC,” features NY Noodletown, barely included in the original airing. We see Eddie Huang and friends (sans Bourdain) discussing the nightlife scene on the Lower East Side.  How Libation and Spitzer’s were game-changers, ruining nightlife for the locals (“you can’t go out Friday/Saturday…you just don’t wanna be caught in the neighborhood”). How Thursday through Saturday evenings are for people who don’t live here.

Struggling ‘Red Compass Lounge’ Downsizes on Orchard Street After 8 Months

Completion of Long-Delayed Pier 35 is Nowhere in Sight

“It’ll be at least another year before Pier 35 is finally complete,” read one of our headlines in July 2015. Those words still ring true today, as there really aren’t any updates to speak of. So, here we are, more than five years behind schedule with nothing to show for it except a footbridge, half-built […]
