St. Regis Opens The King Cole Bar and Salon: The St. Regis Hotel summons thoughts of extravagantly-priced rooms and proper afternoon tea service. While the hotel will undoubtedly maintain its upscale vibe, the debut of The King Cole Bar and Salon brings on a breath of modernity with chef and restaurateur John DeLucie overseeing the food. The menu leans toward Italian with a Mediterranean nod here and there in the Salon, which is the main dining room. Not to be missed is King Cole Bar’s six takes on the Bloody Mary. 2 E. 55th St., 212-339-6857

Eat Like a Man to Benefit Movember: The second annual Eat Like a Man competition at NIOS restaurant at Kimpton’s The Muse hotel coincides with Movember to prove that men can eat like men, even if they're eating gourmet—read: no greasy burgers or fatty slabs of steak. Starting at 5:30 p.m. on Nov. 19, there will be a cocktail reception before NIOS chef Jarret Brodie takes on Danny Bortnick, who heads Kimpton’s culinary concepts, in a cook-off with a five-course meal. Guests will feast on crispy pork belly, roasted black cod, fresh diver scallops, and more. Tickets, $100 per person, with $20 going toward Movember men's health charities, can be purchased by calling NIOS. 130 W. 46th St., 212-485-2999

Team Behind Stinky Brklyn Opens Hops & Hocks: A selection of more than 200 international beers, an array of 100 flavors of charcuterie, and kits for making your own beer at home—these are a few of the offerings at the newly-opened Hops & Hocks in trendy Bushwick. This specialty shop offers artisanal products sure to please any connoisseur of beer and cured meats. Whether you want a growler to take home, a small batch brew, or a couple of beer-friendly cheeses, the bases have all been covered. 2 Morgan Ave., 718-456-4677

A Slice of Naples: Neapolitan pizzas could easily be considered New York-style pizza. The popularity of the thin-crust pies keeps growing and the latest opening is A Slice of Naples by Guilio Adriani, the owner of Forcella. Right now the menu is limited to classics like the margherita and other marinara-based pizzas topped with everything from mushrooms to spicy salami. As is common in the mother country, these oblong-shaped pies are sold al metro, aka by the meter. 334B Bowery, 212-466-3301
