Part 2

Farm to Asian street food is the gist of the new restaurant Lucky Bee, helmed by Matty Bennett, formerly of Fat Radish. When it opens next month, the temperatures will have cooled, but we'll still want to order this dish of smashed cucumber, green mango, dill pickles, coconut milk, fried shallot, and roasted Thai chilis.

St. Marks Is Dead: The Many Lives of America's Hippest Street by Ada Calhoun, makes the case that it's also the country's most fascinating street. Calhoun, who was born and raised on St. Mark's Place, does a superb job of telling the street's story. Out November 2.

Fashion icon and muse Jacqueline de Ribes gets a Costume Institute full-splash exhibit, showing dozens of pieces from de Ribes' own wardrobe. It can be fairly said that she brought as much elegance to the clothing as the clothing brought to her. Opens November 19.

Clifford John Usher and Lindsay Pitts, the D.C. duo who perform as GEMS, have a Massive Attack vibe, for purposes of shorthand. A couple of years ago, Buzzfeed called them "the best new band you've never heard." They have a new album, Kill the One You Love, due next month and they play the Bowery Ballroom on October 26.

We've been fans of neuroscientist David Eagleman since his book Sum: Forty Tales from the Afterlives. PBS has him on for a 6-episode series titled The Brain with David Eagleman, beginning next month. Our kind of must-see TV.
