THE CHEFS:

Alex Stratta takes over Elements Kitchen & Bar: Can he resuscitate a moribund location known for its under-performing kitchen?

Luciano Pellegrini becomes top toque at Marche Bacchus: Will he turn this floundering fan favorite into a top trattoria?

Wilfried Bergerhausen moves to Le Cirque: Will “The Circus” see more currywurst? We doubt it, this kraut may look like a kid, but he has major chops.

Angelo Sosa poops out at Poppy Den: Interesting food plus terrible service just couldn’t cut the mustard at Tivoli Village.

And for those of you looking to up your drinking game this weekend, here are my favorite watering holes:
