Carly Simon Sues Starbucks, Paul Kahan Taqueria Details

LAWSUITS—Singer Carly Simon is suing Starbucks for $5 million to $10 million because her last album flopped, or something like that. She claims the coffee giant didn't promote her 2008 album enough via its (now-defunct) music division and that "her terrible sales were a result of Starbucks’s mismanagement." That's what you call taking responsibility for one's failures. [NYT]

CHICAGO—The latest fancy chef to go downscale is Paul Kahan of the nouveau Blackbird (pictured), who is opening a taqueria in BaylessTown, and his new project now has a name too: Big Star. [GS:C]

MEDIA—The Post makes an interesting observation about Bon Ap: "Browsing through the first half of Bon Appetit makes one realize how desperate the food publishing industry is. It's become all about selling stuff. What gets us is that some of it doesn't even have anything to do with food. Wishbone necklace, anyone? How about a $500 bottle of vanilla cologne?" [NYP]
