COPENHAGEN— At this year's MAD Symposium, Lucky Peach editor Chris Ying and carbon emissions specialist Peter Freed led a panel investigating the restaurant industry's impact on climate change. Noma's René Redzepi and Frankies Spuntino's Frank Falcinelli and Frank Castronovo offered their restaurants as case studies to determine their carbon footprints and energy emissions, compared to at-home cooking (Noma creates 27.4 kg of carbon dioxide per diner, compared to 8.5 kg at Frankie's). The whole thought-provoking talk is available now on Vimeo; do give it a watch. [MADFeed]

NEW YORK CITY— In the latest episode of Bizarre Foods America, intrepid host Andrew Zimmern explores the late-night dining options in New York City, which includes a visit to Brooklyn's Acme Smoked Fish, known as the "Fort Knox of Fish." Eater NY has video of Zimmern's trip, which includes a step-by-step of Acme's lox-making process. [Eater NY]

MASSACHUSETTS— Chef Tim Maslow's buzzy Brookline restaurant ribelle will host fellow Momofuku alum James Mark (of Providence's north) for a special five-course New Year's Eve dinner. Citing the number eight as a lucky one in Chinese culture, the dinner will be served family-style exclusively to tables of eight (though parties of all sizes are welcome). Reservations are $180 for two and available here. [EaterWire]
