EaterWire: Ludo's wife, MetaKnife, Brad Johnson back on the scene

· Now that former Bastide chef Ludovic Lefebvre is out of work, someone has to bring home the, er, fish. So his lawyer wife Kristine is a contestant on season 6 of "The Apprentice," which was filmed in LA earlier this year. [Futon Critic]

· Today, Variety's The Knife debuts MetaKnife, restaurant reviews that "go heavy on the facts, easy on the adjectives." Up first? The little wine bar that could, Bin 8945. [The Knife]

· A tipster says that the former Black Sea space on Fairfax is in escrow to Brad Johnson where he will do another concept, but we're not sure what it is yet. Refresher: Johnson opened the Roxbury way back when—yes, the "Night at the Roxbury" Roxbury—and was involved with the Sunset Room and Windows downtown. [EaterWire Inbox]

· The cupcake craze will never subside: "The old Cake and Art on Santa Monica Blvd now full CUPCAKE BAR!!! It blows Sprinkles away. I just happened to be walking by this morning.....saw the displays and decided to go in....of course I walked out with 6 cupcakes." Trans fat ban be damned. [EaterWire Inbox]

· An FOE writes in: "Authentic Café is being converted to Terroni, an Italian-type place, that someone on Chowhound mentioned is from Toronto. Paper is on the windows as work is already afoot." [EaterWire Inbox]
