The Weekend Guide

david bouley brushstroke new york!

We’re turning Japanese. We really think so.

Brushstroke Opens
Grab the corner booth in David Bouley’s Zen den (a collaboration with Osaka’s Tsuji Cooking Academy all-stars) and gaze into the pint-size izakaya scene (pictured) built into the wall of books.
Why: Of the 10,000(!) dishes rumored to have been developed, we’re craving the sencha leaf-smoked duck and chawanmushi (egg custard layered with Dungeness crab and black truffle sauce).
When: Mon.-Sat., 5:30-10 p.m.
Where: 30 Hudson St., at Duane St. (212-791-3771).

Black Watch
The National Theatre of Scotland’s heart-pounding account of the renowned infantry battalion’s time in Iraq — complete with wind sprints, thunderous overhead attacks, and soldiers who knife their way out of a pool table.
Why: It’s one of the more thrilling and athletic bits of theater we’ve ever witnessed.
When: Thru May 7.
Where: St. Ann’s Warehouse, 38 Water St., at Dock St., Dumbo. Tickets ($60 and up) at 718-254-8779 or online at stannswarehouse.org.

The Raveonettes
Get swept off your feet by the dark, melodic currents washing through the band’s latest album, Raven in the Grave.
Why: “War in Heaven” makes our heads spin (in a good way).
When: Tonight, 9 p.m. Email raveonettes@vicerecords.com to win one of two pairs of tickets.
Where: Music Hall of Williamsburg, 66 N. 6th St., b/t Kent & Wythe Aves., Williamsburg (718-486-5400).

We’re Gonna Die
Backed by her all-dude band, Future Wife, pro envelope pusher Young Jean Lee recounts familiar childhood memories (and sings catchy tunes) around themes of loneliness, fear, and death.
Why: The Obie Award-winning playwright’s tale about the child ad exec and the husband murderer is a must-listen.
When: Thru Apr. 30.
Where: Joe’s Pub, 425 Lafayette St., at Astor Pl. (212-967-7555). Tickets ($25-$30) online at joespub.com.

Ecolux Designer Pop-Up
The GreenShows round up earth-friendly designs from The Sway, Samantha Pleet, Study NY, Suzanne Rae, and more to help you shop what you preach.
Why: Don’t kid yourself; buying green does more for the environment than rewatching FernGully.
When: Thurs. & Fri., 10 a.m.-9 p.m.; Sat., 10 a.m.-8 p.m.
Where: Bloomingdale’s Soho, 504 Broadway, b/t Spring & Broome Sts., 5th flr. (212-729-5900).

Spring Egg Festival
What: French restaurants across the city plate tributary dishes like cured pork lomo eggs Benedict (Marseille) and fried ostrich egg pizza (L’Express).

When: Thru Apr. 29.
Where: Find participating restaurants online at tourdefrancenyc.com.
