Be the breadwinner

Every year, the French throw La Fete du Pain to celebrate the crusty, buttery, carb-a-licious bread that they enjoy with just about every meal. Now, the party comes to the States at Maison Kayser (1294 Third Ave., 212-744-3100). Beginning Monday, the bistro will offer a different, limited-edition bread through Sunday. We’re mostly excited about Tuesday’s Brie Bread, a buttery and salty variety from Normandy.

Happy birthday, Scarpetta!

Tonight’s the last night you can take advantage of Scott Conant’s special menu in honor of his eatery’s fifth birthday. The four-course anniversary menu will include Scarpetta classics like spiced duck breast with fava beans and Conant’s spaghetti with tomato and basil. Each course will be paired with a complimentary wine flight of 2-ounce pours. $65, 355 W. 14th St., 212-691-0555

“21” Club

Amali (115 E. 60th St., 212-339-8363) just kicked off 21 Days of Rosé, where through May 28 they’ll offer a different rosé every night of the week, as well as a special rosé-paired dinner. Deals include Mediterranean by-the-glass rosés for $10, half-pours for $5 and bottles for $35 with a gratis chef’s pairing.
