Sushi in Chelsea

Tuesday, July 31, 2007

Lon’s new office at Linkstorm is in Chelsea so we were planning on trying Monster Sushi Monster Sushi for lunch but they’re closed for renovations until September 4th. We walked around the corner and spotted Hana Sushi Hana Sushi . It was pretty crowded so we gave it a shot. We both got the Sashimi […]

Clemente’s Maryland Crabhouse

Sunday, July 29, 2007

This Maryland style waterfront crabhouse is actually in Brooklyn. It is a bit tough to find but well worth the effort. My friend Anthony told me about Clemente’s Maryland Crabhouse Clemente’s Maryland Crabhouse a few days ago and when I shared the info with Lon and my parents, we didn’t hesitate to check it out […]

Tap Water is Good Water

Friday, July 27, 2007

No wonder we like Aquafina… PepsiCo announced that Aquafina is, in fact, just tap water. I have no problem with that– I love tap water. However, I still prefer Poland Spring.

Cafe Fiorello

Friday, July 27, 2007

You’d think that Cafe Fiorello Cafe Fiorello would be a tourist trap since it’s across from Lincoln Center, but it’s actually got great food. After attending the last night of Midsummer Night Swing, we headed over for dinner.
The table of 5 shared 2 appetizers. The prosciutto with melon was delicious. Fresh melon, expertly sliced meat, […]

Happy Birthday to… me. At Del Posto!

Thursday, July 26, 2007

For my birthday, Jessica treated me to a wonderful dinner at Del Posto Del Posto. For those of you who aren’t in the know, Del Posto is Lidia and (her son) Joe Bastianich’s and Mario Batali’s largest (at least fiscally-speaking) venture. About two weeks ago, Jessica grabbed reservations on OpenTable and let them know it […]

Korean Fried Chicken

Tuesday, July 24, 2007

Over the years, I’ve lost interest in reading the generic food articles written up in most newspapers and magazines. The same subjects get re-used over and over again, while restaurant reviews are not honest (pumping up whoever is paying top advertising dollars), and the recipes are either old or untested.
My friend Andy sent me this […]

Peking Duck Forest

Monday, July 23, 2007

Peking Duck Forest Peking Duck Forest is surprisingly authentic. Located by the Austin Street shopping area in Forest Hills, you’d think it was one of those typical Chinese restaurants with the Lo Mein, General Tso’s, and Chicken with Broccoli. While those dishes are also offered, you can also get the real stuff if you know […]

Oscar’s at Waldorf Astoria

Saturday, July 21, 2007

My boss took me to lunch at Oscar’s Oscar’s for a break from the heat (our office had no air conditioning as a result of the steam pipe explosion on 43rd Street). They do a good job maintaining a cool temperature without being freezing like most air conditioned restaurants.
Each table is given a basket of […]

Bryggen Kaviar

Saturday, July 21, 2007

The incredibly poor quality image to the right is that of a tube of special caviar made cod fish. Normally, cod (and it’s subsequent family members haddock, whiting, and pollock) are considered mild flavored (a.k.a. tasteless) fish. How so then is their roe so damn delicious!?
It turns out that by curing the roe and […]

In-n-Out in NYC

Thursday, July 19, 2007

We received a request (in the form of a comment from DelectaBILL) to find out if the rumors about In-N-Out Burger (founded by the late Esther Synder) coming to NYC were true. Such rumors are being discussed on FlyerTalk, Goner Records, and on other blogs. So far, even, A Hamburger Today doesn’t know for sure.
So […]
