First night of Hanukkah which means latkes with home made Fuji apple sauce. Happy Hanukkah and Merry Christmas, hope everyone is having a healthy and a happy!
Epic meal at one of my favorite New York restaurants. On point in every way, sunchokes, crab and uni just one of the highlights. Thanks @gramercytavern @chefmikeanthony for the awesome hospitality.
Grid lock alert days mean abandoning the car and riding the train which allows me to deeply explore the offerings at the new food hall. Today was the Grain Bar for a souls satisfying bowl Warm grains and roast chicken. $10 how do they do it! 2 for 2 @greatnorthernfood @agernrestaurant
New dish alert! Coming to Ivan Ramen, king Trumpet Mushroom "Noodles" with roasted hazelnuts, shoyu tare and fragrant chili oil. Vegan and gluten free, so very delicious. Lots of new winter dishes coming.
While this looks like a photo I put in a frame it's actually what was underneath my super cool poster of Woody Allen's Manhattan in Japanese located in the bathroom at Ivan Ramen. So to the douche bag who stole my prized pic, a kanahara, a curse on your head and if/when something horrible happens to you it's the bad karma you created by taking something that didn't belong to you and was enjoyed by many. Unbelievable.
Enjoying one bright spot in my otherwise miserable day of canceled flights and grounding in the Windy City hanger. Thank god for Rick Bayless @rick_bayless
Here's looking at you kid! @lizbennonyc Suckling pig the Benno way. @jonathanbenno
Congratulations to @lizbennonyc for a big 40! The incomparable @richardcapizzi gets big props for the Pats carrot cake and of courses JB @jonathanbenno for pulling off this spectacular party! @lincolnristorante got real style!!
Sanma (Japanese Pike) Onigiri at Sakagura, so good!! Started going here when they opened and it only gets better. Sick sake selection, on point Izakaya fare and in the bowels of an office building, Tokyo style magic! @sakagurany @sakura_yagi
Smorrebrod at the Nordic food hall. Super fresh and delicious for $8 each which felt like a good deal. Steak tartare and eggs and Shrimp, great snack in the middle of a train station! @agernrestaurant
Love cold udon, even when it's freezing outside. Nice to have straight up udon in NYC, makes me realize I'm overdue for a trip home! @tsurutontanusa #japan #udon #noodles
No parking on the UWS didn't stop us from getting a bowl of noodles at Xian Famous, we just ate it in the car! Perfect as always, they do such a great job! @xianfoods
Can't say enough about my dinner at the Beatrice Inn. Everything was on point from the service to the cocktails and the food. Possibly the best duck preparation I've had, put it at the top of your list. Thanks Angie and the team for over the top hospitality!! @angiekmar
Sometimes you have to admit you made a mistake, and so as of tomorrow the Tofu Coney Island will be back on the menu, a popular and terrific dish that's vegan to boot!
R&D! Coming soon, Spicy Chicken Sesame Noodle (Tantan Men). Really nice, all chicken for the pork shy folks but no compromises!
Shoyu ramen heavily loaded! Dreary weather sunny food, come in and stay awhile.
Construction starts today on Corner Slice at Gotham Market, which means it's time to start hiring! Looking for a head baker, a kitchen manager and a lead barista. Send a resume and a note to firstname.lastname@example.org
It's official! I will be opening Corner Slice with my two pals @corner_slice @davidporan in the Gotham West Market where Blue Bottle will be vacating. We will be reimagining the coffee shop, with solid coffee offerings using La Colombe coffee, all day nosh (sandwiches, pastries, desserts) and grandma pie by the slice and by the pie. Cold fermentation dough, house pulled mozz, real deal and we aim to fly humble in this pizza town. Can't wait!
Home cooking. Tonkatsu swimming in egg and dashi, family style Katsudon. Righteous!!
