Momofuku’s Williamsburg Milk Bar

Just caught wind of this development in Willy B. I’m definitely a fan of David Chang and his pork-driven empire. I will be Chasing down these pork buns tomorrow, and trying some of Christina Tosi’s Milk Bar creations.

La Esquina exudes authenticity, granted my only reference is limited to my one Mexican friend Hector; however, this feels real and the ingredients have an identity. So often “Mexican food” is just multiple takes on a bean and rice mash-up. … Continue reading

Peter Luger and the Porterhouse Breakdown

Firstly, we made sure that Gabbie changed into her Chanel ballet flats,and stowed her soggy sneakers. Two whiskeys and sodas and Mr. and Mrs. Vener were swept away to their quiet table in the corner, by the coat rack, and the handicap bathroom. The dark wood paneling, and quintessential Teuonic- ( refers to the germanic people) styled parlor rooms were completely exposed by the solar capacity of the 1,000 watt chandeliers. In this light the room lacked all it’s possible charming qualities, similar to visiting a dive bar in the light of day. This sort of lighting is neither flattering nor nice.

I have never lost a bet to a Montenegran man (Danny), and I’m not about to start.

In a state of flub after having eaten the entire rear quarter of a cow, I realized my personal achievement that night. I had finished the Porterhouse for two, hooray! I won the bet. This is up there with going to school in Paris, and traveling to Niger. This moment evolved into me escaping to the bathroom for an immediate yet foreseen bowel movement. Upon returning from the bathroom, I’m confused and leery of the smirk on Mrs. Vener’s painted face. Was I in the bathroom too long? I shirked over to the table to examine the dry T-bone on the center of the table. It dawned on me that I had been tricked, from Mrs. Vener I could expect this- but from Danny?! That swatch of meat in the crook of the bone had been discovered, exhumed and brought into the light, literally. I had deliberately avoided that bit, too full, too proud. A bet is a bet however, I have learned that from my grandmother. Alas, I tongue and toothed that sinuous bit until only a rubbery fishnet of tough fat remained. I’m a winner dammit. Christmas eve dinner=success.

Suckling Pig Feast at Daniel Boulud’s DBGB Kitchen & Bar

“The restaurant now offers a lavish spread, to feed as many as eight,centered on a whole suckling pig from DeBragga & Spitler, roasted…and stuffed with sausage.

The feast starts with head cheese, followed by the pig and its entourage, consisting of white and red sauerkraut, truffled brussels sprouts, and a gratin of potatoes, Gruyère and Swiss chard. Guests will be awash in an unlimited river of beer selections and then served baked Alaska”.

This is the kind of meal where you have to call ahead into work, and explain that you’ll be ill in the morning and therefore will not be making it in; however, don’t let this be a deterrent. They’ll understand.

Not only does the meal consist of head cheese, sausage stuffed suckling pig, all the creamiest, most filling side dishes you could want, and unlimited beer, but it also ends with a Baked Alaska. That is so over-the-top.

Needless to say I am looking for seven able individuals to join me.
