A Sarcastic Appetite

Restaurant Round-up for the week of May 7

I canvass the food blogs so you don’t have to. Here are some highlights:

Hotly anticipated restaurant opening of the week: Table 8, in the Cooper Square Hotel. Details here.

Recession Special: Belcourt has a new Oyster Hour, from 4 to 7pm on weeknights. Half a dozen are yours for $10 and select cocktails for $5, via the Eater Dealfeed.

I love sandwiches and I love lunch, so of course I loved Midtown Lunch’s Sandwich Challenge. And as a result, I now love Certe, on 55th between 5th and 6th. Ok, ok, it’s not a restaurant, but that doesn’t matter; go there now. They just added their newest creation: a Mexican Torta. And then go on Thursday for the Thanksgiving Dip, and then on Friday for the Primavera…

A new Vietnamese place, An Choi, opens in the East Village, though I highly doubt I’ll darken its doorway anytime soon. Sorry – it lacks a liquor license.

Oh yeah, and if you hadn’t noticed, we’re in a bit of an economic slump these days, and restaurants are taking note…with their wine lists. Here are some tips for ordering wine in a restaurant – or bringing your own, thanks to the New York Post.
