A Sarcastic Appetite

Restaurant Round-Up for the Week of June 18

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

Pete Wells makes the case for some serious drinking at Mayahuel. Apparently the “tight quarters discourage rowdiness,” but I’d be willing to give it the old varsity try if you are…

Alto in Midtown just opened an outdoor café – not that you can really enjoy it in this weather.

From the Eater Dealfeed: Allegretti enters the Recession Ring throwing punches. Their new drink deal? Half off all wine and cocktails, daily from 5pm to 7pm on weekdays, not to mention a new $39 three course prix fixe.

If you missed the Big Apple Barbecue, either on purpose or otherwise, fork over for a ticket to the James Beard Foundation’s Legends of Barbecue dinner in August. Tickets are a cool $165, but let’s face it: you can’t put a price on Ed manhandling an entire hog, not to mention the okra poppers and hush puppies I spy on the menu…

More drink deals from the Eater Dealfeed: Allen & Delancey rolls out a new $25 cocktail pitcher for weekend brunches – the selection will change weekly, according to bartender Alex Day’s whims.

UWS newcomer Bar Luna’s opening is delayed until next week; word on the street is the chef went AWOL. Hopefully new chef Jacques Belanger will stick it out at least through the opening party….
