A Sarcastic Appetite

Restaurant Round-Up for the Week of July 23

I do hope my valiant efforts at blogging this week make up for the pitiful lack thereof the last several. Regardless, my cherubs, I’m here as usual today to canvass the foodblogs so you don’t have to. Here are some highlights:

Ed Levine of Serious Eats does a write-up of a breakfast cart right in my hood that sounds so good I’m actually excited for the next time I wake up absurdly late and need to get breakfast near the office. No, that wasn’t today, but thanks for asking.

Wined & Dined, as usual, has a nice round-up of the Recession Specials featured at higher-end restaurants like Asiate (3 courses for $45!) and Lupa (late night 3 courser for only $26!). Full list is here.

The Brun-Dog bestows a nice 2-spot on Andrew Carmellini’s Locanda Verde, in the old Ago space, but insists the chef “isn’t yet hitting his stride.”

The Feedbag throws out a rumor that Thomas Keller is opening a new restaurant sometime in the fall. Reps deny it, but Curbed gets after it, eyeing none other than Jean Nouvel’s 100 Eleventh as a genuine possibility. Stay tuned….

Unsurprisingly, Twitter is turning out to be the most efficient place to find on-the-ground reviews during Restaurant Week. Eater rounds up a few of them; if you want to join in on the fun, just add #nycrw to your tweets.
