A Sarcastic Appetite

Restaurant Round-Up for the Week of August 6

Need I even write it? You know the drill: I’m here on Thursdays to canvass the foodblogs so you don’t have to. Here are some highlights:

In case you spent yesterday burrowed under a rock, the New York Times named Sam Sifton the new Restaurant Critic; Grub Street pulls together all the important details (like recent headshots!) just for you.

Hearth has been hosting some delicious Pig Roasts, and if the comments on Serious Eats are any indication, it’s a pretty good show they’ve got going on over there. It’ll set you back $42 per person, with an $18 optional wine or beer pairing, and they’ve added a couple extra dates due to the high demand. The next one is August 12; book now!

Scuderia now delivers…provided you live or work within the, ahem, narrowly defined delivery area. I, unfortunately, do not – but if you do, let me know. I travel very well, and I hear they do a decent pie….

Boqueria is celebrating its third anniversary like a good little recession-friendly restaurant these days: by giving you a free dish on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. More details here.

If you’re staying in and around the city this weekend, and are in search of an adventurous meal, take a page from the book blog of the Taxi Gourmet.

And lastly (but not leastly), don’t forget about Midtown Lunch’s Twitter Tracker!
