A Sarcastic Appetite

Restaurant Round-Up for the Week of August 13

Hey kiddies, it’s me again, here to canvass the foodblogs so you don’t have to. A few highlights:

TONY rounds up all the restaurant reviews this week; in a shocking twist, the Brunster gives four stars to Danny Meyer’s Eleven Madison Park where before there were only three! Also, in case you were wondering, Eater rounds up the six four-spots Bruni’s bestowed during his tenure at the NY Times; gosh it’s lonely at the top.

Pete Wells gets all hot and flustered over Brooklyn Brewery’s newest beer in the works that features – you guessed it – bacon, and mulls over the fact that odds are the kids at Brooklyn Bowl will be hearing about it first. This obviously means you should check it out over there – it’s amazing.

If you were me, you read the rumor that David Chang was bringing his Momofuku empire to Midtown in a matter of weeks and imagined yourself collapsing into a pool of pork buns. (So dreamy.) To be sure, it was a rumor, yes, but one that turned out to be true. The only problem? I’ll actually need to stay at the Chambers Hotel and dial up Tien Ho for some room service; the restaurant won’t begin full service until later in the fall.

Ruh-roh: my favorite bar in New York that I haven’t even been to yet got knocked around at a Noisy Bars meeting on 13th Street. Guess I better get there sooner rather than later…

A quick list from the NY Times of what’s set to open, both now and in the coming weeks and months.
