A Sarcastic Appetite

Restaurant Round-Up for the Week of October 1

You know the drill: I’m here to canvass the food blogs, so you don’t have to. Yeah, yeah, it’s a day late and a dollar short. Whatever – I know you’re still into it. So, some highlights:

Carnival, above Bowlmor Lanes, is set to open October 8. What little I’ve read about the place sounds so absurd, I think I should just leave it at that and let you find out for yourself.  As far as I know there won’t be midgets dressed as pirates serving Champagne…but that could change.

Pete Wells gives a lonely onesie to The Standard Grill, and Serious Eaters get up in arms about it.

Joseph Leonard just opened on Waverly Place – by the guy who used to run Market Table and Little Owl. The food’s still a bit uneven, but maybe we’ll just let it slide.

Michelin just came out with its list of “Bib Gourmand” – Cheap Eats – and it appears the Frogs haven’t been asleep at the wheel. Ok, ok, so maybe a lot of them will look pretty familiar, and maybe we could have come up with this list ourselves, but still – it’s a good effort.

Best review I’ve read all week: the boys over at Immaculate Infatuation love what Jonathan Waxman’s doing at Barbuto. So what are you waiting for? Get after it!

Ems- did you ever see the movie Flushed Away?? The bad guy is a frog overlord of the sewer system, and he hires his cousin- A frenchman- and his team of ninja-mimes to go after the good guys (played by hugh jackman and kate winslet- they’re mice).
Anyway, so your bit about Michelin made me think of this scene when they’re getting ready to go after the mice:
Head frog: Go get them!
Head Frenchie: We will leave immediately!
Ninja Mimes: …eh, but what about di-nner?!
Head French: We leave…in five hours!!
