A Sarcastic Appetite

Restaurant Round-Up for the Week of October 15

You know the drill: I’m here to canvass the food blogs, so you don’t have to. A few highlights this week:

The restaurant of this five minutes that everyone’s wetting themselves over? The Breslin, brought to you by the peeps behind The Spotted Pig (April Bloomfield, also of the now shuttered John Dory, and Ken Friedman, in case you’re keeping score), in the relatively recently opened Ace Hotel. It’s set for soft open this weekend. Uh-oh, you’re looking faint. Do you need a paper bag?

A thing or two from the Eater NY Wire: DB Bistro Moderne’s doing a 3 course dinner with wine pairing for $65, and Ed of Ed’s Lobster Bar fame has revamped his wine list. (In case you’re wondering, his lobster roll makes it to Citysearch’s Top Ten List, but fans seem to prefer the original, at Pearl Oyster Bar.)

Sam Sifton, the new restaurant critic for the NY Times, weighs in on DBGB and gives it a warm 2 spot. After Pete Wells’ aggressive interim run, I think it’s safe to say everyone’s breathing a sigh of relief.

Meanwhile, Robert Sietsema’s busy bringing the smackdown to the Village Voice; commenters took issue with his omitting Terroir from the recent Top Ten Wine Bars…and it just gets uglier from there. Boozy NYC has the highlights.

Oh, no, my pirate-midget-loving friends. Oh. No. It appears Champagne Tuesdays at Superdive are not the bubbly-fueled revelry we had all hoped and wished for. Consider yourself warned.

Ardesia, from Mandy Oser (Director of Strategic Partnerships at Le Bernardin, thankyouverymuch), just opened with a pretty straight-forward menu: pork belly bites, duck banh mi, pretzels….it’s on Tenth Avenue, but should be worth the hike.

And…BOOM: David Chang’s newest iteration of Momofuku in Midtown has officially been christened Ma Pêche.
