A Sarcastic Appetite

Restaurant Round-Up for the Week of November 5

I’m here to canvass the food blogs, so you don’t have to. Let’s take a gander at some of the highlights this week, shall we?


Here’s the round-up of early reviews from all the kids who got their panties in a twist over newly-opened The Breslin, in the Ace Hotel. In case you’ve been living under a rock, the place has Ken Friedman and April Bloomfield of celebritard hotspot The Spotted Pig running things.

Fatty Crab Uptown is now joining the ranks of restaurants with a beefed up happy hour: Fatty Sliders, spicy chicken wings, and steamed buns are now $5 and under, weekdays from 4 – 7pm and 10pm on, according to Grub Street.

The Siftser gallantly bestows a one spot on Le Relais de Venise de l’Entrecôte, not that we really care since no one has any intention of actually going. The best part? Even the New York Times is bored with his review – it’s still not posted in the Restaurant Review round-up on the Dining & Wine section’s homepage.

East Village staple Esperanto turns 10 – and to celebrate, they’re throwing a party on November 10. What’s this mean for you? Free drinks from 8 – 10pm, of course (and a party all night).

Ben Benson, meanwhile, extends his “Classic Steak House Dinner for Two” indefinitely. For $90, it’s not a bad deal at all.

Oh, and Eater continues to fine-tune the “Eater 38” – the 38 indispensable restaurants in New York right now. Topping the list, unsurprisingly, is Locanda Verde.

As a parting note: check out this video of David Letterman attempting to parse Guy Fieri’s choice adjectives. It’s money.
