A Sarcastic Appetite

Hey there kiddos, it’s me again, here to canvass the food blogs so you don’t have to. A few highlights:

Danny Meyer’s Maialino opened last night, and everyone’s all up in a ruckus about it. The name of the restaurant, you’ll recall, means “little pig” – and don’t kid yourself; the menu makes room for a suckling pig for 2.

Another restaurant opening, this time in the East Village, brings us the Mermaid Oyster Bar. Oh hooray, kids – now we have a new seafood joint in the hood! Wait a minute.

Down in Miami, Lee Klein takes issue with Mr. Chow in one of the more memorable restaurant review I’ve read in awhile. Granted, the restaurant in question isn’t in Manhattan – but its sister location is. And it’s certainly more entertaining than the Snoozing Sifter’s 1 star review of Le Relais de-Veniszzzzzzz. Speaking of Sifton, it seems he perked up a bit this week, laying down the law and only awarding 1 star to Charlie Palmer’s Aureole, in the new Bank of America building. I’d say read the review, if only to catch the money quote: “At every table someone’s either shouting or lap dancing his phone.” What?

In other news, the UES’s Etats-Unis has closed; Patty and Bun, a new burger joint in the West Village, sets up shop; and the UWS’s Dovetail expands (but not because the litle old lady living next door died).

And if you are looking for a new place to check out for a cocktail or three, apparently you need to try the new Yerba Buena Perry. I’m mostly interested in saying “Chupacabra” all night long…
