A Sarcastic Appetite

Restaurant Round-Up for the Week of December 10

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

Zack Brooks of MidtownLunch gets all hot and bothered by the Siftster’s latest review on Mandangsui; even though he gives it a lone star, Zack is pumped to have someone at the Times who “eats like us.” I, meanwhile, am less than enthused about the Siftster’s take on Tipsy Parson, the new venture from the girls behind Little Giant – apparently the food is only so-so. Guess we should just stick to the cocktails.

The Guggenheim is opening a new restaurant on Friday called The Wright – and while it may not be able to surpass what Danny Meyer’s doing at the MoMa, it should be able to keep up: Rodolfo Contreras, late of Bouley and Town, is behind the stove.

My mother’s favorite Indian restaurant in Gramercy, Tamarind, opens a new outpost this month in Tribeca – an 11,000 sq. foot outpost, to be precise. Regardless of which location you grace, order the cauliflower: it’s the house specialty and it’s delicious.

Mona’s Apple says dinner at The Breslin is excellent – but if her experience is any indication, you better be willing to wait several hours for a table.

In a flurry of rumormongering, Eater NY says Scott Conant’s looking to take over the space of the disaster that was Table 8, though it won’t be another Scarpetta.
