A Sarcastic Appetite

Restaurant Round-Up for the Week of January 14

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

I’m quietly crying over news that my favorite awkward lunch dude is abandoning us for L.A. It’ true – Zack Brooks of Midtown Lunch is jumping ship. He claims it’s because his wife is taking a job there, but I’m not buying it. He’s going for the In-N-Out burgers, I just know it.

Choptank, formerly in the Bar Q space, opened this week. It’s supposed to be a Maryland-style seafood shack, as opposed to a New England one, but the dinner menu makes me think it’s a fairly swanky shack. I spy bone marrow and arctic char, though nothing seems to be over $25….aside from the oysters, of course.

Saunter on over to Mayahuel this Sunday and get your Sunday Funday started off on the right note: they’re doing $1 tacos and $10 cocktails from 2pm onward.

UrbanDaddy has the rundown on Wall & Water, the new joint in the Andaz Wall Street Hotel on….you guessed it, while Thrillist graces us with news of Recette, the former private dining club gone public.

And boom: Ma Pêche launches an online ordering system for takeout. We only have 3 banh mi options, and you’ve got to order by 11 the day of…but that’s 3 more banh mi you don’t have to eat in a hotel lobby.

The Sifster gives a one-spot to The Breslin, Ken Friedman and April Bloomfield’s homage to a British gastropub. The food’s good he says….just excessive. And apparently he’s been lying in bed at 3am in a cold sweat over it.

Don’t forget: Restaurant Week starts the 25th (and goes through Feb 7th). Book your table now. Oh yeah, and you-know-what is one month from today. Better book that table now too, while you’re at it.
