A Sarcastic Appetite

Restaurant Round-Up for the Week of January 21

You all know the drill by this point: I’m here to canvass the foodblogs, so you don’t have to. Some highlights this week:

The newest food truck is going haute cuisine: Daniel Boulud’s manning one on February 8 as part of a publicity stunt to promote NBC’s new restaurant website.

Via Eater: Chowhounders are voicing misgivings about Robert Sietsema’s 10 Best East Village Restaurants. Let’s just hope the outcry doesn’t reach such levels that Sietsema feels it’s necessary to weigh in a second time.

Still not sure what to do with that special someone on February 14? White Castle’s got you covered.

It makes me cringe, and yet also makes me oddly hungry: Burger Oasis is now doing a Mac-and-Cheese….burger. UrbanDaddy has the skinny. Suddenly that phrase seems inappropriate.

The Sifster gives two stars to Maialino, calling it “a trattoria in an imaginary Rome where everyone comes from Missouri and wants you above all else to have a nice time.” I think that’s supposed to be a compliment. I also think if he gave only one star he’d have a mob of pitchfork-wielding New Yorkers on his doorstep. Go.

If you’re an oenophilic lush like I am, you might be interested in the upcoming Wine Expo at the Javits Center, February 26-28. Tickets are here.
