A Sarcastic Appetite

Restaurant Round-Up for the Week of February 11

The usual: I’m here to canvas the food blogs so you don’t have to. Some highlights this week:

Marcus Samuelsson (of Aquavit) is planning a restaurant in Harlem called Red Rooster, which he confirmed on Tuesday.

Eater NY’s got a handy-dandy map of Michael Bao’s ever increasing expansion, so now you’ll know exactly where to go the next time you need a banh mi fix.

The Siftster tries to pull a fast one on us, reviewing Gramercy’s Novita (which, ahem, opened in 1994) and giving it two stars. This is supposed to be a “testament to the strength of [New York’s] restaurant scene.” I suspect someone’s a little worn out from trekking out to Flushing again and wanted to review something a little closer to home.

Mona of Mona’s Apple and Danyelle of Restaurant Girl both weigh in on Choptank – with very different opinions. Danyelle gives it three stars, while Mona was underwhelmed. Guess there’s just one way to settle it. Meet you at the bar in twenty?

The boys at Immaculate Infatuation rave about Sorella, which has been on my list since it first opened. (And not to be confused with Sora Lella, of course.) If you go, just don’t take up too much space at the bar; I’ll need ample elbow room to get after that agnolotti.
