A Sarcastic Appetite


Restaurant Round-Up for the Week of February 25

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

My summer plans are now complete: I’ll be spending it on a rooftop, somewhere, drinking delectable beers in an old world Italian craft brewery, the brain child of none other than Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich.

Gael Greene checks in on Faustina, the new place from Scott Conant in the Cooper Square Hotel, and loves it.

The Siftster, meanwhile, heads out to Bay Ridge to give Tanoreen a one-spot. He adores the “ethereal hummus” and “crazily flavorful tabouleh.” Why do I have the feeling that he’s just reviewing his favorite haunts, outer borough by outer borough…?

Luke’s Lobster adds clam chowder and grilled lobster tails to the menu – $15 for 3 halves, which seems like a pretty good deal – as long as you’re a traitor, and will eat your Maine lobster any other way than steamed.

Fatty Crab’s UWS outpost turns 1 next Wednesday…so obviously an all-you-can-drink-fest is in order. Find out more here.

TastingTable sends word of paella powerhouse Socarrat’s expansion: it’s opened Bar De Vinos next door, to serve (you guessed it) wine and small plates.
