Hey there! Hiiiiiii. I know it’s been awhile, and you’ve probably forgotten what all this is. Not to worry: I just read the food blogs, so you don’t have to. Here are some highlights this week:

The Sifster checks out Fatty ‘Cue in Brooklyn, the newest joint from Fatty Crab creator Zak Pellacio. I still can’t figure this guy out: it’s “dark and shouty inside”? Why not just say it’s loud? Anyway, the Siftster gives it a one spot, getting all hot and bothered over the “incredibly good” food and deems it a restaurant “worth traveling to visit.”

Ron Lieber, another, ahem, ambassador of the Grey Lady, got into a little kerfluffle with Marc Forgione, son of the legendary Larry Forgione and owner of a restaurant called….Restaurant Marc Forgione. (Cut him some slack, he had some naming issues.) Anyway, neither comes off that well, though Ron just sounds like a complete jackass. Duly noted.

Keith McNally’s breathlessly anticipated Pulino doesn’t deliver, according to Grub Street’s Adam Platt. Nobody seems to like the crust, though what do you expect when you import a chef from San Francisco to pull it off? They’re too busy putting figs on a plate out there to know about good pizza.

The boys at Immaculate Infatuation check out Double Crown, and Perry Street, and Bia Garden…but I’m most interested in their rave of Blue Hill at Stone Barns. Add it to the list.

NY Barfly tells me that Spitzer’s revamped its food menu, taking it from beer-licious to beer-tastic. Apparently we’ve dispensed with the classic comfort foods and gone a little upscale – to the likes of pork rilletes and smoked trout. Well color me interested.

In other news, don’t eat at the Popover Cafe anytime soon – and if you were hoping to get your fill of poutine (is anyone, really?) well, you’ll have to look elsewhere: the LES’s T Poutine is down for the count.

It’s supposed to be 70 and sunny this weekend; if you’re somehow hard up for places to drink outside, Citysearch has a few suggestions for you.
