A Sarcastic Appetite

Restaurant Round-Up for the Week of July 1

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

The Siftster checks in at Balaboosta, a little Nolita number Thrillist first told us about back in March, and gets positively poetic: “A pitcher of sangria slakes thirsts developed on the walk down Mulberry Street in the dank humidity of an early summer evening.” What? Sorry, I fell asleep there. I think he gave it a star or something.

The boys at Immaculate Infatuation, meanwhile, check in at perennial fave August, loved for its year round back garden and tarte flambe (though that’s only served at dinner and apparently it’s much better at brunch).

If you’re in town for the holiday this weekend, Restaurant Girl has a round-up of gastronomic goings-on.

In other news, the historic (80 years old) Gray’s Papaya on 86th and Lexington has been bought by a new investor and closed for renovations. They claim this will not affect the dogs or the drinks when they reopen. You decide.

Wined and Dined has the skinny on The Village Trattoria, which underwent a renovation and (thankfully) acquired a liquor license in the process.

Midtown Lunch hears that The Beacon in Midtown is now serving lunch out of their side door in a little pop-up called, well, The Side Door.

And, um, if you were feeling like your breakfast options were lacking, well, look no further: Taco Bell’s launching a breakfast menu. Yikes.
