A Sarcastic Appetite

Restaurant Round-Up for the Week of July 8

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

The Siftster is less than enthused about Kenmare, giving it a goose egg and writing, “It isn’t even really for dinner. It is a place to get fries and sliders, followed by a sugar rush, a place to drink vodka while waiting on a text. It’s like 11 p.m. You want to meet downstairs at Kenmare and do whatever?” The Sifster’s a character, that’s for sure.

The boys at Immaculate Infatuation are on the road, hitting up no less than The French Laundry in Yountville and Cochon in New Orleans – which had several dishes that were so amazing, Stang’s “going to comission paintings of them.” Nice.

Telepan, the UWS stalwart, is not only doing a special prix-fixe for upcoming restaurant week, but they’re also doing special picnic baskets for $21. The baskets include fried chicken and dessert – need I say more?

There’s a pricey ($135 a pop) dinner at Aldea coming up, done by Sean Brock of Charleston and hosted by the James Beard Foundation. It all goes down on July 18; more info here.

For the next couple of weeks leading up to Restaurant Week (July 12 -25), Wined & Dined’s focusing on the gems already serving prix-fixe-style dinners. First up: Supper’s Monday night “Simple Supper,” a steal at $15.95.
