A Sarcastic Appetite

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

The Sifster reviews Má Pêche, the newest incarnation of David Chang’s Momofuku Empire, and writes the most bizarre things – but gives it two stars, of course. To wit: “Eating there is a little like visiting your formerly bohemian artist friend, whom you haven’t seen since he signed with Deitch and bought a double loft in TriBeCa.” Also: there’s a branch of the wildly popular Milk Bar in the lobby. Duly noted.

I love, love that the boys at Immaculate Infatuation have happily succumbed to Mad Men fever, reviewing the original location of P.J. Clarke’s and giving it a solid 7.5.

Eater NY went to the trouble of creating a hilarious map of restaurants to avoid: “12 First Date Non-Closer Restaurants.” Check, please?

Everyone and their mother has been reviewing the concretes at Shake Shack’s new Hell’s Kitchen location….and with good reason, since they’re all delicious.

Gael Greene is delighted with the “rebooted” Annisa, which recently reopened after an electrical fire devastated the place last summer. The new twist? Chef Anita Lo is not renewing her contract with the Rickshaw Dumpling Bar, so she can focus more closely on the restaurant and a new cookbook.

Let’s see if I can write this with a straight face: Grub Street has the early word on a new dating site from the good people behind Just Salad, which seeks to match singletons based on – wait for it – their salad preferences. It’s called Salad Match. Nope. Not joking.
