A Sarcastic Appetite

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

The Siftster is dizzy over Del Posto, “a 24,000-square-foot palazzo of mahogany and marble devoted entirely to the pleasures of Italian food and customer satisfaction.” It received 3 stars from Bruni in 2006; Sifty upped it to four.

Restaurant Girl’s round-up of Best Late Night Eats include standbys Artichoke, The Meatball Shop, and Crif Dog.

Immaculate Infatuation is unimpressed by the slap-dash happenings at Hill Country Chicken, but over the moon by the refined and delicious happenings at Gramercy Tavern.

The Sunburnt Cow’s birthday is going down this Sunday – $20 for an open bar, 3 to 11:30pm.

Eater has the early word on Riverpark, the new “New American” from Tom Colicchio, on 29th Street and the East River. I went last night and found attentive service and a straightforward bar menu – cheeseburgers, cheese plates, smoked almonds – and a leathery new car smell that happens in brand-spanking-new buildings. I’ll let the last one slide.

Grub Street gets hot and bothered over Bill’s Bar and Burger, which just opened in Rock Center.

Midtown Lunch notes that Mad. Sq. Mark’t, a pop-up in Madison Square Park, opened last weekend. Vendors include Roberta’s, Hill Country, Resto, and Wafels & Dinges, among others. It’ll, um, pop-up every weekend until October 23.
