A Sarcastic Appetite


Restaurant Round-Up for the Week of October 28

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

I’ve never been so excited to have a case of the Mondays: Blue Hill is starting “Menu Free Mondays,” every second Monday of the month, for $95. The five-course menu will feature items from that day’s harvest, and a wine pairing will run you an additional $55.

If you are a fan of the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck (and how could you not be?), then you won’t want to miss Doug’s Farewell Party this Friday, 7-9pm, around Destination Bar.

The Siftster checks out The Lambs Club, bestows it with a one spot, but recounts a terrible, horrible, no good very bad story from an acquaintance, who ordered a rare hamburger and received it well done. Yikes!

Danny at Food in Mouth checks out Donatella, but isn’t totally wowed by the pizzas. Ultimately, the place looks to be a little close to Co. for comfort.

In other news, Lowcountry replaces Bar Blanc Bistro with Southern-inspired fare like Fried Chicken Biscuits and a Kentucky Hot Brown. Apparently we’re to avoid overdone sugary dishes like the “Molasses Lacquered Chicken,” but luckily the “All Night Good Times” house special (PBR and a shot of bourbon for $6) doesn’t count.

For some funny commentary, check out the comments from what Eater’s dubbed “The Brooklyn Fare Affair,” when chef Cesar Ramirez reamed out writer Joshua David Stein for taking notes during dinner.
