A Sarcastic Appetite

You’ve probably forgotten the drill due to my long absence, so here goes. I canvass the food blogs, so you don’t have to. Some highlights this week:


Shifty Sifty gives a one-spot to the raucous Hurricane Club, an over-the-top homage to Trader Vic’s that’s nevertheless enjoyable for its “faux Polynesian” menu. Order the Samoan deviled eggs and the Peking duck tea sandwiches…and bring earplugs.

Nick Solares of A Hamburger Today calls Burger & Barrel one of his “Top 5” in New York, which means it just catapaulted to the top of my own to-do list. That, and their fried chicken, are making my mouth water. Not that it takes much anyway….

The boys of Immaculate Infatuation are hot-to-trot over Michael White’s newest downtown venture. Osteria Morini gets an 8.4 and a lot of love – provided you go easy on the meat and focus on the pasta.

Fork in the Road calls out the Top 10 Bakery Desserts in town, which means I just got one more reason to head to Brooklyn: I want that Grasshopper Bar, and I want it now.

Midtown Lunch says it best about Serious Eat’s recent post on where to eat lunch around Rockefeller Center.

Danny at Food in Mouth has good words for the Stracciatella pizza at Motorino’s EV outpost, while Robyn of The Girl Who Ate Everything gets carnivorous at DBGB….in a good way, of course.

Lastly, Blondie & Brownie have a very important PSA: Shopsin’s Sunday Brunch…is BACK. I want to go to there.
