A Sarcastic Appetite

Restaurant Round-Up for the Week of December 3

A day late and a dollar short? Whatever, consider this your weekend to-do list.

The James Beard Foundation’s Greens is hosting its annual holiday party this Sunday, December 5, from 6:30 to 8:30pm. Tickets are $85 and get you tasting portions from noshing notables like Luke’s Lobster, The Redhead, and The Meatball Shop.

Danny at Food in Mouth samples the roti wraps from Rhong Tiam Express (get the chicken lemongrass), while Restaurant Girl has a not-so-recent-but-still-key list of new-ish wine bars, including under-the-radar Bar Henry and organic UES offering V-Note.

The Siftster is not overwhelmed with Osteria Morini…when Michael White’s not in the kitchen, anyway. The place gets one star, and a caveat: “When Mr. White was present at Morini this fall, the restaurant hummed. On nights when he was not, trouble could ensue.”

Eater has the early word on Michael Psilakis’ Fish Tag, which (for now, anyway) has Chef Ryan Skeen at the helm. Reviews seem to be mostly favorable; let’s hope they keep it up.

The Immaculate Infatuation boys weigh in on Burger & Barrel and give it two very enthusiastic thumbs up. Order the Bash Style Burger…and the White Truffle Burger, which according to Wined & Dined blows all other burgers out of the water. Proceed at your own risk – and fork over $45.

NYC Foodie checks out perennial favorite Sushi Seki and is blown away – and to be fair, $60 for Omakase sounds pretty good to me too.
