A Sarcastic Appetite


Restaurant Round-Up for the Week of December 16

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

The Siftster visits Kin Shop, Harold Dieterle’s ode to Thai cooking, and also gets all hot and bothered over the ruby-red roasted duck breast that the Immaculate Infatuation boys freaked out over. Kin Shop gets two stars and a mild caveat: “Grilled river prawns with fresh lime and a Phuket-style black pepper sauce lacks pow: it tastes of hotel cooking and evokes mild depression.”

Meanwhile, the Immaculate Infatuation boys duck into Lupa, which gets major points for having solid stuff like Spaghetti alla Carbonara (with crispy pork jowl) and the Bavette Cacio & Pepe (provided you like black pepper). Dylan Prime, on the other hand, gets a nod for being the most non-steakhouse…steakhouse. Order the Carpetbagger Steak. Just do it.

Oh Sweet Baby Ray: Danny at Food in Mouth checks out the Chicken Biscuit from Pies ‘N Thighs with some pictures that kind of make me drool. He’s not sold on the $6 price tag, but let me tell you: I am, and will be forking it over on Saturday if and when I finally make it over to the Columbus Circle Holiday Market.

As if that weren’t enough, NY Mag also posted its 35 Top Pork Dishes in New York. I want every one. You try flipping through Every. Single. Slide. without doing the same thing!

Nate Appleman, “rising star,” lands at…Chipotle.

Chowhounders give two very enthusiastic thumbs up to the burgers at under-the-radar East Village spot Brindle Room.

And lastly, if you want to eat at Del Posto and there are 4 of you, well, you’ll need to go ahead and download a credit receipt and fax it back to the restaurant. ….Yeah.
