A Sarcastic Appetite

Restaurant Round-Up for the Week of January 13

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

Ciano, which replaced Beppe, gets two stars from the Siftster, who drools over veal meatballs “with the texture of down pillows” and the exciting half-bottle policy, which nevertheless “does not favor the amateur or the neophyte.”

The boys at Immaculate Infatuation (who are hiring) check out EV standby Lil’ Frankies and declare the place has “withstood the test of time.” Watch for the rotating pasta specials, which can be awesome, and the solid pizzas.

Restaurant Girl does a nice round-up of “Best Northern European Eats,” with some classics – Café Sabarsky and Petrossian – and some new faces – Vandaag and Edi and the Wolf.

Brooklyn Fare, the teensy market with an attached restaurant – and tempestuous chef – is expanding. (The grocery store part, that is. Don’t expect to snag a seat at Chef Ramirez’s table anytime soon.)

Park Avenue Winter kicks off a partnership with the artist Marina Abramović (yeah, that one) that involves an mp3 player. Hmm.

Kathy at A Passion for Food does Blue Hill Stone Barns for lunch – which is only served on Sundays – and the photos are amazing. A day devoted to Dan Barber and $85 for four courses!? Sounds like a deal to me.

Adam at Amateur Gourmet hits up Grand Sichuan and the best part is the photo of Ma Po Tofu. Yum!
