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

The Siftster does a neat trick, bestowing two glowing stars on Marcus Samuelsson’s Red Rooster while declaring the food to be “just fine.”

Danny of Food in Mouth has a hilarious write-up of his recent venture out to Buttermilk Channel, and despite the warnings of an hour-plus-long-wait, I’m still totally intrigued.

Over at The Awl, Neel Shah also takes an entertaining look at the horrible, horrible process of divvying up the bill after a group dinner. My take? Please. Just. Fork. Over. The. Cash.

Fork in the Road does a round-up of the 10 best vegetarian street foods, with Taïm Mobile topping the list.

Grub Street brings news that dilapidated Pier A in Battery Park is about to become a brand-spanking-new restaurant at the hands of the team behind Harry’s Steak and Financier.

And Gael Greene talks to Zarela Martinez, of the now sadly shuttered Zarela, and learns that Martinez is hoping to open a new, customer-owned version, somewhere downtown.

Lastly, if you’re looking for new reading material, Carol of Alinea at Home writes a wonderful review of  Life, on the Line, the new book by Grant Achatz and Nick Kokonas. I can’t wait to read it. Plus, she’s giving away two copies! Get in there.
