A Sarcastic Appetite


Restaurant Round-Up for the Week of March 24

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

 

Danny at Food in Mouth and the Serious Eats Team set out to taunt me, both doing a round-up of the best doughnuts. Danny sticks to the new Doughnut Plant in Chelsea, while the SE Team takes on all of New York in their list. Anyone want to follow suit with me?

The Immaculate Infatuation boys check out What Happens When, now in its second “movement,” and deem it a pop-up worth freaking out over. The current movement, which lasts through March, was inspired by one Becky Fitzhugh, who contributed to the restaurant via Kickstarter and remembered foraging for food as a child.

Sam Sifton enjoys getting taken for a ride by the “extremely beautiful staff members” at La Petite Maison, and bestows it with one lonely star. An expensive and boring menu “demands a willing suspension of disbelief.” If you’re checking out the MoMa, hit up The Bar at the Modern instead.

Restaurant Girl talks to Alex Stupak, formerly of WD-50, who has just opened a 90-seat taqueria in the West Village. Eater has the rundown on the menu and the space, but BoozyNYC checks it out on Day 2 with a review that’s lukewarm at best. Looks like they’ve got their work cut out for them.

Andy from Wined & Dined alerts us to Belgian Restaurant Week, which starts today. Some deals abound, though most of them are best suited to those who can drink at lunch. One exception: Petite Abeille, which is doing outrageous things like selling $1 beers and half-priced wine. Check out the list for more details.

Fork in the Road checks out Goat Town to mostly positive reviews; I’m glad to see the place has improved after Immaculate Infatuation’s visit back in January.
