A Sarcastic Appetite

Restaurant Round-Up for the Week of June 23

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

The photo above is from Millbrook Winery last weekend, in Poughkeepsie, which I checked out with a few friends. For $75, you get a ride from the train station, lunch, a tour, a tasting, and a ride back to the train. My advice? Shell out extra cash so you have a glass of wine in hand at all times; the Express Tour is only about two and a half hours, and you need to make the most of it.

The Siftster checks out Desmond’s, decreeing it “pensioner food for those who run pension funds.” He describes the Dover Sole as “fish sticks for the sophisticated,” and somehow I think that’s supposed to be a compliment. The restaurant has set up shop across from the Bloomingdale’s flagship, if you’re interested.

Flo Fabricant writes that What Happens When will close this weekend, after issues arose with their liquor license. Did you get there before this fiasco happened? Did you like it? Let me know in the comments.

If you’re like I am, and wondering why your favorite food trucks haven’t been in the neighborhood lately, it’s probably because they’ve been setting up shop at Tom Collicchio’s Lot on Tap, down under the Highline. (That, or they’ve been ticketed like crazy by the cops, but that’s another story). The Lot will be open until September 30.

Everyone’s in a tizzy over the fact that the UWS location of H&H will close this weekend, due to rent increases….but meanwhile, down in Midtown, another location of Num Pang has opened! The lines were out the door on the first day, so be prepared to wait (or go on off hours).

My Inner Fatty has a hilarious (and delicious) rundown of pulled pork sandwiches at the Big Apple BBQ – I know it was two weeks ago already, and I don’t really care. I’m only sorry I missed it.
