Hello reader(s)! I’m here to canvas the food blogs, so you don’t have to. A few highlights this week:


The photo above was taken at Weather Up Tribeca. It’s a great little spot – just don’t tell anyone about it. I’ll go anytime.

Donny, a regular Midtown Lunch contributer, has been working on Hidden Gems, a new foodie microsite from the Wall St. Journal. There are some, ah, gems in there so you might want to check it out.

The boys at Immaculate Infatuation venture up to my neighborhood and check out Jones Wood Foundry to good reviews. Guess I better get in there before the place blows up, Scotch eggs and all.

The Siftster checks out Tertulia and gives it two stars, I’m sure mostly for the Ibérico ham. Seriously, he waxes poetic about the stuff, served plain or stuffed into croquettes or melded into sauces. But Serious Eats also filed a review today, saying they “just don’t get it.” Guess we’ll have to try for ourselves.

If you’re cooking, the adorable Alexandra of Alexandra Cooks posted about this plum torte from the adorable Talley of House to Haus, whose charming blog about food and life in Zurich is now on my must-read list.

Jason Lam at Me So Hungry gets hopped up for The Food Porn Party, courtesy of Saxon + Parole, for the NYC Food Film Festival. Tickets are $75 and bacon-wrapped anything (even turtle burgers) sounds pretty good to me. If you go to the festival, be sure to check out Mistura, about the Peruvian food festival.
