A Sarcastic Appetite

Thirsty Thursday Round-Up for the Week of October 20

I decided to stop calling these “Restaurant Round-Ups” since half the time I’m not even talking about a restaurant, but instead directing you to some great food festival or recipe. To wit:


Let’s get down to business, and let’s stuff our faces on Sunday at the Grub Street Food Festival, which is taking over the Hester Street Fair from 10am to 6pm. It’s going to be madness: more than 100 vendors selling their stuff, in a space far larger than the actual Hester Street Fair; they’ve taken over the adjacent tennis courts to accommodate the hordes….which will include me.

The boys at Immaculate Infatuation have outdone themselves, relasing a (free) iPhone app that maps out all the restaurants they’ve reviewed. So if you ever find yourself in a nabe you don’t know well, it’ll show you what’s good nearby. You can also save a list of restaurants for your “Hit List,” which would be great for me since mine is currently a scrabbled note pinned to a wall in my office. Helpful, no? Get it here.

Red Egg has been getting a lot of love on Serious Eats lately; their Peking Duck Sliders  ($24) and Beef Chow Fun ($7 at lunch) are all good eats.

FloFab has the low-down on some new openings in town, including Toloache 82. I checked it out last night; the service was exuberant and the tacos decent.
