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


The photo above was taken a few weeks ago at Untitled, Danny Meyer’s place in the Whitney. I love it there, though you get what you pay for: expensive diner food. Get there before 1 to beat the rush on a Sunday, and be sure to try their bloody mary. Delicious!

This article in the New York Times about crowdsourcing restaurants makes me excited for one reason only: I want to get out to Littleneck, that clam shack in Gowanus! Who’s with me?

Serious Eats has the early word on Parm, which just opened for lunch last weekend and will open for dinner soon. It’s from the guys behind Torrisi Italian Specialties, which is why I cannot contain my excitement. Now Torrisi will do a fancier lunch. Stick with Parm for the Saratoga Club – and they’ve got McSorley’s on tap!

The boys at Immaculate Infatuation are not fans of Mas (la grillade) or Bell Book & Candle, but they do like Hospoda, in the Bohemian National Hall on the UES.

If you’re heading up to Harlem, check out Restaurant Girl’s Destination Dining List. Red Rooster is on the list, unsurprisingly, but so is Bier International, which I have yet to check out. Field trip?

If you work in Midtown and like Pad Thai (and come on, who doesn’t), check out the new Pad Thai Cart on 50th between 6th and 7th. Go early, though; the word is out and apparently they ran out of food by 1pm yesterday.

The weather here in NYC is supposed to be pretty beautiful this weekend. Are you looking for activities outside? Do you like eating food? Then check out Smorgasburg, which ends November 19. Lobster rolls, doughnuts, pizza, tacos….I could go on.
