Dinner at Colonie

Hello, friends. It’s been awhile. Let’s get down to it.

I canvas the food blogs, so you don’t have to. Sometimes a day or a year late.

Midtown Lunch reports that the beloved Xi’an Famous Foods is opening an outpost in Midtown – at 24 W. 45th St, to be specific. Curious about what to order when it opens? Look here.

Into uni? Check out a couple restaurants serving stand-out renditions: the uni panini at El Quinto Pino; the Ricci at Marea, consisting of little more than uni, lardo, and salt; and the Marrow, for the ultimate decadence: bone marrow topped with sea urchin. Done and done.

Smorgasburg expands, and my stomach awaits with delight. The new venue, in East River State Park, has all of the space and none of the gravel of the original – and with shade! I can’t wait. It all starts tomorrow.

Half of Immaculate Infatuation had a sick dinner in Brooklyn….in a yoga studio. It’s called Take Root and it’s in Cobble Hill, actually quite close to the Columbia Waterfront District. So trendy!

And dinner at Colonie in Brooklyn just gets better and better (photo above). Five of us shared just about everything on the menu. The rabbit & foie gras terrine was outstanding – like having dessert first. And they make a mean negroni.

Oh, and if you’re a fan of “Straya,” check out this little number on April 18: $65 buys you wine, dinner, and some music to boot. Color me intrigued.
