  1. Late to writing this up, but was in New York a few weeks ago, and took the opportunity to hit THE GRILL with a few friends. Some background - the Major Food Group team (ZZ's, Carbone, Parm, etc) have basically taken over the Seagram building's restaurants - THE GRILL and THE POOL replaced the Four Seasons, and The Lobster Club replaced Brasserie. Much has been made of THE GRILL so far, particularly the cost of the renovation and the prices on the menu. If the crowd on our visit is any indication of their usual crowd I'd say things are going just fine. The redesign of the space is beautifu
  2. I'm admittedly a creature of habit. Each time I'm in New York, I tend to hit a few places from my list of "regulars" - though I try to squeeze in one or two new ones when I'm there. So it's with that context that I say that I've been to La Pecora Bianca in NoMad the last 4 times I've been to the city. LPB isn't the best italian restaurant in New York. And it isn't the best restaurant in NoMad (which, in my opinion, is the NoMad Restaurant inside the NoMad Hotel). But it fills a gap left by the closing of Craftbar (which wasn't technically in NoMad but close enough). It is a restauran
  3. Opening today at the Guggenheim, a two part, year-long exhibit of work by Robert Mapplethorpe. Implicit Tensions: Mapplethorpe Now January 25–July 10, 2019 July 24, 2019–January 5, 2020 "In the thirty years since his death, Robert Mapplethorpe (1946–1989) has become a cultural icon. One of the most critically acclaimed and controversial American artists of the late twentieth century, Mapplethorpe is widely known for daring imagery that deliberately transgresses social mores, and for the censorship debates that transpired around his work in the United States during the late 198
  4. The deeper you crawl into this story, the more repulsive it, and its characters, will become. "Frank Ribery: Bayern Midfielder Fined over Angry Salt Bae Tweets" on bbc.com
  5. I'm gonna jam some culture, shopping and food down the kids throat. We'll be staying at Chambers (they have rooms with two queen beds) near MoMa for 2 nights after Thanksgiving. Looking for restaurants south of Central Park and north of Chinatown. Thinking about Le Coucou, The Grill, Mimi and Beatrice Inn. What's the best Italian (Marea is already booked)?
  6. I have an unexpected trip to NYC next Monday and don't follow the dining scene there. I would love a recommendation for a solo meal (preferably at the bar- and even better if I can make a reservation) in midtown-ish, but I can cab to someplace that fits the bill. I'm looking for something not too loud. Had a great solo meal last month in Boston at Craigie on Main (thanks to Silentbob for the recommendation). Thanks.
  7. "All Aboard the Nordic Express, at Agern" by Pete Wells on nytimes.com Note: Agern (pronounced "AY-gurn' - and meaning "Acorn" in Danish) is operated by Meyers USA. Nominally, and I stress nominally, the "Executive Chef" is Gunnar Gíslason, the chef at Dill in Reykjavík. The Chef de Cuisine - the person running the kitchen - is Joseph Yardley, who comes from Acme in New York. The primary investor is the Dane, Claus Meyer, one of the founders of Noma in Copenhagen. Agern has plans to begin serving breakfast, then lunch; right now it's dinner-only, so assuming a future a
  8. If you want excellent Peking Duck, you can hardly do better than Peking Duck House. It has been in business for over 25 years at 28 Mott St. in NYC (there's also a midtown location), and I recently reacquainted myself with the place, after a long hiatus, when a friend wanted to go out for"¦guess what? So off we went, 3 or 4 of us from the building. And all I can say is this place totally rocks - at least for the Peking Duck. I'm not responsible for the rest of your order. Remember, the whole of Chinatown is fairly mediocre; the whys of that are a subject for another post (lousy cooks, shitty
  9. With Chef Nick Anderer at the helm, the newest restaurant from Danny Meyer's Union Square Hospitality Group hits the ground running. Nick is also the head chef at Maialino, another favorite of ours; Marta is Nick's and Danny's latest take on Roman cuisine, that of the Roman pizzeria, as a matter of fact. That (a Roman pizzeria) means that in addition to pizza, there's plenty of other good stuff to eat. And eat we did - 4 of us scarfed down a good portion of the menu - there wasn't anything I wouldn't have again (well, maybe the octopus, but that's just 'cause I'm sick of octopus in general).
  10. Anyone who puts (the original) 2nd ave Deli at the top knows what he is talking about. And validates my belief (since he agrees) that Brooklyn's tops Altmans.
  11. Lunchtime. Hunger. New York City. What are there, like a thousand places to eat? Actually, there's probably more, especially if you count all the street meat that's around; carts, trucks, kiosks, people selling tamales out of their granny carts, sidewalk food sold by squatting women in Chinatown - and on and on. Now compound that hunger problem with finding yourself in one of those places in New York City that sees a million people a day; people scurrying through its grand spaces, not there to eat but on their way from somewhere or to somewhere, generally in a hurry. And it happened to me las
  12. The silver lining to the place I had intended to dine tonight being unexpectedly shuttered was that I stumbled upon this gem about 20 minutes later trying to find some place that looked good. Yakiniku Gen is an unassuming little place in the basement at 250 E 52nd St., just off of 2nd Ave, and purports to offer authentic Japanese barbecue. I don't know squat about authentic Japanese barbecue, but the kalbi (isn't that Korean? but all - literally all - the other customers I saw were speaking Japanese to each other and the staff) was wonderfully marbled and flavorful. Just some beautiful, bea
  13. 204 East 43rd Street New York City 10017 Phone: (212) 972-1001 Fax: (212) 972-1717 Web: http://www.sushiyasuda.com/ One of my favorite destinations in New York is Sushi Yasuda in Midtown East, one block from Grand Central. I've been numerous times, and my visit last week was typical of the remarkable experience I've come to expect. My meal last Thursday at the sushi bar was omakase and included, in order (all nigiri unless indicated): bluefin toro, branzino, yellowtail, mackerel and jack mackerel (I told the chef I loved mackerel), scallop, arctic char, Australian king salmon, giant
  14. Pete Wells reviews Armani Ristorante on nytimes.com Normally, I'd direct you to the website, but here, instead, I'll draw your attention to the "ferocious" tennis player with his awesome backhand on display (on the top strip of models) here. Look at that grip! A threat to win the 2014 U.S. Open? This guy, on the other hand ....
  15. Hip, elegant, ethnic, hallucinogenic, whatever... Eating alone, will spend money but not a zillion dollars, hotel is in midtown but a location convenient to fine menswear or a decent museum considered. Grazie.
  16. "Inspired by the grand social promenade that connected the original Waldorf and Astoria hotels, Peacock Alley today creates an environment in which 'to see and be seen,'" the Waldorf-Astoria website says. Well hell, that's enough for me. I was thinking of catching the Acela up there for a $17 Waldorf Salad, but there's just so much to explore on this menu that I was hoping someone could guide me through it. Shall it be breakfast, for a $12 bowl of Frosted Flakes, $16 Traditional Steel Cut Hot (!) Oatmeal with "silvered" almonds (and at that price, they'd better be), or the $28 Poached Eggs B
  17. When Mom and I went to New York for my wedding dress fitting at Atelier Aimee, we rolled into town and did the fitting, which took no time whatsoever, I was starving. Hubby and I had been to Angelo's a couple times before so Mom and I hopped, skipped and jumped and were there. I really like the pizza here, it isn't Neapolitan style, but I also don't know that it is really NY Style either. Moderate crust, good topping, very crispy with some char. I also have had pasta here that I liked too, as Hubby normally orders a pizza and I can steal a slice or so of his. I like the pasta with sausa
