Oct 2, 2014 12:00 pm

Among the regulars of bar 151 on the Lower East Side were Alex Day and David Kaplan, two of the cocktail-crafty co-owners of Death & Co. “Before we knew each other, we both independently went to that bar so many times,” Day recalls.  “I used to go there almost every night.” In a boozy full circle, the business partners recently bought the bar at 151 Rivington and reopened it with light renovations and a drink menu overhaul.

The Michelin Guide is the longest running, and most established, restaurant ratings service in the world. It started in France in 1900, and now publishes 24 guides around the world. London has its own guide, as does Tokyo, Chicago, San Francisco, Germany and Spain. France takes its little red book the most seriously, and rightly so. It’s the O.G. and most influential in a country that counts dining out as a national pastime. And this afternoon, New York City took its turn. Here are the results.

The latest cray genious from chef Andrew D'Ambrosi
Sep 22, 2014 9:00 am

In a tiny kitchen in brownstone Brooklyn restaurant Bergen Hill, chef Andrew D'Ambrosi is running one of the most-inventive seafood restaurants in America. Though constrained by limited space and gear more fit for a Central Park snack bar than mini Mugaritz (the setup includes four induction burners, a panini press and small ice cream machine), the former Le Cirque chef and Top Chef  scene stealer is composing dishes made with extraordinary flavor combos (Mayweather 1-2s) and personality. Here's one of them.

Photos Of New Yorkers Eating Alone At Home Is Not As Depressing As It Sounds

In fact, solo dining is a growing trend
Sep 15, 2014 10:00 am

Four years ago photographer Miho Aikawa set out to capture the essence of the home dining culture in New York City.  The series of portraits, shot with an honest, fly-on-the-wall aesthetic, aimed to show that urban diners — more often than not — take meals solo, while surrounded with flickering screens (mobile phones, televisions and computers mainly). It’s a fascinating study, revealing how a graduate student from Belgium eats a salad at home after a late-evening class on the Upper East Side, or a distracted Brooklyn teenager picks at a bowl of her father’s fettuccini.

Last week at the Heineken House at the U.S. Open, we caught up New York City restaurateurs Mario Carbone and Jeff Zalaznick to talk about their latest NYC opening, Dirty French, as well as what it's like to expand to Hong Kong.

Lard In Translation: Live From A Papua New Guinea Pig Roast In New York City

The transcultural (Pacific) language of whole hog
Aug 18, 2014 9:00 am

At 7:30 a.m. on a sodden Friday earlier this summer, a group of pork enthusiasts convened blearily at Ducks Eatery in New York’s East Village. Each person had a different reason for crawling out of bed at this unreasonable hour to throw back potent cold-brew coffee and talk about pig. This included two guys from Papua New Guinea: Fabian Paino, an internationally known master wood carver and Mundiya Kepanga, a Huli tribesman from a cool, mountainous part of the country. He's the one in a grass skirt with the bare torso.

8 Best Urban Barbecue Pits In New York City

The center of barbecue in America? We say yes.

New York City might just have the most exciting barbecue scene in the United States. There, I said it. Friends in Texas and North Carolina, you know where to send the hate mail. But hear me out. Between the New York Times restaurant critic Pete Wells announcing the arrival of “Big Time Barbecue” in his two-star review of Mighty Quinn’s and last week’s slow-smoked feature in Food Republic by Chris Shott, it’s obvious that something special is happening in the ventilated basements and back alleyways of the city of just over 8 million
