There's a new reason to visit Philadelphia. And it just might negate your planned smoked-meat pilgrammage to Montreal. At the new Abe Fisher, Matt Rodbard finds Schwartz's-level satisfaction in an un-Schwartz's-like short rib. Sop up all the juicy details this way.

What makes the Great New York State Fair so great? A batter-coated, deep-fried, Twix-stuffed, bacon-wrapped Twinkie, among other things. Veteran state fair correspondent Laurie Woolever (along with her 5-year-old son) reports from the heart-attack-inducing scene.

I’m sure that chefs find a certain charm in cooking in a crowded, sweaty kitchen as the orders race in, but after watching some of North America’s culinary masterminds at play in a verdant rolling field in New York’s Hudson Valley yesterday, I’d guarantee that a live fire and an open sky is a preferable setting.

NYC: There Is Still A Month Left To Try the Mission Chinese Pop-Up

Jul 25, 2014 9:00 am

Family-style: the simplicity of all ordering the same thing (though it’s not ideal for vegetarians), reaching into the bowl with chopsticks, the hungry grunting in chorus around the table — it all makes for festivity. That’s one thing that’s so attractive about the Mission Chinese pop-up going on now at Frankie’s 457 in Brooklyn.

These professionals might make it look easy, but I can only dream of pouring out those drinks. Who won? Everybody. But Chivas now has an official Master.
