Nothing ruins a great picnic spread faster than terrible potato salad. You know the kind I'm talking about: overcooked potatoes choked with mayo, lacking acidity and salt and just kind of gratuitously there on the table like anyone invited it. This grilled potato salad with lemon, feta and dill is that potato salad's hot cousin from the big city.

Yesterday the Food Republic team decamped to New York’s West Village for a test kitchen, where editors prepared (and photographed) a range of dishes while chefs like Jamie Bissonnette, Alex Stupak, Noah Bernamoff and Daniel Holzman/Michael Chernow stopped by for interviews. And when the work was done? A party of course, with our friends at Starbucks and Black Seed Bagels providing sips and snacks. Here are some photos from the after party.

I love a great blank canvas, and deviled eggs are just that. Their twist-friendly format just begs for specialty ingredients like truffles, exotic spices and caviar. Or in this case, a much more affordable option found at any Asian supermarket: tobiko, flying fish roe. You may have seen it adorning your sushi, but wait til you see what it does to this picnic classic. Prepare to impress your guests.

This super-simple smoked eggplant fingerling potato salad recipe is great for cookouts because while you've got the grill fired up, you can toss a couple of eggplant halves on there, forget about them for a while, then remember them, think you burned them and discover that underneath that dark layer of char is savory velvety-smooth smoked eggplant ready to blanket your potatoes.

If you're going to sit down and watch a lengthy baseball game, grab a snack that will transport you right to the park without ever having to worry about leaving early to beat the traffic. Whip up some real nachos straight from the FR test Kitchen and stay through the handshakes.

Since the inception of Food Republic and long before, we've been big supporters of big, beefy, cheesy sandwiches — in addition to burgers, not instead of. You see, there's a difference. Take the patty melt, for instance. It's not a burger, it's a sandwich. But this is a matter of steak.

“We don’t put on Pandora and let it play,” says Joe Campanaro. “The maître d looks around the room and gets a vibe.” And sometimes the maître d would look around the room and see rock royalty, which created a pretty unique vibe, as we find out.

Roasted whole, the eggplant retains a meaty texture and fits perfectly in an extra-long hot dog or hoagie bun, and the mustard-spiked miso marinade/topping pays homage to the classic ballpark dogs we crave when it's not Meatless Monday. Try this vegan "hot dog" recipe any time you're craving a vegetarian sandwich.
