Dirty French Serves a 30 Day Dry Aged Duck a L'Orange

ny.eater.com — "Once you cook aged duck you won't go back to fresh" states chef Rich Torrisi of Dirty French unequivocally. He has spent the better part of a year perfecting his duck a l'orange recipe and has resorted to dry aging them himself, because he's convinced that it significantly enhances the finished product.

Thanksgiving Croissants Return to Momofuku Milk Bar a Whole Two Days Early

ny.eater.com — Momofuku Milk Bar's most genius hybrid pastry ever, the Thanksgiving croissant, is cooling on bakery counters right this very minute. The flakey celery salt dough wrapped around dark and light meat, cranberry sauce and gravy typically debuts on November 1, so this is like Christmas come early in the world of holiday-themed foods.

Midtowners Brave Hour Long Line at Brand New Alidoro for Sandwich Glory

ny.eater.com — Cult favorite Italian sandwich shop Alidoro opened its doors this morning in Midtown to find many, many hungry Midtowners. A clerk at the shop says the wait's about an hour, even if you place your order in advance over the phone.

Barclay's Center Swaps Classic Spumoni Gardens for Young-Gun Favorite Williamsburg Pizza

ny.eater.com — There's some pizza swapping going on at Barclay's Center. Brooklyn classic L&B Spumoni Gardens closed up shop quietly some time recently, and now Williamsburg Pizza, the popular two-year-old slice joint has moved in. It opened its counter this Tuesday for the Demi Lovato show.

As Of Now, All Shake Shacks Are 100 Percent Free of Fresh-Cut French Fries

ny.eater.com — It's official: no Shake Shack customer will ever see a fresh-cut fry again. People-pleaser Danny Meyer and his team of fast food experts have been slowly reinstating crinkle cut fries at every Shake Shack outpost since August, after deciding that fresh-cut french fries (which were introduced with much fanfare only a year earlier) weren't actually what the people wanted after all.

Restaurants Are Still Fighting Insurance Companies for Money Lost After Sandy

ny.eater.com — Two years after Sandy, some restaurants in Lower Manhattan are still dealing with recouping their losses from forced shutters caused by the massive power outage. Just days ago, Tribeca Greek restaurant Thalassa, which lost what it estimates to be thousands of dollars during the 11 days it was closed after the storm, filed a suit against its insurance company for denying its claim in March 2013.

Battle of the New York City Heroes!

ny.eater.com — The hero sandwich is one of the proudest achievements of Italian-American cooking. Taking a French baguette - which became faddish in Italian-American bakeries around 1920 - and loading it up with cold-cuts that straddled two continents produced a final product that was as American as it was Italian, though nothing like it had ever been seen in the Old Country before.

Soho Sandwich Favorite Alidoro to Bring Italian Heroes and Breakfast Sandwiches to Midtown

ny.eater.com — Alidoro, the cult favorite Italian sandwich shop in Soho, will open a second outpost later this week in Midtown. The big Italian heroes, from a lengthy menu of options, have always been a darling of the bloggers and food writers of this town, and the tiny shop has consistently packed in a crowd at lunchtime, so this is a big win for the office workers of Midtown.

Who Serves Your Favorite Non-Neapolitan Pizza?

eater.com — When Danny Meyer and Nick Anderer opened Marta in Manhattan's Midtown East, they took a risk. Instead of selling perennially in vogue Neapolitan pizzas, with brilliantly bubbly crusts, they instead chose to offer a thinner Roman-style pizza, whose gossamer exterior boasts a gentle chew and a delicate, almost cracker-like crunch.

@kittenwithawhip that's happened to me at The Greenwich Hotel even when the bar is EMPTY and Locanda Verde is PACKED. Highly irritating.

RT @tkretchmar: @hels @qualityrye @eaterchicago Helen, add to tech+finance the fact that NYC/CA get more foreign-tourist $$$$ than CHI et al. Huge factor.
