Shingo Gokan won International Bartender of the Year at Tales of the Cocktail this summer hot on the heels of his Stray Dog: gin, tree-resin liqueur, dill and olive oil. More botanical than gin, earthier than fernet and more complicated than mescal, Gokan’s drink builds off recent revivals of those three spirits. And it is not alone. How big is bartending’s savory boom? Even salty, meaty 2nd Ave Deli has developed a cocktail bar that pours leafy Dr. Brown’s Cel-Ray soda cocktails.
Major Food Group's final Four Seasons act opens in the Seagram building, a pasta pro's fast casual concept finally makes its debut and a wine bar serving a healthy dose of charcuteries opens in the Upper East Side. It's Major Food Group's world and we're all living in it. The third act for the Four Seasons revamp is serving Japanese-style dishes among Picasso-inspired sculptures. It's the '70s, baby. At this Hell's Kitchen bar, chef and owner R.L.
In a city where most meals are Instagrammed or Snapchatted, there's one form of social media that can still measure the barometer of success: Twitter. And a little blue birdie told us that Union Square Cafe took the top spot for the most-tweeted restaurant in the city this year, with the ricotta gnocchi as its most-tweeted dish (Twitter declined to share specific numbers). This could have a little something to do with its closure two years ago and highly-anticipated re-opening.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
