Indian Accent Gives a Boost of Energy to Midtown’s Expense Account Dining Circuit

ny.eater.com — None of this is to say that a good story doesn't have its place at a restaurant. In our eye-rolling era of experiential eating and destination dining, chefs look to the spoken and written word to differentiate their wares from those of their bloodthirsty competitors on the annual World's 50 Best list.

Nix Is On-Trend, But All Over the Map

ny.eater.com — When my vegetarian friends ask for dining advice I send them to American spots like Hearth, for hen of the woods mushrooms and gnocchi, or to to nouveau-Indian spots like Babu Ji for their bright yellow Punjabi curries.

Eaters’ Journal: 7/3/16: Red Hook Lobster Pound, Chop’t, Ando, Fancy Nancy, and More

ny.eater.com — Red Hook Lobster Pound : When you swing by Hometown Bar-B-Que on a Saturday night, the line is long, but you deal. You grab a beer, you queue up, you grab another beer 30 minutes later, and in about an hour's time you're eating the city's best brisket and listening to live music.

The Best Citi Field Eats Are Found Near the Cheap Seats

ny.eater.com — When Citi Field opened in 2009, it boasted a Shake Shack - New York's third one ever, which helped make the ballpark a true culinary destination. But now, Danny Meyer's burger stands are scattered throughout the U.S., the Middle East, Russia, and elsewhere - not to mention throughout New York, where they're approaching ubiquity.

Chipotle's New Chorizo: A Taste Test

eater.com — I've always been more of a Taco Bell guy than a Chipotle guy in the world of Tex-Mex. That's not to say I dine at either more than, say, once every few years, but from a culinary standpoint, what Taco Bell does has more of a niche: It serves creative junk food you can't get anywhere else.

Andrea Borgen: The Badass Restaurateur Focused on Growth

eater.com — Joe's Crab Shack, a national chain with deep pockets, couldn't make no-tipping work. David Chang, one of the country's most celebrated chefs, also rolled back the policy at Nishi in New York. But at Barcito, a 100-seat spot in downtown Los Angeles, no-tipping is working just fine.

Seven Dishes That Highlight Why New York Barbecue Is so Important

ny.eater.com — Brisket at Mighty Quinn's: This is not NYC's best brisket, but I've never had better brisket from a chain, which Mighty Quinn's is - there are five locations in New York, one in Jersey, and still another in Taiwan. This is quality at scale.

This Is What’s Wrong With the 2016 World’s 50 Best List

eater.com — The World's 50 Best Restaurants list, which has in the past come under fire for its Eurocentric makeup, its lack of female-run restaurants, and its focus on expensive tasting menus, has unveiled a new guide with even more Eurocentric restaurants, fewer women, and as many expensive tasting menus as ever.

Mario Batali’s La Sirena Is Big, Brassy, and Oddly Boring

ny.eater.com — To be brief: They do not wow us. Del Posto was one of the most important restaurant openings of its era, but La Sirena is just another newcomer, another Italian restaurant that happens to serve a hamburger.

The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2016: The Full List of Winners

eater.com — Think Italian cuisine is trending? Osteria Francescana - whose quirky dishes like "five stages of Parmigiano Reggiano," "eel swimming up the Po river," and "tribute to Thelonius Monk" have made chef Massimo Bottura's tiny venue in Modena one of Italy's toughest tables - has for the first time earned the top spot on the World's 50 Best Restaurants list.
