Colicchio and Sons's Warm Chocolate Tart Brings the Chocolate and the Crunch

Sugar Rush Niko Triantafillou 3 comments

An unpretentious fine dining dessert that keeps comfort at its core. Pastry chef Stephen Colluchi once told Serious Eats, "I love making things that should not be at a three-star restaurant." That may be true, but this dessert would be equally at home at a three-star restaurant or gastropub. More

On first glance, it would seem an odd choice. However, they seem to have given her freedom to create some forward-thinking desserts. One such example is a Quark Cheesecake ($11) made with a fresh, drained cow milk cheese formed from warm, sour milk. More

But here are ten great ones—everything from burgers and pizza to 24 hour kebabs and high class French pastry—to satisfy your late night urges. More

Jessica Leibowitz 13 comments

Let's preemptively kick off the summer with a mouthwatering inspiration known as the cote de boeuf. A lot of love (and butter) goes into the 40 ounce ribeye, and we're all the happier for it. It's admittedly not standard Memorial Day weekend barbecue fare—it's aged for 28 days and is cooked in four stages: in an infrared 1,700 °F salamander, a regular oven, and a clarified butter bath.

Edamame dumplings and Cantonese spring rolls: breakfast of champions? Yes, and it's called dim sum. More and more frequently, traces of dim sum can be found in dinner menus throughout the US, and we're not complaining. In fact, we recently snuck into a restaurant kitchen to see how the small dishes are made. Carey Jones even made some dim sum herself, under the careful guidance of Chef Yang Huang of Buddakan. More

Daily Veg: Wok-Fried Kangkong at Fatty Crab

Carey Jones 4 comments

A common complaint about the food of another nation, when cooked in America, is that it's not gutsy enough. Not as spicy or fish-sauce-y or buttery or Sichuan peppercorn-ed or smoky or sour as in its home country. Luckily, that's not a malady that afflicts the Wok-Fried Kangkong ($12) at Fatty Crab. More
