El Quinto Pino Gets a New Menu and Finally a Place to Sit Down

Max Falkowitz Post a comment

A few months ago, Chelsea tapas bar El Quinto Pino annexed a dining room next door to its 400 square foot bar. For the first time in its history, cooks didn't need to step outside to reach the walk-in fridge. And the extra space, a whole lot bigger than the original bar, allowed for real tables and chairs and, glory be!, a chance to sit down for a proper meal. Oh, and did I mention they take reservations?

Legend's Fried Corn is a Pleasant Surprise

Max Falkowitz 5 comments

Stir Fried Corn with Egg Yolk is far too demure name for what turns out to be a platter-sized mountain of battered and fried corn kernels tossed with small, juicy pieces of similarly fried shrimp. More

If you've been following our series on Smorgasburg pop-ups, you may be familiar with Bombay Sandwich Co., the stall dedicated to all-vegetarian Mumbai-inspired lunch and snack food with a healthy-ish edge.

Cull & Pistol Nails the Classics and Creates Some New Ones

J. Kenji López-Alt 4 comments

I'm a big stickler for properly cooked, ultra-fresh seafood at oyster bars like this, to the point where even the tiniest thing out of place can bring down the experience for me. At Cull & Pistol, they hit all of the classics just right, and even create new dishes that seem like they've existed forever. More

Sugar Rush Niko Triantafillou 8 comments

The mini-doughnut shop Doughnuttery opened in Chelsea Market last December, and though they've moved to a new space in the market, their menu is unchanged. That is they're still frying fresh doughnuts to order ($6 for six or $10 for 12) right in front of you with their stainless steel doughnut robot. More

Sugar Rush: Ginger Mille Crepe Cake from Cherry

Sugar Rush Niko Triantafillou Post a comment

In order to get the most enjoyment out of a mille crepe cake, the layers should be soft and pliable. You should be able to cut through the entire cake with a dull fork without resistance or cream spilling out the sides. Cherry's crepe cake not only passes these tests, but also adds a few signature elements of its own. More

Eat This Now: Orecchiette with Lamb Neck Ragú and Orange Carrots at Del Posto

J. Kenji López-Alt 6 comments

The other week when Ed and I stopped by Del Posto to check out their new gluten-free pasta options, I managed to sneak back into the kitchens afterwards to peep a quick look at how chef Matt Abdoo puts together what is quite possibly my favorite pasta dish on the menu (it's hard to choose). Check out how the Orecchiette with Lamb Neck Ragú and Orange Carrots is made, start to finish. More

J. Kenji López-Alt 19 comments

I was more than a bit skeptical when Del Posto Chef Mark Ladner emailed me a few weeks back claiming "We have perfected a fresh gluten free pasta recipe and now offer every single one of our pastas in a gluten-free version."

Perfect? Really? This I had to try for myself.
