We Chat with Chef Nick Anderer of Maialino

Jacqueline Raposo 6 comments

Chef Nick Anderer has taken on an ambitious project: dusting off old Roman recipes that sometimes involve pigs feet and lamb intestines and making them palatable for a New York audience. But no matter how he does it, what matters most to him is that everyone leaves Maialino with a smile on their faces. Here he tells us how he tries to do just that. More

We Chat with Chef Carmen Quagliata of Union Square Cafe

Jacqueline Raposo 2 comments

Chef Carmen Quagliata has been at the helm of Union Square Cafe for eight years now. And along with some big changes (adding a small plate menu for the bar, starting a weekend brunch program and recently opening up the front of the restaurant for a 14-seat chef's table), he's constantly developing his menu, keeping in touch both with his Italian roots and the ever-evolving ingredients coming from the market only 50 yards away.

We chatted with Quagliata about this line—how do you evolve such an iconic restaurant while making sure it remains true to itself?

Jacqueline Raposo 4 comments

Pastry Chef Alexandra Ray won Floyd Cardoz over with a fluffy lemon meringue pie, which she now serves among American classics pushed to the edge on her menu at North End Grill. We chatted with Ray about how sometimes ditching a law career, skipping culinary school and going straight into a kitchen can be the smartest and sweetest move. More

North End Grill: Danny Meyer Does Battery Park City

The Serious Eats Team 4 comments

Those of us who love Danny Meyer's restaurants are accustomed to thinking of him as a man who creates welcoming spaces, with stories and personalities and an intimate sense of place. Restaurants very much tied to their neighborhoods, which you couldn't really pluck up and set down somewhere else. Restaurants you want to be at, not just eat at. That's not quite the case at Meyer's newest, North End Grill; but there are plenty of reasons to make a visit. More

First Look: À La Carte Dinner Menu at Untitled

Aaron Arizpe 1 comment

"There's definitely an uptown/downtown traffic problem," Chris Bradley says with a hearty chuckle when I ask him if many of his old regulars from Gramercy Tavern followed him northward when he became the executive chef at Danny Meyer's Untitled at the Whitney Museum. The restaurant opened last March, initially serving just breakfast and lunch, and months later offering a family-style, fixed-price dinner on the weekends. Now Chef Bradley has introduced an à la carte menu with about twenty different options, not counting the sweets. More

Untitled, Danny Meyer's Restaurant at The Whitney: The Greek Coffee Shop of Our Dreams?

Ed Levine 10 comments

Breakfast at Untitled

Breakfast Ashley Muir Bruhn 2 comments

Danny Meyer's newest venture, a cafe for the Whitney called Untitled, takes the coffee shop of the '60s as its inspiration but manages to incorporate what's best about most of Meyer's operations: locally sourced, seasonally fresh fare, prepared by talented hands and offered at reasonable prices.

Maialino Breakfast Review: Do Romans Really Eat This Well at Breakfast?

Ed Levine 20 comments

I've heard from countless Italian food experts that Italians in Italy as a whole and Rome in particular, don't eat much for breakfast—that most people tend to make do with coffee, roll, and juice for a modest beginning to the day. So what explains the spate of well-regarded and reviewed Italian restaurants serving amazing, only in New York breakfasts? Maialino is the latest—and, perhaps, one of the best. More

Sandwiched at the Whitney: Chefs, Lunch, Art, and You

Ed Levine 5 comments

I was fascinated when I heard that Danny Meyer's Union Square Hospitality Group was going to open a sandwich joint in the Whitney Museum, featuring items designed by its chefs and pastry chefs. Why? Because it raised so many questions. First among them: Are chefs necessarily the best sandwich architects? We ate our way through the menu to find out. More
