Where to Eat Near Penn Station, NYC (Our Updated Guide)

Sam Bresnick 4 comments

Two years ago we shared our picks for where to eat near Penn Station, one of New York's transit hubs in a...let's say challenging food neighborhood. But there's plenty of good food if you know where to look, and much more if you're willing to walk a little bit. To help, here's our updated field guide with everything from quick bites to a full-service meal. More

Max Falkowitz 12 comments

Here's a four-stop afternoon-into-evening walking and eating tour for you and your tourist that shows off the full range of the food and drink around the Empire State building. It includes a new hot spot, a tiny hole in the wall, and a champion of high class carnivory. In other words: the New York your guest really wants to see, but doesn't know to ask for. More

We Chat With: Chef April Bloomfield

Jacqueline Raposo 6 comments

April Bloomfield's first book, A Girl and Her Pig, just came out on April 10th, and it's a beauty. It's filled with the rich recipes that make diners at The Spotted Pig, The Breslin and The John Dory swoon, and is specked with personal stories of her journey. You'll be a better cook for reading it, even before you pick up a knife. We chatted with Bloomfield about making the book, and about how a chef from Birmingham, England won over the stomachs of New Yorkers. More

FergusStock 2011: Fergus Henderson at The Spotted Pig, The Breslin, and The John Dory

J. Kenji López-Alt 13 comments

For the fourth year in a row, Chef Fergus Henderson of London's St. John Restaurant is teaming up with April Bloomfield and Ken Friedman to bring New Yorkers a taste of his wares. Though people around the world have been eating offal since the dawn of meat eaters, Henderson's St. John is arguably the archetype for the current nose-to-tail dining movement and has done a great deal to advance the popularity of British food around the world. There probably wouldn't be a Spotted Pig without a St. John. The two restaurants also happen to be two of my favorite in the world. Get both chefs under one roof, and good things can happen. More

Make no bones about it, I'm a spuds man. A properly cooked potato—fried, mashed, hashed, souffled, baked, chipped, a pizza topping—is a beautiful thing any time of day: breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snack. New York's chefs are quite accommodating when it comes to indulging my predilection for potatoes. Herewith, some of my favorite places to get my potato fix.

'Cake Bible' Author Rose Levy Beranbaum Charged $25 'Forkage' Fee at The Breslin

Adam Kuban 66 comments

Noted baking author Rose Levy Beranbaum was recently charged a $25 "forkage" fee for couple slices of cake she brought into a New York City restaurant. While it was "outside food," Beranbaum had brought the cake from a cake-related video shoot she had just done and wanted to share it with her pastry chef friends. (Heck, she even offered the pastry chef and the server a piece.) While it's common for restaurants to charge a "cake fee" to customers bringing their own dessert, here it seems a little steep. We want to know what you would do. More
