The Library at the Public: Your Pre-Theater Dinner Needs Answered

My expectations for a pre-theater restaurant are not particularly high. It's got to be near the theater in question, of course. It's got to be a comfortable place, where I can feel my party and I will be well taken care of. And it's got to be a crowd-pleaser. By all these accounts, The Library at the Public Theater—from Andrew Carmellini and Luke Ostrom (Locanda Verde, The Dutch), together with the longtime partners of Joe's Pub—is a success. More

Downtown Chefs Bring Relief: The NYC Food Flood Dinner

On Wednesday night, chefs Andrew Carmellini, Seamus Mullen, Marco Canora, and George Mendes teamed up at Aldea and threw a dinner for Sandy relief that stands apart from other benefit meals. In a project called NYC Food Flood, the $300-plate dinner raised over $20,000, which the chefs will use to get food to the hardest-hit regions like Red Hook, Staten Island and Breezy Point. More

NYC FoodFlood: Chefs Bring Their Dishes to NYC's Hardest Hit

"All of us wanted to do something, to give back, to help and feed people hit the hardest," George Mendes of ALDEA explains. "We thoughts about cooking and donating the proceeds to charity, but then we realized we wanted to take it one step further—to take those funds, rent a truck, and feed those in need." In the days and weeks following a fundraiser dinner, NYC chefs plan to rent a food truck and take turns driving to the hardest hit parts of the outer boroughs to cook hot food for the people who need it most.

Brunch at The Dutch: One More Reason To Go

Our ideal late-night food isn't too different from our ideal brunch food—except that there are probably more eggs involved in the latter. On both counts, we're looking for something substantial and soul-satisfying, not too dressed-up, appropriately indulgent, often fried; good cocktails and relaxed service are a plus too. So given how much we liked the late-night menu at The Dutch, Andrew Carmellini's newish Soho restaurant, it's no surprise that we were pretty taken with brunch, as well. More

The Dutch in Soho: Late Night Menu That's Worth Staying Out For

Andrew Carmellini's madhouse of a beautiful new Soho restaurant has crowds that don't quit; and it gets a second wind at 11:00pm, with a late-night-only menu that the chef calls "all the things I want to eat after midnight." That means fried chicken and ribs and burgers, along with some of our favorites from the dinner menu. It may be crowded, it may be noisy, and it may be a little later than you usually eat; but much of the menu is worth staying up for. More

First Look at The Dutch, Andrew Carmellini's New Soho Restaurant

The first time I ever had Andrew Carmellini's cooking was at Cafe Boulud; the man loves all kinds of food, and he has the most restless culinary intellect of any chef I know—so what I most remember about that restaurant was its forays into other cuisines. Carmellini's come full circle at just-opened The Dutch, an explicitly American restaurant which celebrates American cuisine circa 2011. More
