25 Beef Sandwiches We Love in NYC

Beef, that delicious master of forms. We love it cured into salty pink pastrami and layered on rye. We love it ground with Parmesan, shaped into meatballs, and lined up on a saucy sub. We love tender short ribs and grizzly burnt ends, stringy brisket and tangy corned beef. It's just so tasty in all its outfits; here are 25 to get you drooling. More

Video: Behind the Scenes at a Slaughterhouse in Upstate NY

For one of her the latest Food Curated videos, Liza de Guia spent two days in Hartwick, New York, with Larry Althiser, the owner and head meat cutter for Larry's Custom Meats. "It's a story I wanted to tell, a good story about a proud butcher open to teaching his trade," said de Guia, even though she was a little jittery the night before the shoot. "Slaughterhouses must exist...but there's a right and wrong way to do it." More

Video: Bison Farming on Long Island

In the latest video from Food Curated, Liza de Guia meets Ed Tuccio, a farmer on the North Fork of Long Island who's been raising bison for over 30 years.

Video: Spring Lake Farm Inspires Grass-Fed Movement in Upstate New York

How does it taste different from other stuff you'd find at big grocery stores? "You can taste the grasses, it has a lot of flavor...a lot of integrity," says Ulla. She and her dad want Spring Lake Farm to be an inspiration for what the future of sustainable agriculture can look like in New York state, where millions of acres of land go unused. More

The Best Steak in NYC Might Not Be in a Steakhouse

A few years ago I would have said that it was not possible but these days there is a paradigm shift occurring in high-end beef in New York City—an extraordinary cut of beef is being offered in three avant-garde but very different restaurants in the city: Tom Collichio’s Craft, David Chang's Momofuku Ssam Bar and Resto (with new chef Bobby Helen) collectively pose a serious challenge to the hegemony of the chophouse.
