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

The Lobster Joint: New England-Style Seafood in Greenpoint

Paul Yee Post a comment

As the weather warms and outdoor seating becomes a premium, I'm drawn to the Lobster Joint's backyard. It's not an idyllic landscaped urban garden, but rather an expansive gravelled lot with rows of picnic tables, a no-frills but happy setting to dig into some lobster rolls, fried fish, and discount cocktails.

A Sandwich A Day: The Lobster Club at Brinkley's

A Sandwich a Day J. Kenji López-Alt 1 comment

The $23 lobster club at Brinkley's is, quite obviously, a $23 sandwich. This is an absurd price to pay for a sandwich. Then again, this is a pretty absurd sandwich, which frankly justifies the price. In a city where a single lobster roll can push $30, you'd be hard-pressed to find anywhere save a Chinese restaurant serving this volume of lobster for this price. More

Le Cirque Pops Up on the LES

Erin Zimmer Post a comment

If Le Cirque has always felt a little too frou-frou-fancy, but you still want an excuse to experience it, "The Feast: L.E.S. Cirque" pop-up kicked off last night and will spend the next three nights hosting dinners inside the Hotel on Rivington. Le Cirque's executive chef Craig Hopson is heading downtown and wants the menu to be a little more "downtown," too. What exactly does that mean? Cocktail pairings with three-course meals, where one ingredient is spotlighted each night. (It also means more Katy Perry playing in the rooftop penthouse-turned-event-space.) Check out our lobster dinner last night. More

Street Food: Red Hook Lobster Pound

Street Food Madison Priest 4 comments

The Red Hook Lobster Pound started out two years ago, with Susan Povich and her husband trucking up to Maine, stocking up on live, freshly caught lobster, and trucking back to Red Hook, where the couple sold them to lucky folk like you and me. In the intervening years, Red Hook Lobster Pound has, in the words of the guy manning the counter when I ordered my rolls, "kind of exploded." More

[Photo: Bloomberg] Would you eat an animal that's seven decades old? I've never given much consideration to the age of an animal that ends up on my plate. But Ryan Sutton's story has me thinking twice. He writes about... More
