Hally Wolhandler 14 comments

Vegetables can be incredibly tasty when done right, and yet when most people go out to eat, they tend not to order a vegetarian dish unless they're, well, a vegetarian. Here are 30 examples to make you reconsider. More

25 Beef Sandwiches We Love in NYC

Hally Wolhandler 9 comments

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

18 Great Chicken Sandwiches in NYC

Molly Goldman 15 comments

A really good chicken sandwich can be hard to find; so many are dry or stringy or downright boring. But great chicken—juicy, flavorful, maybe with some crisp skin in the mix—is perfect sandwich fodder. You can't really beat fried chicken on a bun, but it's just as good grilled and stacked with avocado, roasted and slicked with fat...or, well, we'll let this list of chicken sandwich stars speak for itself.

A Sandwich A Day: Vegetable & Goat Cheese Panino at Rubirosa

A Sandwich a Day Sam Levison Post a comment

We've enjoyed Rubirosa's killer Italian sandwiches several times before, so when we heard that they were adding a couple new friends to the lunch menu, we were eager to try them out. More

A Sandwich A Day: Rubirosa Sandwich at Rubirosa

A Sandwich a Day Sam Levison Post a comment

Chicken sandwiches, often filled with overcooked white meat and weak toppings, tend to be boring or, at worst, nearly inedible. The Rubirosa Sandwich ($12) at our neighborhood favorite Rubirosa is fortunately several notches above the archetypal poultry-between-bread ordeal. More

We're big fans of the eggplant parmesan at Rubirosa, so chef Al Di Meglio let us into the kitchen to show us how they make it—from start to finish. More

11 Eggplant Dishes We Love in NYC

Carey Jones 8 comments

Eggplant is one of those culinary chameleons that can take on the flavors of just about any cuisine. Italian? Bring on the mozzarella. Japanese? Hello, miso. Indian? Israeli? Sichuan? Azerbaijani? All good. The humble eggplant has an awful lot of stamps in its passport. So let's look at our favorite eggplant dishes in the city. More

13 Great Bites at Meatball Madness

Lauren Sloss Post a comment

Meatball Madness was a hot ticket at this year's New York City Wine & Food Festival, as evidenced by the sold-out tickets and by the long line stretching far down Mercer Street. We understand; after all, who doesn't love meatballs? Particularly when they're being made by New York's hottest chefs. With our discerning meatball palates on high alert, we wove our way through the crowd of food-lovers and Food Network lovers alike (Giada De Laurentiis was the evening's host, and Guy Fieri made an appearance), sampling all sorts of meat- (and meatless!) balls.

Lunch Today: Pizza and Salad at Rubirosa

Lunch Today Robyn Lee 2 comments

If you're looking for a chill restaurant in Nolita for a group lunch, Rubirosa is a great choice. My party of five had no problem getting a table at 1 p.m. on a Wednesday afternoon (they can seat larger parties in their back room). Their made-for-sharing pizzas come in large (eight slices) and small (six slices). We ordered two large pies and still had a few slices left over when we were done, despite the pizza's seemingly not-that-filling thin crust. More

Here are a dozen places that we think visitors to our fair city shouldn't miss.

A Sandwich A Day: The Braised Braciole at Rubirosa

A Sandwich a Day J. Kenji López-Alt 4 comments

Braciole, the Italian dish of thinly sliced meat rolled around a cheese, herb, and bread-crumb stuffing, is a staple of the Italian-American sunday gravy. Made with garlic-and-Parmesan-stuffed beef, the tiny involtini get seared and braised in tomato sauce until rich and tender. Like the meatball before them, it was only a matter of time before they got reinvented in sandwich form, and what a sandwich they make! More

A Sandwich a Day Erin Zimmer Post a comment

The Serious Eats Team 22 comments

We never tire of meatballs—be they beef or lamb, pork or veal, all of the above. We've found ones we love on sandwiches and on "sliders," of Mexican and of Swedish persuasion, at pizza joints and lunch counters and pork stores. In the end, we couldn't rank one above the rest—but we can present you 15 meatballs in New York City we love. More

Rubirosa: Retro Red Sauce Done Right

The Serious Eats Team 5 comments

In 2011, the Italian red sauce tradition has devolved to the likes of Carmine's, where there is no pizza and quantity trumps all, and Mario's on Arthur Avenue in the Bronx, where at dinner you are discouraged from ordering the excellent pizza because the owners want diners to experience the more ambitious food on the menu. But now, coming to our rescue, is Rubirosa. More
