Drinks Liz Clayton 4 comments

It's both the salvation of the freelancer and the bane of the cafe owner's existence: the coffee-shop-as-workplace. And though the scenario's second-nature in most cities, finding a place to "laptop camp" in New York City can prove to be a bit of a challenge.

Sugar Rush: Ovenly's Espresso Shortbread at Stumptown

New York Kathy YL Chan Post a comment

They're baked by Ovenly, priced at $2.50 apiece, and go by the name "Stumptown Shorty." It's more crumbly than crisp, with little caramelized pockets of burnt sugar throughout. A fun little twist and a perfect pairing that serves only to heighten the intensity of the espresso. More

A Sandwich a Day: Oil-Poached Tuna from No. 7 Sub

New York Carey Jones 4 comments

There's a ton of fresh tuna crammed in here, poached until tender but firm, with crunchy haircot verts and fried shallots; the flavor recalls a Niçoise salad in a way we were quite happy with. Again, it seems that the best sandwiches at No. 7 are the simplest. More
