After countless miles traveled, bites considered, and calories consumed, we've arrived at our winners. More

"This is food for food's sake, not entertainment. Items like American-sourced ginger and six kinds of organic apples set the tone." Not long ago, the state of New Jersey was looking for a new slogan. Of course, and per usual,... More

Sugar Rush: Desserts at Fairway Cafe on the Upper West Side

New York Kathy YL Chan Post a comment

Clockwise from left: hot fudge sundae, lemon tart, apple pie. Prior to Ed's post on Fairway Café, I wasn't aware that a restaurant, much less one with dessert menu, existed within the hallowed halls of the Fairway on the... More

Can the $9 Lobster Roll Save the Fairway Cafe?

New York Zach Brooks Post a comment

If this is bad then I don't want to be good. Lost City posted a scathing critique of the Red Hook Fairway Cafe yesterday, calling it a "sad" and "abysmal failure." I'll admit I haven't been since the summertime,... More

Sugar Rush: Berkshire Bark

Stacked between credit card bills and piles of magazines I'll never get around to reading, I received something in the mail last week that had me truly excited. Chocolate. More specifically, a sampling of chocolate bars from Berkshire Bark.... More

Cook the Book: Lox, Eggs, and Onions

Serious Eats Lucy Baker 1 comment

Did you know there is a difference between smoked salmon and lox? Before I moved to New York, I certainly didn't. Sure, they both come from the same fish, but lox is actually pickled in brine—it's not smoked at all.... More

Cook the Book: 'The Food Life'

Lucy Baker Closed

Here in New York, one of the most expensive cities in the world, good deals on food can be hard to find. After all, this is the home of the original World's Most Expensive Cocktail, not to mention a $1,000 ice cream sundae that is only available by appointment. Ask any Manhattanite or Brooklynite, however, and they are sure to tell you—in hushed tones, lest others find out—about their favorite place for a steal of a meal. My number one bargain buy? The lobster roll at the Fairway Café in Red Hook, Brooklyn. For just $7.99, you get a buttery bun filled with big, sweet chunks of lobster meat (light on the mayo), chips, coleslaw, and a snappy deli pickle.... More
