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

New York 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: Rubirosa Sandwich at Rubirosa

New York 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

11 Eggplant Dishes We Love in NYC

New York 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?

13 Great Bites at Meatball Madness

New York 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.

As impressed as we were by Rubirosa when it first opened, now that our office is just a few blocks away, I make it out there for a slice or two pretty regularly during the week. And I've gotta say, it just keeps getting better and better. More

Lunch Today: Pizza and Salad at Rubirosa

New York 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

A Sandwich A Day: The Braised Braciole at Rubirosa

New York 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
