The Hunt for the Best Bagel in Chicago

Chicago Nick Kindelsperger 13 comments

If someone would have asked me last year about the best bagel in Chicago, I would have shrugged my shoulders and pleaded ignorance. But we are in something of a bagel boom and it's time to take stock. So, does Chicago actually have some bagels worth celebrating? More

The Best Tacos on 116th Street in East Harlem, NYC

New York J. Kenji López-Alt 13 comments

You could say we've been on a taco binge here at Serious Eats. After biking through Brooklyn and Queens last Sunday eating tacos along the way (wait for the video coming next week), I decided that Monday should be devoted to East Harlem, another hotbed of Mexican tortilla-wrapping activity (and yes, we'll be getting out of New York for Project Taco. West Coast, Midwest, South, get your tacos ready!) Check out the best tacos in the 'hood. More

The Best of Philly's BYOBs

Joy Manning 6 comments

Editor's note: We're pleased to introduce a new voice here to the Serious Eats community. Joy Manning is the restaurant critic for Philadelphia magazine and will be checking in on occasion to bring us all up to speed on Philly eats. Welcome, Joy! —Adam Philadelphia’s BYOB scene has been well-documented in the past. They have good food and offer the opportunity to enjoy a meal out without a steep markup on wine, but not all BYOs are created equal. Many have mediocre menus and some cost even more than their cocktail-slinging counterparts. Here is my selective list of bargain BYOBs that offer unfussy but fantastic food, unbeatable prices and personality, even if that also means lacking a website.... More

David Lebovitz's Guide to Ice Cream in Paris

Adam Kuban 1 comment

David Lebovitz says, "Here's my address book for the most popular, and my favorite places for ice cream in Paris," and proceeds to list six top glaciers and what he likes to order at each, plus the names and addresses of four more he's heard about but has yet to try. There's possibly no one else whose opinion on this I'd trust more, as he lives in Paris, is the author of the cookbook Perfect Scoop, and his recipe for Salted Butter Caramel Ice Cream is supposed to be better than that of Berthillon, which is regarded as the best ice cream maker in the world. Consider it a list you must print out when visiting Paris!... More

Condé Nast Traveler's Hot List Tables 2007

Adam Kuban 2 comments

Condé Nast Traveler's just released their Hot List Tables 2007: 95 of the best new restaurants from 30 countries, featuring dishes from $1 to $200. I'd be impressed by the magazine's eaters if a staggering 37 of the restaurants listed weren't from the USA! Seriously, only two new places in all of India worth mentioning, and only one in Japan? Really? Uh, nice of you to put the list together, guys, but I don't know that it's really worth anyone's time.... More

A Guide to Edinburgh Eats

Adam Kuban Post a comment

Gridskipper's Amanda Kludt just put together a short guide to eating around Edinburgh: nine restaurants ranging from an affordable Chinese restaurant frequented by students to a medieval chic restaurant where celebs go to be seen. I think my favorite thing about the list is how straight-forward so many of the names are—you've got your Chinese Home Cooking, Mosque Kitchen (a kitchen attached to a, you guessed it, mosque), The Mussel Inn, and the name that kills me every time I read it: Number One Restaurant. I mean, come on, Number One Restaurant! It's hilarious. The place has two Michelin stars, so at least it can't be accused of false advertising.... More

Late Night Paris Eats

Lia Bulaong 1 comment

Gridskipper's Amanda Kludt put together a list of ten places to eat late in Paris, for people like myself who need to get something to eat after midnight in between bars lest we pass out. Kludt on Pied de Cochon: "This 50-year-old restaurant specializes in piggie parts, and they serve them 24 hours a day. They are one of the most famous brasseries in Paris and manage to have a pretty steady patronage even in the wee hours. Try the pig snout, the pig tail, or if that's a bit much for you, a large pile of shellfish." I know where I'm going the next time I'm out drinking in Paris!... More

Rio's 10 Best Butecos

Lia Bulaong 1 comment

"Cariocan food comes in three vastly different varieties. First there's the churrascaria, a pricey all-you-can-eat meat engorgement program. Then there's the option of 'fine dining' but this consists in the main of incredibly pricey and uniformly disappointing stabs at haute cuisine. Then there are buteco. Dingy, tucked into a tiny storefront, a simple counter with stools atop of which fat Brazilian men are perched, butecos frequently serve the best and cheapest food you'll find. Invariably fried and seafood heavy, you won't lose too many pounds eating at these places but what you lose in life expectancy, you more than make up with cultural authenticity." Gridskipper put together a guide to Rio's ten best butecos, each one with their own speciality.... More
