Drinks Maggie Hoffman 3 comments

You might have experienced a cheese cart or a chocolate cart, but what about a tableside basket of after-dinner bitter liqueurs? At Maialino in the Gramercy Park Hotel in NYC, bar manager Erik Lombardo recently introduced amari service, including a 16-bottle list and a few digestif bottles offered tableside for post-dinner sipping. We asked Lombardo a bit about the program and his picks for amari novices, plus the weirdest bottles and his personal favorites. More

Nick Anderer, executive chef at excellent NYC Italian restaurant Maialino, has no shortage of tricks up his chef-whites; see his perfectly poached eggs for evidence. But what does he cook when he's in the comfort of his own home? On a humid summer night, we stopped by Nick's apartment for kimchi fried rice jazzed up with homemade kimchi and leftover pork belly from the restaurant. More

Why Restaurant Coffee is Getting Better Right Now

Drinks Liz Clayton 4 comments

ood providers, from punks who do the highest-end artisanal donuts out of a tricked-out van to the white-tablecloth-and-napkin set, may be genius-like in preparing comestibles...and will then smack you in the throat with the worst tasting coffee imaginable. Stale urns of scorchy, low-quality coffee, or perhaps a thin and bitter espresso prepared by the bus-boy. Why, for the love of all things warm and brown, why? More

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.

Cook the Book: Salame ala Diavolo

Serious Eats Caroline Russock 3 comments

Salame ala Diavolo is Maialino chef Nick Anderer's contribution to The Big New York Sandwich Book. You're not going to find it on Maialino's lunch menu, but it's the kind of sandwich you could assume that he and his kitchen crew munch on—a play on an Italian sub assembled from salumi scraps and focaccia ends that haven't made it to the bread basket, with a pepper-olive relish that ties it all together.

First Look: Maialino's Happy Hour Menu

New York The Serious Eats Team Post a comment

We're big fans of Maialino, Danny Meyer's Roman-ish trattoria in the Gramercy Park Hotel, so we were thrilled to hear that they launched a happy hour menu—Monday-Friday, 5:00-7:00pm. Discounted drinks are a draw, of course, but so is Nick Anderer's food menu—eminently snackable plates like meatballs and anchovy-topped deviled eggs and crisp pork cracklings. More
