Erin Zimmer 2 comments

Before Elements opened in October 2008—in a former auto body shop—there wasn't much in the way of fine dining in Princeton. Quite a few Serious Eats editors and writers have spent time in Princeton but never seem to mention much beyond the Wawa hoagies. But the daily-rotating menu at Elements is an ambitious one, with nuanced dishes like a savory morcilla brownie topped with taragon ice cream. Take a look at what we recently ate. More

Are America’s Best Croissants in Princeton, New Jersey?

New York Carey Jones 27 comments

I'll be the first to admit it: That's a pretty audacious claim. Our fair nation has no shortage of first-class bakers, whether French, French-schooled, or otherwise, who can turn out one fine pastry. Haitian-born Edwige Fils-Aimé may be tops among them. More

Editor's note: Occasionally what looks at first glance to be a conventional guidebook transcends the genre in surprising ways. John T. Edge's Southern Belly is just such a read, which is why I'm pleased that he has allowed us to excerpt selected items from it on Serious Eats, where they appear every other week. —Ed Levine By John T. Edge | The Italians wouldn't put up with this. Imagine some governmental agency coming between the good citizens of Rome and their supply of prosciutto di Parma. And you can be sure that the French would raise a ruckus if Parisians were cut off from their artisanal sources for saucisson sec. But for the most part, we Southerners just knuckled under... More
