A Day in the Life: Ed Levine, Serious Eats Overlord

Ditto @AdamKuban! Miss your writing, Ed, but great hearing about your day! I had an insane crispy whole chicken (gutted, boned, meat removed) stuffed with sticky rice at Oriental Garden in the HQ hood last week. It's basically crisp chicken skin plus sticky rice. I think the SE team would love it.

Farewell, Serious Eaters!

Alaina, you're such a warm, wonderful person and I wish you all the best on your next adventure!!

Great post. One of my favorite ways to have the red bean porridge is to chill it to semi-soft and topped with vanilla ice cream!

Lunch for One: Great NY Noodletown

Tried to go there late night for chow funn (not the mai fun) and they were sold out! Can't wait to see how this elusive dish pans out.

Amazing 66: A Truly Amazing Menu in Manhattan's Chinatown

We go here whenever my parents are in town. The chicken stuffed with shrimp (one of my mom's favorites) though never had a pre-order requirement. The golden prawns over twin rice and the straight-up roast chicken with garlic are definitely two of my favorites. I end up putting those soyed-up garlic bits on everything that touches my plate.

Ed, we were totally in New Haven at the same time. Pepe's was out of clam pies by the time we got there though sadly.

Dinner Tonight: Roast Chicken with Saffron and Lemons

Made this last night with great success! Served it with some sauteed greens and brown rice fried up with with golden raisins, slivered almonds, sliced onions, a pinch of cumin and ground coriander, then sloshed with delicious pan juice!

Recipe on the Upper West Side: A Recipe for Success That Needs A Few Tweaks

Ed, I've been so happy about all these Upper West Side reviews and I'm still wondering when I'm going to run into you at Gray's (though with your Serious Diet, this might be less likely. See you at Fairway?).

More importantly, was this monster still on the menu at Recipe??:

Ali Baba's pretty good-- don't know if I'd go out of the way for it though.

$24 Lunch prixe fix at Cafe Boulud: Anyone done this yet?

I went this summer and it was good-- but not amazing. Had a recent RW lunch at Dovetail that was much better.

Super Bowl Party Giveaway: New York Burger Limerick Winner

Bill, I am very excited to eat this meat this Sunday. Thank you for being my talented limerick-writing friend. Love from, perpetually-hungry Jenn.

Mark Bittman's Savory Oatmeal with Scallions and Soy Sauce

I actually don't like oatmeal and have been trying to get myself to eat it for years-- this sounds GREAT, especially with the fried egg. I'd even add a little sesame oil/chili oil. The microwave option makes it perfect for the office!

Rack and Soul: The Best Fried Chicken and Ribs in New York?

I live right around the corner from here and the best is the $6 kids meal-- a decent amount of food, especially if you get the pulled pork. I ordered the catfish strips meal once and thought they were a bit on the chewy side until I got halfway through and realized they had given me chicken strips! Getting catfish confused with chicken-- pretty embarassing!
