I like to eat!
Alaina told us to do this, and we did it. But we were using some standard VA ham (leftover) and a ball of mozzeralla that I melted over the ham. Pretty delicious!
I recommend this post.
This is a great post.
Both Grumpy and 9th St. Espresso have also been known to cup Counter Culture's Toscano Blend. Grumpy will sporadically carry a "reserve" bean, often from Ritual or 49th Coffee Roasters. My recommendation is to just go there and talk to the baristas (especially Ed or Cheryl), because they're love to talk geek/coffee.
What exactly does salmonella do to you?
We should be back to normal! Thanks everyone for your patience.
We can tell! :)
Izatryt, we're working on some of the infrastructure behind the eats. It will be humming again soon!
Every single item on the menu is incredible. If you've scheduled a week long trip, try and make 6 reservations, because then you can do the menu justice.
Otherwise, if you really only have one night, make an early reservation and let them know you want a long meal, and go with as many people as possible.
But the Pied De Cochon itself is very memorable. If I had to choose one thing, I'd get that.
It's a wonderful time to be alive!
I FREAKIN LOVE PUMPKIN PIE.
AND THAT THERE ARE SO MANY WHO DON'T LIKE IT MAKES ME SAD INDEED.
I MUST TYPE IN CAPS, I AM SO DISTRAUGHT.
Looks fantastic! Congratulations!
On a (very Fall) Sunday afternoon, I nearly walked right by Grom without noticing it. Reason being, there was no line whatsoever. I popped in for a medium cup of Pistachio and Lemon - not the best match, but still my two favorite flavors, and kept walking down Broadway thanking my lucky stars for cold weather.
This is a wonderful video. Thank you for sharing it!
Thanks Ed, for the nice writeup. Can you point us to any other good articles or web sites about the history of the web site? I found this one:
Which mentions an interesting stare down with the Giuliani administration, but that's it. Also relatively absent from the coverage - the vendors themselves. Perhaps an interview series here on SE?
The food lovers who I know are also among the fittest. I think that "loving food" doesn't necessarily mean treat it with excess. I'm reminded of Michael Pollan's recent New York Times Magazine piece: "Spend more and eat less."
On the Hush-hush, a source tells me the new supplier of beans at Grumpy "simply offers a higher quality product" than the old supplier, although Counter Culture still takes care of the beans that become their Clover beverages. A separate source confirms this and reveals that Grumpy has an exclusive line on the new beans, so "nasty ninth street" (their phrasing, not ours) can't ape Grumpy's bean selection as they did recently.
For my part, I enjoy the blend at Ninth St. (the Toscano blend) and I also heartily enjoyed the new blend at Grumpy this afternoon. The roast is a little darker than most espresso aficionados prefer, but I enjoy the lemon notes.
