Nigel Slater: Real Food & Appetite. Straightforward recipes that you can then embellish.

What are NYC's Most Underrated Restaurants?

i would add Moim in Park Slope Brooklyn. Korean food with a modern twist and great atmosphere. Their seafood scallion pancake with the sesame dipping sauce is pretty close to heaven.

Who Makes the Best Pasta in NYC?

Carbonara at Al di La in Park Slope. Claggy, peppery and crunchy. All things a good carbonara should be.

Ask The Food Lab Anything, Thanksgiving Edition 2013

I have to accomodate a vegeterian, and another person who can't eat dairy, wheat or eggs. Is there a way to do this without having lame stuffing and/ or depriving the veggie of a main course?

Xai Xai, a South African Melting Pot in Hell's Kitchen

Wine at this place could be used to clean subway tracks. Pretty sure it took the enamel off my teeth. Great food though.

Good Bread: Alfama, Portuguese Bread in Midtown East

I had drinks here once. The bartender turned his nose up when I mentioned a Portuguese wine I liked (casal garcia vinho verde). Then, when I ordered one he recommended, he couldn't get the bottle open! How we laughed.

Lobster roe with coriander-brown butter. It was incredibly expensive, but it's ok - we ate it ironically.

Do You Agree with New York City's Soda Ban?

Life expectantcy in 1776 was about 35 years. By trying to extend people's lives with public health measures, Bloomberg and others are going against the spirit of the constitution. Also, there were no cars, computers or funky pop-up restaurants in the 18th century, so they should all be banned too. Freedom isn't free!

Date Night: Cozy Argentinian at PorteƱo in Chelsea

Of course the waitress was sullen and hostile - she's a portena! Glad to see there's an Argentine option that isn't all steak all the time.

No question about this. A chicken burrito from the Insurgentes stall in Mexico city, with peanut-jalapeno sauce. Yum!

Serious Eats Is Serious Business

Include ads related to selling food equipment - pots, pans, blenders, nuclear reactors, whatever.

Or maybe do a "Serious Equipment" column. I love cooking but have only just realized the difference cast iron makes when cooking meat! there must be others just as ignorant as me.

Serious Eats Neighborhood Guides: Harold Dieterle's West Village

No Bonbonnierre? The king of New York diners with pupil-dilating French toast and the opportunity to bother celebs who are really just trying to enjoy their coffee.

Shame on you.
