I am a packaging graphics designer for a food company based in the awesomest city of the world, New York. My favorite thing to do is going to concerts and having memorable meals before I go. Art is Life is Food is Music.
Oh man, this made me nostalgic!! As a kid I was all about the 100 Grand Bars. My brother would have to trade at least a half dozen 3 Musketeers and some fruit flavored tootsie rolls just to get his hand on one of my 100 Grand Bars.
I would love a solid reliable gluten-free rainbow cookie recipe, or a classic yellow cake with chocolate frosting.
I just want to say thank you! I have hit up some of the places on this list as a Rego Park resident- but there are enough here that I haven't hit to go explore!
i love that you guys write up about my 'hood. thanks for the shout out!
Guiness OR Tröeggs Milk Stout!
Dirty Water DAWGS right after a concert. with onions.
Our 10 year running Valentine's Day tradition is,
NO CARDS, a Cheeseburger, and a Chocolate Milkshake at a diner, then a Horror, Sci-Fi, Cartoon, or Comedy while digesting. :)
THE PORCHETTA PLATE FROM PORCHETTA!
I'd be most excited to see me and my fiancé there, eating!
This is my favorite personal BBQ related story, and while not directly about eating BBQ I think it bears significance:
I had surgery, and when I came out of anesthesia, my male nurse asked me how I felt, and, after being on an IV and no food or water for 3 days, my response was "How do I feel? I feel like eating a PULLED PORK SANDWICH, can you PLEASE get me one?!?"
omdg. every picture is borderline inappropriate. i am seriously excited to try this place out.
@hungrychristel my sentiments exactly! ha
I enjoy eating bacon in the nude...
(or am I?)
This is reminding me of Clyde's Cider Mill in Stonington CT! such a cool place, good cider- and good hard cider too! It's good to see someone using traditional methods! I will have to check out harvest moon!
This just made me think of my mom's stories back in brooklyn in the late 50's when she'd visit her grandmother, and the Capozella (lamb's head) would be in the fridge waiting to be cooked up for dinner. ha- it used to make my mom scream & run when she'd see it in there, with its tongue hanging out and eyes bugging!
Anything that tells me what season it is! i.e. Apples & Cider for Fall...
I would put those burgers on ice, as if they were vital organs about to save a human life! I'd then rush them out to my parents home in Montauk. We would heat up my father's beloved weber, and- with as LITTLE handling as possible, we would grill those beautiful slabs of meat 'til medium rare, sprinkling perhaps a blend of salt, pepper, garlic, and onion on top as they spit and crackled with the heat. I'd make sure to have plenty of frosty beer at hand, as well as some jalapeño ketchup, some roasted corn on the cob, brioche buns, and some delectable cheeses to melt over those sexy patties of beef.
My entire family would then FEAST like the lords and ladies of lore, atop our own private Montauk manor in the hills, a cool breeze gusting as we heartily slurp our beer, slather our corn on the cob with butter & cayenne pepper, and shamelessly devour our grilled-to-perfection burgers! The joy of our full bellies would undoubtedly bring us to napping, dreaming of the perfection of the meal we had ingested.
Every Valentine's Day, for the last few years, my fiancé and I have made a tradition out of foregoing the absurd fine dining, flowers, and chocolate expectations of the holiday, and instead head straight to any given burger joint we can find, to indulge in A Cheeseburger & Milkshake. Nothing says "True Love" more than eating medium rare meat, and washing it down with a frosty chocolate shake- wiping the grease from our chins and smiling with sparkles in our eyes.
Just SAYING "Great GoogaMooga" repeatedly is cause enough for excitement.
I assume "GreatGoogaMooga" will become my battle cry after Hall & Oates finish their set... and all the food & drink that I can cram into my facehole has been consumed.
I just got to experience the bar at Robataya. I don't think I've ever had so much fun with food!
what a beautifully written little piece! thank you, i feel inspired to write, and eat!
Dinner at La Bernadin WITH Trent Reznor, then a private performance with him, and Nine Inch Nails at Le Poisson Rouge. Followed by our wedding- David Bowie is our officiant. (haha)
I really enjoyed the brussel sprouts at Kingswood, they were roasted, with bacon, maple syrup, lime, and a fried egg. They were well balanced between crunchy, nutty, sweet, and rich. Although I felt a little bit FATTER for eating them.
anybody else have them there?
I just ate "Tears in Eyes" this afternoon for the first time. I had tears in my eyes... but not from heat!
Spaghetti Squash With Ricotta, Sage, And Pine Nuts sounds like a delish and "lighter" completment to my family's "24 hour gluttonous-pants-unfastened-to-compensate-for-our-massively-engorged-buddha-belly-food-fest" (Thanksgiving)! :-)
