The New Amsterdam Market Pops Up for Summer

After a dispute with the City Council about the fate of the Fulton Fish Market, the New Amsterdam Market came back yesterday for summer, with 70+ locally-minded vendors selling everything from cheese to maple syrup, raisins dried on the vine to seasonal produce, from fresh-caught fish to cold-brewed coffee.

All 20 Lobster Rolls from Tasting Table's Lobster Roll Rumble

Last night marked Tasting Table's Annual Lobster Roll Rumble, with seafood restaurants and clam shacks from New York and all over the country selected by the Tasting Table crew to face off in a battle of knuckle, claw, and tail. Some contenders kept it simple, with a drizzle of drawn butter and a dusting of chives, while others went all-out in rethinking the lobster roll—lobster mac and cheese with lobster roe, anyone? More

A Storebought Super Bowl: The Winners of Our Taste Tests

If there ever was a day for eating pre-made foods, it's the Super Bowl Sunday. Sure, you could make your own everything from scratch, but this is the day made for lounging, lazing, drinking, eating, and watching others do the running around. There's no shame in buying pre-made queso dip and jars of salsa on Sunday. Just make sure you don't buy any of the losers of our tastings. More

So This Exists: Chocolate Cheese

Like I said, no one at the office was very impressed with this gift set; we reviewed it more for the novelty of the product. But since you asked, most of us were disappointed with chalky texture of the chocolate, and commented that the cheese tasted like "unsweetened cheesecake."

3 Reasons to Be Excited about Coffee Right Now

agreed on the grassroots-style coffee movement! there's a lot of micro-roasters/coffeeshop owners/baristas outside the U.S. who are also taking things into their own hands and getting passionate about coffee, traveling to origin to ensure quality beans to serve in their own cafes.
