A Jew and a Pit Master Walk Into a Bar: Sacred and Profane's Porky Comfort Food Dinner

Awesome! As the 'other' kind of New York Jewish-American (the type that doesn't eat meat), I would love to see Noah do an all-vegetarian meal, too.

Anatomy of a Smorgasburg Pop Up: Moving On From Smorgasburg

Scharf & Zoyer was really great -- as a vegetarian, it makes me happy to think that in the future incarnation, there will be even more stuff for me to eat. I wish them good luck, and am very much looking forward to seeing what they do next.

And for the record, I would so pay $9-$10 for a big ass KDD.

Grilling: Pimientos de PadrĂ³n

My favorite! They have them at my farmer's market -- I make my fiance play Russian Roulette with me and a loaf of crusty bread every chance I get.

Open Thread: What's the Quintissential New York Sandwich Shop?

2nd Ave Deli, Graham Ave Deli and No 7 Sub -- at least, if the person wants a Jewish, Italian and then Hipster NYC experience.

Scenes from Smorgasburg's Opening Weekend

Thank you! I've been going since it started (I live right down the street) but I can't stand the idea of waiting in line all day.

Do You Compost Your Food Scraps?

Yes! We live in a small studio apartment in Brooklyn and take our scraps (which we keep in Ziploc bags in the freezer) to the farmers' market every Saturday. Along with food, we also compost tea bags and coffee filters. It cuts down on trash and it's honestly kind of fun to see all of the produce we use every week.

Good place for a women to go alone for lunch ?

La Bonbonniere in the West Village is a nice, quiet little diner . I also like B&H in the East Village, though its TINY.

Frog cupcakes?

Supreme is near where my dad lives in NJ, but I wanted to help him find a frog in New York.

Frog cupcakes?

Supreme Bakery should be good! Thank you!

Frog cupcakes?

Oh gosh, yes, "mousse" sorry. I swear they're a real thing. We could definitely make them at home, but he's going to an event where they judge different "frogs" from bakeries throughout the tristate area. Apparently, it's a dying tradition. (Which explains why everyone thinks you're crazy when you ask about them!)

How to Find the Best Food in a Foreign City, According to Anthony Bourdain

I realize this makes me a total n00b, but why "anywhere but Yelp"?

Vegan Fast Food Options

Ah yes, I've taken that bus ride many times... and we've stopped at Roy Rogers about half of that time. "Lunch" would be a small Coke -- and that happened more than once.

Have You Ever Tried to Quit Diet Soda?

Since I was a kid, I drank a few cans a day. I quit cold turkey after the 10 millionth report about it being terrible came out. You lose your taste for it after a while, thankfully, but I still get cravings, which, like other posters have said, are worse than cigarette cravings.

Stay strong!

Goodbye, Dumpling

Hi Kenji,

I've been reading your posts for months and am a big fan of your writing. Dumpling was a wonderful pup. I loved reading the Serious Eats HQ recaps and seeing his little smiling face. I lost my black lab Angus in August of '08 and he is still a big part of my life (and is now tattooed on my foot in memoriam!) Losing a dog is a hard thing to go through and you are not alone in your love for the amazing creature that was Dumpling. My heart goes out to you in this difficult time. For what it's worth, you gave Dumpling more love and delicious eats than most dogs ever get in their lifetime. He will be missed, and never ever forgotten.


Win Tickets to This Weekend's NY Brewfest

Don't mean to sound like a broken record, but Brooklyn Brewery for sure!

The Art of the Lunch Deal: Peter Luger

Jeez, that sure is a measly serving of french fries. Great post!

The Best Pizza in Penn Station (And Down the Street)

Great investigating! I spent 6 months working across the street from Penn Station, and NY Pizza Suprema was my only saving grace. I once got invited to go on a Sbarro lunch with some of the other interns. Depressing!

Paulie Gee's Opening Tonight in Greenpoint

Went on Saturday night with a group of 5 and it was amazing!

A Sandwich a Day: 'The Bomb' from Sal, Kris, and Charlie's, The Sandwich King of Astoria

This place is a freaking hike from my apartment in Bushwick, butI've still managed to make a few trips up to Queens just for the Bomb. Great pick!
