Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays lovely readers! I’m still working on my post about my last night in Seoul, but in the meantime, check out “Raising the Bar: Tuesday Nights at Allen & Delancey” on SE:NY. Half-off drinks and tongue is involved… tongue of the edible kind. Anything beyond that can’t be guaranteed.
Again, warm wishes to everyone. I hope a fabulous meal awaits all of you today. If not, make it work anyway.
This week I went fancy and had a drink and a few small bites at the Gramercy Tavern. Not the main dining room, the tavern, but that’s still pretty nice in my book. Read “Raising the Bar: Excellent Small Bites in the Tavern of Gramercy Tavern” at SE:NY for more food intel.
This week I went to Clerkenwell for Serious Eats. It didn’t live up to the hype in my head, but I did discover they had Strongbow Cider on tap. Pretty cool. Read “Raising the Bar: Clerkenwell, A Gastropub on the Lower East Side” for details.
My latest Raising the Bar post is about White Slab Palace, my regular neighborhood hang-out spot. It takes a while to get drinks or food, but the place is chill, the waiters/waitresses extremely laid-back, and the seafood fresh. Read “Raising the Bar: Fishing for a Bite at White Slab” on SE:NY for some delicious and some not so delicious details.
Seventeen beers on tap and smoked pork by a local barbecue geek that competes nationally, need I say more? Read my latest bar review, “Raising the Bar: House Smoked Pig at Waterfront Ale House,” on Serious Eats: New York.
