Truffled Egg Toast @ Inoteca

20110707-055614.jpg

I wasnt super impressed by the salads at Inoteca in the lower east side but I did enjoy the truffled egg toast. It consisted of a thick slice of brioche with a truffled egg (probably an egg stored in a container with a truffle overnight) and fontina baked on top served over sautéed asparagus. It also comes with bottarga. I opted for the original.

New York Philharmonic on the Great Lawn in Central Park

The New York Philharmonic plays on the Great Lawn in Central Park in July and its awesome.  We brought big blankets and a picnic from Zabars (of course) and laid back and watch the fire flies and listened to classical music.  You can bring wine too!  If you’re in New York during the summer it would be foolish to miss this.

Bierkraft of Brooklyn: so much to try, so little time

I hung out in Brooklyn for a day with Sam and he took me to Bierkraft.  I have never seen so many different kind of beers and ciders in my life.  They also had these cool Growlers that you could buy, fill up and then return or refill once you drank all the beer.

We got delicious, huge, house-made roast beef sandwiches.  Unfortunately they didn’t have a liquor license that allowed us to drink inside, so we did without the beer.  This place is definitely worth a look, I give it 4/5 Onlies.

Delicious Artichoke Pizza

Artichoke Pizza is a great late-night spot to get cream of artichoke pizza, crab pizza or a whole baked artichoke.  I went back twice and although I’m moderately lactose intolerant, it was definitely worth it.

I got the classic artichoke pizza both nights.  It’s the best thing on the menu.  If you have a chance, try to have a conversation with the proprietor of the joint as well.  He’s a trip.

Momofuku New York

I had to try Momofuku Ko and the Ssam Bar.  So delicious.  The pork buns were ridiculous and the Ramen at Ko was incredible.  This is a must if you’re in New York.  Check the menus below from Ko and the Ssam Bar and some food shots…  The Spicy Rice Cakes were also pretty interesting tasting.
