Celebrate a hassle-free Independence Day with our 4th of July picnics: swing by on your way to the rooftop or park and pick up a basket full of dinner. Get fried chicken, pulled pork, or veggie packages for 4 that’ll make easy work of giving you the best food at the party. All come with a full complement of sides.
We’re excited to be hosting a pair of special dinners by chef Nico Russell and his team this July: trial runs for his soon-to-open restaurant, Oxalis, these showcase seasonal cooking at its most refined. Nico and his team, all alums of Restaurant Daniel, are presenting multi-course, prix fixe dinners, including beverages, for $85 a person (the dinners are sold in pairs, so get yourself a date for the evening!)
For 11 years, we’ve served coffee in exactly one way: the French press. We like the press because it’s simple, it makes good coffee, and it lets everyone who orders have some control over how strong her coffee is. Like it light? Plunge early. Prefer to be shot out of your seat by the strength of your morning brew? Let it steep!
But lately, as you may have noticed, our trusty French presses have changed–and they’re getting us down. They’ve been cracking the minute we pour hot water into them, making them leaky at best (see above!) and useless at worst. (more…)
Join us for the MOTHER OF ALL BRUNCHES this Sunday, June 5, when we cross the torpid East River to join forces with our friend Amanda Cohen of Dirty Candy and the good folks at Bronx Brewery to serve up brunch to support (RED), an organization that works as hard as an army of line cooks to fight AIDS.
