List | The Blog-Shy of 2011

Just like I did for 2010, I wanted to create a post detailing some of the dishes I had during 2011 but failed to blog about it in Four Tines and a Napkin. These were the most memorable to mind, as there were times I felt I was definitely eating faster than I could write (though I must say that I did much better of managing this in 2011 than I had in 2010 -- 102 posts versus 81 posts, respectively)! As I know I will say this every year, one of my resolutions for 2012 is to make sure I don't fall too far behind on blogging and updating Four Tines. Busy season in the bean counting world has already commenced, so I will do my best to keep up! In the mean time, here are the ones that "got away" --- the ones that were shy (I call it "blog-shy" -- kinda like "camera-shy") of making the cut.

{1} crepes from Viva La Crepe -- typically ham, mushroom, and Gruyère cheese or sugar and butter / {2} Eat Drink Art Design exhibit at the Museum of Arts and Design / {3} Park Avenue Winter seared scallop "sandwich" -- an open-faced sandwich consisting of toasted bread topped with slices of seared scallops, crispy hash of potatoes and bacon, and cream sauce / {4} flash-fried mushrooms with truffle oil at Il Tre Merli Bistro / {5} honey-rhum glazed pot roast of pork with sautéed shanghai bok choy, fried plantains, and enoki mushrooms at Asia de Cuba during Restaurant Week: Summer 2011 / {6} souvlaki pita -- charcoal grilled chicken wrapped in a warm pita with fresh tomato, red onion, two french fries, and tzatziki sauce -- from Soulvaki GR at the 2011 Vendy Awards on Governors Island (winner of People's Taste category) / {7} Rib of the Tiger taco -- bulgogi with Korilla sauce, shredded Monterey Jack cheese, tomato salsa, and lettuce -- from Korilla BBQ at the 2011 Vendy Awards on Govenors Island (Rookie of the Year category winner) / {8} Asian pear gelato from Capo Giro in Philadelphia / {9} Philly cheesesteak wit' onions, mushrooms, and American cheese from Pat's King of Steaks / {10} duck confit pasta with cranberries and pine nuts at SD26 / {11} The Frenchie burger at DBGB Kitchen & Bar -- 6-ounce beef patty with confit pork belly, arugula, tomato-onion compote, and Morbier cheese on a peppered brioche bun, served with cornichon, mustard, and fries / {12} truffle egg toast with shaved bottarga / {13} three-course prix fixe lunch at JoJo -- for the main course, slow-baked salmon with truffled mashed potatoes, brussel sprouts, and a truffle vinaigrette / {14} shot taken from Mia Chef Gelateria gelato-making class (aka, "Mia Academy"), while making Snickers gelato / {15} classica pizza with marinara sauce, fresh tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and fresh basil, topped with truffle oil from Posto

{1} Nova Scotia lox and cream cheese on a pumpernickel bagel at Zucker's / {2} bacon-wrapped dates and olives stuffed with almonds from Alta / {3} book signing with food writer, David Lebovitz, at BabyCakes / {4} miniature ice cream cones from Burger & Barrel / {5} Creekstone Farms filet mignon with asparagus, butter-whipped potatoes, and crispy fried onions at Emeril's Chop House / {6} speakeasy-style cocktails at Milk & Honey
