Etcetera | Friday Fanfare, 2012.08.31

There will be some radio silence from me this weekend as Marcus and I are off to Block Island for the Labor Day holiday! Leaving you with this lovely round-up this week -- hope you have a lovely Friday and a great weekend ahead!!

noteworthy eats from this week:
  • homemade apple cider doughnuts from various placed in the Hudson Valley
  • curly fries from the Duchess County Fair
  • butter pecan ice cream from Holy Cow in Red Hook, NY
  • Swedish meatballs from Ikea
  • chicken and rice from the halal cart near my office :x
  • best fish-and-chips I've ever had from James Wood Foundry (and pear cider!)

This week's list of ruminating reads:

In case you missed it:

A round-up of drool-worthy recipes:

On the blotter for upcoming noms:
  • The NoMad Hotel begins brunch service next week with a menu that may include a "distillation" of the elements from the infamous roast chicken (i.e., the truffle and foie gras) into a sandwich! Say what?! Oh wait, they really did -- the menu was released on Thursday!
  • Cannot express how incredibly excited I am for this: a creative, culinary collaboration (entitled "Twenty-First Century Limited") between Eleven Madison Park and Alinea?! It was revealed later in the week what this supposed "collaboration" would entail (here and here). Also, see the AWESOME teaser video here.
  • Smorgasburg is coming to Dumbo!
  • Best spots for outdoor dining from Serious Eats New York!
  • Need to check out this new Great Gatsby-inspired speakeasy in the basement of McCoy's called Tomoka.
