Under Review: Sietsema at The Vanderbilt; DiGregorio on a Citywide Martini Crawl
This week in the Voice, Our Man Sietsema is Brooklyn-bound for The Vanderbilt, where "partners Saul Bolton and Ben Daitz pride themselves on their homemade sausages"; while Sarah DiGregorio bellies up to a couple different bars in search of the perfect martini.
Sam Sifton offers up a two-fer this week as he visits Jefferey Chodorow's Tanuki Tavern (one star, for its "sushi maki rolls of the sort you can find all over the East Village") and Ed's Chowder House (no stars, despite "chowders [that are] if not revelatory, at least fairly rich"). [NY Times]
Alan Richman also serves up a double this week, checking out the wine lists at l'Ecole, the restaurant in the French Culinary Institute ("highly curated... a list for curious drinkers") and Ardesia ("something for everybody... small with a big range of styles and tastes"). [GQ/Forked]
