Posts of the Week – 5/29/2009


Hello and welcome to Friday afternoon–here are some of our favorite posts from the week. Go out and get yourself some gelato and pig’s feet this weekend.

We brought you to foodie events all over the city over the holiday weekend.

We suggested that you BYOB a bottle of Gutedel to Zaytoons.

We brought you to the cocktail lab at the French Culinary Institute, where Nils Noren and Dave Arnold are concocting amazing things like the Long Island bubble iced tea and pork rind cracker jacks.

We drank punchy summer punch at Bobo, such as one that incorporated Beefeater 24, St-Germain, Maraschino liqueur, green tea, and prosecco.

We got the early word on Aamchi Pao and discovered that it serves what is probably the best vada pav in Manhattan.

We ate a vegetarian delight called hollow stem vegetable–actually Chinese water spinach stems–at what is probably the city’s only true Hunan restaurant.
