This Week’s Specials: Blue Bottle Temple, Borscht Ice Cream


What we’ve been up to at Fork in the Road this week:

Robert Sietsema checked out the new Blue Bottle Coffee spot in Chelsea: “The baristas stand like priests, doing their pour-overs like it was holy water. The reverence in the air is palpable.”

Lauren Shockey talked with Shea Gallante about how Italian cuisine has evolved since he became a chef.

We celebrated National Margarita Day. And tested hangover cures for the morning after. Then, we headed to Whitehall for some gin cocktails.

Lauren Bloomberg found borscht being served all over the place, even in ice-cream form.
