This Week’s Specials: 5 Favorite Margaritas, Hot Dog Pies


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

Robert Sietsema lists his five favorite NYC margaritas, and tries (and hates) the spicy chicken sandwich at McDonald’s.

He also examines Pizza Hut’s new British creation, “The Bone,” a pie with a hot-dog-stuffed crust, and suggests a hot-dog pizza-pie alternative in NYC.

We talk to David Burke about his travels in Australia and the recent popularity of ramps.

We give you a simple recipe for grilled cheese from Bowery Diner.

We head to the Wren to try a spicy twist on a Dark and Stormy.

We also visit the East Village’s San Matteo Panuozzo and sample its vegetarian burrata sandwich made with pizza dough.

We found more vegetarian delights in the East Village at CigkofteM.

We take a look at April Bloomfield’s new cookbook, A Girl and Her Pig.
