Dishfinders posted a link from tablehopper by Marcia Gagliardi about Saucisson a l'ail @ Joseph Leonard Restarurant in New York, NY
"My farm-fresh eggs were cooked to perfection, served with a house-made pork and garlic sausage and crispy hashbrowns, plus arugula, and a whisper of crème fraîche, for a relatively affordable $13. " Read more...
Dishfinders posted a link from tablehopper by Marcia Gagliardi about Pizza @ C O Restaurant in New York, NY
"Jim Lahey’s pizza is one of the best I’ve ever tasted—what a crust. So delicate, it almost disintegrates in one bite, but still has the sexiest whisper of crispness. Yeah, that wood-fired oven is cranking hard. The veal meatballs ($18) on top were so tender and savory, and the caramelized onions, olives, and aged pecorino conspired to make this pizza kick total flavor ass. " Read more...

"I plunked my straw into the massive frrrrozen hot chocolate, their trademark dessert. It was icy, chocolatey, and covered with a mass of whipped cream. Total danger. " Read more...
Dishfinders posted a link from Tasting Table about Flammenküche with house-cured Kurobuta bacon @ Union Square Association: Grand Cafe in San Francisco, CA
"The lardons--sizable chunks of house-cured Kurobuta bacon--lend meaty heft, as the long-cooked onions provide a melting bridge between the soft tang of house-made crème fraîche and the salty crackle of the thin, jagged crust." Read more...
Dishfinders posted a link from tablehopper by Marcia Gagliardi about Akamaru Modern Ramen @ Ippudo Ny in New York, NY
"a flavor-loaded tonkotsu bomb of a bowl of pork chashu, with half of a custardy soft-boiled egg, and scallions, and bean sprouts, and and and… it’s freaking heaven." Read more...
Dishfinders posted a link from tablehopper by Marcia Gagliardi about xiao long bao (soup dumplings) @ Joe's Shanghai Chinatown in New York, NY
"Holy mother of pork, were these babies rich. I’ve never had such a rich broth filling—almost too much. They were also pretty hefty in size—they took some negotiating. The wrapper was mostly tender, but tasted a bit doughy to me." Read more...
Dishfinders posted a link from tablehopper by Marcia Gagliardi about Margherita Pizza @ Keste' Pizza & Vino in New York, NY
"Whoa, the pizza arrived quickly—a sign of a hot-ass oven. The crust was sublime—tender but bready, with an even char, and salty. The San Marzano tomato sauce popped with acidity and brightness. But I found the mozzarella to be a little rubbery—I wanted it to be creamier. " Read more...
Dishfinders posted a link from tablehopper about Chicken Porridge @ Out the Door in San Francisco, CA
"It’s simultaneously simple yet so rich: the rice is cooked in chicken water and fish sauce, with plenty of ginger, but chef de cuisine Grace Nguyen adds more chicken fat to it for good measure. Nice stroke. And plunked on top are slices of fried Chinese donut, spongy and almost eggy in texture, plus crisp fried shallots, and fragrant and bracing fresh shreds of rau ram, otherwise known as Vietnamese coriander. It’s the kind of dish you just want to curl up in, the snuggly sweater of breakfast." Read more...
Dishfinders posted a link from tablehopper about Tuna Tostadas @ Tacolicious in San Francisco, CA
"I recommend starting with the house fave tuna tostadas ($9.50) served “Contramar-style,” inspired by a research trip to Mexico City. The crisp tostadas feature a combo of thin pieces of raw tuna, crispy leeks, smoky chipotle mayo that isn’t shy, and a slice of avocado—it borders on tasting a bit fusion-y (blame all the wacky sushi rolls we’ve eaten in our lives for that first impression), but in a great way, with a playful balance of texture and temperature. The tostadas had more flavor than the made-to-order guacamole ($6.50)—we had to doctor ours a bit with some salt and salsa, but it ended up tasting good, especially the notes of cumin. And with the (free) crisp and light house chips, just watch it disappear. " Read more...

"with Texas strawberries and Pure Luck goat cheese. Apparently SWB believes in saving the best for last – this was my favorite part of the entire meal, the best dessert I’ve had in a long time!" Read more...
