finishing some unloading in the neighborhood, i took 3 virgins to the 24th/9th GSI...and while i don't have any real new news, i somehow feel obliged to report that it's Still Delicious. chicken auzhou, whole fish with scallion (god was that luscious), soup dumplings, red pork, wonton with red oil etc etc etc...after overindulging until my stomach cried out in pain last night i was nonetheless ready to go back for breakfast this morning

"But the tradition continues. When Mr. Snyder was growing up, the cousins all worked at the store each summer. And last week, his cousin Ellen Smith seemed perfectly content to drop her fruit knife and wait on customers as Mr. Snyder sat and talked at the front of his store at 95 Orchard Street, between Delancey and Broome Streets. Despite his dedication to New York, his personal energy is mellow enough to qualify as Californian. The most worked up he got all day was over how many skins should go into the Black Grape Sorbet."

went by the space that will be Counter (designed by the guy that did Jewel Bako and Alais), this place is going to be beautiful i believe, food is all organic, the kitchen size is hugh (owner said there is a giant area for prep), the wine list will be all organic farmed, cert organic, bio-dynamie, or cosmoculture which is bio + stonehedge ++, i am lookinf forward to what they do, expecially since i need a new diet for 2003.....

Google cooking?

Recently I've become a Google cook. What I mean is, shortly before supper time I look around for some combination of foods I've got on hand and which seem like they might go together. Then I 'google' them... and browse through the results until I find a recipe that appeals to me.

one app at Il Gattopardo has me hooked, met the chef and he is a hands on humble guy that worked (was the chef?) at a one star Michelin near Milano, going for a full meal soon....had dinner last night at Phi Lan and while it boarders on very real Vietnamese food and was delish, it aint like the homeland....

We had a nice meal at Brewster Fish House on Cape Cod, I still cant understand why there are not more, but part of my problem I bet is just finding them...I still long to go back to Fresh, lucky we live near The Minnow, and of interest could be Mermaid Inn (by the owners of Red Cat and The Harrison) to open in East Village and all dishes under $15....

"I used to ridicule the Riedel fetishists. Then I became one. Riedel, for those not in the know, is the world's trendiest brand of wineglass—the Manolo Blahniks of stemware. Wine geeks tote their Riedels to restaurants, dinner parties, and pretty much any place else where quality bottles might be uncorked."

This week, to accompany the Food Issue of The New Yorker, here is a selection of New Yorker food writing from the past. In this Talk of the Town piece from 1945, Lillian Ross writes about what was at the time a novelty: frozen dinners.
