Quick Spin: Chef Eric Haugen

Quick Spin: Chef Eric Haugen

The luxury of The Lambs Club in midtown Manhattan is captivating. The relatively modest entrance on West 44th hides the glamour within, an elegant space reminiscent of the city’s glory days with an interior of art deco sconces along wood-paneled walls, an illuminated four-seat bar manned by gentlemen in white suits, and a dining room […]

Eating and Exploring: Event Picks for February and March

Eating and Exploring: Event Picks for February and March

Oh, how I wish I could make it to every luxurious food, wine, and spirits event there is. Flying to and fro – Europe, Asia, Australia – eating, traveling, writing. It took Bourdain a few years to finally get to that point, and it’ll take me a few years to get to that point, too, […]

New York Restaurants Weather It Through Irene

New York Restaurants Weather It Through Irene

Like much of the rest of the country, I was glued to the television and the internet all through the weekend, watching to see just how Irene left her mark on the East Coast. One city that was busy battening down the hatches was New York City, of course – a city not generally familiar […]

Daily Blender Exclusive: Chef Scott Bryan

Admittedly, when my friend, sommelier Brett Feore, shared the details of his latest career move a few years back, I didn’t have much thought on the subject. A bit new to the restaurant world, particularly regarding the happenings of food-forward cities like New York, I was still trying to catch up on the who’s who […]

2010 Portland Cocktail Week: First They Educate You…

2010 Portland Cocktail Week: First They Educate You…

I’m just as intrigued by bartenders as I am by chefs. Masters of their own craft, mixologists are a group surprisingly similar to revered kitchen dwellers. A crew of creatives with a bit of show technique. Whereas a cook offers up his or her best via plate or bowl, relying solely on what can be […]

It seems autumn has snuck up on us once again. Here in the Pacific Northwest, the rain set in over the weekend and remains lingering, burrowing itself into our days and nights. Though offset by a few moments of sun, it has become clear that summer is over. Every fall, one of my favorite food […]

The latest chapter of the Ramsay tome is unfortunately on the bad […]

Today’s Food Newsbits: Food Carts at NYC’s Tavern; Humane Society Takes On Krispy Kreme; Keller Talks Business

Over the last year or so, I’ve been following the saga of the famed Tavern on the Green – mainly because it’s been such a landmark eatery in New York for so long but also out of curiosity on the evolution of its location from a business standpoint. After an ugly battle over the facilitation […]

Daily Blender Exclusive: Chef Tom Colicchio

Chef Tom Colicchio is more than just a pretty face. Most often recognized due to his stint as judge on Bravo’s Top Chef, Colicchio doesn’t just sit behind a table and critique ill-fated dishes delivered by nerve-wracked cheftestants every day. He actually cooks in his kitchen. It’s five o’clock on a Sunday in New York, […]

The Side Dish: Why The Restaurant Grading System Fails To Address The Real Issues

The Side Dish: Why The Restaurant Grading System Fails To Address The Real Issues

When we opened the catering business, there was definitely a learning curve. I had never run a restaurant, let alone worked on the business side of a food service operation, so there were a few times when I felt as though I was trying to catch up. One of those times was certainly the state-required […]
