Platt’s Deadliest Catch

Platt goes on a fugu hunt in Japan, the Robs tell of a spate of Village openings, and Commerce gets reviewed in this week's issue.

This Week, It’s the Little Things

Savarona and Wildwood Barbecue open, Persephone and Elettaria get reviewed, and crayfish, wine, and butter all get their due.

In this week's magazine: Platt on Eighty One, De Niro’'s new restaurant opens, and Starbucks's problems are solved.

Good Times for High and Low in This Week's Issue

These are high times we’re living in. Every stratum of society has something going for it. On the tippy top, the wine-swilling swells who frequent Adour can enjoy what, in Adam Platt’s view, is three-star cuisine. And their fellow plutocrats will enjoy South Gate’s posh but lively room and Gael Greene–approved food (well, except for the clams). But for the rest of us, Rob and Robin have a panoply of awarding options: There are the spring-inspired rhubarb hamantaschen made by Emily Isaac at Trois Pommes Patisserie; an interview the Robs did with Momofuku man Joaquin Baca, who now is doing the menu for world-class dive bar the Rusty Knot; and, adding to this embarrassment of riches, takeout sweets from Pichet Ong’s Batch, and a very appealing-sounding little Tuscan restaurant on Bleecker Street. On top of everything else, crackling is the latest snack trend. Good times, friends. Good times.

What’s the Best Food in New York?

It’s that time of year again: Restaurateurs and chefs have been sitting by, waiting to see who would receive Best of New York honors. There are a lot of them this year, from Best Ramen (Ramen Setagaya) to Best Goat (the recently maligned Fiamma). We won’t spoil the fun for you by going through the whole list, so just settle back and take them in. We guarantee it will be a lot more entertaining than the Oscars were.

This Week: New Fusion, New Coffee, Repurposed Water

Miranda
The city’s newest food-fusion trend is Latin American and Italian cuisines, says the Underground Gourmet in this week’s magazine. Miranda in Williamsburg and Matilda in the East Village are leading the charge, and Rob and Robin alternate between calling it “Mex-Italian” and “Tusc-Mex.” (Our pick: “Mexcellente.”) Outside of our regular reading route, Intel has a dishy item about David Bouley — apparently, his Tribeca neighbors aren’t so thrilled about his proposed Brushstrokes restaurant. Back in the food section, it’s a difficult time of year for the Greenmarket, but that doesn’t deter Damon Wise at Craft for offering up this week’s “In Season” recipe: pan-roasted salsify. Gael Greene visits Smokin’ Q on the Upper East Side this week and enjoys the ribs and the thin-cut fries, though she could do without the owner’s jokes. Rob and Robin introduce us to three new restaurants this week, and we can’t wait to visit Terroir, the latest from Marco Canora and Paul Grieco. Also in “Openings”: an East Village coffee bar co-owned by Sasha Petraske and a new burger spot in the financial district. If a recession breeds good $4 burgers, it can’t be that bad. Finally, if you want to reduce bottled-water waste, we found four restaurants with a DIY approach to filtration and carbonation.

Lindsay Lohan As Marilyn Monroe: Five Outtakes

In New York Magazine's current Spring Fashion issue, Lindsay Lohan is reborn as Marilyn Monroe, posing for photographer Bert Stern as Monroe did in 1962 for what was the last shoot before her death. But many of you probably knew that already. And many of you have already seen the pictures. So because the shoot's historic, beautiful, and no one is done talking about it, we're pleased to share five outtakes that did not appear in the magazine. We're particularly fond of the photo shown above, which might be the most Marilyn-esque of all. The new images are numbered 10 through 14, and you can find them here.
