I Want Candy! Learn (And Taste) The History Of America’s Sweet Tooth

27 Oct

Before you pig out on all that Halloween candy, consider (and try!) the History of America’s Sweet Tooth. This seminar from food historian Francine Segan at the 92nd Street Y in Tribeca traces our candy cravings back to 1776, and hits all the high notes up until the present; think “election cakes” outside polling centers, sugar rationing in WWII, and the reason why ” as American as apple pie” is a huge mistake. Plus, get the back-story on some of the most popular desserts like Martha Washington’s Currant Cake, Boston Cream Pie, and the 1930s “Mystery Cake” and there’s lots and lots of yummy nibbles. Trust us, your post Halloween gorging will be so much more informed.

Friday, October 29, 12 p.m., 92Y Tribeca, 200 Hudson Street (at Vestry Street); 212-601-1000

We’re Not Saying No To Free Malaysian Food!

12 Oct

If you haven’t jetted to Phmom Penh or seen the temples of Ankgor Wat, this one-of-a-kind food cart is bringing you a step closer without the steep ticket price. Actually, no money is involved at all when you’re noshing tasty bites at the Malaysian Kitchen Food Truck, which will be cruising around the city until November 19. Each day, the meal-on-wheels will be serving samples from different restaurants in NYC that serve Malaysian food (think Fatty Crab and Café Asean) at places like Union Square or Madison Square Park. And, if you haven’t tried delicacies like Kari Ayam (curried chicken in an onion, tomato, and yogurt-based sauce) or Nasi Lemak (rice cooked in rich, creamy coconut milk with egg, sambal, and spices), we suggest you follow the truck’s twitter feed—it might be around the corner from your office—no passport necessary!

Our Mini Restaurant Guide—5 Hot Eateries In Vegas

21 Sep

1. Atelier de Joël Robuchon

French cooking maestro (aka “Chef of the Century”) Robuchon has two restaurants at the MGM Grand – his eponymous upscale eatery, Joël Robuchon, and the less expensive – but equally exquisite – Atelier, which offers the same gorgeous French cuisine with a more casual atmosphere (you can peer into the open kitchen from the counter while you eat). Try the tasting menu for $155 a person or opt for à la carte selections like fresh meat and fish. C’est truly magnifique!

Atelier de Joël Robuchon

MGM Grand; 3799 Las Vegas Boulevard South, 702-891-7925


2. Burger Bar

There’s no better find than a great burger joint, and Hubert Keller’s Burger Bar offers a relaxed dining experience with custom-made gourmet burgers (with beef, buffalo, turkey, vegetarian, and vegan patty options) starting at $8.25. Go posh with the $60 Rossini burger (Kobe beef, foie gras, shaved truffles), try the Surf & Turf burger with grilled lobster and Black Angus and even indulge in a burger for dessert – choose from chocolate, peanut butter and jelly, or cream cheesecake.

Get Some Tail At The Original Long Beach Lobster Festival

9 Sep

We can’t think of a better way to spend the weekend than chowing down on fresh lobsters flown in from Maine while listening to live music (tribute bands, reggae, blues and more) and having a go at the arts and crafts booths. If you’re as into the idea as us, there’s no reason not to make an appearance at this festival celebrating all things Lobster. With storytellers and magicians —for the kiddies—and beverage gardens with specialty cocktails for adults, all you need is a comfy ensemble. We recommend our cutoff shorts and a casual t-shirt.

The Original Long Beach Lobster Festival; September 10-12

Rainbow Lagoon;  Shoreline Village Drive
Long Beach, CA 90802

Tickets from $13 for one-day admission
