Delivery Apps Are Ruining Grocery Stores

Delivery Apps Are Ruining Grocery Stores

Please read our updated and , effective on December 19, 2019.There was a time, not so long ago, when grocery shopping could be a pleasure. It could also be a joyless time suck, of course — a chore, a scourge — but in the right mood, and under the right circumstances, it was a delight. You could examine ten thousand different types of cereals. You could inspect the plums!Now it is not. You could blame the pandemic for this end, but the pandemic only accelerated what was happening already. COVID-19 did not ruin grocery shopping, although certainly being terrified that you might die or...

The Very Real, Totally Bizarre Bucatini Shortage of 2020

The Very Real, Totally Bizarre Bucatini Shortage of 2020

Things first began to feel off in March. While this sentiment applies to everything in the known and unknown universe, I mean it specifically in regard to America’s supply of dry, store-bought bucatini. At first, the evidence was purely anecdotal. My boyfriend and I would bravely venture to both our local Italian grocer and our local chain groceries, masked beyond recognition, searching in vain for the bucatini that, in my opinion, not to be dramatic, is the only noodle worth eating; all other dry pastas might as well be firewood. But where there had once been abundance, there was now only...

Not All Culinary Journeys Can End in Success

Things you buy through our links may earn New York a commission.A running list of everwhere I’ve been, week 28: 270. 271. (the cart outside Atlantic Terminal) 272. 273. 274. 275. 276. 277. 278. 279. 280. 281. 282. 283.Nothing is guaranteed in this life, not even a restaurant with an 4.9 average rating on DoorDash. But it was that stellar score on an otherwise nondescript jerk-chicken spot that pulled me out of my Brooklyn neighborhood to what is almost the very top of the subway map, 225th Street in the Bronx.Actually,  was going to be my second stop on this trip. My original...

Things you buy through our links may earn New York a commission.It has been 28 months since anyone could stop in to — the small Chelsea restaurant run by chefs Eder Montero and Alex Raij — for whole turbot served side-eye-up, tripe with bizkaína sauce, or salt cod with pil-pil. Pandemic or otherwise, a closure of more than two years would be the demise of most businesses (just think of all that rent). Not so for Txikito, which is gearing up to reopen later this month.Montero and Raij still operate their Brooklyn restaurants, mere feet from each other in Cobble Hill. is focused on the...

How to Engineer a Clam Slice

Things you buy through our links may earn New York a commission.Everyone knows that the best clam pizza in New York is in New Haven. I grew up around there, in the birth place of this Connecticut specialty, and traveling across the five boroughs from Tottenville’s to Astoria’s only strengthened my belief. That was until last week when, lured by Instagram photos of a particularly promising clam pie, I dropped by in Carroll Gardens and, for the first time ever, had my convictions tested.The detail that most intrigued me was the fact that F&F appeared to be selling its clam pie by the...

Everyone’s Thirsty for The Bear. Here’s What It’s Really Like to Date a Chef.

Everyone’s Thirsty for The Bear. Here’s What It’s Really Like to Date a Chef.

Things you buy through our links may earn New York a commission.A few weeks back, I was at a restaurant when I noticed a diner at the next table give his meal the proverbial *chef’s kiss* — a loud smooch, fingers to the air, the whole bit. It prompted his friend to wonder aloud, “What would a chef’s kiss actually taste like?” Their server, not missing a beat, jumped in with the answer: “Alcohol.”Lately, plenty of people have been wondering what chefs’ kisses might taste like, fueled by rampant horniness for Carmy, the main character in the FX series The Bear.
