AND ON TO OTHER FOOD NEWS BITES…
Boqueria offers brunch – and those nutella-filled churros are involved.
- Masa 14 has a new executive chef who is launching a series of limited-time menus focusing on cross-cultrual food fusion called The Melting Pot. The first highlights Sao Paulo’s blend of Portuguese, Latin, and Japanese influences, with modern touches.
- The local food bloggers are cooking up sweet potato-roasted corn cakes with chipotle lime crema, lemon-ricotta cheesecake bars, and some mad-colorful pasta (all of which can be dropped off at our office for taste-testing).
- The team behind Lincoln are now opening Teddy & the Bully Bar. “Paying homage to our first President of the 20th Century, the restaurant will feature a thoughtful design from local artist Maggie O’Neill and an outstanding small plate concept from a not yet named Executive Chef.”
- Head to Ping Pong Dim Sum from now until September 30th and order some of their delicious moon cakes celebrating the Chinese Moon Festival. Calling Ping Pong to make a reservation for the week of September 24 and ask for the secret phrase (or finding it here) and be sure to whisper it to your server for a very special dessert!
- And last but not least, a bit in advance but worth marking that calendar: From October 22nd until November 2nd, Oyamel will feature four new festive cocktails and a menu showcasing some of the most authentic ancient foods of Mexico during their 6th Annual Day of the Dead Celebration. Enjoy Mukbil Conejo (Mayan-style tamal of rabbit, duck, achiote and Habanero), Pescado Tikin Xik (grouper marinated in achiote, Mexican oregano and vinegar cooked a la plancha with fried plantains) and Taco de Camote con Mole de Cacahuates (sweet potatoes and hominy cooked in butter and achiote with a green mole). YUM.
