We managed to chat with Googa vet Justin Warner, whose Bed-Stuy eatery Do or Dine is back at the festival for its second year, serving up its infamous foie gras jelly doughnut. Check out our Q&A with him below to find out how this year's festival is measuring up to last year's notorious shitshow.
After a long day at the office stringing words together in varying degrees of coherence, the last thing we want to do is keep communicating in complete sentences. Replacing the grunts and gestures we rely on to get dinner on the table, is Picture Cook, a tome that turns the traditional cookbook on its head; it offers illustrated recipes rather than wordy instructions.
Occasionally I put on my Asian Girl Hat and obsess over really cute things. Then I throw that hat away in disgust and go back to thinking about steaks and motorcycles and owning a sheep ranch in Carmel with Clint Eastwood.
This is a time when I keep that hat on, and compile a list of the most adorably-named celebrity chef restaurants that I’ve ever come across. The list has nothing to do with the quality of the food, the prestige of the chef, or even the ambience of the restaurant. The only criterion is: will the name make a five year old light up in unbridled joy? La Tour d’Argent sure doesn’t (unless you’re a French baby who loves Le Petit Prince.)
