Autumn in New York is amazing. We love how the leaves slowly rain down in fiery shades of red and gold, and we absolutely love the smell of hot chocolate and coffee wafting through the streets. Above all, we love the introduction of fall menus across the city. This is the perfect city for foodies, and as food curators ourselves, nothing makes us happier than eating to our hearts’ content and concealing our tummies behind oversized sweaters.
Nestled in Greenwich Village and helmed by John DeLucie (one of the city’s most sought-after chefs), The Lion recently launched its Sunday fall brunch menu.
Popular Manhattan wine bar, Terroir is expanding its territory to Brooklyn. Opening tonight, Park Slope residents will now be able to enjoy Marco Canora and Paul Grieco's sips and eats. The new location will have 74 seats, retractable garage doors that will stay open for warm weather, and a similar menu to its sibs in Manhattan.
However, the Brooklyn venue will have some exclusive menu items of its own, including ballpark hot dogs, cracker jacks and Korean cut short sibs.
This will be Terroir's fifth location, having just opened a seasonal location early this summer. So oenophiles, get ready to pounce on this new joint!
Celebrated Indian eatery Junoon is now launching their new lounge menu, which will be available during lunch (Mon-Fri 12-3pm) and dinner (Sun-Thurs 5:30-10:30pm, Fri-Sat 5:30-11pm). Skip to the Flatiron district and pass on regular bites from neighborhood pubs and do something different with your day. Delicious dishes featured on the new menu include spiced naan stuffed with mozzarella and gruyere, topped with roasted garlic and homemade spice blend, eggplant chaat (crispy eggplant dusted with flour and yogurt, tamarind and red onion), and duck gushtaba (freshly ground duck meatballs with green chilies and mint simmered in a saffron, almond and cashew sauce), just to name a few.
The name of the game is preparation, ladies and gentlemen. The point of a picnic is to pick a spot, put down a blanket, and eat. Prepare this healthy, delicious and easy meal ahead of time.
A word to the wise when preparing a picnic or any bagged lunch: prepare something that will only get better the longer you wait to eat it. We've all had to suffer through soggy sandwiches, so give yourself a rest and try something that will only taste better over time as the flavors blend: Tortellini Salad.
You will need:
- 1 (16 ounce) package refrigerated cheese tortellini
- 4 ounces sliced pepperoni, quartered
- 2 green onions, sliced
- 6 ounces mozzarella cheese, diced
- 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 1 1/2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
- 1 teaspoon dried Italian herb seasoning
- salt and black pepper to taste
