For the eco-friendly tail-gater...

Three Flavors: Rosemary-Beet,  Lemon-basil, and Ginger-Mint 

Translucent cups made of gelatin and agar agar, designed by The Way We See the World

"Once used, the Jelloware can be simply tossed onto the grass where agar agar would nurture the plants to grow, making these cups an ideal substitute for disposable plastic and paper cups."  

Bottoms up....

Despite the weak adoption of the metric system in the good ole US of A, there is a place in the East Village that sells a Royale w Cheese and for $7.50!! Quite a bargain and TASTY!

National French Fry Day

Grrrrr. Animal Fries from In-n-Out.  Salty, but seems to be a fave for most. 

I found out today is National French Fry Day, so before the fritter commemoration ends, I would like to take the time to opine on some noteworthy fries in the city.

Best French Fries...

...with a burger and a beer: Corner Bistro
...with a fancy burger and a beer: Spotted Pig
...when you have a hankering for artificial tallow flavoring:  McDonalds, Large
...after a facial at Ling's: Coffee Shop's Fries with Thyme (Questionable, I realize, but on a rainy day, after the spa, shared while discussing the latest episode of a  Bravo reality show--this basket hits the spot.)
...uptown: J.G. Melon's Waffle Fries
...downtown: Pommes Frites with ketchup, mayonnaise and onion
...if you are partial to crinkle-cut and hellacious lines: Shake Shack
...with a plate of Steak Tartare: Balthazar

Feliz Patatas!

Brooklyn Bowl

Took the L to Billy-burg today to catch the World Cup final at Brooklyn Bowl. After enduring a 45 minute wait in the sweltering heat, we finally were given the blessing to enter by the bouncer and were pleasantly surprised by how comfortable and sufficiently roomy the venue was , considering the hellacious line! After the rousing Spanish victory, we all decided to get some grub. I was craving the fried chicken. As a matter of fact, I've been craving everything and anything remotely battered and thrown in a vat of oil, since I've been training. The chicken didn't disappoint--tasty crunch, well-seasoned, moist inside-- but somewhat expensive. $21 for a fairly generous plate of fried chicken, mash potatoes (excellent), and collard greens. Well worth the wait...

Domino's Photo Shoot

I'm in no way a shill for Domino's(because the pizza is like a eating hardtack with cheese-flavored rubber and tomato paste), but I thought this was a post-worthy behind-the-scenes look at a food photo-shoot.
