Dinner will follow at the all-day cafe from Claus Meyer and Fredrik Berselius

Norman, the all-day cafe from Scandinavian chefs Claus Meyer and Fredrik Berselius finally opens Monday for breakfast and lunch after a months-long delay that pushed an anticipated February opening to April. Dinner service will roll out in the coming weeks.

The 140-seat Greenpoint restaurant is part of A/D/O, the 23,000 square-foot co-working space for BMW-owned car company Mini. The restaurant has an open kitchen and a long marble bar adjacent to a communal area.

The menu is fit for a Kinfolk shoot, with dishes ...

Bamboo Garden, One of Sunset Park’s Best Dim Sum Restaurants, Closes

Source: Eater NY

The phone is out of service at the longtime dim sum hall

It looks like one of Sunset Park’s finest Chinese restaurants has shuttered. Bamboo Garden, a bustling dim sum restaurant near the border of Dyker Heights, no longer has a working phone number, and both its Yelp and Google pages list it as permanently closed. The most recent public posts are from late last month.

The restaurant at 6409 8th Ave. is one of the newer dim sum dining halls to open in Sunset Park, which saw a burst of dim sum restaurants in the last decade. ...

So here we are again. Another week gone by, another weekend at hand. And the question now is, where (or what) should we eat this weekend?

But don’t worry. We’ve got the answers for you. That’s why we’re here.

–Have you been to The Dutch yet? The answer should be yes because the collaborative breakfast and lunch spot from Joncarl Lachman and Lee Styer has been open for a year already, serving what is essentially an all-day, every-day Pennsylvania Dutch brunch. If you haven’t been, this is your moment. Get there this weekend. And if you have been there, ...

Alpine Tastes, Rustic Vibes Frame Stable

Source: Eater DC

The new H Street spot arrives April 4

A slice of Alpine living is scheduled to land in D.C. on Tuesday, April 4, complete with a cozy raclette station, soaring sun-drenched ceilings, and a chic apres-ski environment.

Stable, the new 3,200-square-foot restaurant at 1324 H St. NE, is going for a farmhouse feel with lots of reclaimed woods, candles, and bright red pops of color — contributed by everything from lighting fixtures to napkins — intended to honor Switzerland’s flag.

Swiss-trained chefs David Fritsche and Silvan Kraemer tackled the design themselves, scouring the area for vintage accents. Windows were salvaged ...

Pizzeria Vetri in King of Prussia Reopens Tomorrow

Source: Philadelphia Magazine » Foobooz

Pizzeria Vetri/Official

After a short hiatus to overhaul the menu and make way for a new wood-fire oven, Marc Vetri and his cronies will reopen the King of Prussia Mall’s Pizzeria Vetri location this weekend — Saturday, April 1st.

Just like he promised, Roman-style pizza al taglio out, Neapolitan in. Plus, rotolos.

The menu is pretty identical to your average Pizzeria Vetri menu — a large selection of round, fire-blistered pizzas, calzones, salads and nutella pie — but gets the little added bump of rotolo-love. Instead of just the original mortadella-pistachio version, the KOP location has two more at-the-ready: the Calabrese with pepperoni, cheese and chili, and ...

After a fire yesterday caused the collapse of I-85 in Buckhead at the height of rush hour and today’s news that closures and repairs are expected to take several months, Atlanta is bracing for severe traffic issues for the foreseeable future.

Who needs a drink?

Beer lovers can take comfort in this non-traffic news: Creature Comforts Brewing Co. is bringing back one of my favorite seasonal releases, Cosmik Debris Double IPA, at a time when the newest and freshest hops are available. Look for it in the tasting room in Athens now, and around Atlanta in ...

New Chef, New Menus And A New Focus At Cinder

Source: Philadelphia Magazine » Foobooz

Cinder was not my favorite restaurant when I reviewed it back in February. It eked out two stars (mostly on the strength of its bar and a couple of the snacks being put out by the kitchen), but never really seemed like a place that knew precisely what it wanted to be.

But now that, apparently, has changed.

In the same week that my review of Cinder posted, its opening chef, Jonathan Petruce, let me know that he was leaving for a new gig with Michael Schulson. This left the kitchen without a chef and with even ...

Watch Michael Solomonov Search for Israeli Cuisine on the Big Screen

Naot goat farm

Nationally speaking, Michael Solomonov is the current face of Philly food. He’s our chef. The one who got so big, he was capable of turning the country’s focus — finally — to Philly, a city which, despite its best efforts to keep relevant and exciting (and, not to mention, two Top Chef winners), always had a hard time shaking its past. Plus, he’s the one responsible for introducing Israeli cooking to the American public, which is a big friggin’ deal since there’s so much unexplored nuance, history, and new vibrancy to the cuisine.

And, now, today, he is also a movie star.

Four Seasons DC Cultivates Ultra-Healthy Menu

District is the debut market for the green lineup

This spring the Four Seasons Hotel Washington DC will promote a West Coast way of living via a new healthy menu packed with avocados, rockfish, and even dessert.

The new options, available beginning April 8, are inspired by smoothie queen Tess Masters. The Australian author of The Perfect Blend cookbook is based in Los Angeles, which is where one might expect such a health-conscious menu to crop up.
