Eater:

 

"Isao Iijima (Blue Ribbon) took up the head sushi roll shortly after the founding chefs left,"


sandwiches that are large and filling and do not contain tuna or prawns

Glad there were subsidiary sushi rolls left for the customers.

Re: Blue Ribbon - we've been less than happy (and haven't been for a while) with a bit of a decline at Blue Ribbon on Orchard St.  Things were okay for a while after Toshi passed away, but not so much recently. Like, the rice has sucked, and so what's the point?

The awkward scone is spacethis cute little coffee shop has maybe 12 seats and has breakfast burritos and egg sandwiches. I have had several breakfast burritos in the past few weeks.
Ason, I keep planets in orbit.

The new Thai noodles shop owned by look by planet love just down the street for me. It’s strange they would call this a hot new restaurants as it has perhaps six seats at a table and another six seats for stools. It’s primarily a takeout restaurants and while I have been there, the place is never been busy or filled with anyone other than myself.

The fried chicken is still pretty bangin'.

 

I liked the oxtail oden on a chilly winter day, too. But that's been off the menu recently. 

 

It's actually been awhile since I've had sushi there. I mostly find myself going for the kitchen dishes now.

I like this idea...the other night nursing a cold, I wanted some hot non-ramen noodles.

 

Ended up at Raku on E. 6th St., and we were pretty happy.

Today, Sietsema reports on Baodega.  We had lunch there back in August.  To be honest, I'm not a big fan of Chinese food though Michael is.  However, there are some things I like.  We ordered spring rolls, soup dumplings, and the lion's head meatball stew.  All very tasty.

I thought this was a good piece by Sietsema on the decline and fall of the celebrity chef.
