  1. So voyager: only walk up and down clay/har-tru stairs.
  2. Now that you mention it, I think he claimed to have done that!
  3. (Of course, you can all see the irony in Redzepi's position: his whole shtick is using only hyper-local ingredients. But when he guests in New York, he has some of his home ingredients shipped over, as the ingredients that are the basis of his cuisine aren't available here. So in New York, his cooking wasn't so hyper-local.)
  4. Intersect has a pretty set format: the guest chef comes the week before to train the kitchen, and stays for the first week or so to oversee initial operations and then leaves. I think Intersect's very able house Executive Chef, Nick Martinez, would view it as something of an imposition if the guest chef were to stay on longer than that. But Martinez's sensitivites aren't really the point: I'm sure this is all contractual, governed by a fairly form Intersect contract. I usually try to make a point of going to Intersect the first week of a residency so I can experience the guest chef's
  5. There was some green garlic around, too. Spring Allium Heaven c’est arrive.
  6. RAAAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMPPPPPPPPSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (It was Mountain Sweet Berry. Ramps and potato chips: now THAT’S what I call one-stop shopping.)
  7. Rossi: La Lyra d'Orfeo/Arpa Davidica (Gens/Scheen/Bridelli/Jarousky/Orliński/Sabadus//Pluhar/L'Arpeggiata) David Garland: Verdancy 4 Stereolab: Empire Tomato Ketchup
  8. Omurice. With some third-rate white asparagus on the side. Amazing how one dinner (which was more a glorified breakfast) could use so many things that needed using. Including the wine. Bodegas Tradicion Fino Tradicion I won't lie: this wasn't as good as it was in the beginning of the week. It was good enough, though.
  9. This is a bizarre and possibly inappropriate question, but: Josh, at the GAP Greenmarket last Saturday, were you wearing a hoodie with a butterfly on the front? If so, I was right behind you on line at the fishmonger. (What with masks and all, it's hard to tell who anybody is.)
  10. There are some ramps at Union Market now -- but from Godknowswhere. Since I still have some Three-Cornered Leeks left (which, although I'll never say it out loud, are pretty much as good as ramps), I'll keep waiting till some truly local stuff shows up my Greenmarket (which, rampswise, is always a couple of weeks behind Union Square).
  11. I woke up this morning at like 4 AM and couldn't fall back to sleep. And, for reasons unknown, I was seized with this irresistible urge to reread Avengers No. 4, where Captain America comes back to life. I did (it took me about 20 minutes). But it wasn't till around 8 AM that I was able to put myself back to sleep.
  12. I can't help but note that The Times has changed that headline to "Excessive Drinking Has Risen". You don't think . . . .
  13. (Next bottle will go with a Montreal style steak.)

  15. Cheeseburger. Just like last time: with charred cordyceps and Three-Cornered Leeks. Only this time I remembered to put a rather gratuitous pickle on top. More Mountain Sweet Berry Farm potato chips on the side. And raw pea shoots in a za'atar vinaigrette. I'm the first person to ever think of having this wine with a burger. (JOKE) 2019 SARL Pierre-Olivier Bonhomme Le Telquel Mainly Gamay, as you know. You never know, in any given vintage, what else is mixed in (as you also know). Given the pepper I'm tasting, I'd be surprised if there wasn't a decent dose of Pineau d
  16. I know -- and this is the second photo of them this week!
  17. Bloviatrix gets a lot of mileage out of that skull-topped spear!
  18. Not that the OG Pictures at an Exhibition is any kind of good music.
  19. It's all too not your imagination.
  20. I have no idea how I could have not known this, but (retired) State Supreme Justice Eileen Bransten (before whom I appeared more than once) is Ruth McKenney's daughter, named after the sister (and Nathanael West's wife) who Ruth made famous
