When it comes to Thanksgiving, you want your meal to be as easy as possible to serve and eat. You can easily make your Thanksgiving meal ahead of time with tips from some of the best restaurant chefs in New York. The main dish of roast turkey can be prepared in the days before Thanksgiving and frozen. Add a bit of butter on top of the turkey to put moisture back into the meat.
Turkey or chicken stock can be used to make gravy that you can also freeze and heat up to serve with dinner. Add a little salt and pepper when it’s heated for flavor. Green bean casserole is a popular dish for Thanksgiving. You can make the casserole before Thanksgiving and freeze it for a day or two. When you heat the casserole, top it with onions instead of freezing it with the onions. Whipped sweet potatoes are a delicious dish that can be made ahead of time. When you reheat them, add chopped pecans, brown sugar and marshmallows to complete the dish. If you want to freeze your stuffing, then consider pouring melted butter and broth over the top of the dish when it’s reheated so that it has a bit of moisture. Almost the entire Thanksgiving meal can be prepared ahead of time so that all you have to do is take the dishes out and heat them before putting them on the table.
President Donald Trump loves fast food. He extolled the virtues of McDonalds in a Town Hall meeting with Anderson Cooper, and was photographed many times on the campaign trail devouring everything from Kentucky Fried Chicken to a super-sized taco bowl. Donald Trump’s culinary approach is in stark contrast to Michelle and Barrack Obama’s healthy diet. Michelle Obama used to tease the former president for only eating seven, lightly salted almonds as an evening snack. However, while Donald Trump loves fast food, that doesn’t mean fast food loves President Trump.
Villa Italian Kitchen began as a single pizzeria on Broadway in 1964. Today, Villa Italian Kitchen is a 300 location chain found mostly in food courts across America. Perhaps its location on Broadway, next to the Ed Sullivan Theater, contributed to its sense of political humor.
Since Trump’s inauguration, special advisor Kellyanne Conway has used the phrase “alternative facts.” The phrase is a sort of rallying cry against the media, which the Trump administration says didn’t accurately report the size of the crowd at the inauguration. Of course, alternative facts are not facts; they’re falsehoods. Or to put it another way: the alternative to facts is fictions. The Villa Italian Kitchen saw the phrase at a great marketing tool.
The Villa Italian Kitchen now offers an Alternative Facts Pizza. The thick, carb-heavy crust is loaded with bacon, pepperoni, ham, sausage and mozzarella cheese, yet the company claims it has zero calories. Yes, a post-facts world is a wonderful place if you want to eat fatty foods. The Alternative Facts Pizza has no effect on your waistline, nor will it clog arteries or raise blood pressure. Villa Italian Kitchen’s Alternative Facts Pizza is just one of many recent food items lampooning the new Trump administration.
When it comes to the fast-paced hustle and bustle of New York City, food trucks are there to provide quick and delicious food. But, did you know that behind every Bahn Mi and onion-covered hot dog, there was a illegal movement making it all possible?
For the past thirty years, the state has been working with outdated food vendor legislation. New York has a ridiculous restrictive cap on the number of food-vendor permits available. With only 3,000 up for grabs, an illegal scheme was created by those that could get their hands on a permit. Potential food vendors could “rent” overpriced permits from the legal owner on a sort of black market food permit trade. Some people are literally paying thousands of dollars to be able to operate their food vendor business.
However, the Street Vending Modernization Act could change all of this. If this bill passes, this would mean that the number of available permits would increase and continue to increase as the years went by.
Supporters of the bill explain that not only would the Street Vending Modernization Act help out the thousands of people on the permit waiting list, but also help inspire a surge of new street food options.
Currenty food vendor feels such pressure to make a profit to keep their permit that they only sell tried and true favorites, such as hot dogs. However, if the pressure is lifted with the introduction of more permits, perhaps food vendors will take some chances on their menu offerings.
A few minutes ago, I had the opportunity to read a recent online article about a new Whole Foods 365 store that will be coming to the Fort Greene section of Brooklyn, NYC in early 2018. The 365 stores are sort of like discount versions of the regular stores, with lots of store-brand products in stock.
According to the article that I read, it has been two and a half years since Whole Foods revealed plans for the 365 chain. The planned 365 store in Brooklyn is slated to open at the 35-story Ashland Place development in Fort Greene.
Apparently, the first 365 store opened in Los Angeles, then other stores opened in Lake Oswego, Oregon and Bellevue, Washington. At some point in the future, an Apple store is also supposed to be situated at the Ashland Place site.
Most of the new Whole Foods 365 stores are smaller in square footage than regular Whole Foods stores. Each store is expected to have fewer employees than at the standard stores, and less variety of items will be offered. The 365 store coming to Brooklyn, however, is actually going to be 43,000 square feet, which is larger than the 365 stores that are already in operation.
Grocery shopping is something that I enjoy and also take seriously. Although I live near a traditional Whole Foods store, I’ve only shopped there once. Even though I was impressed by the quality of the produce, breads, and seafood that I saw, I thought that the overall prices of the items there were too high for my pocketbook.
Hopefully, the 365 chain will be well-received by consumers. As long as they keep their prices as low as possible, people will come.
In 2004, Thomas Keller, the American chef best known for his landmark restaurant The French Laundry, opened Per Se in the Time Warner Center at Columbus Circle. Per Se is the East Coast version of Keller’s famed Napa Valley restaurant. The New York Times named Per Se the best restaurant in New York in 2011. The three Michelin star property features a nine-course tasting menu and an award-winning wine list. Per Se is currently the third most expensive restaurant in the world, with the average guest spending $851.
According to the food critic Pete Wells, with each review, a restaurant needs to earn its stars again. In a recent New York Times review, Wells claimed Per Se struggled to live up to its lofty expectations. Mediocrity had crept into one of the country’s best restaurant like a New York City rat. Wells called Per Se “respectably dull.” Wells downgraded Per Se from a four star restaurant to a two star restaurant. For a dining establishment that once brought in a ballet dancer to teach servers how to slip around tables, losing two stars is unthinkable.
As a food critic, Pete Wells is known for his brutal honesty and colorful rhetoric. His reviews have flair and could never be described as “respectably dull.” But are they accurate? In a 2012 review of Guy Fieri’s American Kitchen and Bar, in Times Square, Wells took the knives out and delivered one of the most scathingly entertaining restaurant reviews of all time. While the review was entertaining, some people thought it was unfair. His critique of Thomas Keller’s fine dinning beacon has also come under fire. Nevertheless, New York has a rich history of dinning establishments getting a dressing down. Even French laundry gets dirty.
People around the world are familiar with The Four Seasons restaurant. This iconic New York City restaurant opened in 1959 at 99 East 52nd Street. Here, chefs introduced Americans to the idea of dining on culinary dishes that rotated with the changing seasons. It was also one of the first fine restaurants to print a menu in English. For over fifty years, people enjoyed fine dining in the restaurant. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end. In June 2015, it was announced the lease for the restaurant would not be renewed. The Four Seasons closed its doors on July 16, 2016.
After the restaurant closed, many people wondered what would replace it. Now, we know it will be a restaurant from the partners in a company called Major Food Group, and the three men behind the company have big shoes to fill. The previous tenant of the space was a legendary power dining area. Executives and stock brokers did business there all the time. The new restaurant will have to appeal to these people again. This is why the three men behind Major Food Group recently sat in the empty space trying dish after dish. They wanted to know exactly what food should be served in their new restaurant. After sampling duck, pork, figs, mushrooms, and more, the men were no closer to making a final decision. In fact, the only firm decisions they had been made involved the kitchen. The kitchen was freshly renovated. Almost everything else is still up in the air.
If this uncertainty in such a famous space unsettles, you don’t worry. The Four Seasons will reopen on Park Avenue at a future date. Until then, you’ll just have to make do with what these guys come up with. Hopefully, it will be delicious!
