So here we are, another weekend looming before us, and while we all certainly have lots of other things on our minds, we all still have to eat. And that’s where we come in.
Below is a list of everything cool, new interesting or delicious that we’ve been looking at in the past week, offered as a reminder that even though the world might be going to hell, we can always still send it off with a slice, a cocktail and a grilled cheese sandwich.
Last week, Luke’s Lobster (130 South 17th Street) launched its winter menu. And while yes, they still have the city’s most ideal interpretation of the New England-style lobster roll (the right kind of split-top roll, just a hint of mayonnaise, no goddamn celery) and a whole lot of other seafood-based lunch options, they have added three new items for the season and, really, you should go there right now and try all of them.
It’s National Grilled Cheese Day because some people need a made up holiday to celebrate the grilled cheese. But not us at Foobooz World Headquarters. After all, I’ve called a grilled cheese by Bobby Flay “an explosion of taste in my mouth” and Jason Sheehan recently admitted that a grilled cheese matters to him more than a thick steak or even a lobster tail. As if today’s weather wasn’t enough of a reason to go for a grilled cheese at lunchtime, maybe this list will inspire you.
