Chef Lindsay McClain, from Jamonera (and former Chopped champion), is bringing her game to the Garage tomorrow and will be serving completely gluten-free Seoul Food this Thursday, starting at 6 p.m.

The all-Korean menu will include Korean pork tacos, vegetarian Korean shiitake tacos and kimchi fried rice, as well as Barbuzzo‘s legendary (and very non-Korean) budinofor dessert.

The event is a first-come first-served type deal, so you’d better get there as soon as work lets out and grab your tacos and budino before they’re gone.

It’s A Summer Seafood Party On 13th Street

summerseafood.jpgSummer ain’t over yet. At least not on 13th Street, where Marcie Turney and Val Safran are running three nights of seafood specials at their restaurants to celebrate all the bountiful (and delicious) sea critters we eat during the hottest months.

From Sunday, August 10, through Tuesday, August 12, there will be special seafood-inspired menus, with beverage pairings, offered at each of their four popular Midtown Village restaurants. We’re talking ceviches at Lolita, a crab boil at Jamonera, lobster spaghetti at Little Nonna’s, and a mixed seafood grill at Barbuzzo. The dinners are running $45 per person (which includes a paired drink), excluding tax and gratuity. Check out all the menus after the jump.

churros jamoneraIf you’re anything like me you’re looking forward to starting your Christmas shopping this weekend. And if you’re really like me, you’re already looking forward to the distractions that will keep you from completing your shopping.

One option that is sure to beckon like a siren, churros and chocolate at Jamonera. From 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturday the 21st, the Midtown Village tapas hotspot will be offering churros for $8 plus some hot drinks.

One Night Only: Hop Sing Laundromat And Jamonera Are Throwing A Late-Night Party

28_Jamonera_Emily_Frances_Olson

Clear your schedules for Monday, August 12 (and probably the morning after, too) because for one night only, from 10pm ’til 1am, Lee from Hop Sing is going to descend on Marcie Turney and Val Safran’s Jamonera for a party.

Hop Sing will be doing the cocktails (natch) and Turney’s kitchen crew will be doing “Marcie’s late night staff snacks” for all in attendance. The price tag is modest with bar snacks going for just $5, cocktails running $10 each (which, if you know the kind of liquor Lee slings, is just ridiculously cheap) and wine, sangria and beers going for $5, $4 and $3, respectively.

What else do we know? No gate. No dress code. And no photos, so leave the cell phones in your pockets.

But hey, this will probably be more fun than anyone should be allowed to have on a Monday so maybe photographic evidence might not be the best idea anyhow…
