This cozy dish is perfect comfort food for the deep dark days of winter. It’s aromatic, filing, and the type of yummy that keeps you coming back for seconds, and licking your plate clean.
As winter’s cold embrace envelops the state of New York, we seek shelter in dishes that provide comfort through warmth (and butter). Try BTR'S Hannah Sutker's killer recipe for pesto!
Farm Road Hospitality opened a pop-up at Madison Square Eats this September in the hopes of spreading the word about their upcoming brick and mortar shop. The team curates delicious state fair-inspired food and boasts a seasoned chef who has worked at countless places, including Momofuku.
In Hoboken, NJ, The Stewed Cow boasts a mechanical bull, serves up rare whiskeys, and has a mean brunch special for only $20. Here, patrons can find Old Fashioneds, bacon, heaps of brisket, and tons of biscuits.
Just because it’s Happiness week here at BTR doesn’t mean that Pharell song is any good. It’s still terrible. But, I’m eternally happy that I was able to take my vegan buddy out for a little b-day meal where he could order more than just some weak, stir-fried veggie after-thought. We went to Udupi Palace in the Mission District here in San Francisco Udupi Palace. I have a love/ love relationship with Indian cuisine because it’s so intensely flavorful. I have a love/ hate relationship with most Indian restaurants because I sometimes feel as if they’ve all conspired to offer just a basic, uninspired menu that always screams to me “they won’t know the difference anyway.” There are so many distinct cuisines within India that aren’t represented and I think deserve to be put on show. We get it. You have Tikka Masala and Nann. Nice. Anyway, Udupi Place is doing it right and it’s all vegetarian and vegan. Hanabi went H.A.M. on some shortbread recipes. You do realize he eats all this stuff so you don’t have to right? Insane Dane, what can I say? He’s out there eating at places called OM Cafe. I hope he’s expensing this stuff. Oh, and then he did a great write up for Dish + Drink about comfort food. I have to say the part about bacon-cheese fries from Nathan’s is just amazing.
In the spirit of comfort food for Happiness Week, I thought today would be the perfect time to share an update on a classic: spaghetti and meatballs. This isn’t your grandmother’s spaghetti and meatballs, though, because this recipe calls for a combination of summer squash and zucchini noodles as well as ground turkey instead of ground beef.
From cheese fries to grilled cheese to spaghetti, our favorites have one thing in common: carbohydrates.
This three cheese macaroni and cheese recipe also includes black pepper, bourbon, and soy milk. The bourbon and black pepper add a nice punch and kick, respectively, while the soy milk adds a sweetness that pairs well with the bourbon.
On the west end of Portland, Maine's Congress Street sits Hot Suppa, a cozy restaurant serving up southern comfort classics. For the Fourth of July, we are celebrating our nation with a fusion of American favorites.
For a good time call Big Daddy's (and get your booze on).
Fried chicken and champagne aren't Birds & Bubbles only strong suit.
