Big Joe Shares His Favorite Jersey Restaurants; 2 in a Series

I’m a big fan of restaurants that have a rich history and Bahrs Landing in Highlands has a wonderful rich tradition of serving Shore diners outstanding seafood since 1917. John Bahrs grabbed the kids and his boat and gathered clams and fish for the neighborhood over 100 years ago. I’ve been going to Bahrs since my grandfather took us there when I was just a kid. It’s been both a family destination and family owned for over 100 years. The restaurant business is tough and to have longevity is hard to come by. Bahrs is successful because it’s good.

Illegal East Village dining shed a sign of what’s to come

A duplex Japanese dining shed in the middle of East Fourth Street? Next, how about a caviar pavilion with a rooftop pool?. The city for once acted swiftly in nixing a flagrant violation of outdoor dining regulations. The fiasco demonstrated the urgency to turn anything-goes rules into a rational, public-respecting framework worthy of the Big Apple. Thanks to the Open Restaurants program to give struggling eateries an alfresco lifeline, owners threw up every ramshackle structure short of a skyscraper to cram in as many bodies as possible. Many of them actually doubled the number of seats without costing owners an additional dime in rent.

Celebrity Sommelier charged with arson by setting nearby restaurants’ outdoor dining structures on fire

Al Masry Egyptian market opens in Selden

A few months ago I had never tasted Egyptian food. Then in April, I found my way to Aubergine food truck in Plainview and was initiated into the mysteries of koshari (the Egyptian national dish, a savory pileup of rice, lentils, pasta topped with tomato sauce, fried onions and chickpeas). Now, a scant four months later, comes Al Masry Grocery, a new Egyptian market in Selden.

NYC’s Saint Theo's: An Italian Restaurant That Honors Venice

Just a short walk from the briny breezes of the Hudson River, a new trattoria inspired by the flavors of Italy’s many coasts is now open in the West Village: Saint Theo’s. Between the cozy banquettes, crisp white tablecloths, and Murano glass, an elegant blend of green – think: basil, mint, and pistachio – greets the eye, as if interior architect Martin Brudnizki (from the Bellagio, Annabel’s, and Harry’s Bar) dreamed up a restaurant that could feel like a palate cleanser for the body.

10 types of tomatoes we aspire to eat every day this summer

Every month, Melina Hammer, Food52's very own Hudson Valley correspondent, is serving up all the bounty that upstate New York has to offer. We have entered my favorite season: the season of gorging on tomatoes. I grow both hybrid and heirloom tomatoes at Catbird Cottage, and once the first fruits have ripened, after a gleeful harvest, there are BLT sandwiches and numerous batches of sauce and confit that follow. I clear the calendar to bottle my surplus, preserving the season so I can enjoy their exceptional flavor year-round.
