  • The Reopening Rush
    19 Apr 2021 • 5 min read • 4 0
    I got my second vaccination shot (Pfizer if you’re wondering) the Tuesday morning before last. And Saarim did, too. We were lucky in that the first dose didn’t really affect us, and figured if we were...
  • What I want to cook and how I like to eat
    04 Apr 2021 • 5 min read • 3 0
    Cookbooks are portals into intersecting worlds: geographies, cooking philosophies, practiced craft and nerdy technique, personalities and styles, family stories, the lives of restaurants. The possibil...
  • Spring is here!
    21 Mar 2021 • 5 min read • 3 0
    Spring is here and I feel happy. As I write this I’m sitting at my dining room table drinking my second coffee of the day, the door is open to my balcony, it’s 50 degrees and brightly sunny, and live ...
  • Give me all the groceries
    07 Mar 2021 • 4 min read • 1 0
    One of my favorite activities is food shopping. Sadly, what was once a wholesome and necessary outing has been punctured by fear and aggressive feelings towards strangers over the past many months. An...
  • In the void
    22 Feb 2021 • 5 min read • 5 1
    I’m dreaming of summer days when everyone I know is vaccinated. If that turns out to not be the case, at least we’ll be able to spend more time together outside. I promise to host glorious picnics. Pe...
  • Winter Adventures in the Time of COVID
    07 Feb 2021 • 3 min read
    Kaleidoscopic crumbs melted on our tongues, complemented by a satisfyingly starchy and savory flavor. We were eating yucca fries in my car, parked in the lot off Route 9W in Newburgh that houses the a...

  • Then vs. Now
    24 Jan 2021 • 3 min read • 2 0
    I’ve been rewatching Mad Men. We’re on season six. There was much more drinking than there was eating in the lives of 1960s advertising execs, according to the show. Most meals take place at home, in ...
  • January in Brooklyn
    10 Jan 2021 • 2 min read • 2 0
    The first thing I ate in 2021 was a guava and cheese donut “inside” Guevara’s pink parklet. Their set up reminds me of Mexico City but becomes less charming after 20 minutes when the overhead heaters ...
  • December in Manhattan
    20 Dec 2020 • 2 min read • 1 0
    It was 26 degrees outside but we went to Minetta Tavern because I wanted a burger. I hadn’t had a beef burger in a long time. I guess I did have one this past summer, still kind of a long time ago, bu...
  • The Neighborhood Bakery Project

    Some Meals will remain free until I figure out if and how I want to professionalize it. That may never happen! But please do forward it to any friends who you think might enjoy reading it. You can alw...

  • Outdoor Muzak

    The first time I went Mexico City I did as many first-time tourists do and made a reservation to tour Luis Barragán’s house and studio (or “Casa Estudio Luis Barragán”), a property he built in 1947. S...
  • The New Wave of Restaurants
    15 Nov 2020 • 4 min read • 1 0
    Around late April or early May, ideas began to stir. It had been over a month since much of the restaurant industry’s workforce was furloughed and sent home. There was no clear timeline for reopening....
  • Sorry, no news here!
    08 Nov 2020 • 1 min read
    I spent all morning writing a newsletter only to decide it was boring, so I’m back to square one. It’s been a week. My brain is fried. This is a list of things I ate while in limbo. My mom’s Chicken i...
  • Leftovers across state lines
    01 Nov 2020 • 4 min read • 2 1
    Last Saturday morning, I drove to Philly to visit my friend Tabi for the day. The evening prior I placed an order for some pastries and a breakfast sandwich from K’far to pick up upon my arrival. And ...
  • On New York food
    18 Oct 2020 • 3 min read • 1 2
    Flatbush for Salvadoran. Astoria for Bangladeshi. Chinatown for Cantonese. Over the past week, I’ve traveled to each of these neighborhoods for specific cuisines. I’ve always loved to do this, and I’v...
  • A rule to live by
    11 Oct 2020 • 3 min read • 1 1
    “If you see a line, get on it” is something my mom used to tell me. It was a rule of life to be followed especially while traveling, and you’d be rewarded with delicious memories. Unfortunately, the r...
  • Everyone wants to be in New York right now
    04 Oct 2020 • 3 min read
    I ran into an old family friend on lower Canal Street the other night. He told me he’s been thinking about leaving for a bit, maybe to LA or so, but that people keep coming here, so he’s stayed put. “...
  • “Worth a special journey”

    Utah trails only California and Alaska in states with the most national parks. There are five in total, all located in the Southern part of the state: Zion, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, Bryce, and Arche...
  • The art of sandwiches
    13 Sep 2020 • 2 min read • 2 0
    Barbecue fanatics, Italian sub savants, and turkey club lovers listen up because I’ve got a hot take: true sandwich artistry lies in a masterful vegetarian creation. Hear me out. If you’re a legendary...
  • A molino comes to Bed-Stuy
    07 Sep 2020 • 2 min read • 5 0
    I was supposed to go to Mexico City on March 19th for a short trip with friends. For obvious reasons, that didn’t happen. We pushed it back to Labor Day weekend, but that didn’t happen either. I would...
  • Vacation is elusive
    30 Aug 2020 • 3 min read • 2 0
    I drove up to Maine last week with some friends for a vacation, or so I thought. We swam in lakes, cooked together, went blueberry picking, drank lots of wine. It was refreshing to get away, be somewh...
  • Summertime bliss is still possible
    16 Aug 2020 • 2 min read • 1 0
    I used to not like summer that much, probably because I was an insecure kid that spent too many months at a Jewish sleepaway camp, where the repressed emotional stress of kind of fitting in but not co...
  • Where do diners come in?
    09 Aug 2020 • 3 min read • 2 0
    In thinking and writing about the pandemic’s impact on restaurants and the ways in which the industry should change, I keep coming back to the role of the guest. I’ve been paying attention to how cust...
