Eco friendly restuarant

Cafe Habana has added a new bundle of joy to the family: Habana Outpost. Located in Brooklyn. Everything you see is recycled, from the hospitable picnic tables in the garden to the old truck they have turned into a functioning kitchen. And, yes, the outpost has the same delicious grilled corn as the Nolita locations and does a mean brunch. Inside and out, Habana Outpost is an explosion of color. The atmosphere, like the food, offers the best in what they call, “traditional Latin fare with a unique Cuban and Central Mexican twist.” As though the food and bright atmosphere weren’t enough, the Outpost hosts a bevy of weekly activities: free movies every Sunday at 8pm, weekend markets designed to support local businesses and monthly art and design exhibits, and events for the kids.

prison food

Italian Prisons don’t bring to mind anything pleasing and most people would do anything possible to stay out of one. However there is one prison outside of Pisa that people are clamoring to get into. Inside of the 500-year-old Fortezza Medicea resides a restaurant like no other in the world. Behind its maximum security shell, criminals cook and serve delicious food in a quaint chamber-like restaurant. Maybe a little Filetto di Manzo. Leave it to the Italians to make me hungry. via NTDWA

wine by design

Admittedly I do not know much about wine except for which vineyards I like, and that zinfandel and pinot noir are my jam. What attracted me to ridge wines was their label, simple and clean. The wine itself is great and does the job to the point where I can sit gazing admirably at the label. Full circle.

burger creation

I thought that I had it down when I would order the Wild Billy Burger (filet mignon on an english muffin) with brie and bacon from the Childe Harold in DC. Forget about it. Via the Gothamist, over at the google cafeteria today they are serving the Bacon Krispy Kreme Burger. What I would give for a taste.
