“Summer in a Bowl”

This flower soup at Box Kite in the East Village looks ridiculous. According to the restaurant’s instagram, it’s “a cocktail of fermented tomato & dashi, burpless cucumber, flowers and beach peas.”

Fat Snacks

Throwing calories to wind, we eat whatever we want and then tell you about it.

Ideal for a late breakfast, the ice cream donut sandwich at Peter Pan Donut & Pastry Shop is an off-menu item that’s on par with the idea behind this column. The particular variation above features salted caramel banana chip ice cream between a halved chocolate cake donut, but get whatever you want, as your creation is only limited by their stock that day.

There’s No Beer at the Dogfish Inn

Ironic? Yes. But that doesn’t mean you can’t make your way down the road to the Dogfish brewpub for some suds, or head in the opposite direction to the Dogfish Head Craft Brewery for some Bocce, and brews to bring back to the inn. Thoughtfully designed by Studio Tack in Brooklyn, the Dogfish Inn is a 16 room escape on the quiet coast of Delaware, home to some of the cleanest beaches in America. Rates start at $250 / night

The Perks of Eating at the MLB All-Star Game

hangover-burger
 
For the fan, a baseball game is as much about the hang out as it is about the game. Those lucky enough to be in attendance at tonight’s All-Star game in Minneapolis will have the opportunity to watch the best players in action and eat some terribly good food while doing it. In addition to pouring beers for themselves in the new self-serve draft machines, fans at Target Field can select from an array of new food including: Lobster Corn Dogs, a 1 lb Hangover Burger (10 ounces of ground beef, six ounces of ground bacon, fried egg & fried onions), and a Footlong BratDog (a hot dog inside of a bratwurst that’s been wrapped in bacon and covered with sauerkraut and onions). Chances are those who indulge in the offerings will have trouble leaving their seats afterwards, but hey, there’s a game happening anyway.
