All About a Patty Melt

patty-melt

The prices for some of these things in NYC are crazy, but I guess that’s what you have to pay for delicious. I was first introduced to the patty melt during a brief semester at Ole Miss, and the craving for this burger topped with onions and cheese, crammed between two slices of rye doused in butter, and finished in a frying pan has never relented. If it’s on the menu, it’s being ordered.

Boot and Shoe in Lakeshore Oakland. I like that the food is pretty simple, pizza with great crust, salads that are properly dressed and not too fussy and sort of weird deserts that are good but not what I would normally get. The menu is not very big and changes slightly seasonally. You know pretty much everything on it is going to be good. The Margherita pizza is something we usually order and the Burrata appetizer is good when they have it. My lady (Nicole) and I like to go there at the end of a long week on the late side—it’s a nice atmosphere, busy but not insane, and the staff is always really nice. You can tell its a place that was really considered and not just dressed up to be fancy and they have some really nice art in there.”

Kate Moss’s Champagne Titty

kate-moss-champagne-glass-coupe-titty

In a tradition allegedly dating back to Marie Antoinette, a body part that we’ve seen thousands of times now has its own Champagne coupe modeled after it. That’s right, Kate Moss’s left breast has been the inspiration for the shape of this cup—moulded while the supermodel was pregnant for extra volume—by Lucien Freud’s daughter, British sculptor Jane McAdam Freud. Commissioned by Richard Caring’s Mayfair restaurant 34 to celebrate Moss’s 25 years of service in the fashion industry, the glass will be available for use beginning in October at 34 and its three sister restaurants across London. It’s without a doubt the closest you’ll ever get to partying with the fashion icon, and the only way to classily cop a feel.

“One of my favorite places to venture out and grab some nourishment during downtime is The Black Cat on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, or Silver Lake to be exact. It’s in the neighborhood of the studio and has a chill tailored atmosphere for lunch or a night out. Los Angeles has a lot of unique pockets and Silver Lake richly nurtures its creative residents. This establishment is located in Sunset Junction across the street from Intelligencia coffee and Café Stella, which are both excellent refueling stops as well.

“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.”

A Taste of Hawaii in Brooklyn

brooklyn-wahines
 
Taking over the night-shift four days a week at Stan’s Cafecito, Brooklyn Wahines is Oahu native Siobhán Edwards’ new pop-up restaurant in South Williamsburg. Born out of her NYC catering company Red Wagon, the casual spot features a menu with Hawaiian / French Vietnamese influences, and consists of four extraordinary dishes; a Hawaiian Style Ahi Poke Bowl, Shoyu Chicken Bowl, Banh Mi sandwiches, and a Japanese Hiyashi Chuka noodle salad. Curious as to the roots of the restaurant and its future plans, we asked Siobhán some questions and she was nice enough to share a recipe from Brooklyn Wahines, Japanese Hiyashi Chuka noodle salad.
 
 
How did Brooklyn Wahines come about?

Brooklyn Wahines was a dream I had since moving to New York and starting my catering company, Red Wagon, three years ago. I always wanted a small neighborhood spot that allowed me not only to showcase some of my favorite dishes but also a chance to enjoy the hospitality side of the food business and be a part of the neighborhood that I live and raise my children in. Wahine means woman in Hawaiian so the name Brooklyn Wahines is simply representative of a forever local island girl at heart who now also calls Brooklyn home.
 
The menu looks delicious. What’s been the most popular dish?

The mouth watering smell of the shoyu chicken is what draws people into the restaurant without fail, but word is getting around that my pork banh mi sandwich are the real deal.
 
What happens at the end of the summer? Do you have any plans for a permanent space?

I’m hoping to continue Brooklyn Wahines beyond the summer. If things continue to grow as they have been, we hope to become a permanent face in this neighborhood and a fixture in Williamsburg’s evolving food scene.
