2014 Time Out New York Food & Drink Awards

Tuesday, March 25, 2014 at 01:03 PM - Posted by Megan - (0) comments

It was another exciting year for the New York City dining scene, with new spots boasting everything from amped-up Asian to seductive Spanish to reimagined Italian. And last night, Time Out New York held their annual industry awards to honor the very best new restaurants, bars and chefs.

Taking over Marquee nightclub, the 2014 Food & Drink Awards presented by Stella Artois paid tribute to the city’s culinary finest in a grand celebration attended by top toques, restauranteurs, mixologists and industry insiders. Guests sampled signature dishes from nominated spots, including Toro, Pearl & Ash, Betony, Bunker and Dominique Ansel Bakery, and sipped craft cocktails created by Golden Cadillac, Betony, Attaboy and The Long Island Bar.

TONY readers voted for their faves to determine ten winners in the Readers’ Choice categories—top honors included Best New Restaurant (Carbone), Chef of the Year (Mario Carbone and Rich Torrisi), Best New Sushi (Sushi Nakazawa), Best New Cocktail Bar (The Dead Rabbit), Best New Southeast Asian (Uncle Boon’s) and Best Brand Extension (Lafayette). Additionally, ten Critics’ Picks were presented, in aptly named categories ranging from the Dirty Disco Award (Golden Cadillac) and the “Soy, Vey!” Award (Ivan Ramen) to the Global 180 Award (Mission Cantina) and the Mad Scientist Cooks At Home Award (Alder). All twenty coveted awards were handed out during the event and the full list of this year’s winners can be found here.

Many congrats to all the talented 2014 winners and nominees!

Tribeca Gets Distilled: New Modern Pub Now Open

Thursday, June 6, 2013 at 11:06 AM - Posted by Megan - (0) comments

In the heart of Tribeca, a modern rendition of a classic American public house is born. The sprawling landmarked space on the corner of West Broadway and Franklin is now home to Distilled, an inviting restaurant with floor-to-ceiling windows, an open kitchen, chef’s counter, raw bar and elevated outdoor patio for the warm summer months.

 
Young hotshot exec chef Shane Lyons, formerly of Momofuku Noodle Bar, showcases elevated comfort food in his creative, globally-flavored menu. You’ll find hearty bar snacks like beer-battered onion rings and Distilled’s signature wings, along with entrées of country fried duck & French toast-style waffles drizzled with smoked Serrano maple syrup, and 24-hour slow cooked pork ribs accompanied by watermelon, red onions and pickled mustard seed. A selection of sweet treats includes an apple pie soda float and strawberry cheesecake with pink peppercorn, rhubarb and mascarpone.

Celebrated mixologists Sheldon Wiley and Benjamin Wood are the dynamic duo behind Distilled’s beverage program, which features specialty signature drinks like the ‘Tribecan’ with bourbon, Carpano Antica, chocolate bitters, lemon oil and absinthe rinse, and the ‘Derby Shrub’ with Amaro CioCiaro, apricot shrub, chamomile-infused rye and fresh mint. Not only do my buds Sheldon and Ben totally rock, but their cocktails are killer—making Distilled’s bar definitely one to belly up to. A wine list featuring regional American and international varieties, along with an array of craft beers, round out the beverage offerings.

Check out the full menu here and stay up-to-date on this hot new spot by following Distilled on Facebook and Twitter.
