Thrillist Feature: NYC’s Best Winter Cocktails

Monday, February 8, 2016 at 03:02 PM - Posted by Megan - (0) comments

While the weather outside might not be frightful just yet (what’s up, El Niño), it’s still the most wonderful time of the year. And there’s no better way to embrace the spirit of the season than with boozy holiday drinks. To help spread the joy, I tracked down some of best festive cocktails available now in New York City.

Lowlife Brings High-End Dining to the Lower East Side

Sunday, November 15, 2015 at 09:11 AM - Posted by Megan - (0) comments

Power duo Hugh Crickmore, former partner of Mas (farmhouse), and chef Alex Leonard, of two Michelin-starred Blanca, teamed up to open Lowlife on the Lower East Side.

Officially open to the public on Monday, the 70-seat restaurant showcases a thoughtful approach to seasonal ingredients. The à la carte menu, which draws inspiration from Japanese culinary techniques, features refined dishes—including lamb tartare with mint and shrimp salt, borscht with raw cream and trout roe, and yakitori-style chicken grilled on a robata—all elegantly plated, though the setting is casual and comfortable.

Leonard is embracing more complex techniques and flavor combinations, while allowing the ingredients to shine. Much of the kitchen’s produce hails from an organic Catskills farm owned by Crickmore’s brother, breads are sourced from Roberta’s in Brooklyn, and the chef makes his own vinegars, pickles, kimchee, freshly-churned butter, and cheese in-house.

With beautifully presented modern fare, a wine list focused on natural and sustainable winemaking, and a mid-century-modern-inspired interior, one thing is certain about this Stanton Street newcomer: there’s nothing lowlife about it.

New York’s most mouthwatering weekend is almost upon us. From October 16-19, the 2014 Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival will be taking the Big Apple by storm and tickets are still available for some of the most anticipated events and food-fueled festivities. Don’t miss out on the chance to experience world-class cuisine, wine and spirits, while mingling with culinary legends, superstar chefs and your favorite TV personalities.

Presented by Food & Wine, this four-day epicurean extravaganza is the only place where you can take down tacos and tequila with Bobby Flay, party in a pastry wonderland with Dominique Ansel, belly up to brunch and Bloodys with the Chopped judges, tailgate with Joe Namath, Mario Batali and the NY Jets, and rock ‘n’ roll with Morimoto and friends at a late-night karaoke and sushi soirée.

nycwffSnag still-available tickets to savor Southern-style brunch with Trisha Yearwood, crush pizza with (my Jersey girl crush) Jon Bon Jovi at La Sagra Slices, and curb every craving imaginable at the Saturday and Sunday Grand Tastings.

There are events to please every palate and at every price point—with locations from Manhattan’s West Side to Queens. And the best part is: proceeds from the festival benefit the Food Bank For New York City and Share Our Strength‘s No Kid Hungry campaign. Tickets are going fast—grab yours today and get ready to wine and dine to help end hunger.

Check out my coverage from previous NYCWFFs here, and let me know which events you’ll be attending. Hope to see you there!
