Blistered Shishitos, Chilled Oysters and the Perfect Cocktail Sauce

By on January 3, 2016

Here’s an appy course to rock your New Year.  Pour a nice glass of cold Sancerre.  Fire up some blistered shishitos, tossed with some S&P and a bit of garlic powder.  Shuck a fat icy plate of chilled oysters — maybe some Bluepoints and Montauk Pearls.   And however gauche, I’ll still…

Summer Melon Skewers

By on July 11, 2013

As easy as good.  The cracked pepper and lime zest skews interesting.

Moonshine Bloody Mary with Bacon Cube

By on February 18, 2013

  

Here’s a bloody that’ll sear a hole right through your Sunday morning. Garnished with a bacon cube! What’s not to love.

 

Now there are two schools of thought on bloodies. Regular vodka, gently garnished with a celery stalk, or maybe a carrot stick if it’s getting crazy.  

 

And then…

37 Second Bar Snack

By on May 10, 2012

I trot out a bar snack now and again.  And again.  Umm, and again.   This one’s so easy, knocking off what we had with friends D&J at David Burke Kitchen on the bare edge of SoHo. Served at the bar while our table was getting ready.  A good…

Moonshine Lemonade. Let’s make it crazy summer.

By on January 14, 2012

Ok so it’s cold now.  Not much green in our fair city, and no vacay planned.  We need us a shot o’ front-porch rocking chair weeping willow Southern summer.   And Beantown-cum-Florida Steve recently dispatched a decidedly below Mason-Dixon rib recipe — a must-try, and came out great.  To…

Spicy Smokey Marcona Bar Nuts

By on October 29, 2011

What’s better than Marcona almonds.  They come salted and lightly fried in sunflower oil.  Now I should just leave that alone.  Well, maybe we’ll trick out half of them…
The Prep:

Marcona almonds – I get these from Whole Foods.  Fresh Direct doesn’t carry them yet.
Oven to 425º
Set aside half the…

Greek-Style Lamb Sliders. Opa! (can i say that?)

By on August 19, 2011

There’s not much wrong with these sliders.  I mean really.   Toasted brioche roll, oregano-seasoned lamb, black olive tapenade, feta cheese, tzatziki, tomato slice, pickled red onions and mint leaves.  All in a 4-bite package.  We did these on a Saturday night up on the roof deck with some…

Arrrg. The Salty Dog.

By on July 1, 2011

Summertime cocktails.  Something light, a little sharp.  Cut right through that NYC humidity.   Maybe a Greyhound.  Hmm. Maybe some citrus salt on the rim.  Now that’s a Salty Dog.  Arrrg.
The Prep:
Do-aheads

Simple syrup.  Equal parts sugar and water, heated until the sugar dissolves.  Cool and funnel into a squeeze…
