Weekend Wrapup - Edible Edition

In lieu of recapping what I did this weekend, I might as well just tell you what I ate. 

  • Zapp's potato chips, fried oysters with comeback sauce, beef jerky, Tom's balls (at Porchlight)
  • Melty fontina, chicken liver and foie terrine, beef tartare, arugula salad, chocolate peanut butter mousse (at The Red Cat)
  • Scrambled eggs with Flying Pigs Farm sausage, kale, onions, and cheddar (at home)
  • Bo Ssam (at Momofuku Ssam Bar)
  • Cold peanut noodles, assorted dumplings, lobster roll (at Smorgasburg)
  • Chocolate ice cream soda (at Shake Shack)
  • Cheeseburger (from the Burger Joint) and salt and vinegar fries (from Sticky's Finger Joint)
  • 1/2 a PB&J on whole wheat (pre-5K run) and 1/2 an onion bagel with cream cheese (post 5k-run)
  • Cheese & crackers, veggies & dip, cheeseburger & salad (at Carrie's backyard BBQ)
  • Small bits of octopus, pasta primavera, and steak (at Alta)

I think it may take me the rest of the summer to recover.

Gone Too Soon


Thinking of Josh Ozersky this morning -- he died yesterday at age 47, which is way too young, and the whole thing still just seems somewhat unreal. We weren't close -- I knew him mostly from the early food blogging days (as pictured above from this 2007 NYT article) -- but he was the sort of person with whom I'd always stop and chat when we bumped into each other on the street or at an event. RIP, Josh. May your afterlife be filled with as much gusto as your life here on earth.
