Date September 23, 2013

“Good things to those who wait.”  Or so they say.  When it comes to sweet food videos, however, there’s no time like the present. Smorgasburg is a food festival unlike any other in New York City. It crashes into the Brooklyn coast each weekend through November – Saturdays in Williamsburg and Sundays in DUMBO [...]

“I not only think about food all day,” said Henry Miller in “Tropic of Cancer,” “but I dream about it at night.” NYC Food Guy, he dreams about cheeseburgers. Big, dinner plate-sized sandwiches filled with juicy beef patties [...]

What to eat this weekend: Cemita’s Mexican Sandwiches at Smorgasburg in Williamsburg, Brooklyn

Date October 28, 2011

The cemita is the Rolls Royce of Mexican sandwiches; no extravagance is spared. From bottom to top: black beans, mayo, meat, lettuce, tomato, pickled onion, stringy Mexican white cheese, avocado, papalo – a pungent Mexican herb whose strength puts cilantro to shame – and a spread of stewed chipotle pepper, all enclosed in a [...]

Best Bite of The Week: First Prize Pies S’Mores Pie at Fatty Cue (plus the full recipe)

Date May 21, 2010

What’s better than BBQ and pie? How about when the pie is arguably better than the BBQ? This was the thought running through my mind upon tasting First Prize Pies S’Mores Pie ($6/slice) last week at Fatty Cue. All of the Southeast Asian-inspired BBQ was spot on, but when someone can take a foolproof [...]

It’s pretty cool being the first person to try a new drink.  Thursday night at Fatty Cue, NYC Food Guy received this honor alongside Hagan the Wandering Foodie and Andy from Wined & Dined.  Adam the bartender calls his $8, Thai-inspired pickle back “Tong Po,” a reference to the pony-tailed villain from the 1989 Jean-Claude [...]

First Taste: Newark Double & Chocolate Truffles at St. Anselm in Williamsburg, Brooklyn

Date May 10, 2010

Like a baseball scout keeping tabs on an up-and-coming prospect, I’ve become a fried food scout.  I first read about St. Anselm’s Newark Double in August 2009 and I’ve been craving it ever since.  Much more than just another New Jersey sandwich overstuffed with fried food, this bad boy features two deep fried, custom made [...]

Williamsburg, Brooklyn Sandwich Tour Part 2: The Mozzarella Lady & Graham Avenue Meat & Deli

Date May 4, 2009

After eliciting some fiery backlash in the comments section of Part 1 of the Williamsburg Sandwich Tour, it’s on to Part 2 and hopefully some love similar to the kind I received from the two family establishments in this post.  We’ll get a taste of wisdom and fresh handmade smoked mozzarella from 91-year-old Georgi, aka [...]

Williamsburg, Brooklyn Sandwich Tour Part 1: Bedford Cheese Shop & Marlow & Sons

Date April 29, 2009

Most New Yorkers claim to be ready for adventure but when someone mentions Brooklyn, the typical response is “what a schlep!”  Enough is enough, it’s time to hop on the L train and discover our neighbor to the east, Williamsburg, Brooklyn. A hood where family establishments stand along side the nouveau.  There’s no better way [...]
