THISTLE HILL: Menu's posted on the door, and ladies and gents, food looks amazing. I pass it nearly every day and have to concentrate on not wetting myself when I think about the ricotta gnocci. Thinking about it right now, actually, but I'm wearing my good jeans. Anyway, just in case you're curious what happens when you mix one yuppie neighborhood with one old punk dude, I have the answer: the Fat Mike Burger. House-ground, grass-fed beef, potato roll and salt & pepper fries. Snippet of the menu in the photo up top.
FORNINO: Grub Street says that the new Fornino locay on Fifth Ave is getting a little risky: Chef Ayoub is forgoing traditional brick oven pizza for grilled pies. The news is rocking the pizza world (which, incidentally, is like, me and a couple of other dudes who squat outside Di Fara, no biggie). The best part? Let out your pants, friends: they'll be in delivery-ready perfect circles and nothing will be more than $20. Yes, please. Full menu here.
I'm pretty excited to erase all of the calorie-burning work I've done over the last three months in one fell swoop. So, who's with me?
