4 Food Delights

Fast food that is good for you may sound like an oxymoron, but New Yorkers can indulge their taste buds in a new type of comfort food. When it comes to the double burger with cheese fries, I struggle to make the right choice, but stepping into 4food and looking at the menu the healthy alternative do not seem bad. De-junking fast food is 4food’s motto. It is fresh, nutritious but most of all delicious. Free range turkey, pancetta bacon, mushroom and onion on a brioche, labeled as the Growburger, caught my attention out of all the sandwiches and one bite into it, I concluded that this is my new lunch spot.

From homestyle to “alto Italiano” (high-class Italian) there is much to choose from in our fair metropolis.  And now with the opening of East 12th Osteria there is an option that is as delicious as eating in the land of La Docle Vita. With smart, sensuous and smallish options – chef Roberto Deiaco has created a menu that is a delight to both the eyes and the palate.

A Most Urban Cowboy

Picnic

By Rory Winston

Unlike Brooklyn with its post-ironic flare for resuscitating artery-clogging comfort foods till they smack of pedigree, Manhattan ‘just don’t take too kindly to Midwestern fare’… unless, of course, it’s been thoroughly reinvented by the likes of Nicholas Nostadt, the Ohioan chef reared in the heart of …well, the French Culinary Institute.
