Every week, I document another dish that impressed and satiated me during my food adventures around New York City
Prices at New York restaurants are getting out of control. I understand there a lot of factors to this (rent hikes, food costs, aggressive PR), but it’s getting to the point where I laugh in shock every time I open a menu.
At Dirty French, it’s so hip and expensive that the prices aren’t even posted on their online menu. This is one of the more recent openings in the Torrisi-Carbone powerhouse and they focus on classic French brasserie food. I haven’t made it to Santina yet and have not been able to save up enough to check out Carbone. But I am a fan of the food at the more affordable Parm, so I thought a lunch excursion to Dirty French was in order.
Come back every Wednesday for another funny, informative video documenting my inept food adventures. NYC Brewery Tour explores the growing craft brewery scene in the city and visits all the unlikely spots that are brewing fresh, delicious beer.
Right on the border of Queens and Brooklyn sits Transmitter Brewing. It’s an unusual location (you have to look for it under the Pulaski Bridge) and they’re brewing some unusual but very special beers. Instead of building up their hop repertoire, the guys at Transmitter are instead focusing on the interesting flavor components of all sorts of different styles of yeast. The beers are amazingly one-of-a-kind.
