SF Eats: Sushi + Burrito = Sushirrito!

201102-b-sushirritojpg

A nouveau addition to the foodie scene has San Francisco’s downtown Financial District buzzing. The melding of two San Fran staples has lunchtime crowds bending around street corners for up to an hour in order to get a taste of a new hybrid—the sushi burrito.

Northern California is a nursery of innovation and Sushirrito has answered the call with creations like the Crispy Ebi, a nori-wrapped, one-pound roll with ingredients that dance between Asian and Latin influence—tempura shrimp, melted pepper jack, shredded crab, and plantains. Or the Mamacita Roll, a tuna wrap packed with shiitake mushrooms, Daikon radish, and Tobiko fortified with a Mexican Kabayaki sauce. So far, the diminutive space and long wait haven’t done anything to temper the enthusiasm for the Bay Area’s newest gastronomic revelation.

Just get there early.

The Donald to Reopen Tavern on the Green?

201101-b-donaldjpgNew York Post |  The Donald wants to reopen The Tavern to make boatloads of Green again.

Real-estate mogul Donald Trump last night said he will ask the city to grant him the right to run the now-closed, landmark Tavern on the Green restaurant in Central Park--vowing to restore it to gustatory glory with a $20 million redevelopment investment.

Trump's revelation came after he reached a deal yesterday with the union that represents Tavern's former employees.

He said it would give the union a five-year contract and between 400 to 500 jobs at the city-owned building.

World's First Ski In-Ski Out Distillery

201101-b-highwest-5jpg

The sun crouches behind the snow-capped peaks as I prop my snowboard against a wall and step into the world’s only ski-in/ski-out gastro distillery. After an epic powder day, a bevy of snow shredders trickle in for après ski cocktails in what has to be the most unlikely destination for a whiskey brew shop on earth. Utah. Despite it’s rigid alcohol laws, bartenders were muddling mint leaves for mojitos laced with a Utah-distilled, award-winning whiskey. As Julian Rubinstein notes in Travel + Leisure’s January issue, Park City is a town in transition.

Buenos Aires Is Hot for American-Style Frozen Yogurt

Top It Buenos Aires

As the sultry Buenos Aires summer kicks into high gear, porteños are dipping into a new frozen treat for the first time. Thanks to a pair of Penn grads who imported an American obsession to Argentina, low-calorie frozen yogurt is a hit with sweets-loving, image-obsessed Argentines who spill out the door of the soft-swirl shop in trendy Palermo Soho. The hipsters and fashionistas who sip Quilmes beer on restaurant patios and peruse the chic shops that pepper the treelined streets in this neighborhood have worked the frozen yogurt spot Top It into their daily routines. Owners Ilana Messing and Guillermo Marx see the same faces pop in all week.

At Qingdao's Drunken House, Enjoy a Hangover-Free Stumble

Qingdao Drunken House

In my 32 years on earth, I’ve been tipsy on beer more times than I can, or can’t, remember. I’ve chugged Busch via beer bong and glugged Germany’s Franziskaner Hefe Weiss by the glass boot. I’ve done keg stands of Keystone Light and slowly sipped Goose Island’s complex, barrel-aged Bourbon County Stout. Despite their flavorful differences, these boozy paths all lead me to the same terminus: a bleary-eyed a.m., grasping for aspirin and cursing the bright, relentless sun. Paying the Piper is never a pleasure.

City of Brotherly Suds: A Weekend Tour of Philadelphia's Best Beer

The Yards Philadelphia

I’m convinced that there's a force field surrounding New York, preventing me from breaking free of the five boroughs. How else to explain the months that pass before I leave the city limits?

If one thing will make me leave my Brooklyn apartment, it’s beer. I’m cuckoo for bitter IPAs, chocolaty stouts, sour ales, and other carbonated pleasures of the craft-beer constellation. I’ve traveled from Portland to Portland (Maine and Oregon, I mean) to explore the brewing scenes.

But—Philadelphia? Sadly, I’ve neglected the City of Brotherly Suds, despite its groundswell of excellent breweries, bars, and eateries.

"Let’s go this weekend," my girlfriend, Jenene, suggested. "It's only two and a half hours away by train." Sold.
