The Breslin: Home of the Famous Lamb Burger

October 22, 2014 4:04 pm

If you’re the foodie type who likes a throwback meal reminiscent of 19th century England, add The Breslin to your list of must-have meals in New York. The creation of chef and owner April Bloomfield, an expert in British gastropub cuisine, the menu here is hearty, earthy, and emphasizes meat. Most diners venture to The Breslin for the renowned lamb burger topped with feta and served with thick cut fries and cumin mayo for dipping. Another favorite is the pig’s foot for two, but it will easily feed more.

Although The Breslin is perpetually busy, especially on weekend nights, the restaurant doesn’t accept reservations. That is, unless you're part of a large party that wants a seat at the chef’s table for a three-course meal featuring a whole roasted suckling pig carved table-side. If you’re just in the mood for the famous lamb burger, the wait passes quickly in the bar, where you can order a cocktail designed for the serious drinker who appreciates the stately and bitter flavors of rye, bourbon, and gin. The ambiance fits the food here: the decor echoes a rustic English pub, and the lighting borders on too dark.

Give Your Stove the Night Off With This Trio of Creative Ceviche Recipes

October 16, 2014 5:05 pm

Ceviche is a staple Peruvian dish that combines raw fish cured in citrus juices and given a signature flavor via spicy chili peppers and other seasonings. It’s become a very popular dish among American gourmet restaurants as well, and many chefs put their own unique spins on the traditional dish. Here are three creative ceviche recipes that you can make at home.

Tofu Lime Ceviche
This vegetarian ceviche uses plump tofu instead of the usual fish, so it’s completely safe for non-meat eaters. The lime juice, jalapeno, and cilantro give it a traditional flavor, while canned coconut milk adds a bit of a creamy finish.

Cauliflower Ceviche
Cauliflower is the star of the show in this flavorful dish, but it absorbs the flavor of the wonderful medley of seasonings around it. Plump Roma tomatoes, roasted poblano peppers, and fresh lime juice all work together in this vegan ceviche.

Ceviche Verde
This dish looks and tastes just as good as the ceviche served in upscale restaurants, but it’s so easy that any amateur home chef can make it. The fish is cooked by an acidic chemical reaction with the lime juice, and an assortment of jalapenos, avocado, and other green ingredients give it a zesty, fresh flavor.
