[Pink Pig Time Machine: February 21, 2017] This week I celebrated twenty years of residency in New York--which means it's closer to thirty years ago I first visited the city. After considering many options, I celebrated quietly, remembering those I... Continue reading

[Pink Pig Time Machine by Wilfrid: February 6, 2017] The years go by faster and faster, and looking through my diary from ten years ago I find things that seemed to have happened only yesterday. Ten years ago I saw... Continue reading

[Pigging by Wilfrid: January 26, 2017] When the headline came to mind, I was thinking of the comparison I recently made between the legendary veggie burger from Superiority Burger, and the popular (meat) sliders served at Mark Burger. But now... Continue reading

[Pink pig Time Machine by Wilfrid: January 26, 2017] Easy to pick the highlight of mid-January 2007. A return bout with Ali at his humble but great Kabab Café on Steinway Street in Astoria. Occasionally Ali would--doubtless still will--put on... Continue reading

[Pink Pig Time Machine by Wilfrid: January 16, 2017] A sluggish start to the New Year in 2007, with some seasonal illness, and apparently some attempts to make Norwegian fish pudding. Now there's a recipe no longer at my finger-tips.... Continue reading

[Pigging by Wilfrid: January 16, 2017] About a month ago--because that's how far behind I am with ye olde blogging--my daughter and I set out to compare some new and old hot dog offerings. And we soon found out, not... Continue reading

And a Happy New Year to you all, of course. I know, I know, I have things to write up and publish...Coming soon. Dinner with old friends at Hearth in December: the chicken for two. A chicken dish well worth... Continue reading

[Pink Pig Time Machine: January 2, 2017] Christmas Eve 2006 fell on a Sunday, so it was home cooking for three days before climbing back aboard the restaurant wagon. I was reading Anna Karenina, wandering around Bay Ridge, and working... Continue reading

[Pigging by Wilfrid: December 19, 2016] This place came out of nowhere, as far as I was concerned. Instagram friends started posting (professional, staged) photos of meaty dishes: I looked it up, and it was in the old Garage space.... Continue reading

[Pigging by Wilfrid: December 19, 2016] When the Arctic freeze settles in and iced water is seeping through your snow boots, is as good a day as any to introduce your child to a steaming hot bowl of Vietnamese noodle... Continue reading

[New York Peasant by Wilfrid: December 19, 2016] A long time since I've written about art here, which is just my laziness. I did want to to mention a couple of surprises, especially since there's still time to see for... Continue reading

[Pink Pig Time Machine by Wilfrid: December 19, 2016] I was mixing it up with old French writers and visiting familiar dining haunts, this week ten years ago. Émile Gaboriau and the stunningly over-named Jules-Amédée Barbey d'Aurevilly were contemporaries--although Gaboriau... Continue reading

[Pink Pig Time Machine by Wilfrid: December 12, 2016] My diary let me down this week. Several blank pages, and a sad lack of insight into what went wrong with a meal at March. "Disappointing tasting menu at March" is... Continue reading

[Pink Pig Time Machine: Wilfrid, December 5, 2016] Well, it seems worth recording for posterity. I've done few headstands since. To say that gymnastics has played a small role in my life would be an understatement, but after an all... Continue reading

[Pigging by Wilfrid: November 29, 2016] Austin, Texas is a BBQ city. Even if you weren't forewarned, you know as soon as you step off the plane and catch the aroma of smoked meat from the terminal outlet of Driftwood's... Continue reading

[Pink Pig Time Machine by Wilfrid: November 29, 2016] Time to get cooking, late November 2006. My daughter had just celebrated her sixth birthday, and Thanksgiving fell a few days later. I was cooking for about six or seven people.... Continue reading

[Pigging by Wilfrid: November 21, 2016] So Austin's Emmer & Rye isn't the only non-Chinese restaurant with a dim sum service theme. I remember seeing The Church Key in L.A. show the same paces on Bravo's Best New Restaurant show.... Continue reading

[Pink Pig Time Machine by Wilfrid: November 14, 2016] A forgotten movie? A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints with great early performances by Shia LaBoeuf, Melonie Diaz and Tatum Channing (and a mis-cast Robert Downey Jr.). One of my favorite... Continue reading

[Pigging by Wilfrid: November 14, 2016] Nothing, of course, to do with The Damned ("she can't afford no cannon"--who can, these days?). Nothing, really, to do with Elvis Presley, Ray Charles or Johnny Cash--although you can expect to hear them... Continue reading

[Pigging by Wilfrid: October 31, 2016] Fort Lauderdale, Florida, right on the sea-front, and a strong wind is blowing through the palms. The occasional squally rain shower. Not so idyllic. I'm at the Harbor Marriott Beach Resort, and it would... Continue reading

[Pigging by Wilfrid: October 31, 2016] It wasn't my idea. My daughter had seen or read something, or gotten word of mouth, about this great new grilled cheese place on Allen Street. Now I view grilled cheese as an enjoyable... Continue reading

[Pink Pig Time Machine by Wilfrid: October 31, 2016] A lot of restaurants at the end of October 2006, and an entertaining night out at Bloomingdale's, with the store converted into a party scene for selected guests: performances by Forbidden... Continue reading

[Pigging by Wilfrid: October 24, 2016] I read a reference this morning to M.Wells Steakhouse in Queens, and I had the sudden thought: that's the place Cockscomb reminded me of. But I think it's really that Cockscomb has captured a... Continue reading
