[Pink Pig Time Machine by Wilfrid: April 17, 2017] Turning the dust-encrusted heavy vellum pages of my journal, I realize with a mixture of regret and acceptance that: This is where we came in. Ten years of meals, ten years... Continue reading

[Pigging by Wilfrid: April 10, 2017] Petit Crenn had been on my San Francisco list for the better part of a year--when I've been in town during large-scale conferences, it's been an impossible reservation--and I've heard nothing but consistently good... Continue reading

[Pigging by Wilfrid: April 5, 2017] I've eaten mediocre French bistro food in cities all over the United States. If I want over-salted duck and bread dumped on the table without a smile, I can get that on the Lower... Continue reading

[Pigging by Wilfrid: April 5, 2017] Yardbird Southern Table furnished the best meal of my recent trip, not because it was leagues better in execution than Bouchon, but because the prices were--in comparison--sane. It's tucked away in a subterranean "Restaurant... Continue reading

[Pigging by Wilfrid: April 5, 2017] If you haven't been, let me assure you that the Las Vegas Strip is not as glamorous as you might think. Even if you thought it wasn't very glamorous, it's just a bit less... Continue reading

[Pink Pig Time Machine by Wilfrid: April 3, 2017] A lot of moderate dining out in this city, ten years ago around the end of March. Let's take it from the top. A lunch at Otto featuring the testa--tasty, if... Continue reading

[Pigging by Wilfrid: March 20, 2017] I do understand that not everyone is looking for a replacement for the sadly closed Fritzl's Lunch Box. Not everyone finds themselves on a regular basis between bars or galleries or events, and near... Continue reading

[Pink Pig Time Machine by Wilfrid: March 20, 2017] Cool, snowy in March 2007. All familiar enough. It was a quiet week in the city for me, broken up by the rousing racket of a St Patrick's Day concert at... Continue reading

[Pigging by Wilfrid: March 13, 2017] Ice cold blew the wind up (or down, who cares?) Amsterdam Avenue. We ducked into this corner butcher store (okay, Bloomfield-Friedman restaurant), and found it pleasantly busy on a late Saturday lunchtime. I was... Continue reading

[Pink Pig Time Machine by Wilfrid: March 13, 2017] It was off to Boston in a rental car, that cool March ten years ago, to see a family member perform in Joe Jackson's musical Heaven & Hell at the Boston... Continue reading

[Pigging by Wilfrid: March 6, 2017] A return bout with Le Coq Rico recently, the really very good, professional, friendly, useful restaurant opened early last year by Antoine Westermann--someone to whom the sobriquet "top tocque" might actually be well applied.... Continue reading

[Pigging by Wilfrid: March 6, 2017] Here's an interesting one: Vulto Creamery's Heinennellie. look familiar? Of course, it looks, smells, and to some extent tastes, very like the great Vacherin Mont d'Or (or Hauts Doubs). Let's look at the specs.... Continue reading

[Pink Pig Time Machine by Wilfrid: March 6, 2017] After the rigors of the Food & Wine extravaganza in South Beach, a quiet week back in New York in the residual snow. Some home cooking, some German poetry, The Battle... Continue reading

[Pigging by Wilfrid: March 2, 2017] This return bout with The Cannibal was prompted by daughter's remark that she'd never eaten steak tartare. In fact, that's not quite true. What she actually said was, she'd never eaten camel tartare. Well,... Continue reading

[Pigging by Wilfrid: March 2, 2017] A second visit to this Upper East Side survivor, at the generous invitation of genial co-owner, host and chef Christian Schienle. And coming up to 28 years, this place is now a genuine neighborhood... Continue reading

[Pink Pig Time Machine by Wilfrid: March 2, 2017] Ten years ago, and I'm headed for the South Beach Food & Wine Festival in Miami for the first time. Something which would never have occurred to me a few years... Continue reading

[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
