The Weekly Roundup: New Openings at Chelsea Market, All About NYC Tacos..and Hot Dogs Too

+FOODS OF NY TOURS NEWS+
  • New York, I love you: The next day, we took a food tour of Nolita (North of Little Italy). If you’re asking yourself, What the heck is a food tour?, well, it is a tour where you eat food the entire time, i.e. THE BEST IDEA IN THE HISTORY OF ALL IDEAS. This was my third tour through Foods of NY and I have loved every one.

  • The 10 Best Taquerias in NYC: Here are the 10 best taquerias in NYC, each of which clearly executes its vision deliciously.
    • A New York City Tacopedia: L.A.'s Got Nuttin' on Us!  Ever since southern Mexican immigrants started pouring into town almost 30 years ago, we've seen a multiplication of taco styles, a gradual broadening of our taco vistas — partly sparked by the immigrants, partly due to a ramping up of Mexican food popularity nationwide.
  • My Life as a Magnolia Bakery Cupcake Bouncer: Take a hilarious look at a day job that most of would never have thought existed.


+INDUSTRY NEWS+
  • How New York City Hot Dogs Conquered the Galaxy: The hot dog is as ubiquitous to New York as pizza, the steakhouse and the Statue of Liberty. While the roots of the hot dog stretch back to central Europe, it was on the boardwalks and streets of New York City that the hot dog became assimilated into American life, shedding its immigrants status and donning a stars and stripes waist coat.
  • Dining with the stars: Big-name backers can draw customers to a restaurant, but they don't guarantee success.
  • Mind of a Chef’s Second Season Is Now Streaming on Netflix: Season three of the Anthony Bourdain–produced PBS show Mind of a Chef premieres September 6, so it's a good time to catch up on its Emmy Award–winning second season with Sean Brock and April Bloomfield. All episodes are now available to stream on Netflix and Amazon Prime.
  • Are Heirloom Tomatoes Always Worth The Price? Now the spheres are in kitchens around the world, as common an ingredient as salt, but the new millennium has seen a rise in lumpy, multicolored tomato varieties—a far cry from the factory-farmed beefsteak standard that took over American kitchens in the second half of the 20th century.


+NEIGHBORHOOD NEWS+


  • Angry Neighbors Fighting Loud SoHo Restaurant's Expansion: It's no fun living next to a super-loud nightlife spot, and residents living in the vicinity of Sullivan Street restaurant Navy say the popular seafood spot is just too damn noisy. Now, they're fighting Navy's planned expansion into a space now occupied by a quiet bakery, describing the move as "a Trojan horse" that'll bring more noise to the neighborhood. Liquor license war, commence!



  • Beautiful People, Improbably Great Food at Dimes: Located on the fringes of Chinatown near the corner of Canal and Essex, Dimes is one of those micro-eateries that have been popping up lately, renting tiny spaces because larger ones have become unaffordable.
