The man behind Hecho en Dumbo’s got a new taqueria. They prepare tacos al pastor on a spit. Slow-cook them
while a pineapple’s juices drip down the meat to tenderize it. Then they ply you with a bar full of
mezcals and mezcal cocktails. Then... you have impure thoughts.
Best Made Co.: they make a hell of an axe. Plus handsome camping stools, perfect raglan T-shirts, hunting
jackets, knives. You know, real urban essentials. And for the first time in Earth’s 3.5 billion years (and
their four), they’re giving it to you for less than normal. Commence the parade.
Jul 25-26, noon-4pm, Best Made Co., 36 White St
(between Broadway and Church), 646-478-7092
The Last Stand of Max Fish
You could consume some solid art here. Pool table: yes. Cheap beer: practically invented at this place.
It’s Max Fish, and it’s moving to Williamsburg. But before that: one last exhibit. Including a neon sign
reading “Satan is happy with your progress.” And indeed he is.
Through Aug 1, 5:30pm-4am, End of Days at Max Fish, 178
Ludlow St (between Stanton and Houston), 212-529-3959
ABC Cocina, Now Brunching
When Jean-Georges goes to the trouble of inventing you coconut pancakes with fresh berries, you probably
ought to go eat them. Which is why you’ll go hit up the new brunch at ABC Cocina. Because... you know,
it’s got those.
Sat-Sun, 11am-3pm, ABC Cocina, 38 E 19th St
(between Park and Broadway), 212-677-2233
Marc Forgione and Spare Ribs
Laotian food has got to be in... what, your top 50 ethnic foods? Easily. And it may climb a few rungs now
that Marc Forgione and his longtime executive chef are tackling it. We’re talking lemongrass-rubbed spare
ribs, duck rice and herb-spiced cognacs. So yeah, maybe get out to Laos.
