Stuffing Latkes, Denim and 10 Critical Quince Dinners
The weekend brine made all the difference.
Introducing Stuffing Latkes
Whether or not you celebrate Hanukkah—or Thanksgiving—you can get behind a stuffing latke from Wise Sons to celebrate the holiday overlap. Yes, that means stuffing, patted down and fried in latke form. If something can be fried in latke form, may as well give it a go.
A Self Edge Black Friday Sale
Tough call: post-Thanksgiving beer, or post-Thanksgiving new jeans. Or not: everything’s 13% (yes, 13%) off at Self Edge, and they’ll hand you a beer while you shop. Like any good one-day sale, it goes for three days.
Meet Pathos. It’s Got Greek Food.
November 30, 1776: Greek pilgrims founded America, and made everybody a big feast of ouzo and gyros with braised lamb shoulder to celebrate. So now it’s tradition to eat lamb gyros every year. Or maybe that history is a little off. But still, this place exists—and, yeah, gyros.
Leisurely Pinot Tasting at A.P. Vin
Southern Pacific Brewing’s new neighbors had a hunch—a hunch you might be in slightly more need of wine than usual during these holiday weekends. So they’ve gone ahead and opened extra hours for you to come by and taste their limited-edition pinots. Basically, they’re the Miss Cleo of wineries.
For a restaurant of Quince’s stature, a 10th-birthday feast makes total sense. But really, 10 feasts sounds better. You may need to do some schedule-clearing for 10 days’ worth of white-truffle dinners, Danny Meyer dinners, Alice Waters and April Bloomfield dinners... The leftovers here will put Thanksgiving to shame.
