F4tF: Pork Ragu & Potatoes @ Porchetta

If you have not eaten at Porchetta, stop in and try it.  Call ahead and see if they have the Ragu, it is so worth the trip.  Have I steered any of you wrong yet?

Other happenings in the foodie-verse this week

Ed Levine Eats gives us NYC Food Events for the Weekend (and Beyond), including this year’s Big Apple Barbecue Block Party Saturday and Sunday, June 13 and 14, 12 p.m. to 7 p.m.

It was nice to read in the NY Times about the city adding 1000 mobile food carts to get fresh produce out to everyone in NYC.

Summer means lemonade and such.  If you want to make that big batch of drinks but have nothing cool to put it in, then check out 10 Summer Drink Dispensers (and Drinks to Put In Them) (via The Kitchen)

Did you know that Photographer Annie Leibovitz has collaborated with Lavazza on a calendar and marketing campaign that features scantily clad women lusting for . . . coffee.  Chow let us know that you can find the calender here.

Have an iPhone?  Looking for local, seasonal food?  There’s an app for that! (via The Feed)

Yankee fan?  Hate the Red Sox?  Did you know that David “Big Papi” Ortiz has his own hot sauce called Big Papi En Fuego Hot Sauce.  Too bad he’s only hitting below .210 with 4 home runs.  That doesn’t seem like “En Fuego” to me.

Are you a public servant?  Well the Hard Rock Cafe is offering 71 cent burgers to all public servants (with ID) on June 14th, the 38th anniversary of the opening of the original Hard Rock Cafe. (via A Hamburger Today)

Can’t keep up with all of the new places opening around town?  Not to worry, StrumErika brings us 7 May Restaurant Openings (Table 8, Aldea, Locanda Verde, Marea and More).

Want to get to know one of NYC’s best restaurateurs a little better?  Well RestaurantGirl did a Q&A with none other than Drew Nieporent.

  1. Looks great, as usual. BTW: Just got back from Fairplay Colorado, where I had occasion to stop at the Brown Burro Restaurant. I have to say, they make the best breakfast burritos and Huevos Rancheros that I have had anywhere. Smothered in Green Chili, real southwest classics. I stopped by Beaver Creek and picked you up a T-shirt. I don’t want to give it away but it is from an establishment that sells booze, so check your mail.
