Ivan Ramen's Slurp Shop is open, and it's good. Really, really good. The last great ramen rush in New York was all about the pork. It's not until the last year or so that we've been dipping our feet into craziness that is modern ramen. Show More Summary

At this time of year, Austin bakeries and ice cream shops are simply bursting with both peppermint and eggnog flavored sweets.

I certainly love me some porchetta, but even I've got to admit that sometimes all of that richness and intense pork fat can be a little overwhelming.

Fini's Landing may be best known for their beachfront theme and some pretty good fish tacos, but it's their Chubasco burger that's been garnering much attention of late. And with good reason.
Amy Thielen's recently released cookbook, The New Midwestern Table, has more than a few recipes involving cabbage. Most are simple, familiar preparations—steamed, simmered, and slawed. But one rendition caught my eye: A crisp, sautéed version flecked with poppy seeds and scented with ginger sounded light, fresh, and a flavorful contrast to a hearty hotdish or roast.
Whether the holidays make you think of sugar plums and snowmen or overly opinionated family members and a roast burning in the oven, there's one thing that seems to draw folks together like nothing else this time of year: booze. Here's our guide to the best beer options for several possible holiday feasts.

This year, I read a whole bunch of books for Serious Reads. Here are my top ten picks for the bookish food lovers in your life this year.
When the Drunken Munkey [sic] opened up on the Upper East Side, it advertised itself as an upscale Anglo-Indian fusion restaurant. It played up dishes like curried beef stew and Goan pork vindaloo, many made from owner Arun Mirchandani's family recipes. Then came the schtick.
This recipe is based on a lavash cracker recipe and when the dough is handled minimally with almost no flour added in the rolling process it results in a perfectly light, crispy cracker which is still sturdy enough to stand up to a slice of cheese perched atop it.

Does the thought of cooking and entertaining for Christmas make you feel less like Santa, and more like the Grinch? We've compiled a list of restaurants open on Christmas Eve (with notes on which are also open on Christmas Day).
