How 2-Michelin-Starred Acadia Serves Its Burgers - Food Republic

Shouldn’t he instead be explaining standouts from the 10-course tasting menu, expounding on what a recent Chicago Tribune rave review called “an elegant composition of osetra caviar, avocado puree and barley-ale ice cream”? The chef-owner of Chicago’s Acadia, Ryan McCaskey, seems to enjoy defying logic. In a city of steakhouses and trendy bistros, the quietly intense chef decided to open Acadia, a restaurant devoted to highlighting coastal Maine cuisine — albeit with a classical sophistication that’s more akin to French gastronomy. The 2012 bow made people attention, and the restaurant has continued to thrive, earning a first Michelin star, and then last year, adding a second — making it one of only five in Chicago with at least two stars.

Miyas. DELAFIELD, WI—Ice cream truck driver Robert Shaw, 35, made sure no adults were watching before leading some kids in a chase around the cul-de-sac. Helpful Waitress Asks Recently Seated Couple If They’ve Eaten Food Before. MICHIGAN CITY, IN—Having greeted the table and handed out the restaurant’s menu, City Bistro waitress Amanda Meese helpfully inquired Tuesday if a recently seated couple had ever eaten food before, sources confirmed.

“You folks ever put food in your mouth, chewed it for a few seconds with your teeth, and then swallowed it?” Meese asked, thoughtfully guiding the diners through the process of employing their lips, tongue, and jaws in unison to break down edible material in preparation for entry to the stomach. “Cutting your meal into smaller pieces with a knife and fork is really popular, but be sure you’re not actually eating the knife and fork. Male Gaze Falls On Buffalo Chicken Bites. BINGHAMTON, NY—Patrons at Thirsty’s Tavern and Grill confirmed Monday that the objectifying male gaze has fallen upon a $6.95 plate of buffalo chicken bites, resulting in the menu item being treated as if it serves no purpose beyond providing pleasure to the man who ordered it.

Male Gaze Falls On Buffalo Chicken Bites

By valuing the dish only for its ability to satisfy male appetites, the gaze has reportedly stripped the food of its individuality and reinforced outmoded, centuries-old attitudes toward deep-fried chicken. According to sources, the man could be seen almost drooling as he projected his desires onto the platter before him, looking upon the happy-hour favorite as nothing more than a passive “thing” to be dunked in ranch dressing and eagerly consumed. Man Brings Lunch From Home To Cut Down On Small Joys.

RICHMOND, VA—Speaking with reporters while opening Ziploc baggies of pretzel twists and baby carrots, local man Stan Keppler said Monday that he has started bringing in lunch from home to cut down on his small joys.

Man Brings Lunch From Home To Cut Down On Small Joys

“Making your own lunch each day is a great way to reduce your simple pleasures throughout the week—it’s already made a huge difference for me,” the 38-year-old insurance underwriter said as he unwrapped a plain turkey sandwich from aluminum foil that he had woken up 15 minutes early this morning to prepare. “I used to go out for lunch with coworkers and actually enjoy myself every day, but now I just sit at my desk and eat something I packed from home.

It’s quick, easy, and has cut my weekly sense of gratification by at least half.” Keppler went on to say that he is considering canceling his cable service as well, which would save him 90 hours of genuine relaxation time a month.

We’d wanted to get out on bikes, but the weather was just relentless: day seven now in Scotland of gusting wind, rain and the occasional spray of hail.

Dining at The Three Chimneys

Now we were on the Isle of Skye, getting hit by western island’s wettest month plus a bit of Hurricane Gonzalo’s wrath. Still, the will to bike beat out the will to stay comfortable, so we packed the rentals in the back of the truck and set out for a good spot to spin to between our house in Breakish and our afternoon destination in Colbost, about 50 miles away and as far northwest as you can get on Skye, or in Scotland for that matter. After a few hours we rolled in to small parking lot alongside a bay, soaked to the bone and very cold. Our colleague Chris met us with the car and we pulled down the street into an empty gravel lot to strip naked and put on dry clothes.

I forgot shoes, so I put on boots a few sizes too big; Sung forgot pants, so he was going to be very cold for the rest of the day.

Acclaimed food critic Jonathan Gold has written that "Entire religions have been founded on miracles less profound than the Ensenada fish taco. " If anyone ever heeds his call and founds a religion dedicated to the worship of the fish taco, they would certainly build the high church in Ensenada, a seaside city of 270,000 in the Mexican state of Baja California.

It was there that, at some point in the middle of the 20th century, some forgotten culinary genius first put fried fish, cabbage, crema (a sort of thinner sour cream) and pico de gallo on a corn tortilla. And many still consider it the best place in the world for fish tacos. But if Ensenada is the Mecca of this new faith, San Diego is its Medina. Legend has it that the first American to taste real fish tacos was a San Diego State student named Ralph Rubio. I polled friends from the area and scoured the Internet to put together an ambitious fish taco itinerary for the weekend.
