The Pony Bar, NYC

The Pony Bar in Manhattan’s Hell’s Kitchen is of course best known for their 20 rotating taps of amazing American craft beer. However, the often eclectic selection of brews sometimes overshadows the interesting edible items you can find on the menu there, particularly their bar snacks. Here’s a look…

Chicken-stuffed Buffalo Pierogies…

Deep Fried Horseradish Pickles with “Chris Ryan’s” ranch dressing…

And their OUTSTANDING Beer-Battered Green Bean Tempura with Asian Mustard…

They have a full array of excellent sandwiches as well!

They say “food is art”, which I truly believe, and I love it when great art is in turn used to promote cool new food projects, like the two you see here.

Chef Alex Stupak is using that haunting piece by artist Sylvia Ji to announce the launch of his third Empellon eatery, Al Pastor!

Chefs Roy Choi and Daniel Patterson announced their new fast food concept, loco’l, with the second piece of more urban art you see above. (I am still waiting for confirmation on the artist.)

Hope to see more vibrant visuals as the food and art worlds continue to collide!

Eggslut, Los Angeles

Like eggs?

Then Eggslut is the place for you!


A small breakfast & lunch counter located at the entrance of Grand Central Market in downtown Los Angeles, Eggslut specializes in all things whites and yolks.

I went for breakfast and rejoiced in the runny revelation that is their sausage, egg & cheese sandwich.

It starts rather unassumingly…


But gets grander as you gander…


At Eggslut, they cook my eggs just how I like them…


House made turkey sausage, over medium egg, cheddar cheese and honey mustard aioli on a warm Portuguese bun…


In all its glory…


You may need extra napkins, but only if you don’t lick the eggy overrun off your fingers first!
