Every month in New York, there are a bewildering variety of recent dishes to consume, drinks to imbibe, and meals-themed activities to attend. Often, the most challenging part is simply identifying what’s well worth your restricted time. So Grub Street kicks off each month with a curated choice of dishes, beverages, and occasions that must sincerely be on your schedule. Make your plans now.
1. Spend a summer season Friday consuming Austrian desserts and sipping on Austrian coffee drinks.
Since taking on the kitchen at Augustine, the Bâtard chef Markus Glocker has delivered Austrian accents to the restaurant’s menu. The brand new offers you a completely new purpose to go to the eating place: a day menu that’s supposed to bring a slice of Viennese café lifestyle to New York. Called Kaffee & Kuchen, it consists of Viennese coffee drinks like the Fiaker ($eleven) — a double espresso with demerara sugar, rum, and whipped cream — and the Franziska ($7) — black coffee with vanilla whipped cream and cocoa nib. But most significantly, there are seven cakes on the menu for your afternoon cake time. There’s a cardinal Schnittke with meringue, French biscuit, and coffee mousse; an esterházy torte ($12) with hazelnut and almond dacquoise and vanilla buttercream; and, of the path, apple strudel ($12) with rum raisins and crème fraîche ice cream.
2. Set aside a Sunday for brunch at Oxalis.
New York critic Adam Platt praised the pop-up grew to become eating place Oxalis for its innovative cooking, and the often evolving carte blanche menu is, at $60, one of the better dinner investments you could make. Soon you’ll find a fair better bargain during the weekends. On June 16, the Prospect Heights eating place will serve its first Sunday brunch, offering a $30 menu of four dishes like fingerling potato hash with harissa and ramps and a spring vegetable, basil, and Idiazabal cheese salad. Those feeling much less hungry can move a la carte and order a French omelet, simple blueberry clafoutis, and other dishes.
3. Drink local beer on a commute out to the Rockaways.
It’s officially seashore season. (Which also manner that, yes, it’s miles pina colada season.) For New Yorkers who don’t run away to the Hamptons or further afield, it’s always of a question, how can I decrease my effort while getting to the beach? Rockaway Brewing Co. Now has a new solution for summer 2019: a shuttle between its breweries in centrally located Long Island City and Rockaway Beach. Called the “Brew Cruiser” (tickets are $20), it’ll run six loops a day starting the following day. It’s not the primary commute provider out to the beach, but it is the first to offer beer at the bus that’s brewed with the aid of the service’s operator. And after you’re at the beach, you may forestall by way of one in all your preferred spots.
4. Go to a competition thathat’stirely dedicated to IPAs.
HopHop’sads take word: On June 22, Other Half, a.K.A K.Aew YorYork’seshest brewery will host its 2nd competition devoted to all things IPA. Called Green City, the event brings extra than 70 brewers to Industry City, consisting of Mikkeller, Alchemist Beer, Firestone Walker, Half Acre, local favorites like Grimm, and plenty of others. To top off the pint, thethey’veditionally added on NY N.Y.estling Connection to amuse, Ends Meat will be roasting pigs, and ExcExcell’sngston Eatery will serve jerk fowl. General admission (tickets are $a hundred) gets you four hours of as many beers are you like, in addition to gaining access to Industry CitCity’sod court and the wrestling courts. The all-in tickets have already been bought out, so if you want your beer bitter, you might want to behave fast.
