Fat Goose: Chef Jennifer Cole

Saturday, November 12, 2011

Sometimes sous chefs at fancy, expensive restaurants decide to become executive chefs at smaller, more casual restaurants. It’s a choice for life-style and freedom. When it happens, we (the customers) win! We get that same talented chef cooking for us at a fraction of the cost; plus no six-month wait for reservations. Finding these situations […]

Brooklyn Fare 2

Monday, January 25, 2010

Last time, we went to Brooklyn Fare (and loved it), we gave you pictures and descriptions, all through the eyes of a customer. This time, I asked if I could come early and watch them prep, maybe even chat with Chef Cesar Ramirez.
Enjoy these photos and video clips from
Brooklyn Fare 200 […]

Dee’s 107-23 Metropolitan Avenue, Forest Hills, NY 11375 opened their original location in 1993. It’s near my parent’s house so we’ve passed it countless times, yet never tried it until recently, after they moved a few blocks and re-opened bigger, with an expanded menu. It jumps back and forth between Italian, American, […]

Brooklyn Fare

Monday, December 14, 2009

I loved everything about Brooklyn Fare (the pop-up restaurant attached to a grocery store), starting with the sign on their window, “Our Kitchen is Bigger than Yours…” It’s just a wonderful feeling to sit in the chef’s kitchen and eat as Cesar Ramirez (formerly of Bouley) prepares the food in front of you, being the […]

Cafe Orlin, Spot Dessert Bar, Zucco – Le French Diner

Wednesday, December 9, 2009

I did a lot of eating out yesterday, starting at
Cafe Orlin 41 St. Mark’s Place, New York, NY 10003 for lunch, only to eat some “real” food before checking out Pichet Ong’s new
Spot Dessert Bar 13 St. Mark’s Place, New York, NY 10003. I picked up some […]

The New French

Sunday, October 25, 2009

We arrived a few minutes before our friends, Elvira and Chris, so I started browsing the menu of
The New French 522 Hudson Street, New York, NY 10014. It was my suggestion to eat there so I started getting nervous as I scanned a list of dishes that was all over the […]

Midtown Lunch Meet-Up at Bombay Eats

Tuesday, September 15, 2009

I don’t work in midtown but I read Midtown Lunch. Before you make fun of me, I met someone else at this meet-up who also does not work in midtown. Plus, reading paid off. I would never have otherwise known about Indian Pizza at
Bombay Eats 314 West 52nd Street, New York, […]

We arrived in Los Gatos early on purpose, so that we could have gelato at
Dolce Spazio 221 North Santa Cruz Avenue, Los Gatos , CA 95030, then walk around town. Their gelato does not taste like gelato at all which was a bit disappointing for us but soon forgotten when we […]

Big Sur, Carmel, and Monterey

Saturday, September 12, 2009

Marc and Lisa’s wedding was the excuse we needed to make a trip out to California. We decided long ago not to review the food at weddings, but we can say that the scenery surrounding this wedding was unbelievable, and I want to come back to this area again for sure! First, we arrived in […]

The Bazaar by Jose Andres

Wednesday, September 9, 2009

If you’re dining in Los Angeles, you need to read My Last Bite. Jo knows all the best restaurants in the area. That’s how I knew about
The Bazaar at Jose Andres 465 South La Cienega Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90048, which was the highlight of the Southern California portion of our […]
