Food Envy: Fish Cheeks' Crab Curry
Welcome to Food Envy, where we’ll highlight different dishes from Time Out Market New York that we think you’re going to love—partly because we do. This week, the crab curry at Fish Cheeks steals our hearts (and stomachs). RECOMMENDED: Guide to Time Out Market New York Fish Cheeks—the Bond Street Thai restaurant with primary color chairs and lamps that look like woven fish scales—is by far one of New York’s better seafood restaurants. Joining the Time Out Market’s New York location opening, they’ve pared down their menu, but whittled it down to a handful of excellent dishes like its version of dressed oysters and fried chicken wings with chili, lime and mint. But Fish Cheeks’ crab curry is what I keep coming back to. I deeply believe it is the biggest sleeper hit of the market, and I do not say that lightly. As a plated dish, it is honestly not that aesthetically pleasing, but it is a must-try. Served in a shallow and wide-rimmed bowl, unctuous and expertly-cooked crab gets placed in a well-spiced bath of coconut milk curry, the color of a deep tan. The result is a spicy-yet-silky dish that is close to perfect. It's so rich that I’d like to dip into it at the spa or lather it over myself like sunscreen.
Food Envy: FELICE Pasta Bar’s Spaghetti Al Pomodoro E Basilico
Welcome to Food Envy, where we’ll highlight different dishes from Time Out Market New York that we think you’re going to love—partly because we do. This week, the popular spaghetti al pomodoro e basilico at FELICE Pasta Bar steals our hearts (and stomachs). RECOMMENDED: Guide to Time Out Market New York Often it’s the most simple dishes that are the most difficult to execute well. But when you’re ordering a burger or even an omelette at a restaurant, you want it expertly executed. From red sauce joints in Little Italy and Arthur Avenue in the Bronx to lauded Roman restaurants, there’s perhaps no other dish that all these Italian restaurants are judged by more than a plate of spaghetti in marinara sauce. After all, it’s a crowd pleaser anytime of the year whether for lunch or dinner. Enter FELICE Pasta Bar’s spaghetti al pomodoro e basilico. This dish alone shows why this is one of the best Italian restaurants in New York. Perfectly al dente strands of noodles are covered in not-overly-sweet tomato sauce topped with fragrant basil leaves. We could eat comfort food like this every day. It’s hefty enough during the colder months to feel like we’re wrapped in a warm blanket but still light enough during warmer ones. The pasta dishes across FELICE’s sister restaurants, from locations in the Upper East Side to Fidi, are popular for the authentic interpretations for numerous Italian classics. Just give us at bowl of the spaghetti al pomodoro e basilico at Time Out Market New Y
Food Envy: Bessou's chicken karaage
Welcome to Food Envy, where we’ll highlight different dishes from Time Out Market New York that we think you’re going to love—partly because we do. This week, the popular chicken karaage at Bessou steals our hearts (and stomachs). RECOMMENDED: Guide to Time Out Market New York Folks like to say that the fried chicken here in New York can't hold a candle to food coming out of the south. We're not going to try and get into that debate. But what we may be able to agree on is that the invention of fried chicken is one of America's best contributions to culinary history with a storied legacy of crispy goodness. But at Time Out Market New York you'll find one of the best fried chicken dishes in NYC hailing from Japan. And no, it isn't served with collard greens or gravy (not that we don't love those sides, too). Japanese breakfast connoisseurs, Bessou offer one stunning fried chicken at their booth. It's a chicken karaage, the Japanese technique of frying meat, usually chicken, in wheat flour or a starch mix. It's dish that can easily be found in convenience marts like 7/11 throughout Japan. Bessou's version feels accessible yet decadent and is by far, in our opinion, one of the market's best. At their Bessou Time Out Market location, you'll find the dish offered with bright colored pickled daikon, cucumbers and edamame, drizzled with creamy mayo-y goodness.
Food Envy: Mr. Taka Ramen’s tonkotsu ramen
Welcome to Food Envy, where we’ll highlight different dishes from Time Out Market New York that we think you’re going to love—partly because we do. This week, the popular Japanese noodles at Mr. Taka Ramen steals our hearts (and stomachs). RECOMMENDED: Guide to Time Out Market New York We love pizzas and bagels year-round, but the moment we feel autumn in the air, there’s one dish that always comes to mind: ramen. While this city offers countless options when it comes to hearty bowls of Japanese noodles, among the best ramen in NYC is Mr. Taka Ramen. Don’t believe us? You know the ramen is legit when the chef, Takatoshi Nagara, garnered a Michelin star at the lauded Bigiya Ramen restaurant in Tokyo. When Mr. Taka Ramen first opened in 2015, there were no shortage of rave reviews and the lines snaked out the front door. Nagara and his friend Takayukki Watanabe found diners would wait even in the dead of winter for a bowl of the al dente noodles in a deep, savory broth that’s been bubbling for hours. It quickly became one of the best restaurants in the Lower East Side. Period. These days, ramen fanatics can find all different styles of the Japanese favorite. At Niche, there’s a dry-style ramen and even one of the best vegetarian restaurants in the city serves meat-free renditions. But when it comes to bowl of broth that warms us up on the coldest of days, it’s the tonkotsu version at Mr. Taka that makes us hungry. Our lips are coated with a shimmering layer of fat from t

Take a stroll: Brooklyn Bridge Park
Some city parks—Central and Prospect, most obviously—were built to replicate rustic fields and preserve serene woodland. Brooklyn Bridge Park, however, was not—and that’s precisely why it has become so popular in the five years since it debuted. The project has transformed a chunk of the Brooklyn waterfront into an 85-acre expanse; several sections house unique attractions such as Jane’s Carousel, a restored 1920s merry-go-round, and riverside esplanades with gorgeous Manhattan views. Its latest addition, Pier 2, designed specifically for "active recreation"—sporting leagues, picnics and roller skating—further cements the space as the city’s premier urban playground.
Get creative: Art in General
