Well, newdies, on this site we have posted a couple of food debates already. We pitted cajun gumbo against creole gumbo. You read about how NYC bagels compare to Montreal. Now we bring you the main event. New York City is back versus Chicago as we explore which city has the best pizza.

How many New York gays does it take to figure out a pepper grind(e)r? You’d be surprised.
Try a whole room-full, camped out on couches, sleeping on sofas in the basement of a Hells Kitchen condo. Read: things I didn’t expect to see when Joshua Shoopman invited me over to watch the filming of his forthcoming comedy cooking show, Cooking with Comedians.

But what you don’t know is that that drink is not just blue, it’s not turquoise. It’s not lapis. It’s actually cerulean. And you’re also blithely unaware of the fact that in 2002, Morton’s did a Cerulean Margarita. And then I think it was The Palm… Continue reading A Devilishly Good Cerulean Cocktail
