Welcome to Saturday Night Five, where we shine a light on the best quips, barbs, burns, and nuggets of truth from Eater NY commenters. Here's this week's cream of the crop:
5) An anonymous commenter is intrigued by Chinatown Brasserie's special Eater Burger:
Damn that threw me for a loop. I've oft-dreamed of a duck burger, and now those dreams have been realized. Bless you, bless you all.4) New York Journal on glitzy clubland newcomer, Mystique:
The announcement that Stephen Hanson is taking over the space is already in draft. The only open question is its exact release date.
3) An anonymous commenter is excited about the lunch menu changes at Ssam Bar:
Good lord please bring back the ssam, those were such freewheeling times, and it made Ssam Bar instantly affordable.2) EatBigApple has a solid closer restaurant recommendation:
I'd have to add Millesime to this list.1) Elena, the chef at Counter, makes Amanda Cohen a veggie burger offer she can't refuse:
Dearest Amanda -Congrats to this week's Saturday Night Five! Next round's on us.
I want to personally deliver to you a veggie burger from counter. I will walk it over from our East Village street to yours. I will then open that locked room in your heart with my little veggie burger key, scary as it may be. My aim is not to hurt, but to help you heal.
Your old friend,
Executive chef, Counter restaurant
