Steve Cuozzo's TOTG Review; Sunday Brunch at Alameda

WEEK IN REVIEWS — Although he had a pleasant enough first meal at Tavern on the Green back in April, Steve Cuozzo's follow up visits were not so rosy. The Post critic gives the revamped Tavern one and a half stars. Cuozzo writes: "Meat was overcooked: dry beef brisket and rubbery, plancha-cooked pork chop faded after the first few nibbles. 'Marinated' anchovies lay on the tongue like cardboard. Most every plate came with one element too cold for the others." [NYP]

GREENPOINTAlameda is now open for Sunday brunch from 11 a.m. till 3 p.m. The menu includes things like corned beef hash, Basque-stye baked eggs, smoked fish with caviar, and an egg scramble with fried oysters and bacon. [EaterWire]

FRIENDLIER SKIESJetBlue just launched a new version of business/first class called the "Mint Experience," that includes, among other things, food from Saxon + Parole, pastries from Mah-Ze-Dahr Bakery, and sweets from Blue Marble Ice Cream. Check out a video about the Blue Marble ice cream here. [EaterWire]

EATER INTERVIEWSIn a new interview with Eater National, Dan Barber talks about his book The Third Plate, and what chefs can do to help the nose-to-tail movement: "Chefs can orchestrate a menu that's diversified and comes from what the land truly wants produced, and what the farmer can make a very good economy off of, a true diversity. That, I think, is the challenge for the future." [Eater National]
