Hungry New Yorkers: Tasting Table to Do the Tasting For You

tstintblg.pngSo! If there is one thing New Yorkers know how to do well it is eating and drinking. Seriously. But what if adventurous eaters don’t want to have to do the sidewalk-pounding research to find the good food? Tasting Table thinks they have a solution. The daily email publication, which launched last month, is the brainchild of the folks who helped back and develop Daily Candy and Thrillist and is edited by Nick Fauchald, formerly of Food & Wine. The goal? To deliver “first-hand, informed advice in a knowledgeable editorial voice.” Says Fauchald:

We won’t cover a new restaurant until we’ve vetted it ourselves and experienced it as our readers will…We are not obsessed with the new; we love the classic. We’ll remind readers about venerable New York restaurants and forgotten favorites that may have slipped off the radar.

Also, for those of you feeling the economic squeeze, never fear! There are also “recipes — tested and simplified for the home cook — from top chefs and bartenders.”
