Eater brings us a chat with Lee Brian Schrager. Excerpt:
Other than keeping hydrated and somewhat sober, what else do you need to do your job this weekend? Lipitor, Xanax, and my blackberry.
The NYTimes Diner's Journal food blog has Allen Salkin reporting from meat-happy Sobe.
"None may be more gripping than a meaty showdown in the sand set for Thursday night as two New York burger joints fight it out to be crowned best burger in the country against 16 other entrants in the “Burger Bash.” The Shake Shack’s “Shackburger,” the famous brisket-boosted burger, is the returning champion and the only repeat competitor from 2007. Desperate to take the crown is the Burger Joint at Le Parker Meridien, which will be serving up its “Beef Burger with The Works:” Colby and white cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, onions and pickles."
