The Speakeasy Bars of New York

131 CHRYSTIE STREET
 
NEW YORK
 
Speakeasies are, at least in theory, supposed to be a reward for those who put in the effort to find them. Fig19 131 CHRYSTIE holds that tradition, as you could easily be confused into visiting the crazy dance club which causes such a racket next door. Fig19 at 131 Chrystie stands as the antithesis, offering creative takes on classic cocktails in the back room of an art gallery called SFA Projects. The mood is mellow and ambient, a nice retreat from the Bowery chaos.

Anthony Bourdain Favorite Pasta is CACIO PEPE Roman Recipe ROME ITALY

 

CACIO PEPE
“Anthony Bourddain ‘s Favorite Pasta”
RIP TONY




RECIPE
INGREDIENTS :
1 pound Imported Italian Spaghetti
2 tablespoon freshly, coarsely grated Black Pepper
4 tablespoons Butter
2 1/4 cups grated Pecorino Romano Cheese
PREPARATION
Cook the spaghetti according to the directions for that brand, usually about 8 or 9 minutes. Start the sauce when the spaghetti is not quite cooked, about 3 minutes before you would normally take it out of the water. In a already heated saute pan big enough to eventually hold your pasta, add the boiling pasta water, the butter and the pepper. Pull the pasta out of the water and let it drain. Add the drained pasta to the pan and toss through the water mixture until the pasta absorbs almost all of the water. Remove from the heat, and add the grated cheese to the pasta. Very quickly, stir the cheese into the pasta so that it becomes creamy. If it starts to clump or becomes too dry, add a little more of the pasta water as you are  stirring.  Place the pasta into the Parmesan cup and garnish with more grated cheese and freshly grated pepper, to taste.

An Innocent Batali is Exonerated

 
Celebrity Chef MARIO BATALI
 
 
 
Celebrity Chef Mario Batali has been Exonerated of all Sexual Harassment Charges. Three investigations into sexual assault allegations against the celebrity chef Mario Batali have been closed because detectives could not find enough evidence to make an arrest, a New York Police Department official said Tuesday.
Three women had come forward to report that Mr. Batali sexually assaulted them years earlier at two Manhattan restaurants where he was an owner or an investor. In all three cases, the victims said they had been drinking and could not fully remember what had happened.
Charges could not be brought in two of the cases because they were beyond the New York State statute of limitations, which was lifted in 2006 but not made retroactive. Those investigations were closed sometime last summer, according to the official, who spoke on the condition of remaining anonymous as the official is not authorized to discuss the cases.
Prosecutors could not bring charges in the 3rd case because cold-case detectives in the Special Victims Division were unable to find enough evidence to prove that a crime had occurred. The case was closed in August 2018 , the official said.
 
The third woman claimed that she was raped 8 or 9 years ago after visiting the Spotted Pig Restaurant in Greenwich Village where Batali was an investor. The woman said that she had been drinking, and the next thing she recalled was waking up in the restaurant’s third-floor V.I.P. space, the infamous room that some of the employees dubbed The Rape Room.
“She couldn’t put the pieces together,” A New York City Police official said, “She couldn’t put the pieces together,” of her allegations. The police official also said, “Something happened to that victim in that room, but we don’t know if it’s criminal or not.”
Although the statute of limitations prevented Mr. Batali from being charged in the two earlier cases, prosecutors could have tried to use them in the third case as evidence of a pattern of sexual misconduct.
Mr. Batali is not completely off the hook; the cases could be reopened if more evidence emerges, the police official said. The New York City Police Department said Tuesday that it declines comment on details of any particular investigation.
 
 
Now, as this country (America) is supposed t be a just one, let’s hope that the media spends as much time reporting the Exoneration of all Allegations against Mr. Batali. He has not been found guilty or even been charged of any criminal activity, yet his reputation and career have been Ruined, unjustly so. Isn’t a person supposed to be Innocent until proven Guilty in The United States of America? Mario Batali has already been humiliated and persecuted in front of the entire World and especially in America, though he has committed No Crime., his reputation has been tarnished, and it is unlikely that though he has not been convicted of any crime at all, or even been charged, he has suffered greatly in the Court of Public Opinion. Is this just? We think not.
 
After these Sexual Harassment Allegations against Mario Batali, Mr. Batali was immediately fired by ABC from the show The CHEW where he was one of the hosts, Batali was humiliated in front of the World, and forced to remove himself from being present in any of his restaurants of which Batali, his talents and personality was the primary reason for the huge sucess of the Batali Bastianich Restaurant Empire who also own Eataly in New York, as well as restaurant around the country. Mario Batali has not been convicted of any crimes or even charged with any, yet he has beem Prosecuted in front of the general public of The United States of America, and the World. Batali has been exonerated by the New York City Police Department and the New York City Prosecutor, yet he has been ruined. Is this fare?
 
 
Question? Will Mario get a 2nd Chance?

Hey Guys, “I’m Back!” Somehow I lost my password for my Dashboard that I run sever websites from, including Daniel-Bellino-Zwicke.com (this Site),  Big-Lebowski-Cookbook.com , Greenwich-Village-Italian.com , Vinyl-n-Vines.com ,  and NY-Foodie.com.

None of the Sites were down. They were all up and running, it’s just that I couldn’t get to the dashboard of each to make Post, so consequently there have’t been any posts on any of these sites for 3 months. I started a couple of New Sites in order to make posts, as I wasn’t sure if I would ever be able to get back on the sites, so I have another Author Website for myself at Daniel-Bellino-Zwicke . 

I also started a new site for Positano , and The Amalfi Coast . Please stay tuned, I will start posting again on all these sites.

Thanks,

Daniel

Happy to see Corner Bistro’s Burger can still make it to # 1 Best of New York list these days. I’ve been eating Cheeseburgers there since 1984. Yes 26 Years of Bistro Burgers. Back then, the Burger at the Corner Bistro was for Year-After-Year thee perennial favorite, # 1, Top, Best Burger in New York, rated by the Top and most Powerful food Authorities of the day, New York Magazine, The NY Times, Cue Magazine, The Post, The Village Voice, GQ, Bob Lape on 7’s Eyewitness News, The Daily News, so on and so forth. Nine out of ten people, newspapers, and news agency’s, The Bistro Burger was always “Tops,” # 1. It no longer is. And it was tops for some 30 years. Quite a run. Sadly the quality of the Burger has gone down a bit, and there are numerous chemistry better, tastier Burgers in town. Shake Shack get my Vote for the Top, New York’s best Burger, with Bills Bar and Burger and Peter Luger not far behind. But the Shake Shack Burger has all the proper elements that come together and make for perfect chemistry of, dear I say, “The Perfect Burger.” Well if not the perfect Burger, New York’s Best, or at least amongst the Best, everyone has their opinion. Some not as qualified as others. As I’ve been eating the East Coast’s Best Burgers since childhood, and being a former Chef Culinary Professional, I have greater qualifications than most.

The Shake Shack Burgers elements that make it so good, are: Top Quality Beef, Just the right size and thickness, not too thin nor too thick, which unfortunately many think makes a burger is better, the thicker it is. Not so. A 6 oz., 3/4″ Burger is Best and it has to be cooked on a Flat-Top Grill cooking in its own fat to qualify amongst the best. Cooking on a grated grill, just won’t do. You’ll often get terribly overcooked hard spots, losing all important beef fat for the burger to cook in. You’ll need a good hamburger bun, toasted preferred, not too fancy, and a major No-No is the use of an English Muffin. Though i Love them for breakfast, English Muffins are a terrible choice, pairing to a Burger. the Burger has to be properly cooked
And one of thee most important rules to a great Burger, it can’t cost more than $6.50, and about $4.50 is even better. The Shake Shake burger meets all these requirements, even exceeding them.
   

Back to the Bistro Burger. For nostalgias sake and Price to value ratio, combined with the great old New York Bar ambiance, The Bistro Burger always makes it on my Top 10 List. As the Post states, to be able to get a great burger for just $6.50 with Beers at $2.75 in one of New York’s few remaining Bohemian Bars, and in Greenwich Village? A combination that just can’t be beat.

Remembering ANTHONY BORDAIN

.

BourdainTONY

TONY

Friday June 8, 2018 is quite a sad day. We mourn the loss of the great and irriplaceable Anthony Bourdain, a man loved and venerated by many. I hero to some as with I. We loved watching Tony travel the World, devouring it, and enjoying every minute of it, as only Tony could do. Anthony has his own special charm and sardonic humor and wit that was all his own, uniquely Bourdain, ad this is why those of us wo loved and enjoyed Anthony will miss him, and for another bright light snuffed out, we mourn his loss, but remember him fondly. Farewell Tony, you will be profoudly missed. Good Bless and Rest in Peace.
