M. Wells Steakhouse is expected to open next month in a former car repair shop in Long Island City. Here is a photo via NYT’s Julie Glassberg of a bone-in burger that might be on the menu.
Paris Baguette in Ktown is selling a very special Brie cheesecake. They’ve managed to use sugar and frosting to make the cake resemble a little round of Brie cheese. I actually thought it was covered in a layer of white rind before I cut into it. The creamy Brie filling inside is savory (maybe even a bit salty). I loved it!
Pinch me. Am I dreaming? Nope. I have finally found a place that makes Taiwanese pineapple cake (fènglísū 鳳梨酥) that is as good as Chia Te or SunnyHills — and it’s right here in New York City! IRIS Bakery in Flushing specializes in Taiwanese pastries and breads, and their pineapple cakes are to die for. They currently have two varieties, one is plain pineapple and the other is pineapple with cranberry. They also serve delicious panna cotta and grapefruit gelatin.
