Under Review: Sietsema at Northeast Taste Chinese Food; DiGregorio at Golden Steamer & Baohaus
This week in the Voice, Our Man Sietsema meets with the Organ Meat Society at Flushing's Northeast Taste Chinese Food for the Dongbei take on kidneys, pig heart, and sweet and sour lamb liver; while Sarah DiGregorio explores the "most underappreciated of cooking methods" at Golden Steamer, and the art of the gua bao at Baohaus.
Sifton also has time to file on Xi'an Famous Foods' new Chinatown outpost, where the food is "really good," and the new Upper East Side Mexican MXco, which he deems "not quite uninspired. It isn't dazzling."
Jay Cheshes is quite taken with the "procession of animal fat" at The Breslin, which "breaks new gluttonous ground."
