Breadless Tees


Yet another food related Threadless t-shirt.

This week it’s a reprint of one popular tee. It’s cannibalism at its finest as a piece of bread jellies himself up.

Get yours here. $15 for guys, $17 for gals, $17 for kids, and $20 for the onesie. A hoody is also available for $40.

But act fast…sizes fly out the door.


Customized Chef’s Table

blue on blue

You can attempt to prepare a huge, fresh meal for a bunch of friends at home, or you can go to a farmer’s market with a chef and have him help pick the ingredients and then prepare your meal for you. I’d pick the latter. According to Thrillist

Conceived by former Four Seasons chef Gabe Gabreski, Chefs Table’s a way for culinary idiots to throw together a masterful kitchen experience, unmarred by their lifelong Boyardee phase. The experience begins in the bowels of a farmer’s market (your choice, though Gabreski prefers Santa Monica’s), where you and the chef’ll comb the stalls to pick your ingredients (arugula, elk, fava beans, gummy worms). If you’ve an eye for the exotic, Gabreski knows which vendors stash forbidden delicacies — like duck eggs, which he can make into pasta so rich it’ll pay the insurance premium hikes you face from eating it. Armed with your picks, Gabreski will repair to blue on blue to create a menu, freeing you to go home to consider why the special features on your Manhunter DVD totally suck.

That evening (or up to three days later), you and six of your friends’ll return to the restaurant, where they’ll enjoy the fruits of your sort-of-labor (plus included paired wine), while you bask in the glory of not eating Spaghetti a la General Mills.

For some ideas on what you might want the chef to prepare, check out blue on blue’s standard dinner menu.

DeVito Does Steak


Danny DeVito is a pretty funny guy, especially on It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, but does he know anything about steak? Apparently, so.

Actor Danny DeVito is teaming up with restaurateur David Manero (Gotham City, Shore Restaurant) to debut DeVito South Beach, a posh new Italian steakhouse in Miami Beach, on June 18th. The menu nods to the recent designer steak craze (Craftsteak, Cut, Kobe Club, etc.) with a “global flight” of Kobe cuts from Japan, Nebraska and Australia, served in a vast bilevel space that includes a first-floor dining room with red Venetian chandeliers, exposed brick and an open kitchen, an upstairs lounge with DJ booth and an alfresco area with several outdoor cabanas.

If you missed one of my previous posts, he’s also is starting his own Lemoncello and appeared on The View pretty drunk. See proof here.
