I’m on the mailing list of a lot of NYC restaurants so I can keep up with what’s going on there, even though I may not visit for some time. (i.e. too many places, so little time!) I want to share my favorite spots that have been sending out positive messages and offering up a package of deals. Take advantage of this now, because once the city opens up again, they will go back to being the places you might not get into! With food delivery NYC you can look forward to eating in style and comfort. Here’s a couple of picks I love:
The Beatrice Inn
The Beatrice Inn is known for its exemplary meat dishes. They are pricey, but so worth it. Now you can get the same expert dishes for less. Sign up to get their emails to hear about the daily specials, which come with a personal message from Chef Angie Mar, along with an amazing deal for a lovingly-made dish. Here’s an example from last week (Roast of Pork with Apples, Bacon & Cream photo at the top of this post)
A Warming Roast to Close Out Our Week… This week, I found myself spending the mornings at the Beatrice, locked away in my office, buried in cookbooks I’d once loved and then forgotten, and those that I had yet to open.
One thing was resoundingly clear: I just wanted comfort. I know the internet is rife with recipes, some of mine are even on it. But there is nothing like holding a book in your own two hands, flipping through its pages, smelling the paper, and reliving the meals once cooked through the stains on its pages.
The book “Pork & Sons” has long been a favorite of mine. To flip through its pages is to be transported to rural France—an escape for the mind that I very much needed this week.
In homage to that beautiful book, tonight’s Family Meal will be a Roast of Pork with Apples, Bacon & Cream. Roasted low and slow with herbs, all afternoon, then made rich, tangy and sweet all at once by adding creme fraiche, apples and garlic—I’d wager that this is the comfort food that we all need currently. In true “Pork & Sons” style, it will be coming with a bit of buttered brioche, because a dish like this calls for something to mop up the sauces with. It’s perfect for two and $48.
Their Sheppard’s Pie (photo at the top of this post) comes with Bitter Green & Romaine Salad for $45 and is perfect for two. Steak lovers: Chef Angie Mar entices with the offer of a “60-Day Dry Aged Rib Eye, bone in (as it should be), grilled and finished with a rich, and unctuous herbed butter. And, in the classic steakhouse vein that I am missing so ardently right now, it will be coming with a hearts of romaine salad, with a chive and blue cheese dressing and bacon lardons. It’s perfect for two at $87.” Their most beloved dish, Buttermilk Fried Chicken, is sometimes available, double dipped and dressed in spiced honey, for $16. The Beatrice Inn

Info from their email announcement on April 7: Alan kicked things off on Monday adding to the story throughout the day, going live for an “ask me anything” session, and capping the night with a video from that one time the broadway cast of CATS came to the club and threw one hell of a Jellicle Ball! TONIGHT! Richard Cortez goes live at 11p.m. for some chats and tunes with his fellow Jazzers of the Club Cumming Jazz Collective.
