A look at what we're reading, cooking, and clicking now.
• The New York Times takes stock of how the power outage downtown and parts of midtown Manhattan has affected the city's dining establishments
. In one case, a restaurant without electricity conducts business in candlelight, keeps its food cold over dry ice, and cooks in a wood-burning stove. —Gabriella Gershenson
• Red Hook, Brooklyn, was hit hard by the storm, and Time
reports on how all the food establishments of that area are affected
, including Fort Defiance, owned by SAVEUR contributor St. John Frizzell, and the very popular Brooklyn Fairway, where the watermark is 7 feet high on the outside of the building. As for myself, I'm home-bound with a stomach flu in the wake of the storm, I actually can't eat much of anything, so I'm fascinated with the Huffington Post's reports of the binging that people are turning to for comfort
after the storm. —Betsy AndrewsSee more links »
