Our Editors’ Favorite Food Day Trips

Living in New York means there are never-ending options for eating out. Sometimes they can take you to neighborhoods you wouldn’t otherwise frequent, but that’s just part of the fun. This week our editors share the spots they never mind going out of their way for.

And The Winner of the Travel Cover Contest Is…

A couple of weeks ago, we asked you to help us choose our next cover for our upcoming travel issue of Edible Manhattan. Between shots like idyllic olive harvests in Tuscany, playful PacMan dumplings from RedFarm, and plump Romanian sour cherries, let’s be real — each of them could have graced the front of our print edition! Nonetheless, there can only be one cover.

U.K. Dispatch–In This Beer Loving Culture, We Can Hold Our Own

LONDON–For years we’d thought of this city’s lovely old-fashioned taverns and tap rooms as the holy grail of good beer, thanks to the Campaign for Real Ale launched back in 1971, when most of us Americans were still guzzling Bud in pop-top cans. The group, now called CAMRA, was founded by four drinkers concerned about the growing number of mass produced-pints and the homogenization of both beer and the pubs where Brits drank them.

The Best Viennese Breakfast (Here and in Austria)

Even as the November/December issue of Edible Manhattan starts to hit the streets, we still can’t stop thinking about our travel issue, especially the article contributor St. John Frizell filed on Austria. He followed Manhattan chef Kurt Gutenbrunner on a trip to his homeland near Vienna, where the pair ate, drank and made their way to farms and fields in the Austrian countryside. If you happen to be inspired by the story to make the trip to Vienna, we recommend the beautiful boutique hotel filled with contemporary art where our writer laid his weary head (and full belly) each night.
