In case you missed it, Iron Chef America aired Battle Tilapia last night on Food Network.

ELV missed it, because no one gave him fair warning the episode was about to air. We found out at dinner at Due Forni, where they were nice enough to bump the football game for a few minutes to watch us try to treat tilapia as something trenchantly tasteful.

The episode will be repeated this coming Saturday at 5 pm.

New York Stories

Below is a quick travelogue of our four days there last week, concentrating on — what else? — food and restaurants. Some misguided souls (like The Food Gal®) are under the impression there are things to do in New York City other than eat and drink, and for this they have our sympathies.
