Take a page from Nicole Miller‘s book and nosh on the best seasonal grub out East before Labor Day arrives and the farmstand-less realities of fall settle in. Just save us a bite, please!
Fave discovery out East: Back Page Patio Café
Obsession of the season: Mushrooms from the farmer’s market—just sautéed in olive oil. They need nothing else!
Greatest kitchen hit: Smoked pork shoulder on my new grill.
Seasonal regrets: I haven’t enjoyed enough clam chowder this summer. I haven’t been to The Clam Bar yet! I also regret not getting out to Montauk more often.
Current NYC chef crush: Decoy’s Ed Schoenfeld. He rules!
Foodie goals for next season: I had a divine watermelon gazpacho on a boat this summer. The owners were kind enough to give me the recipe!
Surprisingly sublime meal: The Parrish Art Museum’s food was amazing! You never expect great food at an event.
Dish worth copying: Keith Barish’s smoked whole chicken on the grill. Can’t wait to try it!
