Today in print we have a nice mix of stories.
First up, Mark Kennedy of the Associated Press has written an insightful profile of Dan Barber of Blue Hill at Stone Bars in Pocantico Hills. Dan won the James Beard Award for best chef in the U.S. earlier this month, and was also recently named one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people. I’ve been covering Dan for a very long time, and Mark’s is one of the best profiles I”ve read. He really captured what gets Dan ticking:
Then we have a roundup of places to get great steak in Rockland. They’re not all steakhouses, necessarily, though those are included too. I contributed to this piece, as did Jeanne Muchnick, Karen Croke, Mary Lynn Mitcham and Ted Hesson. (I know… my job is the pits, right?)
And last, but certainly not least, we have a review of The Cookery, Michael O’Neill and chef David DiBari’s new resturant in Dobbs Ferry. Karen Croke does a great job describing the food and, if I were you, I would follow the advice of the headline: Get Thee to the Cookery. (KC/TJN)
