… some Food & Fashion photos that I loved but didn’t use, including the one of Aziz and me eating ramen, which might be my favorite of all the photos we took.

A huge thank you to the following people who helped me pull this whole project off:

Cherie Burnett at Roberta’s

Mario Carbone at Torrisi

Hillary Dixler and Sue Chan at Momofuku

Johnny Christ at The Bowery Hotel

All the chefs who cooked us the most delicious meals

Noah Kalina for taking incredible photos

And last, but not least Matthew Shawver who did all the dirty work getting us into these restaurants and setting up the shoots.  And also for being a cool person to hang out with.

Oh… and of course Aziz, who agreed to spend a lot of hours eating with me and who I could not have done this without.

Until next time…

 Welcome to Food & Fashion, a project where I, along with my good friend and fellow food lover Aziz Ansari, hit up five of our favorite restaurants in NYC and dressed for the occasion.  Last, but certainly not least is about our trip to The Bowery Hotel for a relaxing cocktail to wash down all the god damn food we’ve been eating.  Read below for a full recap of our delicious meal and a breakdown of our looks.  Photos by Noah Kalina.  Gold Rush photo by me.
 THE BOWERY HOTEL 
335 Bowery New York, New York 10003
AAThe Bowery Hotel lobby is a great place to have a relaxing drink. Its quiet, no music, no hub bub, just a nice place to enjoy a good drink and have a conversation with good company. I can’t remember where I first had a gold rush, but its one of my absolute favorite cocktails and is kind of my go to at the Bowery.

Our recipe for the perfect Gold Rush: 3/4 oz 2:1 honey syrup, 3/4 oz lemon juice, 1 1/2 oz Maker’s Mark bourbon, shake it up, pour it over the biggest ice cubes you can find.
 Anna wanted me to rock a pocket square for this outfit, but unfortunately I forgot to bring one from LA. “But Aziz, it looks like you have a perfectly crisp, nice white pocket square situation going on?” Yes, I know. In a clutch move that was ridiculed at first by both Anna and photographer Noah, I folded up a piece of Bowery Hotel notepad paper to make an impromptu pocket square. Not recommended for use on the reg, but if you’re in an emergency pocket square scenario, you know what to do. No one noticed anything, hell, you didn’t until I said something, so don’t make fun of me. By the way, speaking of pocket squares, someone once gave me an article titled “5 Ways to Fold a Pocket Square,” useful for pocket square folding and if you leave it on your coffee table, its also useful in letting anyone that sees it know you are a total toolbag. My suit is from Mr. Ned’s, which is an amazing tailor that makes custom suits at a very reasonable price. I highly recommend checking it out. It’s very fun to pick your fabric, your linings, your buttons, and really make something unique that’s only yours.  AMI love The Bowery Hotel so much.  It might be my favorite indoor location in New York City.  I love how dark it is, I love how it’s decorated, I love the bar and the outside terrace.  When I’m at The Bowery Hotel I feel like I’ve been transported to a different place and time and since I’ve always felt I was born in the wrong era, there is something about the hotel that makes me feel like I’ve made it to a place where I belong.  I wish I could sit at that bar all day wearing amazing clothes, smoking a from a long cigarette holder and drinking a Gold Rush.  Granted, if that were my life there it would also probably mean that I was some 26-year-old drunk divorcee who’s avoiding her children, but whatever. With a dress is by DVF and shoes by DKNY, this is the fanciest outfit I own, but the dress is so comfortable and the whole outfit makes me feel like I walked out of London in the swinging sixties.  I decided to save The Bowery Hotel for last since it’s always best to end the night over a good drink with a good friend.  Ok fine, one more Gold Rush and then I SWEAR I’m going to sleep.

 Welcome to Food & Fashion, a project where I, along with my good friend and fellow food lover Aziz Ansari, hit up five of our favorite restaurants in NYC and dressed for the occasion. Today’s post is about our trip to Momofuku Noodle Bar.  Appropriately, we both devoured a ton of ramen in clothes we purchased on respective trips to Japan.  Read below for a full recap of our delicious meal and a breakdown of our looks.  Photos by Noah Kalina. 
MOMOFUKU NOODLE BAR
 171 1st. Ave. New York, New York 10003 AAAt this point, we all know and love the Momofuku restaurants, but it’s still great to go back and see what new tricks they have up their sleeves. I currently dig the Noodle Bar lunch menu mainly because of these super amazing beef brisket buns. I’d never had these shiitake buns but they were dope too.


beef brisket buns
 By the way- just because I like whiskey cocktails so much - you must go to Ssam Bar and have the Penicillin there. They really kill it. One of those and a mackerel sandwich? That’s a fine meal. Also, I hear amazing things about the new duck dinner. In honor of Momofuku’s delicious ramen, Anna asked me to wear something from Japan. I’ve been incredibly lucky to have went to Tokyo over the last two Christmas holidays. Its my favorite city to be in along with NYC. I love the food, the cocktails, and particularly the clothes. Why? Because not only are the suits and clothes just super sharp, but Japanese clothes are actually made with small framed men such as myself in mind. None of this, “Well sir… maybe you could try an XL in boys?” talk in Japan. On both trips, I spent an insane amount of time shopping at Isetan for Men, which is a very famous, super amazing department store in Tokyo (there is also a killer food court in the basement floor too). Trying on suits at Isetan is the most fun shopping experience ever. One, the suits are really great and even lil’ Aziz can wear it off the rack, and two, its hilarious having super nice Japanese people help you find the perfect suit even though they don’t speak any English at all. I fell in love with one lady that helped me in 2010. I don’t know her name, never understood a word she said, and I don’t know how the relationship would ever work long distance with her being in Tokyo, but I’d like to think we’ll end up together one day.  This suit I’m wearing is from Isetan’s line, Creator’s Cut. At Isetan they always give you the option of getting your name monogrammed inside the jacket. I got A. Ansari in mine, but I kind of wished I put in something else like J. Statham just to make people wonder if I stole my suit from Jason Statham and then got it tailored to fit me. Next time!


momofuku ramen - pork belly, pork shoulder, poached egg
 AMMomofuku is known for being a hard place for vegetarians to eat, but when we got there the chef had prepared a shiitake bun with no meat for me!  Major brownie points for that move.  The ginger scallion noodles reminded me of my trip to Japan three summers ago and I have to agree with Aziz, it is pretty much the coolest city ever.  The food was great, but the shopping was OUT OF CONTROL!!  I went crazy.  Everything fit me.  Nothing was weird shaped or boxy.  It was a dream come true.  I spent most of my money in the Harajuku district buying Little Bo Peep CosPlay outifts.  Wait, no I didn’t, but I did buy that amazing dress from the photo at a store called Yellow 96.  That dress might be the best purchase I ever made.  I wear it all the time and I always get compliments on it.  The people of Japan are so incredibly warm and I felt really cool when the sales girls gave me little gifts every time I visited the store.  Yeah, I went multiple times in 10 days, but that is of no concern to you.

And we’re back!  Welcome to Food & Fashion, a project where I, along with my good friend and fellow food lover Aziz Ansari, hit up five of our favorite restaurants in NYC and dressed for the occasion. Today’s post is about our trip to Torrisi in Soho.  Torrisi has this amazing old-school New York City feel and what better way to embody it than with a 3 piece suit and a prohibition era throwback dress.  Read below for a full recap of our delicious meal and a breakdown of our looks.  Photos by Noah Kalina.  Food photos by me.
TORRISI 250 Mulberry St. New York, New York 10012 AATorrisi, how I love you. One of my favorite restaurants in NYC hands down. I’ve had dinner here several times, and this was possibly my favorite menu. Of the appetizers, the staple made to order mozzarella was just unreal and as amazing as ever. All other mozzarella should be embarrassed. My favorite dish, was the main course aka the beef short rib with creamy polenta. GOD DAMN THIS THING IS GOOD. Each piece of beef just made me sink into my seat, my body unable to withstand all the deliciousness. But just when the delicious levels seemed to be maxed out - THE FUCKING CREAMED CORN POLENTA GETS IN THE MIX. ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? CREAMED CORN POLENTA!!! Let me say this right here, if you don’t like creamed corn, just fucking get out of my face if you see me in person, we’re never going to get along. The same goes for polenta. Put these two things together, along with that short rib, and wow. I can’t even write about this anymore, cause I’m just going to be miserable that I’m not eating that food right now. Ok, I’m sorry. I’m going to calm down. Let me take a few deep breaths. Ok. I’m good now.

beef short rib with creamed corn polenta
 By the way- I was having lunch at Torrisi when they were experimenting with the meatball parm sandwich they are going to serve at Parm (the new sister restaurant opening next door) and I was lucky enough to snag one. Let’s just say. I. fucking. lost. it. SO GOOD. When that place opens, you best do yourself a favor and go eat one. They are also serving them at Yankee stadium right now if you can’t wait for Parm to open later this month. Trust me, this is THE must eat sandwich of 2011. Also, if you are into phrases like “THE must eat sandwich of 2011,” we can be best friends. AMUmm, I don’t really know how to follow this description of Torrisi.  All I can do is verify that I did indeed see Aziz rendered incapacitated by a bite of short rib and creamed corn polenta.  At first I thought something was wrong, his eyes closed and his chin fell to his chest.  I was like, aww man, I think Aziz just died, but no, he actually just needed to fully check out in order to process the deliciousness of his food.  In a few seconds he came back to life and we were able to finish our dinner like adults.  Only not really because there is very little about either of us that is adult-like. We had a broccoli dish that was out-of-control good and as mentioned before the mozzarella speaks for itself.  The goat ricotta gnocchi was my favorite dish if I had to choose one, but seriously there was not a misstep in this meal.


broccoli with crispy onions
 Oh, I’m excited to say I also happened to be there the day Aziz sampled the meatball parm sandwich and it’s true, he. fucking. lost. it.  I have a confession to make, remember in the Roberta’s post when I said I hadn’t eaten meat in 9 months?  I kind of lied. I did have a bite of the meatball parm sandwich.  The only comment I have is that when Parm opens I will probably be a full meat eater again.

  Welcome  to Food & Fashion, a project where I, along with my good friend and  fellow food lover Aziz Ansari, hit up five of our favorite restaurants  in NYC and dressed for the occasion. Today’s post is about our trip to  Luke’s Lobster in the East Village.  For this lunch, Aziz and I broke out our  best boating gear and went to town on some serious seafood.  Read below  for a full recap of our delicious meal and a breakdown of our looks.  Photos by Noah Kalina.  Except for the food shot, which Aziz took randomly when he had a lobster roll one day.

LUKE’S LOBSTER
93 E. 7th St. New York, New York 10009

AALobster  roll debates are fierce. I personally am not a fan of the ton of mayo,  lobster salad style lobster roll. That’s why Luke’s is right up my  alley. The roll is done Maine style, with a minimal amount of mayo and a  dash of secret spices. Add a delicious toasted, buttery bun and you’ve  got my favorite lobster roll in NYC. One of these lobster rolls with a  bag of salt and pepper chips is an amazing summer lunch. Side note -  after downing these lobster rolls we stumbled into the soft opening for  the Big Gay Ice Cream Shop which is down the street. I had an amazing  ice cream called the Salty Pimp. The next day I was walking down the  street and saw a woman who I was 90% sure served me the ice cream, but I  was too scared to risk mistakenly yelling “Hey you work at the BIG GAY  ICE CREAM SHOP RIGHT?”

lobster roll with lemon butter and spices
 AMYou  can probably get to me eat anything if it has butter on it, not that  anyone has to “get me” to eat a Luke’s lobster roll. These things are  fucking delicious and I would gladly eat them for all meals.  I had only  eaten mayo based lobster rolls until very recently when Aziz shed some  light onto my dark lobster roll world by giving me a Luke’s gift  certificate.  I did a lot of work for Aziz this summer. I could make fun  of him for giving me a gift certificate as a thank you, but I won’t.   Instead, I will only stress that Luke’s makes the most delicious  lobster roll you will ever eat. Oh  what, you thought I’d be full after the lobster roll?  YOU THOUGHT  WRONG!  I downed a cup of olive oil ice cream with sea salt at the Big  Gay Ice Cream like a champ. Seriously, go there. It just opened and it’s  right down the street from Luke’s.

 This  is my go-to sailor’s outfit, which I obviously wear all the time  because I captain A LOT of yachts.  On this day I learned that it is not  a good idea to wear high-wasted shorts and a tight shirt when you are  planning to stuff your face with lobster rolls and ice cream. AA is wearing:Jacket - Band of OutsidersPolo - Band of OutsidersPants - Band of OutsidersShoes - Sperry Top SidersGlasses - Persols AM is wearing:Shirt - BDGShorts - CooperativeShoes - Aldo

This is my go-to sailor’s outfit, which I obviously wear all the time because I captain A LOT of yachts.  On this day I learned that it is not a good idea to wear high-wasted shorts and a tight shirt when you are planning to stuff your face with lobster rolls and ice cream.

Hello!  Welcome to Food & Fashion, a project where I, along with my good friend and fellow food lover Aziz Ansari, hit up five of our favorite restaurants in NYC and dressed for the occasion. Today’s post is about our trip to Roberta’s in Brooklyn.  For this trip, I told Aziz we should just dress in our current favorite outfits that seem like they would blend in with the Brooklyn chic of Roberta’s atmosphere. Read below for a full recap of our delicious meal and a breakdown of our looks.  Photos by Noah Kalina.  Food photos by me. ROBERTA’S261 Moore St. Brooklyn, NY 11206 AAI suggested going to Roberta’s after reading the recent glowing review in the Times. I’d been before but didn’t eat quite this much food. Needless to say, this was ridic. Anna and I combined weigh about the size of one fully grown man, so I must say I was impressed we were able to throw down with this massive 12 course juggernaut of a meal. The highlights for me were the grilled octopus with watermelon and black garlic and the cuttlefish with nectarine, chili, and basil. Also, delicious were the Cannery Row cocktails we had. Ginger beer and whiskey concoctions rarely do me wrong. (Also quite tasty is the Quiet Storm at Employee’s Only.)

The only thing we didn’t have in our tasting was the pizza - but when we went back the next day - BOOM! DELICIOUS PIZZA ALL UP IN MY FACE. Both pizzas we had were fantastic.  One was the Speckenwolf, the other was the Bee Sting.  Special shoutout to the honey that was drizzled on the Bee Sting. I miss you honey. AMThis meal was no joke, we ate for three and a half straight hours.  I think it’s important to mention that before this meal I had not eaten any meat (besides fish) since Aziz carelessly suggested I read Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer 9 months ago.  Cool, so what better way to reintroduce meat than than a Wagyu strip steak that tasted like butter?  My favorite dish was the trofie with clams, tomatoes and bottarga, but I also loved the octopus.  As a rule I love octopus, just feel like I need to get that out there in case, you know, someone is dying to prepare me a delicious meal.

Roberta’s feels like the ultimate destination for Brooklyn style.  This place is filled with the kind of people who probably wake up looking sharp as hell.  We kept it low key with our clothes, Aziz’s pants are from Uniqlo and my entire outfit amounts to a combined cost of $60 thanks to Sir Dov Charney at American Apparel.  But DON’T WORRY what I saved on my clothes I blew many times that on the BCBG spike heels.  I had to. I was defenseless against the shoes. I didn’t have a choice and I will stand by that.
