Burlap sack lobster

Burlap Sack Lobster at ACME

Acme, a chic NoHo favorite, is located inside a space formerly occupied by a restaurant of the same name. Executive Chef Mads Refslund has helmed the kitchen since 2012, creating locally sourced, New American cuisine with a subtle Nordic touch. Ever inspired by unexpected ingredients and sensory experiences, he recently shared one of his favorite dishes with us — an herb-infused, whole steamed lobster inspired by the beach.

Food Bank Tour

Food Bank for NYC and the Fight Against Hunger in the Big Apple

I had no idea what to expect when I boarded a shuttle bus on the Upper East Side heading to the Bronx. It was a midsummer day — July 23rd, 2015 — and I was on Food Bank for New York City’s Mission Engagement Tour. I made some assumptions about what that would look like, but I soon learned the takeaways — from visiting three distinct locations that day — were far greater than I could have imagined.
