Breaking News: Chef Michael Psilakis Brings MP Taverna to Irvington, Wine & Food Weekend Update (FREE Beer Bash Tix!), Antonio Galloni at Tarry Wine, and Olive Oil Cake at Red Barn Bakery

So, guess where we spent our morning? Hauling butt down to the River to meet rocket-hot Chef Michael Psilakis at 9:30 (in the a.m.!) at the new site for MP Taverna: 1 Bridge St, Irvington. You’ve heard of this guy. He’s almost singlehandedly credited for stretching New York’s concepts of Greek food beyond the modest Mom and Pop shops of Astoria. In 2008, Psilakis snagged one of Food & Wine’s Best New Chefs and Bon Appétit’s Chef of the Year awards; and, in the same year, his chic Greek restaurant, Anthos, was nominated for a James Beard Award for Best New Restaurant.


On the EDP Radar (Or, What’s News Right Now). Plus, Westchester Magazine's Wine & Food Weekend Update, and Hump Thursday at The Cookery

Winemakers’ Dinner Update. How Does Lavender Honey Duck Breast Sound? What About Milk Jam Ice Cream?


HV Restaurant Week, Great Upcoming Wine Dinners, and Crabtree Kittle House’s “Retro Menu”

I’ve never been a blind booster and pom-poms don’t do it for me; at high school pep rallies, I was always the Gitanes-smoking conscientious objector dressed all in black. (I’m actually not proud of that.) So when it comes to Restaurant Week, whether Hudson Valley or New York, I always feel like a traitor when I suggest that, as great as it is, there are some downsides.
