New York Decides Vegetables Are the New Black

Oh, New York! Relentless in your pursuit of the Big New Thing! First to toss over last week's Big New Thing! You namers of fashions and bestowers of trend status, you (or at least New York magazine writers Robin Raisfield and Rob Patronite) have declared offal over and discovered the glories of vegetables:

Summer and its particular Greenmarket bounty may be long gone, but unrestrained vegetable eating has never been more eagerly pursued. Sunchokes are everywhere, black kale is all the rage, and even plain old broccoli―never mind boutique brassicas like spigarello and Romanesco―is hot.

After that quote, the article babbles on breathlessly for a long while, but really, New York, San Francisco has nothing more to add. Instead, we'd like to bestow a supportive smile of affirmation on your new passion. And when you vegetable-crazy Brooklyn foodistas decide you'd like to know how to cook that heirloom beet perfectly ... pay us a visit.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
