Good morning! How's your day going? Could be a little better, right? The Internet has provided just the thing to put a little more spring in your step. Eater uncovered the apparent restaurant trailer for a new Staten Island restaurant called Troy, where modern conveniences like refrigeration are eschewed for medieval preparations of "raw meat, live fish, and screamin' bird." But the details about the restaurant don't matter, since none of us will go there anyway. It's the restaurant's trailer that concerns us today, a video that has set the standard for all restaurant trailers going forward:

Posted By on Wed, May 1, 2013 at 12:55 PM

Here's a fun "music video" featuring a bunch of jumpsuit-clad warehouse workers (?) making sweet sounds as they assemble a shiny red espresso machine. The video was made by espresso machine manufacturer Sanremo UK in conjunction with The Media Workshop, a digital production company, and screened originally at the London Coffee Festival + UK Barista Championship before making the rounds on the Internet. Take a look.

Watch the Trailer For Tasting Menu, A New Foodie Rom-Com From Spain

Posted By on Mon, Apr 29, 2013 at 10:30 AM

tasting_menu_trailer.jpg

Well, the new Spanish flick Tasting Menu has come up with a brilliant plot for a food-themed rom-com. It's the last night at El Bulli-like restaurant Chakula, the "best restaurant in the world," and an attractive couple have a table booked at the memorable meal. The only problem? They made their reservation a year before, and have since broken up. Sounds like a delicious premise to us.

It's Friday! This week was better than last week! What better way to celebrate/pass the time to beer o'clock than by watching a video of the most adorable tiger cub on earth eating her first solid food? (That is a trick question. There is no better way.)

Watch State Bird Provisions' Stuart Brioza Fry a Whole Quail

Posted By on Thu, Apr 25, 2013 at 4:50 PM

state_bird_provisions_quail_ba.jpg

Chef of the moment Stuart Brioza stopped in to the Bon Appetit offices recently and showed them the secret to the restaurant's signature deep-fried quail (CA's state bird, in case you've been living under a rock for the past year and missed the whole quail trend). Obviously, this is one of those dishes that's probably easier to just go order at the restaurant than make at home -- yes, even though you probably can't get a rez until after Memorial Day -- but it's fun to see how the dish is done and makes you appreciate Brioza's ingenuity as a chef even more (hint: it involves dredging in pumpkin seeds).

See What $5 Buys You In Bananas, Coffee, Beer, And Other Foods Around the World

$5 gets you a lot of beers in China!
  • $5 gets you a lot of beers in China!

A few weeks ago we told you about Buzzfeed's video illustrating what 2,000 calories looks like in everything from bagels to bacon. They've followed it with a video showing what five American dollars will buy you in various foods around the world. Key takeaways: Coffee is at a premium in Italy, you can get enough bananas to feed a barrel of monkeys in Ethiopia (only like six in Australia, though), and the U.S. has the second-cheapest ground beef next to the U.K. Anyway, give it a watch after the jump, it's pretty mesmerizing stuff.

Watch What Happens When You Instagram Someone Else's Food

instagramming_strangers_food_3.jpg

Yeah yeah, we know that Instagramming food is just the worst thing and making fun of it has already been done to death (remember last year's "Eat It, Don't Tweet It" video?). But what happens when you try to Instagram someone else's food? A pair of jokesters at Hungry decided to find out, and the results are mildly funny. At least enough to make you crack a smile during a Thursday afternoon Internet break.

Best Sandwiches in the Movies: Don't Forget The Tiny Bread in Spinal Tap

Posted By on Mon, Apr 8, 2013 at 1:40 PM

spinal_tap_sandwiches.jpg

We very much enjoyed Bon Appetit's all-sandwich-all-the-time coverage last week for Sandwich Week, but had a few quibbles with their list of the 13 best sandwiches on film. Mainly because they missed one of our all-time sandwich scenes: The tiny bread (and regular sized lunch meat) that causes such a problem for Christopher Guest in This Is Spinal Tap.

What 2,000 Calories Look Like in Foods You Eat Every Day

Posted By on Tue, Apr 2, 2013 at 4:20 PM

2k_calories_bacon_buzzfeed.jpg
Just in case you were wondering what 2,000 calories of everyday foods looks like stacked up, the evil geniuses at Buzzfeed have come up with a video showing it. What's interesting: the number of bagels vs. doughnuts that add up to your daily allowance (spoiler: almost the exact same number), the number of bacon strips you'd have to eat if you were eating nothing but bacon (see above: more than you think), and the equivalencies they come up with, like one six-pack of Budweiser is equal to about 12 slices of bread.

Not surprising: the number of calories in Cinnabons and fettucine alfredo from the Olive Garden.

Watch the whole video after the jump.

  • 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.'"
