The 2010 Saveur 100 List

So I'm not sure what the process is for deciding what makes the 2010 Saveur 100 List, but I think it's awesome.  After reading through it I can't wait to hit Arthur Avenue (#19), which I have been meaning to visit since I moved to the city but somehow I haven't made it there yet!  I am also dying to try Sichuan Dipping Salt (#5), Crispy Pata (#27), Ssam Jang (#57) - which has been on my grocery list for weeks for my next shopping trip to Koreatown, Temptation Barrel-Aged Ale (#63), Olive Oil Tortas (#69), and Lingham's Hot Sauce (#93).  And I am now researching cooking classes to take at Astor Center (#68) - perhaps the Cuisine of Southern India or Rose Petals and Saffron: Hands on Cooking with the Flavors of the Persian TableEven more impressive, the list actually made me want to visit Wisconsin (#91) , which up until now was not on my foodie radar at all.

I just wish that more of the restaurants and foods were located nearby on the East Coast, rather than across the country (or around the world) where I can't get to them!


  1. Vicki, we can't wait to see you here at Astor Center. Both classes are going to be delicious and of course I hope you take both, but to help you decide, Cuisine of India is taught by a noted food scholar who focuses on cuisines of the spice route (he is also a professional chef), so has more of a historical context, whereas Persian Table is taught by a cookbook author who grew eating and cooking Persian Food, and brings more of the autobiographical to the table.

  2. Thanks Jennifer! I will definitely take your recommendations into consideration. I just have to look at my calendar and see which date or dates work for me!
