The epicurean delismiths at Montalbano's Italian Food Specialties curate a mouthwatering collection of fresh cheeses and house-made italian sausages. The deli menu houses more cold cuts than Jack Frost's Christmas album, including the five-meat and cheese Monte Special ($8.50 for hero; $6.50 for roll) or the warm veal parmigiana ($8 for hero; $6 for roll). Homemade sausages, sopprasatta, and capicolla snuggle inside gourmet godfather wraps ($8) and grilled vegetable vegetarianos woo tongue buds with grilled veggies and fresh mozzarella ($7). On the lighter side, veritable gardens toss and turn with chicken cutlets to form antipasto Pauley salads for two ($15), which please dining duos with more facility than a tandem fork.
Over a plate of fresh Maine lobster that they brought back to the city themselves, husband-and-wife duo Ralph Gorham and Susan Povich wondered aloud, “Why doesn’t someone in New York start a fresh-seafood business?” Their destiny as restaurateurs was realized the moment those words were uttered: they opened Red Hook Lobster Pound a mere six months later. Gorham began traveling to Maine every weekend, scoping out catches and making deals with fisherman, choosing only those that partook in environmentally sustainable practices. Meanwhile, Povich experimented with recipes in order to add to an already lengthy repertoire of lobster-based recipes she learned while growing up in the Northeast. Word of mouth helped spark interest in their eatery, and before long, the demand compelled them to expand their storefront to include a picnic-style dining room. They’ve even added a food truck––nicknamed "Big Red"––that brings lobster-based dishes to diners across the city.
According to The New York Times, success has had little effect on Red Hook Lobster Pound’s menu: “It tastes as fresh as can be, which matters when you’re dealing with a trend that’s growing so fast.” Their lobster rolls—served on split-top buns and garnished with just enough homemade mayo—have been lauded by Zagat, Bloomberg News, and Gourmet.com. Other popular dishes include lobster bisque, lobster mac-n-cheese, and a lobster dinner, served with homemade coleslaw, potato salad, and fresh, lake-caught corn.
Choc-Oh-Lot Plus's artistic confectioners sweeten up kitchen repertoires with a two-hour course in cookie decorating. With an instructor's step-by-step guidance, students handcraft seasonally shaped sugar cookies adorned with frosting to transform treats into Halloween pumpkins, Thanksgiving turkeys, and Labor Day W-2 forms. Utilizing a squeezable pastry bag, hands top cookies with royal icing, learning the tricks needed to craft aesthetically pleasing batches of sugary shapes. Take-home recipes encourage patrons to continue practicing at home, so they can eventually fashion treats in themes as diverse as Inspector Gadget's rolodex of mechanics. Students should bring their own containers to take their cookies home in.
