Hummus Place has built its menu around its titular dish—so it’s no surprise that the staffers have hunted far and wide for the smallest, most circular chickpeas, which they claim make the best hummus blend. The New York Times agrees, calling the dish "eerily smooth" with sesame and garlic "in a state of equilibrium." Water, tahini, olive oil, and lemon round out the recipe—served with fresh pitas from the bakery.
"When we first opened, we had only hummus on the menu," Hummus Place owner Ori Apple told CBS's Tony Tantillo’s Dining Deal. "Three different kinds of topping: tahini, chickpeas, and fava beans." Today, the kosher menu showcases five blends alongside dishes such as veggie-loaded couscous, falafel, and shakshuka—a stew with tomatoes, peppers, onion, and eggplant, finished off with two over-easy eggs. Dessert selections bring out dulcet notes of dry kadaif buried beneath vanilla-infused ricotta and the faint notes of "Happy Birthday" hummed by a date tahini cake dished up with apple confit.

OnSpeedDating.com pairs up like-minded people during singles events designed around dating deal breakers. The company?s methodology, which has attracted the attention of the New York Times and Dateline, aims to sync up singles with similar interests, daters looking for a particular type of relationship, or even those seeking specific physical attributes in a partner, as featured on CNN and Entertainment Tonight. Men and women of any sexual orientation and age can find a soiree that piques their interests, from speed dating directed toward 40-somethings to "Hot or Not" singles mixers that encourage guests to share their hopes and dreams, specifically the scary one about the finger puppets.
To illuminate what the New York Times describes as a “cozy, wood-paneled den,” the owners of Bronx Ale House have outfitted their exposed-brick walls with growlers filled not with beer, but with glowing light bulbs. It’s a nice touch for an upscale alehouse where craft beers from across America fill 16 taps, 28 bottles, 7 cans, and a cask. To complement those pours, chef Eric Hubbard infuses standard pub fare with an artistry that has caught the attention of the Wall Street Journal, among others. His dishes include jerk chicken bites with buttermilk-ranch dressing and a half-pound burger topped with gorgonzola and an IPA-reduced onion jam. Along with the aforementioned growler lamps, the bar’s interior is comprised of wood reclaimed from a barn near Cooperstown and a warm gas fireplace beside which guests can dry off their glass boots before filling them up with beer.
When the owners bought the James Brown House in 1977, the bar it housed had gone nameless since the end of Prohibition. Furthermore, because the house—built in 1817 for James Brown, believed to be a black man who assisted George Washington during the Revolution—was on the National Register of Historic Buildings, a new sign would mean a lengthy review process. So they decided simply to paint over the neon “BAR” sign to make it read “EAR”. The move actually paid homage to the building’s history—the upstairs once housed the publishers of Ear Magazine. This is just one of the many stories in the colorful history of The Ear Inn, located within one of the last remaining Federal houses in the city. Thanks to the many goings-on in the rooms of the James Brown House, the bar has been the epicenter of spiritual worship, a smugglers’ den, speakeasy, and brothel. Today, it transports guests to another time beneath double-splayed keystone lintels, peg-set wood posts and beams, and a Flemish bond-brick façade. It also hosts live music and serves homestyle meals.
Spending summers on her grandparents' farm in Greece whetted Anna Zoitas's appetite for globetrotting and healthy, handcrafted cuisine. After refining her palate on further travels through Europe, Asia, and the Caribbean, she became a judge for the prestigious International Fancy Food Show. There, she examined more than 2,000 specialty foods and beverages, many of which she now stocks in The Artisanal Kitchen's online pantry.
Carefully crafted in small batches, all of Anna's handpicked products come from all-natural organic ingredients, from extra-virgin olive oils and jams to kosher, gluten-free coffee made from arabica beans grown 4,000–6,000 feet above sea level—roughly the height of the Jolly Green Giant’s top hat. Anna provides quick, healthy recipes on the shop's website, many of which incorporate products—such as arbosana olive oil—that can help boost health and reduce the risk of heart disease.
