Since the tail end of 2013, and through great fortune, Digest NY Editor Craig Cavallo (me) has been writing weekly restaurant reviews for Serious Eats. I wanted to start posting a blurb about the featured restaurant on Digest NY with a link to the review. So here goes.
Cora Lampert opened Box Kite on New Year's. For three weeks the tiny storefront existed solely as a coffee shop, serving Madcap and Ritual roasts from 7am to midnight. Lampert was looking to serve food to patrons in for evening espresso and when Doug Gulino heard the news he showed up to cook a few plates and was brought on build a menu. Gulino called on the help of friend Justin Slojkowski, whom he met working at Roberta's. Both chefs cooked at Acme too, and the demand for creatively worked, high quality, local, seasonally-driven food that defines those restaurants now soars at Box Kite. Check out my review this week over at Serious Eats.
