Beer & Vinyl
Nashville craft brewery Tennessee Beer Works has teamed up with musical artist Jack White’s Third Man Records to offer record albums and beer for curbside pickup or delivery. Customers can order record albums such as Drive By Truckers’ “Live at Third Man,” The White Stripes “De Stijl,” or Muddy Waters’ “Electric Mud” with a six-pack or crowler of craft beer, such as the Hippies & Cowboys pictured here — an India Pale ale with tropical and citrus flavors “crushable on the ranch or at a music festival,” according to its tasting notes.
Price: Starting at $21.99
Stuffed Hungarian peppers
Café Cortina, a “garden-to-table” restaurant in the Detroit suburb of Farmington Hills, Mich., has opened its patio and is now serving these peppers from the garden, reflecting the straightforward food that the restaurant’s guests are craving.
“We picked the peppers at the perfect time,” chef Luis Ernesto Antopia said. They’re stuffed with fresh mozzarella, brushed with olive oil flavored with sage, thyme and Himalayan pink salt and then grilled.
The dining room is closed at Kato, chef Jon Yao’s Los Angeles restaurant that normally serves high-end menus inspired by his Taiwanese heritage. But the restaurant has adapted, offering takeout items that highlight the restaurant’s seafood. That includes this box of chirashi, or vinegared rice topped with sushi-style seafood — in this case abalone, spot prawns, sea urchin, salmon roe and assorted raw fish. It’s enough for at least two people.
Confit chicken wings
Although at the epicenter of the novel coronavirus pandemic, a restaurant named Public Display of Affection has opened in Brooklyn, N.Y. It’s run by brother-and-sister team Robert and Emi Guimond. He worked at Jean Georges and Roberta’s, she worked at Craft, and they both worked at Speedy Romeo. PDA’s wood-burning oven churns out pizzas and a wide variety of roasted vegetables, and is used to finish these wings, which are confit with a five-spice blend plus chipotle and ancho chiles and served with a side of Alabama white barbecue sauce and chile jam.
It’s all currently only available for takeout and delivery, but a 20-seat socially distanced patio awaits once the city’s next phase of reopening is implemented.
Price: $13 for six wings.
Oak at Fourteenth, Steven Redzikowski’s fine-dining restaurant in Boulder, Colo., is doing a month-long Asian-inspired pop-up featuring items such as smoked brisket buns, pork & cumin dumplings, General Tso’s pork shoulder, and this dish of Japanese eggplant cooked with basil, Oxford Garden pea shoots and cumin Szechuan oil.
