Dishes in disguise: Five masquerading plates in New York City2013-10-28
Some of NYC’s most inventive plates of food are dishes in disguise that aren’t what they seem. With Halloween on the horizon, we take a look at five dishes around town playing dress-up.
This Halloween, drunk New Yorkers aren’t the only ones pulling on a mask. Thrill-seeking diners take note: Boundary-pushing chefs are waving their magic tongs and pulling out all the molecular gastronomy stops to serve sleight-of-hand plates. At modern restaurants like Alder, Atera and Jungsik, you can find crackers made from oysters, edible rocks and a Caprese salad that mimes bibimbap.
