Food Notes
Hump Day

Oh Denmark, you had us at Sidse Babett Knudsen. And now Claus Meyer, one of Noma's co-founders, has a Brooklyn pop-up bakery, a stateside version of Meyer's Bageri at 667 Driggs [Metropolitan/Fillmore] 347.696.8400. And Meyer will open a restaurant at Grand Central's forthcoming Nordic food hall.

For more spice, head to just-opened Lucky Bee, 252 Broome [Ludlow/Orchard] 917.262.0329, where Thai street food is on the menu, with dishes like 'Smashed Cucumber, Green Mango, Dill Pickles, Coconut Milk, Fried Shallot, Roast Thai Chili, Sweet Rice Vinegar'. If you're in a DIY mood, check out David Thompson's book Thai Street Food.

Habaneros and ricotta have unexpected parts to play in the story of doughnuts at the The Doughnut Project, 10 Morton [Bleecker/Bedford] 212.691.5000. And the bacon maple bar (pictured at top), is predictably OMG.

Clifton Fadiman famously said cheese is "milk's leap toward immortality." The garbanzo bean is given its best shot in the hands of Dizengoff, Philly's house of hummus, which is opening an outpost at Chelsea Market later this month.

Still in Chelsea Market, but on the luxe side of things: Chelsea Wine Vault is pre-selling the next vintage of Guigal's "LaLas". Robert Parker has called Rhône winemaker Marcel Guigal "this planet's greatest winemaker" and his triumvirate of "La"s—La Mouline, La Landonne and La Turque—are his crowning achievements.

For less exalted refreshment, it's NYC Beer Week starting February 19, with plenty of excuses to hoist a pint, if excuses were needed.

You can order delicious jams, marmalades, chutneys and pickles from Montreal's Preservation Society. You can also dive in on Sunday, February 28, 2pm, when the Preservation Society's Camilla Wynne teaches a class on the Dark Art of Marmalade at Brooklyn Kitchen. $65.

Saru Jayaraman's Forked: A New Standard for American Dining is an important, sobering look at the way the restaurant industry generally treats its workers.
