Cartoonist Matt Diffee does NOT recommend

dallas-bbq.jpg

We have recommenations at ontheinside.info, but what about places you should avoid? New Yorker cartoonist Matt Diffee, from Texas, states Dallas BBQ is such a place:

They have crappy meat that I think they cook in the microwave, and then they put sauce on it. I’m sure they don’t do that, but it is not authentic barbeque. It’s not slow cooked with an indirect heat which is essential. Part of it is, I think, that you can’t have a barbeque pit smoker in Manhattan. You’re not allowed by law, so all the good places actually do their smoking out in Queens or somewhere and then bring it in every day. But they do spend the time, the 16 hours or whatever, it takes to slow cook this to the point where it really tastes good. At Dallas, they just cook it as fast as they can and put sauce on it. And I hate particularly the fact that they call it Dallas BBQ, because having grown up outside of Dallas, it’s just sacrilegious. I feel like telling the Texas tourist board about it, and they can come shut them down. The tragic thing is that people from up here who’ve never really had good barbeque, go there and think this is all barbeque is and that’s just the saddest thing because real barbeque is so good.

Hipster Olympics in Williamsburg

This is a funny parody of hipsters in Williamsburg. The beginning takes place in front of Sideshow Gallery which was recommended by one of our favorite artist, Jacques Roch.

Hard at work

Frank was working hard on the new site last week.

Here he is, for example:

En La Escena Screening

I attended the screening of TV Show pilot En La Escena last night. It’s great entertainment and will be on TV in no time.

And I got a photo op with some of the hostesses of the show!

Stay out of the rain

It’s chilly and rainy today. Tuck into a cafe and have yourself a warm drink.
Here are some suggestions from our peeps:

Gretchen Mol says the cafe con leche at Sucelt on West 14th Street:

David Wain might be at Doma in the West Village:

Charlotte Collard likes the cappuccino on the upper east side at Via Quadronno:

On the go with Carlos

Walking around on Saturday afternoon, I stopped by Yuka Bar in the East Village with my friend Ross. Our bartender, Carlos, was an Argentinean fellow who served us a couple good bloody mary’s. I asked him his favorite Argentinean food in the city.

Carlos recommends:
Boca Junior Restaurant
8108 Queens Boulevard
Elmhurst, NY 11373
(718) 429-2077

He says there are a ton of soccer posters (Boca Juniors is a top soccer club), history and a great atmosphere. As far as dishes, Carlos mentioned the Asada and Churrasco.

We later stopped by La Esquina (not the downstairs part but the open-air stand) for a burger and fish taco.

A group of Chinese girls were celebrating a bachelorette’s party.

That area around Broome and Mott is fascinating. You have the tourists of Little Italy, Chinatown and a few other cultures mixing in as well. There’s a Bangladeshi deli right around the corner for example. I don’t mean just the owners, but the people in there are all watching Bangladeshi TV and catching up on the news from back home.

You can literally travel the world within just a few blocks. Even on the same block sometimes. Everybody’s doing their thing, it’s quite harmonious in fact, and only in NY probably.

On a side note, I also hung out with Zero. Zero likes to hang out in a bag.

Meet Larissa

Larissa stopped by to drop off some audio files at the office today. She’s been writing, interviewing and producing for us (great profiles such Amy Sedaris, David Wain and Gretchen Mol). She’s got a few more surprises up her sleeve too (eventhough she’s not wearing sleeves today)!
