The Daily Shortlist April 30
You’ve seen celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay on TV’s Hell’s Kitchen and Kitchen Nightmares berating bad contestants till they cried. Tonight, he stops by Border’s to sign copies of his new book Gordon Ramsay’s Fast Food. At one of my favorite places to get duck, The Peking Duck House, the meat is succulent and the skin crunches like a potato chip. Sometimes you just want to grab a pint without paying a cover charge or playing host to a group of people after work, which is why I like Blackstones Pub & Restaurant. It looks like an old-time saloon and has two pool tables in the back and plenty of other games, while also being big enough to grab traditional American food from the menu. If you’re still hungry, check out the New York Milkshake Company for one of the best $6 shakes of your life.
