Midtown’s new food corridor, the Deco, debuts in September with quite an impressive seller roster, including meals from French cafe Maman, Mexican eating place Antojitos El Atoradero, and Chinese noodle shop Little Tong. The Art Deco-stimulated grocery store at 231 West thirty-ninth St., among Seventh and Eighth Streets, may also consist of a bar and event space, plus nine food carriers from French baked meals to Hawaiian spam fried rice. Vendors like Maman and Little Tong have been chosen from over a hundred and sixty potentialities, in keeping with a spokesperson, to show off “beneath-the-radar” eating places.
Other carriers include Beach Bistro 96, a Brazilian restaurant recently closed in Rockaway Beach; Italian meals from Mani in Pasta; a by-product of the East Village’s Jeepney Filipino Gastropub; and alcoholic ice cream keep Tipsy Scoop. A new Hawaiian spot called Huli Huli and a brand new concept from the Maman team called Papa Poule can also be within the space.
Midtown has its fair share of close meal halls, including the Pennsy above Penn Station, the sprawling Gotham West Market on Eleventh Avenue, and the City Kitchen close to Times Square. But the Deco’s lineup is a step above, bringing relatively appeared principles throughout the city to the area for the first time. A bar on the Deco will serve New York beers, themed cocktails, and wine. It opens in September; see a full list of vendors below.

Tipsy Scoop: A boozy ice cream pop-up during the primary month of the food almost. People associate a deep freeze with meat, fish, vegetables, and fruit. However, baked foods keep equally well below zero. Make full use of your deep freeze this year by preparing cakes, biscuits, pies, savories, and even bread for the busy Christmas or parties. If you expect visitors, think of the convenience of preparing morning and afternoon teas in advance. No fuss or bother; take items from your freezer to thaw while you sit relaxed and enjoy your visitors’ company.
Package unfilled, uniced cakes in plastic bags, seal well, label, and freeze. It is advisable to protect them with a double layer of plastic. Cake batter may be frozen in greased cake tins. Wrap and seal well and freeze. To bake, remove the packaging and place the frozen cake in the oven until cooked.
Cream filled cakes
Both fresh cream and synthetic cream may be deep-frozen successfully. If fresh cream is used, I suggest leaving it to stand in a refrigerator, after whipping, for at least 2-3 hours to allow the water content to settle at the bottom of the bowl, then fill cake sponges. This method prevents a wet base from thawing.
Ice cakes should be frozen first, then wrapped and sealed for storage in the freezer. Water-type icing tends to become very brittle after freezing. Synthetic icing becomes very sticky. I suggest keeping to a simple butter icing using any fruit juice (lemon, orange, grapefruit, passion fruit, etc.).
