In the magazine this week, Adam Platt files a double review: At Fatty ‘Cue, Zak Pelaccio and pitmaster Robbie Richter combine forces to produce “a different, more original kind of alchemy”; at Balaboosta, owner Einat Admony’s Mediterranean food produces a “personal, even motherly, sense of comfort, practicality, and home.” Zucchini is in season; turn the vegetable into a dessert with Pichet Ong’s recipe for a dense, summery cake. Have dinner with Marcus Samuelsson this week, as he prepares a meal at August on Wednesday to celebrate his Top Chef Masters win.
