    Bartenders Reassert Stylishness in the Face of Chef DandyismYesterday, we continued to marvel that chefs have become beacons of fashion, but we all know that bartenders are the real fops. Guys like Jim Meehan, Sasha Petraske, and David Wondrich aren’t waiting around for Maxim or Esquire to doll them up — in fact, as evident from a Time Out how-to on cocktail dandyism, even Toby Maloney, the guy who’s responsible for the mai tais and Zombies at the Rusty Knot, wouldn’t be caught dead in a Hawaiian shirt.

    Are You a Foodie or a Foodist?The big discussion at last night’s “Brooklyn Eats” talk in Dumbo was the semantic difference between “foodie” and “foodist.” Phoebe Damrosch, author of Service Included pointed out that, in New York, “foodie” has become a derogatory term used to describe those who sit at home watching Semi-Homemade on the Food Network. Another type of foodie, an audience member added, is one who seeks out new restaurants, wines, and foods only to check them off a laundry list of places to see and be seen. Edible Brooklyn editor Gabrielle Langholtz suggested that bona fide food fans — those who read food books, travel to food destinations, and taste obsessively — could refer to themselves as “foodists,” as intense Star Trek fans go not by “trekkies” but “trekkers”. (Anne Saxelby, heirloom-tomato farmer Tim Stark, and beverage historian and panelist David Wondrich could all be identified as foodists.) To add to his cred, Wondrich served Hennessy punch (historically accurate, according to Bombay’s seventeenth-century regulations) out of a paint bucket. —Jennifer Lynn Pelka

    Brooklyn Food Writers to Rap Tonight in DumboBrooklyn, besides its world-famous supply of suspension bridges, legendary pizzerias, indicted Gambino associates, and doomed Atlantic Yards–area residences, is also rich in writers. So it was no problem to pull together three good food scribes for a talk tonight at 7 p.m. at Powerhouse Arena in Dumbo. The speakers will be former Brooklyn Record editor Kara Zuaro (I Like Food, Food Tastes Good), memoirist Phoebe Damrosch (Service Included), and cocktail historian David Wondrich (Imbibe!). Edible Brooklyn editrix Gabrielle Langholtz will moderate; the tickets are $15 and available here Local Writers Talk Food [A Brooklyn Life] Related: Phoebe Damrosch, Formerly of Per Se, Apologizes for Spilling a Martini on You Rock Star Recipes!
