TV Hostess Kelly Choi Likes Her Sandwiches With Mayo and Mustard
If you haven’t seen Kelly Choi sporting a trench coat on her show Secrets of New York, you’ve probably seen her donning skimpier attire as the host of New York Eats. She also just appeared as a judge on Iron Chef and will soon team with a liquor sponsor to publish The 25 Most Delicious Dishes in New York. What’s one of them? The moussaka at Pylos. “I’m crazy about Greek and Middle Eastern food,” Choi tells us. She doesn’t have the extravagant expense account you’d expect, and she isn’t often hungry for complimentary desserts — but still, the former Ford model managed to put away quite a bit this week.
Vegans to Make Last Stand TomorrowOur colleagues over at Daily Intelligencer recently got into a food fight with the vegan community. So, in the spirit of reconciliation, Grub Street offers up the following information. One of the most venerable vegan institutions, the Whole Earth Bakery and Kitchen, is fixing to go belly up on March 31. But the vegans won’t take that lying down, and a rally is scheduled tomorrow. Various East Village activist types will be present and accounted for, led by the ubiquitous Reverend Billy. We don’t know exactly what they are protesting, or to whom, but it is undoubtedly the vegan thing to do.
Rally for the Whole Earth Bakery, Tompkins Square Park (near 7th St. between Ave. A and Ave. B); 212-889-0303. RSVP requested.
