  14. The Annotated Dish
    Eighty One’s Off-the-Bone Osso Buco Requires Grits to Clean It UpChef Ed Brown’s new restaurant, Eighty One, hasn’t been open long, but, along with the recently opened Dovetail and South Gate, it’s helping to lead a mini-renaissance of ambitious fine-dining restaurants in New York. One of the most popular dishes on the opening menu, according to Brown, is a “homey and rustic dish, brought up to the restaurant level”: deboned osso buco for one. As always, mouse over the different parts of the dish to hear them described in the chef’s own words.

    Eighty One Takes the Haute Barnyard, Locavore Thing 81 Steps Further In what has to be the clearest example yet of Haute Barnyard run amok, Eighty One has sent us a scroll containing a list of “81 people who bring Eighty One to life.” Rob and Robin weren’t kidding when they said the ingredients were meticulously sourced — everyone gets credit from the “mushroom expert” to the frog’s-legs purveyor to exec chef Ed Brown’s body double. There are more shout-outs here than on a Diddy album, but we suppose it’s not the worst idea — Brown wouldn’t want to be accused of making false organic claims.

    Sea Grill Chef Ready to Become a ‘Free Man’After thirteen years at the helm of the Sea Grill, Ed Brown appears to have found his own restaurant. The chef is close to a deal on a space in the Excelsior Hotel, across the street from the Planetarium. “I’m not denying it, but I haven’t gotten the papers back,” says Brown, who hopes to open a 130-seat American restaurant there this fall. (He will not handle the hotel’s room service.) “It will be upscale, but not precious,” he promises. “I am so ready to go and do my own thing and be a free man.” — Beth Landman
