SyracuseDiners.com, Eggs in Heat, Bourdain needs a contributor and Tasty (Travel) Tweets

Food Links Compiled by Nathan Mattise

  • Not that the heatwave in CNY seems to have passed, can we all agree this was awesome.
  • Anthony Bourdain has a new book coming out. The exciting news is that someone will be a featured contributor to it (Note: I apologize in advance. If I pen a piece I’m proud of, it will be self-promoted like crazy for votes).
  • Finally, I’ve had some great travel recently between San Diego, Georgia and NYC. Despite a girlfriend who insisted on a no-camera clause during our meals, I managed to squeeze out a few Tasty Tweets that can cover these places:

Few quick notes on The Lady and Sons: this place has a buzz about it. I was so excited I had multiple misspellings in my tweet even (Deen*, restaurant*). You need to go as soon as the place opens to guarantee a seat, you get free Deen-esque starters like cheesy biscuits and something that equates to a fried butter pancake. I was also told by a well-traveled professional it was the best steak he’s ever eaten.

I think it’s hard to find a good, appetizing rendition of hash. Malibu hit the spot however, especially on the night after a 21st celebration. Interior reminds you of a cheesy local place really trying to hard for fancy, prices are on par for NYC.

This was a gem in Astoria. Tasty’s prices were lower than most, the menu was diverse (even has a healthy options section), the interior is legitimately pleasing (brick, clean) and any place that offers hamsteak for breakfast is worth a return trip. Wish I had more time to try and sample all the various nationality breakfast options they were advertising.

Have you visited a great diner recently? Tell us about it!

You like eating at diners, too? Of course, who doesn’t?

If there’s a diner you find yourself smitten over (or I suppose disgusted by) and the world needs to know about it, here’s your chance. Diners Without Frosted Tips is opening up for user-generated reviews.

(Technically we always have been, I myself am a user, but now everyone should share).

After working on an Applied Research in Content Management consultation this past week, I’ve found a fair deal of numbers that support opening up to a user-generated format  in order to maximize the potential of a site. Between that and a few recent Tasty Tweet submissions (is that too lame? I just came up with that for user-Tweeted reviews), I just wanted to reiterate how Diners Without Frosted Tips is always open for submissions.

Two Ways to Contribute:

1) Simply take a gander at any of our reviews and apply that format to your recent diner experiences. Make sure you get a few pictures (the food, the exterior, the interior) and the vital stats (Is it pricey? What are the hours? Location, speciality meals, etc.), but the rest is up to you. It can be as long/short, creative/straight-forward as you’d like. E-mail it in afterward and we’ll read it over for spelling and grammatical errors.

2) Send in some diner thoughts via Twitter, Facebook or any other social networking means (including our comment sections!) and we’ll compile them in a routine post highlighting the best of user-generated short and sweet diner thoughts. Check out a few recent Tasty Tweets (still lame? I think it’s growing on me) below for examples:

The Eat N’ Park in Burbank, Ca. gets high praise and has it’s own catchy jingle.

The Starlite Diner & Lounge in Allentown, Pa. is in need of some web presence, send those thoughts in.
