Most Americans are familiar with the typical date of dinner and a movie, but for the cultured few among us, their version of a Saturday night out on the town is dinner in one of the world’s premiere culinary capitals, and a trip to the New York Philharmonic. The dinner part, however, can be tricky as food quality, price point, and proximity to Lincoln Center all factor in to the decision of where to eat before the show.

Luckily, Lincoln Center Kitchen is here to make that decision a no-brainer. Located on the ground floor of light-filled Avery Fisher Hall, the restaurant was conceived by chef Ed Brown, who has created a menu of classic, all-American cuisine.

Appetizers include poached jumbo shrimp with three dipping sauces – traditional cocktail sauce, a saffron aioli, and a horseradish variety; an inventive smoked salmon wedge with lettuce, green goddess dressing, fresh horseradish, and multigrain toast, and red and golden beet salad with coach farm goat cheese, baby watercress, and pistachios. Some of the mains offered are roasted Bella Bella baby chicken with Anson Mills grits, mushrooms, and natural jus, and a short rib burger with New York State cheddar, aioli, vidalia onions, heirloom tomatoes, and green market pickles, served with kettle chips. Don’t forget about dessert, and choose from dishes like bourbon caramel bread pudding and, of course, New York-style cheesecake.

The restaurant is open Tuesday through Saturday beginning at 5 p.m. Lunch is served on Fridays and Saturdays if there is a matinee show.

Brioche Suisse Is the Best French Pastry You&aposve Never Heard Of

Pastries were a daily habit when I lived in Paris. The first floor of my apartment building in the 15th arrondissement was occupied by one of those nameless, nondescript bakeries that are in every neighborhood in the city. The stairwell smelled constantly and deliciously of baguettes and croissants, and in a picture-perfect display of unexpected Parisian welcome, the baker carried my bags up the five flights of stairs to my studio on my first day living there. More importantly, though, he introduced me to my new obsession: the brioche suisse.

I ordered it before I knew what it was called, after first verifying that the brown bits spilling from the sides of the flattish pastry were in fact chocolate chips and not raisins, and that the cream-colored filling was indeed cream and not cheese. “That one, there,” I said, figuring it would be as good a breakfast as any of the other raisin-free items in the case. At first bite, though, I realized I would need to know its name so I could order it in all of the bakeries in all of the neighborhoods in France. 𠇋rioche suisse,” my baker told me – a name that rolls off the tongue more easily than 𠇌roissant” or “pain au chocolat” or “kouign-amman,” and all the more reason for me to order une, deux, even trois brioches suisses at any boulangerie or patisserie that sold them.

For the uninitiated, a brioche suisse is a particularly delightful viennoiserie consisting of brioche dough or croissant dough rolled out and then folded around vanilla pastry cream and chocolate chips. The chocolate is more evenly distributed than in pain au chocolat, and the pastry cream is less overwhelming than, say, the filling in a Danish. While brioche is delicious on its own, chocolate makes it better. (Chocolate makes most things better.) It’s perfect for breakfast, dessert, or midday goûter. So why, you may now find yourself asking, is this the first time you’re reading about it?

When I came back to New York from Paris, I managed to break my daily pastry habit, but I never stopped missing morning brioches suisses. I googled variations of 𠇋rioche suisse New York” regularly in the hopes of finding it listed on a menu at one of New York’s many bakeries and pastry shops. When little came up, I looked for brioche suisse recipes to confirm it was indeed what this perfect pastry was called. My Parisian baker wasn’t wrong, but New York was – they were absent from almost all of the city’s pastry, bakery, and café menus.

In 2011, during one of my menu-reading sessions, I was overjoyed to see brioche suisse listed on the website for the newly opened Epicerie Boulud. I trekked to midtown with the express purpose of getting one for myself. When I arrived at the Lincoln Center location, I didn’t see them out amid the croissants, danishes and other viennoiseries. Were they sold out for the day? Or perhaps waiting to come out of the oven in the back? The woman at the counter pointed me to a muffin-sized brioche, dotted with pearled sugar and pink candies. It wasn’t remotely what I wanted, and I walked out with nothing.

Later, on a separate internet deep-dive, I discovered that 𠇋rioche Suisse” was also listed on the menu at Colson Patisserie, a Park Slope café not too far from my own Brooklyn address. Skeptical of what that meant to the pastry chefs of New York, I tried my luck there. Somehow, they were sold out every time I stopped by.

I was finally reunited with the most delightful of pastries a few months ago at Colson’s second Brooklyn location in Industry City. Their croissant-dough brioche suisse, which is sometimes also called a pain suisse or chocolatine, successfully filled the rectangle-sized hole in my stomach. But why did it have to take so long? Are Americans just not interested in the delicious combination of dough, pastry cream, and chocolate?

Yonatan Israel, owner of Colson Patisserie, says Colson’s customers tend to be confused by the brioche suisse—they find the visible pastry cream unsettling or assume that there is Swiss cheese involved (which, I agree, would be gross). And Colson’s wholesale partners generally aren’t interested in selling a pastry that needs to be explained, so Colson doesn’t make as many brioches suisses as they do the more basic viennoiserie.


Lincoln Park Whole Foods opens with lots of neighborhood flavor

The Whole Foods Market at Fullerton and Sheffield opened Wednesday with the usual hoopla (very, very long braided bread was used for their traditional bread breaking ceremony in lieu of old-style ribbon-cutting). And when customers finally headed through the doors, they found a supermarket with a neighborhood feel in its salute to DePaul University (royal blue and scarlet color accents), the five quinoa salads on the food bar, the street-side walk-up coffee window, and the Fullerton Red Line stop (including a Fullerton Stop Pale Ale from Begyle Brewery in Chicago).

"We're a community store. That's the mission," says Whole Foods' spokeswoman Allison Phelps.

"We designed the store after getting feedback from the community, understanding the current food trends, understanding who the customer is going to be," added David Schwartz, regional vice president of Whole Foods, explaining how the team met with community groups to understand what they were looking for. "This is not going to look like the Streeterville store or the West Loop store."

Benno's Lincoln Gears Up for Opening

The restaurant was sparsely populated. The menus were paper, and conspicuously absent from them: prices.

But inside the fall's most anticipated restaurant opening, the open kitchen was humming, the attentive wait staff was buzzing and diners were at last feasting on the culinary creations of Jonathan Benno's first restaurant.

Lincoln opens to the public on Sept. 24 but last week the $20 million restaurant in Lincoln Center quietly began what is known in the industry as "Friends and Family" tastings.

Indeed, there were friends. Spotted in the dining room for lunch on Thursday: Chef April Bloomfield and restaurateur Ken Friedman, partners in the Breslin and Spotted Pig Marc Murphy of the Anvil NY restaurant group Marco Canora, an owner of Hearth and Michael Lomonaco of Porter House New York.

With plush banquettes, an undulating ceiling and expansive glass walls, the digs were posh (private bathrooms where hotel towels replace paper ones). Inside the open kitchen, Mr. Benno was hard at work, with a row of attentive cooks gazed at his every move and separated from the dining area by a mere sheet of glass.


Upcoming Demo Schedule

Friday, March 27: Cookbooks and the Women’s Suffrage Movement
Guest chef: Bonnie Benwick
Guest speaker: Lisa Kathleen Graddy
Demonstration at 1:00 p.m. in the Wallace H. Coulter Performance Plaza, 1 West

Did suffragists care about cooking? As the Smithsonian celebrates the 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote in the United States, the food history team along with guest chef Bonnie Benwick will delve into the role of cookbooks in supporting the Women’s Suffrage Movement. Benwick, who recently retired as the deputy Food editor/recipe editor at the Washington Post, will help us understand the similarities and differences between cooking in the time of the suffragists and today. The cooking demonstration will also illuminate the museum’s exhibition, Creating Icons: How We Remember Woman Suffrage. Smithsonian curator Lisa Kathleen Graddy will join us on stage to share powerful stories of women activists who helped secure the right to vote for women in 1920.

Please join us on the Coulter Plaza after the program for a special Objects Out of Storage event with rarely seen materials from the Women’s Suffrage Movement.

Guest Chef: Melissa Clark
Demonstration at 1:00 p.m. in the Wallace H. Coulter Performance Plaza, 1 West

New York Times food writer Melissa Clark has helped countless cooks overcome their fear of the Instant Pot through her video series and popular book Dinner in an Instant. Join her as we examine key kitchen technologies and culinary techniques that have made the home cook’s life easier, and hopefully, stress free. Clark will share a recipe for poule au pot pie from her new cookbook, Dinner in French, that uses the Instant Pot to make this French-inspired dish both accessible and fun. After the demonstration, she will sign copies of her cookbooks, which will be available for purchase on site.

Friday, May 1: The Vilna Vegetarian Cookbook
Guest Chef: Joan Nathan
Demonstration at 1:00 p.m. in the Wallace H. Coulter Performance Plaza, 1 West

Our guest chef Joan Nathan is a renowned cookbook author and expert on Jewish foodways. During this demonstration, she will shed light on a largely unknown culinary educator and author, Fania Lewando, who lived in Vilna, Lithuania in the early 20th century. Lewando authored one of the first Jewish cookbooks dedicated to vegetarianism, The Vilna Vegetarian Cookbook (1938). Join us as we prepare dishes from Lewando's cookbook and explore the history of Vilna, the devastating impacts of the holocaust on the city's Jewish population, and one woman's efforts to sustain her community through food.

Joan Nathan will sign copies of The Vilna Vegetarian Cookbook, for which she wrote the foreword, as well as several of her cookbooks after the demonstration. Books will be available for purchase on site. Please note that there are a limited number of Vilna cookbooks available.

This cooking demo is held in partnership with the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research, which will launch its latest online course, A Seat at the Table: A Journey into Jewish Food on May 1st attendees at the demo will be offered free registrations to the course, which covers the history of Ashkenazi Jewish cuisine through filmed lectures and cooking demonstrations by leading scholars and chefs.


Asia Grille adds second location with a plan for the future

Charles Chin's has had a long career in restaurants from The Islander in Warwick to the Asia Grille in Lincoln and most recently opening a second Asia Grille in Cranston. After sitting empty due to long pandemic-related construction delays, the Garden City restaurant opened in the fall.

That restaurant is a new model for the Chin family, as they licensed it to partner owners. The cooks and recipes are all from Asia Grille. The new restaurant gave many staff work, during the pandemic.

Also new is depending only on takeout for sales at the Lincoln restaurant since the pandemic began almost a year ago.

But it hasn't all been bad. During the past months, Chin said they have been working in Lincoln to advance the art of cooking with chefs from other restaurants. Without diners in the restaurant, they are able to collaborate in the kitchen on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Chin has always been one to embrace learning through community.

As a boy in the &rsquo60s, Chin attended Beneficent Congregational Church on Weybosset Street in Providence. After choir rehearsal, he would go off to one of the city&rsquos landmark Chinese restaurants -- Mee Hong, Ming Garden or Luke&rsquos -- to help in the kitchen, he recalled when we last spoke in 2008.

He&rsquod cut up vegetables or do whatever needed to be done for a few hours and a few bucks. It replaced having a paper route, he said.

It also prepared him for his future role in running the family business, The Islander, a Chinese food institution in Warwick, and now the Asia Grille in Lincoln Mall Plaza.

Chin learned something different at each restaurant where the chefs and managers worked differently and each business had its own personality.

Different is what he brought to last year's opening of Asia Grille in Garden City. There are three co-owners and partners in the restaurant. They are Jason Sugarman (owner of Johnny Rockets), Rong Cong (owner of Pokeworks in Providence with Sugarman) and Yan Xu (owner of Yan's Cuisine in Providence).

"It's expensive real estate, so you need to see if your model can navigate through," Chin said.

Chin, 70, added that as he prepares for retirement, the arrangement makes sense.

He has also engaged his daughters, Chenelle and Chayenne, in the business. Both have stepped away from their careers to help get the new restaurant off the ground, and work with their father.

At Garden City, Chenelle Chin said each of the new partners brings their own expertise to the business. Cooks from the Lincoln restaurant worked to train the new staff. There, they have limited indoor dining per COVID rules but they also have outdoor dining when the temperatures are right.

Meanwhile, in Lincoln, they had to reinvent the wheel, the Chins said.

For example, Asia Grille is used to doing lots of functions at nearby industrial parks for companies feeding their staff. That business disappeared as people began working from home. As some staff moved back into their offices and some function orders resumed, the model of buffet style they were accustomed to has now gone.

When companies order lunch now, it's individual combination plates due to the pandemic.

"That is a new challenge," said Chenelle. Getting many meals prepared and readied for takeout within a tight time frame requires speed and skill.

She said that just before the pandemic, Asia Grille introduced online ordering. Their timing could not have been better.

In Lincoln, they had all the technology printed in English and Chinese. That helped facilitate packing. They had four cashiers set up to check customers out so no one was waiting and uncomfortable.

They never opened indoor dining in Lincoln to give customers getting takeout a place to spread out and get out of the cold.

"We were able to do it safely," said Chenelle.

They also had a supportive clientele that kept ordering all along, said Charles Chin.

The Chins' history with Rhode Island diners goes back to The Islander. It was started in 1972 by Chin's uncle Philip and his wife Lin Lee, together with his father and mother, Lem and May Chin.

Charles Chin and his family had run Asia in Lincoln for six years, starting in 1982, then moved to Warwick to help run and expand The Islander with his cousins until 2000.

He returned to Asia in 2001. When the space at the end of Lincoln Plaza opened up in 2003, he moved in with a new decor and a new name: the Asia Grille.

All the while his daughters were growing up and getting their education outside the restaurant business.

Being the oldest son in his family, Charles Chin said he had to fulfill the role of taking over the business his family established.

"I wanted my daughters to have the freedom to do what they want," he said.

Chayenne graduated with a business degree from Bryant University. Chenelle earned public health degrees from Brown University and Johns Hopkins, where she got her master's degree.

But they left their jobs to help their family open the new restaurant.

"I wanted to see if it was anything I'd like to do long term," said Chenelle. A year and a half in, she says, "It&rsquos going well."

But she's waiting for the pandemic to pass before she decides what to do.

In the meantime, her father Charles and mother Ceci, will keep running the Lincoln restaurant. They'll be customer-oriented and support a staff that needs to pay the bills and continue their community work to support underfunded operations.
