Food Flash

NYC has Chumley’s and L.A. has Tavern. The NYC vs L.A. Rivalry continues and our Foodboombloggers bring it on.

Chumley’s a former NYC speakeasy and pub for the literati of yesteryear has been transformed into a clubby “gastropub”.  It serves high-end food created by one of  New York’s rising stars Victoria Bramley and its owned by Alessandro Borgonone of Nakazawa sushi fame.

Tavern in L.A.’s toney Brentwood is a neighborhood experience like few others. It’s a place far different than its name suggests. Susan Goin of Luques fame created this high-end casual place and it continues to please the locals as well as many celebs.

Foodboombloggers Ron W in L.A. and Ken S in NYC recently whipped out their credit cards to dine at these extraordinarily designed places that serve super burgers that are swimming in Fontina or bone marrow. Among many other notable dishes, the fried chicken at both places, may be to die for. Who knew? Check out the reviews and send us your takes on this latest East Coast West Coast rumble.
