@chriscourt shows us this throwback to the summer months with his “essentials” — an oyster line up served fresh over ice. while oysters can be eaten plain, many restaurants serve them with a side of lemon, cocktail sauce, horseradish, and sometimes even hot sauce. the flavor profiles of the oysters change depending on the type of water they grow in — some can have a very briny taste, while others can offer a more delicate, sweet one — so the undertones of those flavors can be fortified or complimented by the sauces or toppings the oysters are dressed in. have you tried oysters? what’s your favorite way to eat them?

The frenzied, bustling energy and cacophony of the city slowly subsides as the door to this lower manhattan eatery closes. chandeliers catch the falling lights of late afternoon, twinkling as they decorate the watercolor wallpaper in tiny dancing stars that run along the smooth hides of the plush leather armchairs, tucked in various corners of the bar. fresh flowers bloom in bursts of ivory and fuchsia hues around the room — and just like that, it seems we’ve escaped to paris. who would love to spend the afternoon daydreaming here?

Like many of us, @dancingwithabear finds inspiration not only through food but also with the people behind the plates. she is able to connect with the stories and experiences of the industry by photographing scenes from the culinary world. “it’s very inspiring to work with so many different people, so much delicious food and incredible hospitality experiences. it gave me an opportunity to grow, to connect and to feel challenged. i’m grateful, happy and full off of pizza most of the days.” what kind food stories do you love to read about most?(πŸ“·: @dancingwithabear πŸ“: uncle tony's)

There’s nothing like coming home to a steaming plate of pasta on those cold-weather days. @deliciousmarther fuses some of our favorite flavors from india and italy in this coconut curry pasta dish. cardamon, ground ginger, yellow curry, and coconut cream meld together to form this hearty pasta sauce before being layered over fresh-made pasta rolls. what are some of your favorite alternative pasta sauces to marinara?

Earthy, whole-roasted garlic cloves, generous globes of mozzarella, delicate sheets of prosciutto, gem-colored cherry tomatoes, and grilled, olive oil-slathered bread make up this mouthwatering, sunday supper spread by @dennistheprescott . sometimes, the simplest things in life make for the best pleasures — and the best meals. what's your favorite sunday dinner?

@tumblinbumblinecrumblincookie has us salivating with these enormous vegan, miso, espresso, bourbon, and vanilla chocolate-chip cookies. “there’s something about the salted caramel hum of miso and brown sugar and a little roasty kick of coffee that does a culinary disco dance,” she describes of her kaleidoscope flavor combo. we’re loving her generosity with chocolate chips too. what are some unique toppings you guys toss into cookie batter?

Can you believe this sloppy joe is vegetarian? @vanillaandbean dished up a recipe for a tangy, lentil base to layer under red onion, pickles, mustard, and a beautiful, golden-charred poppyseed bun. she suggests serving it up with something delicious and oven-fried on the side — tater tots, fries, or onion rings. would you swap this for #meatlessmonday?

Color meets flavor in this eye-popping, chicken-skewer dish from @bakersroyale_naomi . succulent peaches meet the refreshing, licorice bite of thai basil and play to balance out the robust taste of coal-charred poultry. in its originating countries in the middle east, this dish is made by threading assorted meats onto skewers or spears and then cooking or grilling them. today, you can see many variants of this dish — including vegetables, seafood, and sometimes even fruit — in parts of asia and modern cooking in the united states. it’s an easy way to get all your proteins and vegetables cut up and cooked in one go. how would you layer yours?

@allasyummyfood demonstrates her love of russian food with this eclectic spread including “pelmeni” — a russian dumpling filled with herbs, onions, and minced meat — herring, black rye bread, pickles, marinated mushrooms, “vinegret” — a traditional chopped salad made up of beets, potatoes, carrots, onions, and sauerkraut or pickles — sour cabbage, and a traditional borsht soup — a sour, beet, and vegetable soup with sour cream. with so many diverse choices, it’d be hard to decide which one to dive into first. which one would you pick (πŸ“· : @allasyummyfood πŸ“: berlin, germany)

A striking whirl of smoky salmon and tangerine hues and earthy, wood-laden textures immediately draw diners into the enticing and moody design palate of this chic restaurant in las vegas. located inside the venetian hotel — and led by powerhouse, venezuelan chef lorena garcia — is chica, a sophisticated eatery where patrons are immersed nightly into the flare and robust flavors of latin cuisine. with dynamic culinary notes brought by food influences from peru, mexico, and brazil, this vibrant restaurant serves up wholesome, fusion-filled dishes such as a braised short rib with house-made anise and sweet “piloncillo” (a brown, unrefined sugar) arepas. dining tip: start your meal off with some of the rich appetizers like the house, hass guacamole — served with homemade arepas, plantain chips, and tortilla chips — or the buttery hamachi ceviche. next, move onto the crowd favorite, a citrus rotisserie chicken with peruvian purple potato salad, hearts of palm, and an emerald, herby chimichurri. this one is best enjoyed with a glass of pinot noir — we recommend the laberinto label. hailing from chile, this wine airs on the lighter side for a red, and its earthy undertones — clove and cinnamon — pair wonderfully with the flavors of the roast.
