Apple TV+’s show “Ted Lasso,” about an American football coach who crosses the pond to coach a football team with absolutely no knowledge of the sport, has taken the country by storm. Fans point to its tongue-in-cheek humor and endearing characters as part of the appeal. One of the feel-good aspects of the comedy is the delicious-looking biscuits Ted is always buying for Rebecca. And today only, Milk Bar is offering their take on the treat via their stores in LA and NYC. Along with her team, Milk Bar founder Christina Tosi created a recipe for the “tender, buttery, and delightfully crumbly biscuits,” which will come in their signature pink boxes.

After a rent increase and the coronavirus pandemic left the fate of Neir’s Tavern in question, the history of the nearly 192-year-old Queens establishment will be preserved forever following a street co-naming ceremony Saturday. The intersection of 78th Street and 88th Avenue in Woodhaven is now known as “Neir’s Tavern Way,” honoring the waterhole that opened on the corner in 1829 and is considered New York City’s oldest bar.

“Our job was easy – restore the building to its former glory and use reclaimed building materials and antique lighting to create a restaurant and bar that feel like they really belong in the space,” says Huw Gott, co-owner of the NYC outpost of London’s popular steakhouse Hawksmoor, referring to its location in Gramercy’s historic United Charities Building. The restaurant is located in the landmarked building’s grand Assembly Hall, under the original 30-foot vaulted ceiling. It’s the perfect place to enjoy one of Hawksmoor’s famous dry-aged steaks that are cooked over live charcoal. Ahead, see more of the stunning space and hear about the project firsthand from Gott.

Tuesday, September 21 marks the first day of the Mid-Autumn Festival. Also known as the Moon Festival or Mooncake Festival, the Asian holiday celebrates what is considered the brightest and fullest moon of the year, as well as the fall harvest. In China, where perhaps the holiday is most popular, it’s similar to Thanksgiving, with families gathering for a meal, accompanied by lantern lighting. Mooncakes, the namesake food of the vent, are another important component. The round pastries are traditionally filled with red bean or lotus seed paste, wrapped around a salted dug egg that symbolizes the moon. They’re then pressed into a mold to emboss the top of the pastry in elaborate designs, which all have different meanings. Ahead, we’ve rounded up the 13 best places in New York City to find all varieties of mooncakes, along with a few options for ordering online.

Several years back, 6sqft told the story of the original Coney Island hot dog. Started in 1867 by German immigrant Charles Feltman, who’s considered the inventor of the hot dog on a bun, the Coney Island eatery and amusement park Feltman’s eventually closed in 1954. But brothers Michael and Joe Quinn brought the brand back in 2015, in part because they themselves love Coney Island red hots but more so to honor the legacy of their late brother Jimmy, who died in the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks at just 23. This year, they’ll continue to honor Jimmy with a special fundraiser for the 3 Brothers Foundation, which supports veterans and service members, to which they’ll donate 100 percent of proceeds from the new Jimmy Quinn 2021 Memorial T-Shirt.
