Chad Koeplinger’s 10 Best Meals of 2013 (So Far)

From secluded gardens in Kathmandu to tasting menus in Napa, the epicurean tattoo artist criss-crosses the globe in search of delicious food.



5. Sammy's Roumanian Steakhouse (New York, NY)

Address and phone: 157 Chrystie St (212-673-0330)

This place is amazing. Fucking amazing. You could go there on the day your Mom died and have a good time. The musical stylings of the legendary Dani Luv. The jar of schmaltz (rendered chicken fat) that you pour on everything. Steaks as big as your three-year-old child, with so much garlic you breathe fire. What's not to love? Do not forget the egg creams. They aren't even good, but who gives a shit? If you aren't drunk from the frozen vodka bottles and cranberry juice, you will definitely be drunk on the atmosphere. Look out for my shirt I ripped of of my body and hung on the wall last time I was there.
