The Chefs Who Won Social Media This Week

  • @TheMarrowNYC had soft-shell crab with greens and ramps this week. Food jealousy is a terrible, terrible thing.

  • Il Buco’s homemade salumi and Parmigiano Reggiano makes for quite the footlong.
  • How about stinging nettle fettucine with lamb ragu? (Photo: @BabboRistorante)
  • The classic pizza at  @NicolettaNYC is now gluten-free.
  • @rubirosanyc showcases some pretty tempting lamb loin with ramps, eggplant, and beans.
  • If you’ve been wondering what dinner service at newly opened Lafayette looks like: beef tartare cressonaire. (Photo: @andrewcarmellini)
  • Oyster sliders at @thedutchmiami—if only teleportation were real.
  • Most insane taco ever (this week): chimichurri shrimp, chicken skin, and beefsteak tomato from @empellon.
  • This little piggy had no feet… (Photo: @chefconor)
  • @tylerflorence calls this “the perfect fried chicken.” It's certainly attractive.
  • Even a haute cuisine master like @ericripert enjoys sprinkles from time to time.
  • We must also be into sprinkles this week, because we’re loving @momomilkbar’s confetti birthday cake.
  • @aprilbloomfield shows us the new special at @salvationtaco.

Each week, we bring you the best Instagram and Twitter snaps from chefs and restaurants everywhere. By following these folks on the front lines of the food world, you can get a sneak peek at brand-new menu specials, catch wind of seasonal ingredients coming into play, and spy on the behind-the-scenes feasts enjoyed by chefs and their crews. But mostly, you learn the limits of your own food jealousy.

This week, we have ramps (obviously), cakes, and even grilled kangaroo (!). If you know of other chefs and restaurants that you think kill it on the ‘nets, let us know on Twitter: @firstwefeast.
