We’re nuts about nuts! Not surprisingly, we’re not alone. Today is National Pecan Day! If you’re scratching your head and thinking, “Hmm…that’s an odd food holiday,” think again.

Let them eat cake! The context of this famous Marie Antoinette proclamation wasn't great, but we admit we like the cake part.

So, we are pretty much obsessed with Tijuana Picnic, the new bi-level, "elevated Mexican" restaurant located in Manhattan's lower east side neighborhood. Conceived by Jon Neidich and Jean-Marc Houmard (managing partners of Acme), together with Huy Chi Le (of Indochine), designer Robert McKinley, and bartending veteran Jim Kearns (currently of The Happiest Hour and formerly of the NoMad Hotel and Mayahuel), this might just be our favorite opening in a while. Not only did we score their secret duck and foie gras empanada recipe, but we got owner Jean-Marc Houmard to answer a few of our burning foodie questions — check out his answers below.
