This Week in Eat me daily: Cochon 555, Martha and Milk Bar, Food Network Ripoffs, etc etc

We went to Cochon 555 in New York City and thought Del Posto was totally robbed of the win.
We covered potential layoffs and changes at Slashfood.

Khoren Mouradian's Music Video 'Moo Moo'

We know it's not new, but we only just came across the insane music video for "Moo Moo" by Khoren Mouradian. It's "Old McDonald Had A Farm" jumbled up with Armenian pop music, farm animals, children in a classroom in a barn, keytars, hay fights, and gratuitous breast shots. When they start singing "Quack quack [...]

The Design of Food Merchandising Signs

We were fascinated by the graphic design of the food merchandising signs on South Bay Abram's website.

Martha Stewart Visits Momofuku Milk Bar, Crack Pie Made by Christina Tosi and David Chang [video]

Today, as part of The Martha Stewart Show's erroneously-named "10th Street Restaurant Tour" of Manhattan's East Village, Martha paid a visit to Momofuku Milk Bar (which is actually on 2nd Avenue and 13th Street).
