Food at the Movies!

How did popcorn become the standard theater snack instead of say, soup? From the nickelodeons of the Great Depression to the multiplexes of today, what we eat in front of the big screen has changed a lot. So Amanda and Daniel are headed to the theater to pull back the curtain on food at the movies and find out why indie theaters and legacy players alike are installing professional kitchens next to the popcorn machine.Then, we get into the biggest food stories of the week! We've got a look at an icky restaurant dress code, the latest in weird tech v. restaurant dynamics, and thoughts on a wacky new canned alcoholic beverage. Also! We've got a survey out that'll help us make the Digest better and better. It takes no more than five minutes, and it really helps us out! Take it here.Stories:• This Dress Code Sucks• LaColombe and MillerCoors Enter the Canned Beverage Wars• Be Nice to Your Hostess, Ok?Featuring:Professor Jonathan Kuntz (@ucla_tft)Jessica Giesenkerchen (@nitehawkcinema)Jennifer Douglass (@AMCtheatres)Hosts: Amanda Kludt (@kludt),  Editor in Chief, EaterDaniel Geneen (@danielgeneen), Producer, EaterProduced by:Martha Daniel (@martha_c_daniel)More to explore:Check out more great reporting from the Eater newsroom.Subscribe to Amanda’s weekly newsletter here.Follow Us:Eater.comFacebok.com/EaterYouTube.com/Eater@eater on Twitter and InstagramGet in Touch: digest@eater.comAbout Eater: Eater obsessively covers the world through the lens of food, telling stories via audio, television, digital video, and publications in 24 cities across the US and UK.Learn more about your ad choices.

A baby walks into a bar and the internet loses its mind. Why is that? To understand why some people truly cannot tolerate infants and young children in bars and restaurants, regardless of how well behaved they and their parents are, Amanda and Daniel talk to a few people who know a thing or two about babies in bars. First up, writer Kate Willsky lays out the do's and don'ts of grabbing a drink with your baby in tow, and explains why she as a new mom needs a damn cocktail every once in awhile. Then, filmmaker Alison Grasso gives us some historical context to the bar as a community space and Amanda's kids make their Digest debut at The Fly in conversation with restaurateur Nialls Fallon.Plus, we get into the wildest stories of the past couple weeks, from a rogue tomato in the East River, to the Uberfication of restaurant work and why a vegan woman in Australia is taking her neighbors to the supreme court.

With fall looming large around the corner, it’s time to bid farewell to summer and all the wonderful things that includes. But take heart in knowing that not all hope is lost. There’s plenty of good stuff on the horizon this fall, which, we’d argue, is the most exciting season for new restaurants, cookbooks and food-focused TV.Eater restaurant editor Hillary Dixler Canavan, pop culture editor Greg Morabito and managing editor Ellie Krupnick joined Amanda to talk about the season’s most highly anticipated restaurant openings, food TV premieres and forthcoming cookbooks. Daniel is on vacation this week, and we couldn’t possibly do stories without him, but he’ll be back next Friday!Stories:• 9 Food Shows to Watch This Fall• The Most Anticipated Restaurants for Fall• Don’t Put Your Kid on Weight WatchersFeaturing:Amy McCarthy (@aemccarthy)John deBary (@jnd3001)Hosts:Amanda Kludt (@kludt),  Editor in Chief, EaterDaniel Geneen (@danielgeneen), Producer, EaterProduced by:Martha Daniel (@martha_c_daniel)Follow Us:Eater.comFacebok.com/EaterYouTube.com/Eater@eater on Twitter and InstagramGet in Touch:digest@eater.comAbout Eater:Eater obsessively covers the world through the lens of food, telling stories via audio, television, digital video, and publications in 24 cities across the US and UK.Learn more about your ad choices.

Just like there’s a song of the summer, inevitably, each year, a drink of the summer rises to the forefront of our collective consciousness to dominate warm weather gatherings between May and August. This year, it was all about White Claw, a low-calorie, low-carb spiked seltzer that’s been embraced by every kind of drinker out there.We hit the beach to learn more about the drink that’s sweeping backyard parties across the nation, and also called in cocktail expert John deBary (formerly of P.D.T. and Momofuko) for a taste test to find out which brand we should be reaching for at the grocery store. But in the end, we learned more about what our hard seltzer obsession says about our relationship to alcohol than which flavors outperform the others. Plus, we dive into the wildest food stories of the week, from the latest in the fast food chicken bonanza, to a terrible dieting app for kids as young as eight, and more. And be sure to join Amanda and John on September 16th to celebrate the Restaurant Worker's Community Foundation's first birthday!Stories:• The End of Bitch Beer• KFC Joins the Fake Meat and Chicken Craze with One Bucket• Don’t Put Your Kid on Weight WatchersFeaturing:Amy McCarthy (@aemccarthy)John deBary (@jnd3001)Hosts: Amanda Kludt (@kludt),  Editor in Chief, EaterDaniel Geneen (@danielgeneen), Producer, EaterProduced by:Martha Daniel (@martha_c_daniel)More to explore:Check out more great reporting from the Eater newsroom.Subscribe to Amanda’s weekly newsletter here.Follow Us:Eater.comFacebok.com/EaterYouTube.com/Eater@eater on Twitter and InstagramGet in Touch: digest@eater.comAbout Eater: Eater obsessively covers the world through the lens of food, telling stories via audio, television, digital video, and publications in 24 cities across the US and UK.Learn more about your ad choices.

On its surface, restaurant criticism sounds like a pretty great gig. But dining out on the company dime, trying all the best new restaurants and getting paid to eat dinner out isn’t all that glamorous when you peak behind the curtain. We called in two critics, Bon Appétit Deputy Editor Julia Kramer, who’s responsible for the magazine’s annual Hot 10 list, and our own Ryan Sutton, who covers New York, to tell us about the making of a restaurant review and the things that make their line of work uniquely strange. We also get into the biggest food stories of the week, from Popeye’s wildly popular new sandwich, to a beloved Brooklyn pizza joint getting nailed for tax evasion and a Cheeto-fueled conspiracy theory surrounding a certain tech giant.Stories:• Popeye’s vs. Everyone Else• Di Fara Shuttered for Tax Evasion• Does Jeff Bezos Know How to Eat Cheetos?Featuring:Julia Kramer (@juliakramer)Ryan Sutton (@qualityrye)Hosts: Amanda Kludt (@kludt),  Editor in Chief, EaterDaniel Geneen (@danielgeneen), Producer, EaterMore to explore:Check out more great reporting from the Eater newsroom.Subscribe to Amanda’s weekly newsletter here.Follow Us:Eater.comFacebok.com/EaterYouTube.com/Eater@eater on Twitter and InstagramGet in Touch:digest@eater.comAbout Eater:Eater obsessively covers the world through the lens of food, telling stories via audio, television, digital video, and publications in 24 cities across the US and UK.Learn more about your ad choices.

Is orange the new rosé? The explosion in popularity of natural wines has turned the wine world on its ear and may signal a return to ancient winemaking techniques. But what makes a wine natural, anyway? And how do you order it without sounding ridiculous? Amanda and Dan call in wine expert Joe Campanale, owner of Brooklyn’s Fausto and LaLou, to conquer their natural wine insecurities and learn a little bit about the history of the movement in the process. Plus, we look at the controversy surrounding a Momofuko investor, catch up with Kevin O'Leary's spending habits, and make a Pad Thai confession.

Going to popular, hyped-up restaurants is both an obsession and an occupational hazard for editors at Eater. So we've all had our fair share of lines, multi-hour waits, and shut outs.On the first episode of Eater’s Digest, we gathered Eater editors’ best tips and tricks for getting into restaurants with long waits, and then put a theory of our own to the test on a recent Saturday night at five of New York’s most notoriously busy restaurants. Plus, we discuss some of the biggest food news stories of the week, from a scourge of seagulls on the Jersey Coast, to the most recent shady move from a major food delivery service and more.Stories:Yelp Funneling Calls Through GrubhubBirds of Prey for HireMushroom In LawsNot-So-Biodegradable BowlsHosts:Amanda Kludt (@kludt), Editor in Chief, Eater Daniel Geneen (@danielgeneen), Producer, EaterMore to explore:Check out more great reporting from the Eater newsroom.Subscribe to Amanda’s weekly newsletter here.Follow Us:Eater.comFacebok.com/EaterYouTube.com/Eater@eater on Twitter and InstagramGet in Touch:digest@eater.comAbout Eater:Eater obsessively covers the world through the lens of food, telling stories via audio, television, digital video, and publications in 24 cities across the US and UK. Learn more about your ad choices.
