NYC's best new burger comes to us via Chicago in the form of a double-patty topped with extra thick-cut bacon and a fried egg. FR's @themostcuriousgeorge thinks restaurateur Brendan Sodikoff's first city spot will be one of the hottest tables of 2017. Incredible meal here. #fravorites

You've heard plenty about the ongoing poke craze but have you ever seen an overstuffed unagi (freshwater eel) poke bowl topped with ikura (salmon roe), scallions and nori? This was @themostcuriousgeorge's lunch from new NoMad spot @mauionionnewyork. #fravorites

Our obsession with hot chicken extended to D.C. this weekend at @crispkitchenbar. It's offered in three levels of heat (hot, very hot and chef's hot), so naturally we opted for a specially requested, off-the-menu "chef's extra hot," ghost peppers included. Delightfully crispy and juicy with absolute scorching heat. Burned so good. #fravorites

Four months of drying and our Fiocco is ready. Think tiny prosciutto meats rose water and pink peppercorns. It tastes like your mouth is on a magic carpet right through salty umami clouds 🌹🐷⛅👅 #FRTakeover #charcuterie #curedmeat

The prettiest of all cured meats 💁 Hibiscus cured lardo @gwenla That’s pure pork fat back cured for two weeks and then coated in a layer of dried hibiscus powder before hanging to try for several months 🌺🐷🌺 #FRTakeover #charcuterie #butchershop

Back in the dry cure room @gwenla This side houses all of our whole muscle cures. Culatello, fiocco, prosciutto, coppa, lardo, bresaola, speck….. Just to name a few. After we salt cure the raw cuts, they hang here for months, sometimes years to dry to perfection 📆📆📆 #FRTakeover #charcuterie #curedmeat

FR's @themostcuriousgeorge visited D.C. this weekend and was convinced that taking down this half-smoke and chili-cheese fries late-night at city institution @benseverything was a good idea. It was - at the time - though his stomach disagreed mightily the next morning. #fravorites

The king of salamis 👑 This is our @blackmorewagyu beef salami fermenting before drying for the next several months. Just a little salt and black pepper to showcase the amazing flavor and texture of this amazing wagyu from Australia #FRTakeover #salamisunday #

Salami Cotto for dayyyyys. This style of salami is fermented and then cooked to create a product similar to mortadella or bologna in texture. We fold pistachios, chunks of back fat, wine-soaked peppercorns and diced pancetta into our cotto to make it #soigne @gwenla #salamisunday #charcuterie #FRTakeover

Charcuterie dojo master @justinseverino and his sidekick @randylaca getting down to business cutting the sirloins off these hams for our blackstrap ham. First we’ll cure with salt, brown sugar, molasses and rum before we age and smoke these beauties to salty perfection 👌 #FRTakeover

We’ve broken the hams and shoulders off our hogs and now it’s time to butcher each piece down into smaller cuts to cure. We’ll be making coppa, fiocco, lardo, blackstrap ham and a variety of salamis. 🔪🔪🔪 #FRTakeover @gwenla

Fresh pig delivery!!! 🚚🐷The first step to great charcuterie is high quality meat. That’s why we bring in whole sides of heritage breed pork. Justin is as happy as an angel in heaven 👼 #FRTakeover
