Best Appetizers

Chef Sam DeMarco put small food on the map before the tapas craze ever crossed the Atlantic. First Food & Bar is a showcase for his appetizer genius. A few to try: authentic lollipop Buffalo wings that literally fall off the bone, gooey Philadelphia cheesesteak potstickers, his barbecued roast-pork egg rolls surrounded by a moat of cheesy grits, and the best goat-cheese soufflé ever, with a pistachio crust and brandied cherries.
