Today on The Daily Dish: Michelin announces its stars, stopping hunger one slice at a time, a tricky pizza order, and Germany goes green.
Welcome to The Daily Meal’s Daily Dish, where we highlight what’s hot and trending in the world of all things food and drink.
Today’s first course?
Michelin released its 11th annual guide to New York City restaurants, featuring 76 restaurants with one, two, or three stars, and 11 new restaurants. The big news? Danny Meyer's The Modern was bumped up to two stars.
New York City’s most important pizza party is on October 7. Since 2009, the annual event has raised over $70,000 for hunger relief. Admission is free, but you need to buy $1 tickets for every slice you want to eat. Each ticket provides 20 meals to a fellow New Yorker in need.
Speaking of pizza… Earlier this year, an Indiana pizzeria made news for saying it would refuse to cater gay weddings, their claim inspired by an act allowing people to refuse to do business that interferes with their religious beliefs. Well, Memories Pizza unknowingly catered the wedding of one gay couple. To pull off the stunt, which they put on camera, Robin Trevino and his husband just called and ordered a few pies.
Think you’re being environmentally savvy by bringing tote bags to the supermarket?Well, this grocery store in Berlin does you one better. Original Unverpackt calls itself the world’s first zero-waste grocery. There are no bags, packaging, or plastic of any kind. Instead, its products (even shampoo) are distributed loose to customers, who bring reusable containers with them.
And that’s today's Daily Dish. Thanks for watching. Stop by tomorrow for another helping.
