10 restaurant dishes to make at home

Momofuku pork buns? Yes, please.

One night, about a year after I had moved to New York, I was at a Mets Game. It wasn't terribly memorable, but I do remember that my date ordered chicken tenders; they were $11, and predictably not very good, but I immediately thought, "Damn, those are surprisingly cheap."

That was the moment that I realized that living in this city had permanently skewed my perceptions of what people should pay for food. Even though I'm incredibly frugal at the grocery store, I'm often lured into shelling out at every new restaurant that I have to try — and there is always another one.

Fortunately, working in food media means being surrounded by people creative and motivated enough to recreate some of the most acclaimed restaurants' recipes. I've pulled together a few of my favorites — you'll save money, won't have to wait for a table, and can eat them in the privacy of your home (no pants!). Here's how to live the dream:

Northern Spy's Kale Salad

Brussels Sprouts Salad a la M. Wells


Maialino's Olive Oil Cake

Celery Salad and Cheese on Toast (Inspired by Prune)
