— Whataburger teamed up with Yeti to fashion orange-and-white branded tumblers resembling the fast-food chain’s drinking cups, which means it’ll last forever and drinks will stay very cold. The $45 tumbler is already sold out, but Whataburger will stock more soon.
— Breakfast tacos land in New York with new cart King David Tacos in Manhattan. Eater critic Robert Sietsema approved of its simple offerings, from bacon/potato/egg/cheese to chorizo/potato/egg/cheese, and a vegetarian option. He described the tacos:
“The eggs are fluffy, the potato cubes creamy, the cheese (a blend of jack and cheddar) cheesy, and the sausage and bacon relatively nondescript, but adding a nice touch of grease and salt.”
The cart is helmed by former Texan Liz Solomon who operated King David as a catering and delivery company initially. After Sietsema wrote about the cart, it sold out of tacos by 8:30 a.m. the next morning.
— Thrillist named its best new restaurants in the country, and Philip Speer’s French brasserie-American diner Bonhomie landed on the list. A video highlights the Allandale restaurant’s pommes rosti burger and banana split profiteroles.
