It may not be his most famous quote, but I'll always remember Albert Einstein for (supposedly) saying: "The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources." It's as true in the kitchen as it is anywhere else, however sometimes it's easier to spot a kitchen carbon copy than others. Eater has assembled a thorough list, including their research & speculation on the origin of each dish. Check out the rest of the details on Eater.com
Kicking the list off are #10 Chicken Lollipops & #9 'Devils on Horseback,' or bacon-wrapped prunes for the rest of us not in NYC.
#8 Meatball Sliders & #7 The Pickleback, a bizarre drink experience that starts off with a shot of booze and ends with a chaser of artisanal pickle juice (might actually end with something worse…)
#6 Miso Cod
#5 Lamb Ribs, check out the District's own recipe here
#4 Watermelon & Goat Cheese Salad
#3 Bone Marrow with Onion Marmalade
#2 Grilled Shishito Peppers-these have been around awhile…I remember picking these up off the grill at Gramercy Tavern for a simple side dish more than four years ago.
#1 Pork Buns. Can't argue with this one.
