Movie Pairing: Analyze This (Prime)
“I recently watched Analyze This, and then watched Analyze That the very next night. Usually, I might take a look in the mirror after devoting four hours in a short timespan to softcore mafia movies starring Lisa Kudrow and a character named Jelly. But I don’t regret a second of it. Well, I regret almost all of Analyze That, but the first one was more than good enough to make up for it - namely because watching Billy Crystal psychoanalyze Robert De Niro is extremely entertaining. It’d be easy to pair this with a red sauce and cheese-heavy spot from our Italian Delivery Guide, but instead, embrace the theme of the movie by trying to better yourself. Specifically, by gettting help in the kitchen from Bessou, a Noho Japanese spot that delivers ready-to-cook comfort food with all the prep work done for you, so you can get the satisfaction of cooking karaage chicken or pork tonkatsu yourself.” -MT
Bessou understands that good comfort food isn’t the easiest to make, and does a lot of the prep work for you. For example, they season, marinate, and fry karaage chicken, so when the meal kit is delivered to you, you just need to bake or fry it one more time before it’s ready. This Noho Japanese spot also marinates ready-to-cook hangar steak and whole chickens, batters and breads tonkotsu cutlets, and offers shabu shabu kits with all of the ingredients portioned out.
Although they aren’t open for regular takeout and delivery, Bessou in Noho has free and reduced-price meals available for schoolchildren, the homeless, and anyone who needs it. You can see more information about World Central Kitchen’s New York City Initiatives by looking on their map here.
