Cartel's Grand Opening Party, Crack Pie and The Wafflizer in Today's Eater's Digest

An early morning serving of food news, with no preservatives or additives.

Tonight is the grand opening celebration of Cartel Coffee Lab's second shop located at 1 N. 1st Street in Downtown Phoenix. Head on down between 5 and 9 for free food, music and a raffle.

At Momofuku in New York, Christina Tosi and crew have people across the country hooked on crack pie.

At $44.00 a pie, that's a pretty pricey habit. (And no, there's not actually any cocaine in it -- though, hey, there's a trend just waiting to catch on....This stuff is just about as good for you, with lots of heavy cream, butter and brown sugar.) Can't justify spending $44.00 on a pie, you say? That's okay, here's the recipe!

Can it be made into a waffle?. That's exactly what Dan the "Wafflizer" is trying to figure out. Go check out his blog here.

Macarons are the new cupcake. Of course, we already knew that -- we have Essence Bakery -- but now NPR makes it official here.
