Isa – Bklyn

I think you’ve gotta love a place that has a colorful, stitched together, hand-crocheted caftan weather curtain to greet you upon entering from the chilly out of doors. Even if that’s not your thing, I can just about guarantee the food at Isa will be — the interior too, with spectacular wood working by Taavo […]

NY Feast

It’s been much too long, I know. I’m back and full of inspiration (and countless calories) from the phenomenal food I’ve been relishing at these incredible venues. In 2012, it’s going to be more photos, fewer words — cuz really, that’s what you want. Right? Okay. You ready? Let’s go! Boulud Sud, across from Lincoln […]

Eat+Drink+Bid for Good

This past year I started a non-profit project to build a pre-school and elementary school in a rural village where I lived and worked Mali, West Africa as a Peace Corps volunteer. To say it’s been been a crazy year, running a non-profit in my ‘free’ time, feels like a bit of an understatement. But […]

yam’Tcha Paris

Last week I had the great fortune to dine at yam’Tcha in Paris, a hidden treasure, tucked away on a tiny side street between Les Halles and the Louvre . I silently thank my gracious [and persuasive] Parisian friend daily for getting us a table on a cancellation. Not only did we get in to […]

Brassica Napa Valley

Lucky me, I was invited this past week to the friends and family tasting at Cindy Pawlcyn’s new restaurant Brassica in St. Helena. It’s in the former ‘Go Fish’ location, with a little bit of interior restyling and the same wonderful outdoor patio for those fabulously warm days and balmy nights in the Napa Valley. […]

Dogpatch Days of Summer

There’s so much exciting change afoot in Dogpatch lately, with even more to come. There’s a fantastic new wine shop called Dig, which is just next to the new Piccino location [well, there’s actually a new MAC (Modern Appealing Clothing) shop separating the two….details, details]. I do love our local wines, but sometimes I crave […]

Sage Provisions

Have you ever found yourself near the junction of Arnold Drive and Carneros Hwy, on the border of Sonoma and Napa valleys, unable to make a decision which wines to explore cuz your belly is rumbling? Next time, you just might want to stop in to grab a bite at Sage Fine Food & Provisions […]

Nojo to Table

There’s a new little taste of Japan in SF called Nojo. Nojo means ‘farm’ in Japanese, so you’ll find farm to table fare served yakitori and izakaya style — and a list of the nojos supplying the goods on the daily menu. For chef/owner Greg Dunmore [former Exec Chef of Ame], the deciding inspiration for […]

Grazing in Madison

I ventured to Madison, Wisconsin recently for a friend’s wedding and I honestly had no idea what to expect on the food scene. I did know there was a James Beard Best Chef nominee this year, but other than that, clueless. I quickly learned that not only is Madison home to the country’s largest producer-only […]

Forage SLC

I had no idea what a treat I was in for when I booked my birthday dinner at Forage in Salt Lake City, UT. It was to be a great weekend of skiing with friends from NY and took a little turn for the unexpected on my first run. When we arrived at this charming […]
