    • le verre volé sur mer, 75010

      The stakes are high in Paris when an established, beloved restaurant like cave-à-manger pioneer Le Verre Volé opens a seafood sequel, in this case the drily-dubbed Le Verre Volé Sur Mer. Not because Parisians are discerning about seafood. Quite the opposite! Seafood sequels in Paris must be convincing because when they are not, a curtain drops, and we risk recalling, as quiveri ...

  • Voyage Kitchen

    … 128 West Coast Drive, though from the two mirrored rooms it's difficult to see the ocean, you certainly won't see the front end loader moving up and down the beach smoothing out the sand. . . This is a place that is beautifully self contained and seemingly complete. A central corridor divides the space, to the left the newer room which looks more…

  • The Great San Francisco Mac and Cheese Throwdown

    … When four, count ‘em four, friends contacted me this week to make sure I was aware of this event, I realized I’d made a bit of a mac-and-cheese-tasting reputation for myself. This throwdown comes your way through the combined efforts of the SoMa StrEat Food Park and FunCheapSF, both great organizations with a goal of keeping Bay Area residents…

  • Nine fine food

    … I like almost everything about the Nine fine food dining room, except of course the back wall (unseen and to the right of this photo) which is part covered by wall paper so it looks superficially like granite blocks. The other portion of the wall features chalk boards mentioning they are available for functions. It would be much better…

  • Le Vietnam

    … Tiny and charming Le Vietnam can be found at the bottom of the Bon Marche building on Barrack Street. It's a curious thing, but since its arrival, the Perth CBD is now sandwiched by Vietnamese funkiness and energy. Slightly older and larger Mama Tran is the other side of the bun, situated on Milligan street. The pictured Bahn Mi (original…

  • Breakfast at the Merrywell

    … Mrs Crunchy on a stick with a pair of eggs for $15. Cute and effective, the bread is a little sweet, but I'm not complaining. In the background and very truncated is the New York egg sandwich (the egg was not runny and it felt dry in the mouth) which comes with an addictive serve of tater tots (grated, fried and heavily salted potato balls…

  • Customer service PR lessons; the good, bad, and the ugly ~ Part 1

    …, a franchise location. Menu and decor was created by my wine/chef pal Mark Miller of Coyote Cafe in Santa Fe, New Mexico. A lover of Asian culture and food, Mark has done a great job. As usual, we all loved the food. But, it was all about their approach to PR that really made this restaurant the BEST on our list. Nate is like me; he has a super…

  • Friday Favorites – Fall Drinks Week ends as Sicily travel begins

    … berry aromas that paired well with the sweet sauce and spicy pork. Though the alcohol is fairly high (at 15%) it is a very balanced Zinfandel (not intense or over the top) that would pair with a wide variety of fare including barbecue ribs, pizza, burgers, or even winter stews. Find it here. Speaking of Zinfandel, when most people think…

  • Dinner at 1884 Francis Mallmann, Mendoza

    … On my last night in Mendoza I dined alone. It’s something I rarely do on my travels: often I’ll use a free evening as a chance to skip a meal and try to avoid becoming fat, but my hosts had kindly booked me a table at 1884 Restaurante Francis Mallmann, one of Mendoza’s most highly regarded restaurants. It was also was within 50 yards of where I…

  • New to Leederville

    … Hylin is hard up against the western edge of Leederville on a grassy corner of Railway parade. Presumably (though I'm often mistaken) the name is a play on New York's High Line (the elevated park built on an abandoned freight track in Chelsea Village), how else to account for the all the bagels and cronuts? The space is beautiful, lovely natural…

  • La Cale style Mussels in Cider from Renee Erickson 'A Boat, a Whale & a Walrus'

    … Cotentin Peninsula, there’s a quirky little restaurant called La Cale, whose official street address is “La Plage,” or, simply, “the beach.” It overlooks the tidal flats that stretch five kilometers into the sea—an area that accounts for more than 10 percent of France’s oyster production—but at high tide, when all traces of aquaculture disappear…
