    Matzoh Soup at Rustika Cafe and Bakery

    I'd had it on good authority that Rustika is a good stop for Jewish specialties, sometimes with a Mexican twist. While I wasn't expecting any chiles in my matzoh soup, I was certainly expecting a capable version of this most comforting of comfort dis...

    Bartender Chat: J. Hal Brock of Hearsay Gastro Lounge

    Not like "hall," but like the name "Hal" or "Al." Honestly, after taking a few sips of this zesty, yet refreshing, cocktail while chatting with Hal at Hearsay Gastro Lounge, I couldn't care less what it's called. I just wanted another. The "Hal"...

    Shiftwork Bites: Paneer

    Since I'm pretty committed to this project, I've made a habit of doing what I can to up the ante a bit. I might make stock the day before, for homemade (should that be office-made?) turkey and bacon gravy on Thanksgiving, or perhaps I'll shave an ent...

    Odd Pair: Taco Cabana's Shrimp Tampico Quesadilla & Pinot Gris

    It's embarrassing, ridiculous and, sadly true. Though I'd tried all week to fight the urge and seek out healthier food offerings, I found myself succumbing to the bright-pink drive-thru after a particularly rough day that left me wanting something...

    For Richer or Poorer - The po-boys at Zimm's Little Deck come up short.

    There are many things to love about Zimm's Little Deck. Oddly -- for a Cajun restaurant with an executive chef from Louisiana -- the po-boys aren't one of them. Perhaps the fact that Zimm's employs an executive chef who's rarely seen on premises i...

    Comment of the Day

    I swear by those Lankford burgers. They're the best hangover cure I've found yet. I remember one morning, after a Friday night of way too much beer & tequila, I was seriously hurting. Had Edie whip me up a double that had me back in top form by the l...

    Brew Blog: St. Arnold Spring Bock

    Actually, that's not an entirely unfounded fear, as the predominance of malts in Bock-style beers does tend to lead them down that path. It is, of course, possible to flirt with the notion of sweetness without succumbing to it, and St. Arnold Spring ...

    Hot Geisha Maki Roll at Miyako
