    Leaving the American Sector

    Walzwerk is a tiny establishment, tucked into the little space in which the exquisite Tandoor E Taj flourished so briefly. It's billed as an East German restaurant, and it is only somewhat far-fetched to claim that East Germany's 40 years of semi-iso...

    Mixed Greens

    You don't usually see come-ons as sleek and downtown as Nasturtium when you're out in the Richmond trolling for draft Guinness and piroshki. After all, its setting is a neighborhood of one-family delicatessens, two-screen movie theaters, and three-st...

    Down Among the Yuppies

    When I think of Cow Hollow I think of Bepple's Pies, primarily, and of Perry's and the neighborhood surplus of upwardly mobile single white professionals, and of a long-gone cafe on Buchanan where I had honest-to-God Key lime pie 12 long years ago. ...
