    Unalloyed Pleasure - Gary Danko

    The Man Who Came to Dinner - Tiki News

    Ah, the American dream. Here at the turn of the millennium, our collective goal of a chicken in every pot and a white picket fence has evolved into pre-IPO options and a comparatively less corrupt lawyer. It seems nine out of 10 American workers now ...

    On the Right Track - Red Herring Restaurant and Bait Bar

    After five years in San Francisco, my friend Dana is leaving -- a sad thing, for sure, but there it is. You could say our paths crossed a few times during that period: I was the first person she laid eyes on the night she arrived in the city (she w...

    The Swedish Chef - Abbsolutly

    For all its exalted status as the only Swedish restaurant in San Francisco, Abbsolutly is pretty low-key. Until you look at the menu, it passes completely for just another bar -- albeit a fairly handsome one -- on the bleak motel strip of Lombard...

    Champion of Breakfasts

    Did you see Ric Burns' documentary on New York a couple of weeks ago on PBS? It had a nice way of serving up basic yet little-known facts about its subject's history with a storyteller's sense of rhythm so that facts became episodes and episodes beca...

    The Debauching of K

    Despite our jaded age, I've always believed in the sanctity of weddings, those special occasions when two souls declare a love unrelenting and ask the heavens to smile down upon their union. I mean, it may only be a piece of paper (albeit a legally b...

    Side Dish - Hang the DJ, Eat It and Beat It, and A Toast

    The last of the turkey is gone from the fridge. The Beaujolais Nouveau has been slurped down. The extra cans of pumpkin filling have been hidden on the back shelf until next year. And we were thankful for the chance to stretch out our stomachs in p...

    The Man Who Came to Dinner - Environmental Eating Action Team

    Here's Looking at You

    One of my more oblique hobbies is collecting bartender's guides, the more arcane the better. Bar guides reflect their time and place as subtly and as knowingly as a vintage kinescope or a trashy paperback. The prize of my collection is Bernard De V...

    Fine Wining

    When you pass First Crush, or if you idly wander in, the first thing you notice is the lavish street-level wine bar, packed with bons vivants holding vividly colored glasses aloft. There is also a stairway leading downstairs. To the restrooms, you wo...

    Dinner (or Not) and a Show

    My first exposure to jazz was in the form of a Fats Waller record titled Don't Let It Bother You. I was 10 years old, on the brink of God knew what, and the titular sentiment was deeply reassuring. Music had tantalized my eardrums in the past, but th...
