Her Bombolloni bring all the boys to the yard



We were saying a fond farewell to one of our fine interns last Friday, over a lovely little breakfast at Boulettes Larder. I swear, eating at that place is like being in a dream—everything is just so delicious and aesthetically pleasing. And there is something about having a proper breakfast like that, all hot cereal and pristine fruit, that makes you feel like you’ve done something good for yourself.

Just Say Yeah

New York-based rockers the Yeah Yeah Yeahs played to a sold-out crowd at the Fillmore on Tuesday, August 21. Singer/songwriter and former Brian Jonestown Massacre member Brian Glaze and guitarist Imaad Wasif opened the packed show.

Champagne and Spices



I went to a bizarre little Szechuan restaurant in the Richmond the other day called Spices II. It was bizarre, not because of the food—which was quite interesting and good—but because of the goofy sort of “Hello Kitty”/schoolgirl-motif interior, and the robot-like schoolgirls who waited on our table.


New Zuni Wine Director



I love Zuni Café and could happily eat there every day of my life—if someone wouldn’t mind subsidizing me.

With the golden light that reflects off the towering white walls and the white paper tablecloths, the ambiance inside is wonderful. Furthermore, the food is consistently very good. The worst I ever have is something that doesn’t make me say “wow,” or perhaps a slightly overcooked chicken. Usually, everything is delicious. While in the past there have been some service issues, in the last couple of years I’ve had nothing but exemplary, warm service.

Saving the World

What does sustainability mean to you?

That was the question posed to these panelists on Sunday morning at the Gastronomy by the Bay roundtable entitled Organic Farming and the Food Chain.

Rock the Bells After Party

No hip-hop show would be complete without a super stylish after party. For the Rock the Bells festival after party revelers danced and mingled at the latest night spot Temple, where special guests Mos Def, Questlove, and the Coup made cameo appearances.


Gastronomy by the Bay

I worked over Labor Day Weekend, but when work requires that one eat and drink and be merry, the line gets blurry.


Cooking demos outside the Ferry Building Marketplace

This weekend was the Gastronomy by the Bay event—the first international culinary event that brings together chefs and press from North America and Europe. I attended two of the three roundtables—one on sustainability, organic farming and the food chain and the other on gastronomic guides and the Internet.
