Mais Oui: The French Invasion

An article that ran yesterday in the New York Times about the resurgence of French food in New York City struck a chord with me. For all of San Francisco’s Italianate leanings, the same seems to be true here—all of a sudden, the “French culinary mafia” seems once again to be picking up speed. The other night I ate at Chez Papa Resto, where my old friend David Bazirgan is the chef. David is supremely talented, and I’ll happily patronize any restaurant where he’s cooking. The food–lovely renditions of French classics given the Baz touch—seems anything but tired.

Java Sleeves Go Green



If you're getting your java in a to-go cup, we implore you to at least forgo the sleeve! Mildly superfluous, don't you think? But if it's too hot to handle, why not cozy up with one of these chic, reusable coffee sleeves conceived by artist, Michelle Czulada. Hand sewn from repurposed fabrics, they are eco-friendly themselves and serve an eco-friendly purpose. Washable and one-size-fits-all. We'll drink to that!
