Let's Be Frank

Do any of you ever suffer from meal regret? It happens to me all the time (a hazard of the job, I guess)—most frequently when I have a disappointing, though calorie-rich, meal then wish that I’d saved I hadn’t wasted 1/3 of a my daily allotment of food on something that wasn’t even that tasty. But occasionally, the meal regret occurs when I’ve already eaten a full meal of deliciousness, then see something else delicious that I wish I could try but am too full to consider.

Hangover Remedies

There is an excellent article on hangovers by Joan Acocella in the May 26 issue of The New Yorker. We all have our methods of getting over one. Greasy burgers or eggs. Milkshakes. Recently, pickle juice was recommended to me. Unfortunately, it didn't help me last weekend, when I was suffering.

Grappa at Bar 888



I'd been meaning to post on this for month's, but kept getting sidetracked until I was reminded of this by seeing Helen Roy's column in a recent Tablehopper. The wine, bar and beverage director for SoMa's new InterContinental Hotel, Roy (above) has turned its Bar 888 into a temple to one of her favorite substances: grappa.
