Senior editor Schuyler Bailey, who mows her way around town for the sake of the Eat + Drink section, is hungry. Here's what she's hankering for this month.

1. Rip van Wafel's Caramel-Filled Cookie

My morning coffee is made better with a Rip van Wafels topper: a caramel-filled cookie that gets warm and oozy as your cup cools. Available at Bi-Rite Market.

2. Smoked Salmon Benedict at Park Tavern

The smoked salmon Benedict at Park Tavern’s brunch makes my weekend, with toasty country bread, generous layers of salmon, and a perfectly poached egg.

3. Duck Pâté and Mousse at Stones Throw 

The duck pâté and mousse, topped with cornichon ribbons and served with a warm Firebrand pretzel at Stones Throw, is irresistible. 

4. The Roger Rabbit at Alta CA

Alta CA bar manager Ashley Miller serves cocktails that are complex and delicious. The Roger Rabbit, a carrot-infused take on a Moscow Mule, is just one example. 

5. Truffles at Gâté Comme des Filles

At Gâté Comme des Filles, Berkeley-based chocolatier Alexandra Whisnant creates truffles with a shelf life of five days. But just try to make whatever she’s offering this week last five seconds.
