  1. The James Beard Foundation Is ‘Evaluating Its Policies’ In Light of Industry Harassment Reports, by Hillary Dixler Canavan, December 14, 2017, 7:45pm EST, on eater.com. Hmmm... maybe somebody is listening.
  2. Ken Friedman, Power Restaurateur, Is Accused of Sexual Harassment, by Julia Moskin and Kim Severson, December 12, 2017 on nytimes.com. Guest appearance by Mario Batali, aka the Red Menace. I wonder if the James Beard Foundation can revoke that award to Friedman for outstanding restaurateur of the year on the basis of after-acquired evidence? If the IOC can strip Olympic medals, I don't see why not. I consider doping a much lesser offense.
  3. ... and that's a wrap. Pancho Villa Mexican Cuisine Apparently Closed in Rosslyn, by Chris Teale December 11, 2017 at 11:00 am, on ARLnow.com.
  4. Fire Tragedies in the News

    To our members, friends, and families in the Los Angeles area - stay safe out there.
  5. Tail-On Shrimp

    That practice annoys me as well. It's like they are serving them to children and have to make them look cute. My position is that nothing should be added to a plate that is not edible and meant to be eaten as part of the meal. Paper hats are not edible. Therefore they should not be on my plate. Crawfish and shrimp boils are completely different matters. As is crab picking.
  6. Japan

    The Japanese Origins of Modern Fine Dining - How Japanese chefs and traditions have shaped global luxury cuisine for the past 50 years, by Meghan McCarron, September 7, 2017, on eater.com.
  7. dr.com Picnics - It Has Been a Long Time

    No worries. As you can see, my card expired 12/31/09. My status has been uncertain ever since. One false move and its curtains, I'm sure.
  8. What’s Behind The Subway Bread Smell? The fast food chain's bread smell, dissected, by Tom Roston, December 7, 2011, on foodrepublic.com.
  9. More bars are booting corporate beer from their taps and doubling down on craft, by Fritz Hahn, November 27, 2017, at 1:00 PM, on washingtonpost.com. Pizzeria Paradiso is among them.
  10. McDonald’s Seems Shocked That People Actually Want to Eat Its Chicken Tenders, by Clint Rainey, November 22, 2017 3:02 pm, on grubstreet.com.
  11. Couple that loves Olive Garden to name their daughter Olivia Garton, by Katie Kindelan, Nov 22, 2017, 3:13 PM ET, on abcnews.go.com. A dubious decision, perhaps. That said, I do not think there is anything wrong with naming your dog "Colonel Sanders."
  12. That looks nothing like the Bayside pizza (tomato, mozzarella, Sicilian oregano, basil) we had today. We also enjoyed the Egg Salad Crostino (housemade sourdough, whipped ricotta, prosciutto, capers, green salad) and Beet & Orange Salad (fried cheese, candy onion, radicchio, spinach, orange vinaigrette), either of which was ample enough to be a full meal by itself. The fried cheese seemed superfluous in the salad.
  13. Happy Thanksgiving 2017 to you and yours, everyone, however you choose to celebrate the day!
