        From time to time I will post roundups or lists of my favorites restaurants, food shops or dishes. I'll tell you where I really go. What's worth a splurge. Where you'll find chefs late at night. Breakfast Priorities. Favorite haunts of other food writer friends. Ice cream Worth the Detour. Watch for more.

    My Highs of 2012

    Loveable Italians
    Dinner at an Italian restaurant can be like going home, a childhood revisited, or new worlds encountered (Italian getting lost between France and El Bulli). This city is richly served in Italian. Modest and unassuming. Fiercely regional. Authentic and understated. Down-home family dives and romantic cubbies. Upscale ambitious fusion. So many choices. Of all the Italians I have loved over the years – these are the places I go to right now.
