Places I’ve eaten, things I’ve tasted.

41° Experience

41. The thought of eating 41 dishes is at once exciting and daunting. In framing it as 41 bites of food, the notion of it becomes something more manageable. However, it was not the quantity that concerned, but the ability… Continue Reading →

Bero’s Beautiful

I first encountered Matt Kantor and his cooking at the Australia Day dinner a couple years back. Well known for his Secret Pickle dinners and events about town, when I had heard that Kantor was on the hunt for a space, I kept… Continue Reading →

Santouka Ramen

Santouka opened with a lot of anticipation, and even a few days in to their soft opening, the lines were stretching out the door. To this day, waits are around 30 minutes or more. Despite the cold weather, many still… Continue Reading →
