Rainbows every day, here on my first day at Sheraton Maui

Rainbows on my first day at Sheraton Maui

Aloha from Maui, where rainbows and fiery sunsets are fueling my work as I attend the Hawaii Food & Wine Festival.

From being on the judges committee for the first ever GGRA Saucy Awards (our 2016 restaurant and drink industry nominees just announced here with awards held at Herbst Theater in November), to blind judging spirits for the Good Food Awards (results and awards ceremony in January), it’s been another sweet, full month.

As national editor at Table8, here is our latest dining around the country, as well as all my latest on Bay Area newcomers and bests. At one of my regular outlets, Liquor.com, I cover the top 11 national cocktails now for October — in addition, my Liquor.com Drinkwire articles on bars & drink around the world.

This issue:

The Latest September’s Top 3 Openings: In SF, the three standout newcomers of the month, from an inventive, modern Japanese restaurant that could be one of the best openings of the year to a po boy neighborhood hangout with mint juleps on draft.
Wandering TravelerNew Orleans: My latest top 8 spots for dining and drink (plus a great food hall, dessert cafe and jazz brunch spot) in my beloved Nola.
