Despite the abysmal weather, I packed in over 25 restaurants and bars this week, gaining some new all-time favorites in a city I’ve scoured over the years (past recommends here).

Lately at, I feature pro tips on drinking gin and the top new drinks at bars around the country for May.

Here are new features in my regular outlets: Table8,, Drinkwire articles on bars & drink around the world, Food Republic and Where Magazine.
