“Pleasure without Champagne is purely artificial.” — Oscar Wilde

Just back from a hot  but wonderful week of plays, friends, colleagues & (of course) tons of food and drink research in my youthful stomping grounds of NYC, next weekend I judge an abalone cooking competition right of the breathtaking, cliffy shores of Mendocino at Little River Inn.

Alongside the print issue of Time Out Magazine, in my Time Out column, my hit list for the week includes a killer stonepot okonomiyaki, a crudo classic, Asian-influenced cocktails in Oakland, and a new menu of breakfast sandwiches, all here. I also cover Napa newcomers: two standout new St. Helena restaurants and a new chef from Rome in Calistoga here.

At Liquor.com, I talk about the 11 new top Bay Area bars and my top 11 cocktails/bars around the US for the month of October.
