Dear Friends ~
Just returning from an epic week in Seoul, S. Korea, and a gala few days of events with Taste of Seoul, awarding the top 100 restaurants and bars in Seoul, I relish October home in San Francisco before I head to my beloved New Orleans (again) over Halloween week (More to come on Nola and Korea in future articles). In SF, I anticipate an upcoming weekend on the coast with my long beloved Highland Park Scotch, SF Restaurant Week (October 21-30) and Whiskyfest SF October 28 at the Marriott Marquis with seminars, distillers and hundreds of whiskies from around the globe to freely taste (hope to see you there; tickets here).
In addition to my regular articles at The Bold Italic, my weekly dining column reviews one restaurant each week. I welcome those interested to follow me, or even sign up for a membership for my articles at Medium, which partially goes to support us as writers. Follow or support here. I thank you.
Per usual, I’m posting my daily research in dining and drink at @ThePerfectSpot on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram.
