La Quercia Italian Restaurant

Posted on July 18th, 2012

I have been trying, not too hard to be honest, to get to La Quercia since it opened a couple of years ago. I called a few times and could never seem to get a reservation. When I finally made it there last week, I realized it’s because the place is tiny and it saves … (More →)


Anthony Bourdain on the Munchies in NYC

Posted on July 12th, 2012

With the line between editorial and PR becoming ever more blurred, who can you trust for some decent restaurant recommendations when travelling, especially to a city as overwhelming as New York? Thank goodness Anthony Bourdain continues to be as foul-mouthed and unpolished as ever, with an honesty verging on turrets. He travels around the world, … (More →)


Il Caminetto di Umberto

Posted on July 9th, 2012

Whistler is a mecca of astonishingly expensive meals, a place where mediocre pub food will set you back $50.

Umberto Menghi is well … (More →)


Shanghai River Restaurant, Richmond

Posted on June 30th, 2012

My obsession with the good eats in Richmond shows no sign of abating and my latest discovery is the Shanghai River Restaurant.

Run by Bruce Seidel, formerly of the Food Network and Cooking Channel, it promises much more flexibility with format and content and lots of programming in the one to three minute range – … (More →)


Kenny and Zuke’s Delicatessen, Portland

Posted on June 17th, 2012

Portland is just a 6 hour drive from Vancouver, provided the border is not a huge hassle, so it’s the perfect place for a long weekend mini-break – and I’ve been taking advantage often this year. After Brooklyn, I’m pretty sure it’s the hipster mecca of America, with more ironic glasses, beards, pageboy caps and … (More →)


Anthony Bourdain’s Brooklyn

Posted on June 15th, 2012

Anthony Bourdain recently filmed his final episode of No Reservations ending his reign on the Travel Channel. He’s preparing to launch his new show on CNN in early 2013 that “will be shot on location and examine cultures from around the world through their food and dining and travel rituals.” For his grand finale, he … (More →)
