The endless river of restaurant openings rushes on. In addition to featured dissections of Nana, 33 Club, and The Red Canary in Food and Drink, check out the nine brand-new (and one fairly new) reviews in the listings.
I found the greenest combatant in the burger wars, The Bad Apple, no match for a seasoned vet, and finally got a grip on my infatuation with Zebda long enough to praise it with some coherence. Then I discovered that the natives in Edison Park apparently need a frog to signal that Cafe Touche is a decent French bistro, and that the kosher Morgan Harbor Grill is fairly adventurous for Devon Avenue (even if it sort of smells like somebody's grandma inside).
David Hammond exercised restraint at the "condimentarium" at Falafill, and took a a swim in the polyethnic koi pond at the latest Joy Yee.
Julia Thiel was grudgingly won over by the hyperhyped crust at Mod PIzza, and finally, both Castel Gandolfo and Kleo failed to move Kate Schmidt.
Next time: Xoco, Chilam Bilam, Mercadito, Rustico Grill, and a few non-Mexican restaurants too.
