Drinking bourbon. Playing gin. Enjoying a Manhattan, perfectly crafted by one @jarcardoza, in preparation for a Sunday card throwdown.
Tiki heaven at @freehandmiami.
Mom's version of salade niçoise on the fly.
Another bite from last night that I can't. Stop. Thinking. About. @juni_sf
I've opted into a career that ensures that I eat very well, very often. With gratitude, I admit that there are many bites that are exceptional, but don't have staying power. Tonight, @juni_sf offered a menu that I won't soon forget. Every bite was perfect. Divine. Familiar, but novel and aggressively balanced.
Without a doubt, the coolest club I've ever been a member of. Get your passport to flavortown (hoodie optional, but recommended) from @lacocinasf.
@healdsburgshed is a tangible expression of my dreams.
Nothing like spinning meats and fatty drippings on a Saturday morning 🤤
I've been a bit hush hush about the specifics of my work with @crateandbarrel, but am *thrilled* to share one element of it today -- the launch of Crate Party. Beautiful, easy to execute menus designed for those who love to host the most stunning of soirées. Check out the details through the link in my profile. #crateandbarrel #cratestyle #crateparty
Last night, I had the privilege of sharing nuggets of restaurant opening wisdom with the women of the @proofcollective alongside some fiercely talented panelists. Woke up feeling inspired by the work of @sobremesasf, @pilotlightconsulting, and @missioncheese and the dreams of the ladies who came out to listen to us.
Back in the saddle @ramenshopoakland. Meyer lemon shoyu with purple carrots, broccoli di ciccio, celery root, mizuna, and a mess of mushrooms.
The coldest winter I ever spent was spring in Minnesota.
Loaves on loaves @bellecourmn. The 🐔is a pretty soigné touch. (📸donated by @gavinkaysen)
A grand plateau to kick off a grand opening at @bellecourmn. 🎊🎉🍾
Book by book, spice by spice. It's all happening @bellecourmn.
New restaurant bling courtesy of @allclad at @bellecourmn.
A 50'+ table made from the trunk of one singular tree. Beauty at @crateandbarrel HQ.
Julia Child asked, "How can a nation be called great if it's bread tastes like Kleenex?" It can't. @tartinemanufactory for President.
Creamy potato, miso, and pork ramen at @ramenshopoakland. Can't get my mind off of it.
