The wine lineup at Tribeca Grill

Monday night brought us to . . . → Read More: Wine Dinners: Tribeca Grill and Maloney and Porcelli

Diamond in the Dark: Blind Tasting the Wines of Francis Ford Coppola

Social Eating. It’s Good For You. (Sort of.)

YUM.

Several months ago, I had a conversation with my mother-in-law about social eating, getting older, and how more elderly people benefit from eating with friends. (The actual conversation was a bit longer than that…) It made me realize how much more I eat when I am with friends, which is most of the . . . → Read More: Social Eating. It’s Good For You.

Wine-O at La Concha Key West

Downstairs in the La Concha hotel, facing Duval Street, sits Wine-O, a new wine bar/retail shop. I was invited to check it out, and since I never turn down wine, off we went. I am always eager to check out new places, especially if there is food and wine involved.
