Meat is Hot!

Friday, January 6th, 2012

We tweeted a while ago about the fact that butcheries are hot. In fact they are so hot that they are receiving stacks of attention and serious makeovers the world over.

We are unashamedly unabashedly in love!

The Bollinger Exceptional Wine Service Award

A Wealth of Health

Monday, January 2nd, 2012

While overseas we noticed more and more restaurants offering healthy menu alternatives for their under-12 patrons. Picture tasty dishes sans the moment-on-the-lips-lifetime-on-the-hips deep-frying.

It’s great to see restaurants committing to balanced, nutritious and inventive kids menus instead of falling into the twice-fried chicken nugget and french fry rut.

There may be hope for us restaurateurs yet.
