My food views… Major kudos to chef Brian Kearns and his team over at Arthur’s Steakhouse for hosting our 4-course, wine cellar dinner last night.

My weekly views… Major props to my buddy who suggested a group of us try out Sakura Japanese Restaurant up in Sherwood. The sushi rolls proved to be a hit and an excellent value. Three rolls (six pieces each) cost $14–a pretty damn good deal for tasty eel, spicy scallops …




My weekly views… Guess what? My kids better get used to eating more Indian food from here on out, because daddy needs himself some samosas at least once a month. And what better place to get them than at Star of India? Their version, albeit greasy, yet undeniably good, is …
