Review: Federal Hill Pizza
No, Federal Hill Pizza was not driven into Warren exile by the envy of its Italian restaurant competitors on Providence's Federal Hill.
It’s in Warren. Go!

Where to go with what's in your pocket (or couch, or car)
After about two weeks of being back in school and eating every meal — day after day after day — in the cafeteria, it's going to start sucking. It's actually written in the student handbook.

Review: Robinwood Café & Grille
The diner — that hallowed bastion of old-time Americana, the predecessor to modern fast-food joints — is simply not one of our long suits. In this relatively weak field, Robinwood Café & Grille, a Jamaica Plain diner, executes solidly on the standby
Executing solidly in the classic New England Greek-American diner tradition

Review: Think Tank Bistrotheque
The owners have some very good ideas about food and drink — Southeast Asian treats are cool, and craft cocktails go better with them than wine does — but they have also produced some decisions that make the rest of us scratch our heads.

Review: Red Lantern
Red Lantern's menu (and the design of the giant room) hedges its bets — there's a decent sushi bar, a drinking bar with sports on the TVs, a flurry of hot-pot tables, and some serious steaks.
Nostalgic fusion with so much for so many

Some places, no matter how good, manage to fly under the radar. And the recent trend of restaurateurs opening a pizza place, establishing a reputation as a lower-priced, "On the Cheap" joint, and then upscaling into a full-tilt sit-down spot (see: Nebo),
Top-notch Italian that's under the radar no more

Review: Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House
The good news — especially if someone else is paying — is that everything at Del Frisco's is pretty good, the view is incredible, and the service is relaxed.
A waterfrom steakhouse worth the price

Review: Annabelle's Restaurant
Hyde Park is the kind of neighborhood where the idea of a Dorchester businessman coming in to set up a restaurant is big stuff.

Review: Hot Suppa
When you sit down in one of the comfortable booths for the new dinner service at Hot Suppa, it is hard to remember the many years when Hot Suppa was closed in the evenings.

Sparkle on Valentine’s Day
There are three basic Valentine's Day tactics: You can forget it and be forced to sleep outside with the large furry dog. Second, you can go out to dinner. Or, you can cook dinner in with a bottle of bubbly accompaniment.

The brunch quandary
There seems to be an endless number of places to try in Portland. So many, in fact, that I keep discovering well-established restaurants that I didn't even know served brunch. One of those places was Vignola.

A haute time
My introduction to the concept that a bottle of wine must breathe did not go well. I was already in a state from drinking nonvintage stuff when I arrived at the small dinner party. Then, the hostess announced she would let the bottle breathe and placed
