posto 4

Review: Posto

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),

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.

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.

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
