chinese bistro, seven stars

Review: Seven Star Street Bistro

The trick to loving Seven Star Street Bistro is to forget how enticingly they've managed to remodel such a tiny sliver of space, and to take their name literally.

Southwestern lunch food at Bella Drew's

Review: Bella Drew's

Bella Drew's, a new luncheonette, serves what it calls Southwestern-style cuisine, a regionalism expressed mostly by liberal applications of avocado.

So you think you can foufou?

African foufou is not something you learn once and get. I've had three different teachers, Kenyan, Congolese, and Ghanaian, and I can "do" it, but I still look like one those unbelievably bad dancers on So You Think You Can Dance?
