Review: Ed’s Roost
When local East Greenwichers fly the coop in the early morn, they often land at Ed's Roost, with all the other hungry chickens . . . er, customers. I might be forgiven the slip since the chicken — or more specifically, rooster theme — is so prevalent at

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: 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.

Review: Jasmine Taste of Persia

Review: Tamarind House
Tamarind House perhaps shows too restrained a hand with its cuisine's boldest flavors, but it's a useful step up from the bowdlerized meekness of the suburban Thai run-of-the-mill.

Review: Lorenz Island Kuisine
When I find a family-run place that seems to serve as an anchor for neighborhood life — serving three meals a day, doing a brisk takeout business, offering live music, DJs, and poetry readings a few nights a month — I think, "Damn, wish my neighborhood

Meet your meat
Opening the door to a large walk-in cooler and seeing a massive cow carcass hanging from a metal hook is a slightly jolting reminder that meat doesn't just appear in neat little packages in the grocery store.

Staying 'classy' over food
As many problems as there are in society over racial and ethnic hang-ups, I've long maintained that the bigger separator of people in this country (and probably most nations) is socioeconomic class.

Eat, buy, love: A mini Going Green gift guide.
As I write this, I'm slurping down a soup made of roasted broccoli, celery root, garlic, and broth. I'd never cooked with celery root before, but I had to learn fast — the ugly-but-tasty vegetable was included in the first box of winter farm-share produ

Review: Local Sprouts Cafe
The responsibilities of individualism are hard to bear. We must compete in a system in which we can sense the rules are fixed — succeeding or failing alone, moving up the ladder or onto unemployment.

Red Lentil Vegetarian and Vegan Restaurant
By now everyone knows Red Lentil is dog-plays-the-piano good. It’s the best all-vegetarian and lots-vegan restaurant Boston has ever had. The question before us is: is it actually good -good?
