I’LL HAVE WHAT SHE’S HAVING EDITING A MAGAZINE IS a lot like being a husband: You think you’re always right, but when you’re wrong, you often end up happier. My wife and I moved in together six years ago, and she immediately set out to remake what had been my apartment. The red “accent” wall I thought was so daring became chocolate brown—and, I have to admit, a lot smarter looking. The pair of electric guitars hanging in my (excuse me, our) living room? Yeah, those came down and up went art. Like, real art, with frames and stuff. What was a clichéd bachelor pad quickly matured into a home—a stylish and comfortable one. When it came to the kitchen, well, cooking was my domain. There might as well have been a “Private Property”…

The Kindest Cuts This summer, we’re bullish on big flavor, small-ticket steaks like flank, hanger, and skirt—and BA’s new grilling book (of course) If you’ve eyeballed the price of a rib eye lately, you’ll understand our obsession with the collection of affordable steaks known as butcher’s cuts (see right). These hunks of protein also boast a rich, beefy taste and a versatility that many pricier cuts just don’t have, standing up to bold marinades and herby sauces. For recipes using butcher’s cuts—and tons more information on everything from rubs to ribs to cocktails—check out our new tome, The Grilling Book: The Definitive Guide from Bon Appétit.

I wanted to bring Tully’s back to life. So you’re a coffee drinker? Yes. I do two or three cups in the morning and one or two in the afternoon, with almond milk or half-and-half. I want to become a certified barista and work in the stores. Five cups! Do you ever get any sleep? It doesn’t really affect me. Coffee is good for your mind—it’s basically a legalized drug. The next step is selling marijuana, of course. Would…
