editor’s letter

THAT ’ 70S CHOW I DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU, but when I was a kid in Washington, DC, going out to dinner was a big deal. Onee a month or so, my parents would pile my brother, my sister, and me into our banged-up, coffee-colored Dodge wagon and we’d truck off to a spot like Bish Thompson’s in Bethesda, Maryland, This was one of those nautical-the med seafood restaurants with captain’s wheels on the wall, netting on the ceiling, glowing fish tanks in the dining room, and mints at the door. It was like having dinner at an amusement park. Same with Yenching Palace in Washington’s Cleveland Park, with its neon-lit Chinatown-style facade, radioactive-red Shirley Temples, and crisp, golden shrimp toast. On a couple of occasions, my dad took me to Sir Walter…

ICEBERG AHEAD! In a world now ruled by kale salad, the iceberg wedge should be obsolete. Fortunately, this hunk of supercrisp iceberg lettuce cloaked in tangy blue-cheese dressing and topped with everything from bacon to avocado showed up this year at many of our favorite new spots-Jeffrey’s in Austin, Parka in Minneapolis, Chez Sardine in New York. And why not? There’s no subtext with the wedge (none of that "I’m healthy!"). Its only goal is to please. And in the end, isn’t that what we want from our food? —SCOTT DESIMON…

The art of eating (and drinking) out: An afternoon glass of wine is totally Wine with the Austenland star. Bad music? Not so much. Music Makes the Meal "I like music in restaurants—when it’s used well. I’ve spent a lot of kitchen time dancing to Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros’ ’Man on Fire.’ Embrace Happy Hour "It’s always okay to have an afternoon glass of wine. I’m a mother of two. Isn’t it in the rule book?" Don’t Obsess Overprice "It doesn’t always reflect a restaurant’s quality. If a place is cozy and delicious, it’s so much better than having eight courses and being uptight.". Go Early "I eat alone a lot, so I love finding a tucked-away-in-the-corner spot with my book, just when they open." Define Your Night "Maybe I’m old, but to me, ’going out’ means going…
