Eat Drink, Journey, Issue #008 -- 2/20/2017
February 20, 2017
Hello all,

Several years ago, in the midst of craft cocktail madness, restaurateur Drew Nieperont issued a plaintive wail on the web: "Why can't I get a freaking vodka on the rocks?" In the midst of ten-ingredient signature cocktails, there's something refreshing in he simplicity of the classics. And it's true: only having three or four components in a drink makes you focus more clearly on the quality of those ingredients.

Other meditations this week included a long piece on the tyranny of the restaurant tasting menu, the health benefits of red wine, and a remembrance of my favorite Paris wine bar, La Tartine.

Have a happy President's Day.

Here are last week's posts:
