Trip to San Francisco yields desire to bake sourdough bread

Tony Bennett has always been one of my favorite singers, and his song, "I left my heart in San Francisco," has been running through my mind after my recent trip. In my case, after indulging in all the fresh seafood, luscious wine, rich chocolate and melt-in-your-mouth sourdough bread, I probably should have left my now too-tight jeans in San Francisco.

Quite Possibly Your New Favorite Pasta

Choosing a favorite pasta is like choosing a favorite outfit: An obviously impossible task, and yet there are those you keep coming back to, riffing on endlessly until you're sure you've exhausted all combinations, then still finding more to love.

Restaurateur gets lobsters stoned before killing them - CNET

The next time you go to dinner at a fancy restaurant you might spot a chilled-out lobster hanging out in the seafood tank. While most of us would like to believe lobsters don't feel pain when we boil them alive for dinner, one restaurateur wants to find a more peaceful end for the tasty crustaceans.

J. Paul's is a classic saloon with all the pertinent hallmarks (dark wood, reproduction gaslights, tin ceiling, checkered tablecloths, etc.). The bar itself is a bona fide antique that came out of a real Chicago saloon. Crab cakes and baby-back ribs are the standouts here; but don't overlook the salads, which are long on taste and innovation but not so low in calories. J. Paul's was the first restaurant opened by Capital Restaurant Concepts, a local company with a proven track record, so expect things to run pretty smoothly here. The raw bar, with four different types of oysters as well as clams and spiced shrimp, is a bit of a sleeper here. The desserts, which are all made inhouse and change frequently, are downright deadly. Come before 6:30 p.m. if you want to be seated without delay. On weekends the wait can be up to 45 minutes for a table. Also, while there's a nice children's menu available, come early if you're with the family. Things can get pretty lively here as the night wears on (and the brews keep pouring)."
