America’s 50 Best Italian Restaurants Feb 2016

The Italian restaurant in America has changed in style probably more than any other genre of restaurant over the past several decades. Even as recently as 50 years ago, the term "Italian restaurant" conjured images of red and white checkered tablecloths, carafes of middling chianti, and a red sauce-heavy menu with classics like chicken Parmigiana that were more Italian-American than authentic Italian. Then something interesting happened: People got bored, and a new breed of Italian restaurant came onto the scene, able to rival even the highest-end French dining rooms.

FOOD How to Roast Cauliflower (the Whole Thing) Jan 2016

By: Julia Moskin, The New York Times

For home cooks, it’s all too easy to fall into a vegetable rut. Coming up with main courses for weeknight dinners is hard enough; very often, vegetables are the afterthought. Salad dumped out of a bag, or some out-of-season steamed asparagus or roasted brussels sprouts — these basics let us check the “green” box. But they are hardly inspiring.

In a digital world, this old school branding niche has new currency at New Orleans restaurants Dec 2015

By: Ian McNulty, Times-Picayune

The 20 best Italian restaurants in America Nov 2015

A partnership between two heavyweights—celeb restaurateur John Besh and his acclaimed protégé Alon Shaya—this splashy, happening hub in the Roosevelt Hotel operates with maximum panache, yet minimal fuss. To say that the pizzas at Domenica rival any found in Italy is almost an insult, because of course they do; fancy pastas like the dramatically black-and-white squid-ink tagliolini with blue crab enjoy equal fame.

The Best Hotel & Restaurant Pairings Jan 2015

By: Christopher Garland, Go Nola

When traveling to a city, there are two main considerations — where are we going to stay and where are we going to eat. In many cases, these are two distinct endeavors: We’ll get a room here, and we’ll go out for food and drinks there.
