    Miso Hungry

    I'm of two minds about reviewing Japanese restaurants. On the one hand, I relish the opportunity. I adore the cuisine, particularly the raw stuff, and think that, at least in terms of sushi, Miami's Japanese eateries offer some of the freshest fi...

    'Tis the Seasoning

    Info: 'Tis the Seasoning By Jen Karetnick While waiting for our table, my guests and I glanced around at the racks of wine, the gleaming deli cases displaying imported meats and cheeses, the shelves of pastries scenting the market portion of Perri...

    No Pause for Claws

    Howie paused momentarily at the edge of the crowd, waiting for his field of vision to clear. He danced right, then faked left, spinning away from one obstacle after another. Then he spied an opening and took off, darting through the defensive line an...

    Another Year Devoured

    The start of the new year is a season as much for reflection as for anticipation. Past failures especially take on life all over again, a reincarnation that may prove uncomfortable for some. But it is this assessment, painful though it may be, that r...

    There's the Pub

    Some say that good teachers can teach anything. I happen to think that's true, to a point. Successful teaching does depend on imparting information in a clear and logical fashion. But knowledge of (or love for) what you're giving lessons in is not ex...

    Something Old, Something Noodle

    One year, when my parents claimed to be too tired to go out on their anniversary and consume a four-star meal, my sister and I decided to supply it for them in the comfort of their own dining room. We could be as elegant as any restaurant, we told ea...

    A Confederacy of Munches

    I had been looking forward to reading Pat Conroy's latest best seller, Beach Music, for two reasons: I admire Conroy's flowery style, and the Southern-boy protagonist in this novel, Jack McCall, is a food and travel writer. Devouring page after page ...

    Despite vultures, despite tourists, despite conventions galore, I look forward to the winter season for one reason: Important new restaurants, most of which have been remodeling, writing menus, and hiring staff for months, finally open to the public....

    A Bloom of One's Own

    "You have a great job," acquaintances declare when they find out what I do. "You're so lucky!" "Yup," I agree unequivocally. Then they turn to my husband. "And do you get to go along?" "Of course," he nods. "I wouldn't let her go without ...

    Deli Dancing

    I'm a sucker for gossip, which is the sole reason I maintain a subscription to the West Essex Tribune, my hometown paper. These past weeks I've gotten a good eyeful -- letters to the editor and editorials about Don's, the landmark eatery in Livingsto...

    The Song Remains the Same

    As long as I've lived in this town, I've felt guilty for not being Latin. Don't get me wrong. It may have taken my entire adolescence, but I did learn to love my identity -- my Jewishness, my femaleness, my Eastern European ancestry, my northeast...

    Fear of Flying

    I have this recurring nightmare, which always seems to hit me when I'm about to go out to a restaurant I'm almost positive will be very good: I dream I'm a P.R. flak paid to bang out praise, nothing but praise, about every joint in town. I told ...

    Tex-Mex Times Two

    South Beach's Mex Mess Cantina Mexicana and Southwestern Cafe and Tita's became inexorably linked in my mind when they opened within months of each other last year. Both have Mexican-sounding names -- the latter refers to the character from Lara Esqu...

    Poetry to the Palate

    Doggie Bag Blues

    Gut Filling

    As I see it, women and restaurants are alike in exactly one way: Once they earn a reputation, they've got it for life. Only it's usually "bad" women who can't shake public disdain, and "good" restaurants that never fall out of public favor even if th...

    Mexican Standoff
