This week's tablehopper: dishy.


Beets roasted on hay with fresh cheese, wild sprouts, and flowers (from Coi).

Damn, people! I can’t thank you enough for the incredible outpouring of enthusiasm and support for Deep Dishing this week. It means a lot, truly. It has been so much fun checking out the comments, watching the top dishes and places rise on the home page, and I’ve already learned some great tips in the Tip Please! forum (like in this one on croissants, and just in time for the weekend, there’s a discussion about brunch spots). Huge thanks from me and the Phile team—please keep it comin’!

Had a swell time at the Meatpaper Food & Thought party last night at SFMOMA—the beautiful dish you see pictured here was from Evan Rich of Coi. And any wine lover really needs to check out the How Wine Became Modern exhibit. Architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro created one hell of a sexy installation.

The weather is about to go haywire (here’s my current favorite weather tracker), so I thought you’d like a cozy restaurant where you could warm up. Check out my review of Eiji in the regular today. And please, for God’s sake, follow the rules.

Have a toasty weekend!
