This week's tablehopper: kiss kiss.

Howdy amigos. You keeping dry out there? I have been hiding in movie theaters (I highly recommend seeing La La Land if you want to forget about everything for a couple of hours) and restaurants (like experiencing the Chinese New Year/Grandma Wu’s menu at M.Y. China—and the showstopping dessert will bring a big smile to your face).

I was hoping to have a piece for you about ROOH today (it opens this Thursday!), but their menu wasn’t ready in time for my deadline, so I’ll share details with you next week. Let’s just say the preview meal I experienced was exciting and fun.

In other news, I decided to run a couple of reviews of two places that are ever-changing: In Situ and Postcards from La Costiera at Mina Test Kitchen. Now that I think about it, MTK would be really fun for Valentine’s Day, in case you haven’t found a spot yet (and the concept wraps up at the end of the month, so the timing is right!). You can read more ideas in my Valentine’s Day post from last week.

Okay lovebirds, I am all out of words for the moment—this week’s issue was a heftier one. I need a drink!
