  • Collective Sole

    City Grill hasn't lost its stride, Barbara Chisholm writes. In its early days, it was one of a few spots in Austin that offered good dining in a sophisticated atmosphere. These days, the competition in that arena is considerably more intense, and yet it remains popular and perfectly in style. It's not an easy trick.

  • An Immense World of Delight

    It used to be a commonplace of moralists that man was the only creature in the animal kingdom to slaughter his own kind. But as Chronicle writer Roger Gathman points out, kind is slaughtered by kind routinely among ants, salamanders, and, as any child can tell you, guppies. The golden rule, in nature, is not "do unto others" -- it is "why waste the protein?"
