Food Review  February 17, 2012, by Kate Thornberry
"...What this has to do with Komé is that, unlike the sea of indistinguishable strip-mall sushi places that seem to open with regularity, Komé is one of these impossible gems of individuality.

Bistrot Mirabelle
Cozy French classics
Food Review  February 24, 2012, by Rachel Feit
"...When veteran restaurateur Brian O'Neill purchased Northwest Hills' Mirabelle Res­tau­rant from Michael Villim (onetime owner of the now-defunct Castle Hill Cafe), he knew he already had a loyal neighborhood client base.

An armored truck robbery of $42 million is an inside job in this action film starring Matt Dillon, Laurence Fishburne, and Jean Reno.
Film Review  December 11, 2009, by Marc Savlov
"...Antal's direction has the zip and zing (and ricocheting ballistics) of early John Carpenter (Assault on Precinct 13, the original, comes to mind) and he keeps the story front and center while avoiding any flash other than that which issues from the barrel of a gun. It's hardly a classic of the genre, but then again, like Armour hot dogs, it's comfort food for men...."

Food Review  November 19, 2004, by Rachel Feit
"...Siena is one of them, emerging as a favorite among the Loop 360 set. Owner Stan Adams and Executive Chef Harvey Harris exert considerable effort to cultivate its clientele, treating them to appetizers if the food service is uncharacteristically slow, hosting prix-fixe wine dinners, or opening its doors to wedding receptions and parties..."

Film Review  January 17, 2004, by Russell Smith
"...As is par for the course for Hong Kong imports, the English subtitling ranges from stilted to near-dadaistic, and the production values as a whole suffer by comparison with equivalent Hollywood products.

"...Our Thanksgiving table this year included vegans; vegetarians; people with wheat, sugar, and dairy sensitivities; a surprisingly large number of people who don't like turkey; and one guest who steadfastly refuses to consume anything but pie and dinner rolls. This means that no one is in a position to judge anyone else's weird food stuff and, as a bonus, there's always a dedicated audience happy to take home even the strangest leftovers (cranberry sauce with sour cream and horseradish, anyone?)...."
