You say tomato…

* Believe it or not, spring will return and things will start growing again. Now is the time to start looking for a community-supported agriculture group. Tomato Tomato, an indoor farmer's market near 156th and Center, is having its yearly sign-up for the general public on March 1. Many other local farms start signups at this time of year as well. * Chef Paul Kulik of The Boiler Room has been invited to serve a dinner at the James Beard House in New York City on March 30. Patrons purchase tickets to dine at the house as a fundraiser for the James Beard Foundation, named for the renowned American chef and food writer. Being invited to be a guest chef is an incredible honor. Visit...

Suhsi returns to O Dining

O Dining, located on the edge of the Old Market at 10th and Farnam, will not only be returning sushi to their menu, they’ll be upping the presentation as well. Over the next few weeks, the restaurant will install a kaiten sushi bar, a rotating conveyor belt that allows customers to pluck whatever sushi dish catches their eye as it slowly moves past them. The plates are color-coded, so when it’s time to pay your server simply tallies the number of each color and presents you with the bill. Look for it in mid- to late March. * One of the most buzzed-about books this year is Gabrielle Hamilton’s Bones, Blood and Butter, a memoir that fellow chef Antony Bourdain, among others, have been...

Stirred, But Not Shaken

Consider the humble Daquiri, a drink that calls for just three ingredients: sugar, rum and lime juice. What should be a refreshing, simple drink that perfectly tempers the sweet burn of white rum with the zing of fresh lime is consistently turned into a dayglo concoction that has more in common with a sugary Slurpee than something an adult would drink. The folks at The Side Door would like to change that. For the past three months the small, elegantly appointed lounge tucked away next to the Family Dollar at 3530 Leavenworth St. has quietly been making some of the best, most authentic cocktails in town. Yes, The Side Door also serves beer and wine, but not a lot. There are just five...

Grey’s Anatomy

Journalists are supposed to be unbiased. Most writers, at their best, do as well as they can to stay neutral, too. That being said, I knew I would like The Grey Plume before I even saw the sign go up last December outside its home on 31st and Farnam. I know its chef/owner Clayton Chapman professionally. I interviewed him for a profile several years ago when he was the executive chef at Spencer’s For Steaks and Chops, and I run into him periodically around town, mostly at foodie events. He is always pleasant, and frankly, he’s just plain cute. Actually, dreamy is the right word, with his wavy blond locks, permanent smile and soft voice. So I confess, I knew I would have plenty of good...
