[M]ost of the pastas hover around $25. This ought to be enough to buy bucatini that is cooked on both ends. -- Pete Wells on Caravaggio ( * review)
Tonight, there was a dessert of coconut, rhubarb, and black olive. Obvious in its execution how innovation and experiment, when introduced for their own sake, are annoying. --irnscrabblechf52, May 9, 2013

Yes, I made a reference to him out of the blue and he responded out of the blue.
Didn't he just post here a couple of days ago?
Very sorry to hear this - condolences to his family, friends and dining cohorts.
He called me a wag. I told him that I had missed him.

Tony, My "bruvver"
I regret it now, which is easy with hindsight, but I am comforted by the thought that, if I had ever got over my own stupidity and contacted him, he would have assumed that same East End Jewish accent and said “ no bovver, let’s go and have dinner” and that would have been it. That’s the kind of man he was. Although, I did not always think I was his friend, I am pretty sure he always thought I was his.
I love that.

When working with high heat, the first contact between the cooking surface and the food must be respected.
