  1. Past hour
  2. Not to be confused with the bakery named Mel. I'd start prepping a cease and desist...
  3. Yesterday
  4. tom kha gai; crispy chicken over garlic and ginger rice, from lers ros thai (307 hayes (franklin street)) in hayes valley
  5. There will be two restaurants and a cocktail bar in the Del Posto space. First, opening next month, is a casual restaurant called Mel. The fine dining restaurant Al Coro will open in the spring. We loved her food at Del Posto.
  6. Cocoa nibs? Those are good, too! But really, a plain meringue with a chewy center is perfection in itself!
  7. I'm sure, but I'm not a big coconut fan. 😉
  8. I had a gin-based cocktail last night. Guess that shows I'm not Scottish. 😉
  9. Steve, WOW ! That was deep and thoughtful ... but I don't think that I fully understood some of the details ... they kind of went over my head ... that said, it seems to me that you could be a marvelous mentor ... picture you and me, working closely together ... so help me out here because I don't really see the benefit of "harm reduction" ... and why wouldn't you want victims strewn about the place ? and why wouldn't you want to decapitate if provoked ? and why wouldn't you want to leave a bloody mess in your wake ? Otherwise, where's that going to get you ... I know there's answers
  10. former executive chef of del posto, melissa rodriguez will be opening al coro in the same space as del posto supposedly later in 2022

    well their resy link is active and not many pix on their ig account it’s showtime…
  12. These days, no one is allowed near my face. Well, maybe Ginny. However, your link did alert me to the fact that you invoked my name on that thread when "borderlines" were referenced. As someone who (as you figured) worked with them quite a bit, I'm pretty convinced that part of the process (maybe a lot of it) is to help them get their goals met in ways other than leaving victims strewn about the place. A "harm reduction" method. There's a whole branch of mental health theory devoted to that these days. Even seems to work on internet boards. Sometimes.
  13. Nothing lewd, chez Chambo ... only art, humor and humanity ... sometimes raw, sometimes in the raw ... but nothing lewd And you should probably read this You're such a square, Steve ! I doubt that you could see a curve if came up and kissed you on the face
  14. If they stuck to their advertised criteria, the Hall would be almost empty. Or totally empty.
  15. Nope. And Ginny (my wife) has me restricted from lewd videos such as the one you've posted. (I did see the movie though.... were you giving me a hint?)

    Hey it took me a couple of minutes to figure out. Cuz you’re right: who here would write about Mena in the “Mena” thread?

    Well, who the hell sticks to the thread topic around here?! Nevermind.

    He meant the hotel Mena is in.
  19. This tracking is so easy now it's automated ... in fact this college freshman is trying to parlay his privacy-intruding @ElonJet twitter account into an Elon internship ... some nice bidding is going on ... Elon offered $5k if the kid would can the account ... kid said add a zero cuz that would help with tuition and maybe give him enough coin for a cool (Elon) car ... Musk is mulling that over but Elon has yet to respond ... kid thinks that's because Elon's on vacay on Maui ... and it sure seems like it, per @ElonJet ... well, at least Elon's 2015 Gulfstream G650 is there ... A crappy, o

    Actually, I wouldn't recommend not going (how's that for a double negative?). After all, my mediocre review was based on 4 visits to date, which wouldn't have happened if it "wasn't very good". Its just not as good as it should be and has left me wanting a bit more each time. And that includes the wine pairings, which are also "okay", nothing more (or less). However, each evening has been fine, as I'm not looking for superstars, just worthwhile dining experiences. The room is nice, the staff friendly, all food is from good ingredients, prepared very well and tasty, and its been a plus to
  21. Meringues are very nice with toasted coconut added

    We were loyal patrons of the original in Paris and found the cooking/dish conception quite uneven. But we returned at least once every visit because of the welcome and infectious enthusiasm of the principals. Always an excellent evening if not the finest meal.
  23. NOT SAFE FOR WORK … or your MARRIAGE ! Hmmmm … very strange, Steve 🤔 Do you see any curved lines here ? 🧐 Cuz I’m now wondering if you are looking with EYES WIDE SHUT 🙈
  24. Gotta read between the lines, I guess. i.e. Don't be such a dick to sportswriters. And fans.

    Supper

    Classic beef with carrots With the help of my trusty spaetzle maker. We're in the country and called a neighbor to see if they wanted to come up for supper. While they apologized that they were not yet joining others inside, they were delighted to come retrieve a casserole of "take out".
