Ah, yeah, I wish I was posting from Japan as well…sigh. My older brother sent me this On the Table shot of breakfast at the Toyoko Inn in Asakusa, Japan. It’s comprised of rice balls, miso soup, pasta salad, meatballs and sticky rice. I love the composition of the food, and I’d love to know what’s in those sushi rolls, but the tray might be the best part of all! My next trip will not be taking me to Japan, but to Brooklyn for an artisanal tour of everything from coffee to chocolate..watch for the posts..

Hint: A different set of shakers grace each table at this famous Chicago restaurant. Guess which one it is for a chance to guest blog.
I love sardines. Yeah, I said it. I love them fried at restaurants, or in a lemon garlic-lemon fettuccini with breadcrumbs (I have made this and it rocks). But it seems it’s not just canned fish, but fish cans themselves that are making an appearance on restaurant tables with the bill. New white-hot spots from Japanese Yusho in Logan Square to Spanish Tavernita in River North are flaunting the creative bill delivery, and while it may not new, it’s a cool touch.
