Beans, Beans, the Magical Fruit

The sort of secret blog of Beans, a.k.a. Jules, a.k.a. "Legs for Miles" a.k.a. "Rackie the Boob Queen." Fine, ok, not the last two. Starting July 2006, sometimes "Mike," aka "fagadoccio," is a co-poster on the blog. The co-poster child, really.

Restaurant Week at Periyali

You know, since I'm harshing on Riingo for the diaper-scrapings it threw at us for restaurant week, I should point out that Periyali, which has as high a price point as Riingo, did a very nice RW, keeping the apps simple (spanikopita, greek salad) and focusing on really great entrees (like generous lamb chops--$29 alone on the regular dinner menu.) Dessert was a walnut cake that would make excellent brick if you needed to build an especially strong fortress.

Anyway, it was nice to finally check that place out after its Bruni review provided the fodder for my personal favorite Bruni Digest ever.

One of my favorite Frank quotes came from that review, too:

“Fried rings of calamari...made all those reckless pub versions seem like so many oily bread crumbs with specious claims to maritime paternity.”

Its true, they offered the calamari as a RW app, and girl, its baby daddy was definitely something fresh-assed and maritime.
