Let’s take Oskar’s out for a picnic! Wednesday, Aug 5 2020 

I’ve been doing a lot of takeout dining in the past couple of months, and I’m content with that.

Yes, there is such a thing as a free lunch, at Dakshin Wednesday, May 6 2020 

When the pandemic abruptly shut down all the restaurants in March, Dakshin Indian Restaurant’s owner Sanjay Taxak took many of the same steps as other local eateries: He started offering takeout service and curbside pickup, and he began offering his restaurant’s Indian fare delivered via Grubhub, Postmates, and Uber Eats.

Shirley Mae’s puts the soul in soul food Wednesday, Oct 16 2019 

Some say that the art of soul, in music or in food, can never be mastered by white folks, and I can buy this hypothesis: Lacking a history of slavery and oppression, we just don’t have the tools born of heritage. But we can certainly enjoy soul, and honor it, whether we’re listening to Aretha … Continue reading Shirley Mae’s puts the soul in soul food

The Table does well by doing good Wednesday, Oct 2 2019 

Wouldn’t it be a wonderful thing if every restaurant followed the pay-what-you-can model of The Table in Portland? What if Vincenzo’s or Jeff Ruby’s, for example, made its menu pricing variable depending on what the diner could afford?
