Your Perks: 1) Vintage Rolexes modified to be all black. Which is always in. 2) A foldable bike that collapses in about 10 seconds. Making it even more portable. 3) Sustainably sourced Italian caviar. Good for any occasion that calls for caviar. And even some that don’t.
Things to do for November 04, 2015
Chino’s New Brunch and Napa’s New Noodles
Oh, come on. One more weekend won’t kill you.
The Little Ramen Pop-Up That Could
Sometimes, pop-ups grow so popular that they become real restaurants. Like Iza Ramen. It started as a weekend-only thing at Blowfish Sushi, but amassed such a following that it now has its own brick-and-mortar serving ramen with kimchi, chicken gyoza and Wagyu steak tartare. Everyone’s currently living happily ever after.
Just Loads of Sherry at Holy Mountain
A frustrating conversation between us and someone named Cheri.
Us: The bar-in-restaurant at Hawker Fare is hosting a sherry party all week.
Cheri: Really? I’m flattered.
Us: They’ll have a curated list of sherries and special sherry-based drinks.
Cheri: Wait, what?
Us: We’re talking about liquor.
Cheri: This was dumb.
Looks Like You’re Eating BBQ
There’s a nice arrangement going on at Southpaw. Here’s how it works: you can still get all of Southpaw’s classics (smoked pulled goat, fried pickles...). But now you can also get Sneaky’s Carolina-style BBQ pulled pork and dry-rub ribs. So as far as arrangements go, this one’s not bad.
Quite the Italian Place Here
Next time you’re in Napa, stop by Ca’ Momi Osteria. It’s a high-ceilinged restaurant with wood-oven-roasted pork shank and Neapolitan-style pizza. They also have a seal of approval from the Italian government and their certification from the Associazione Pizzaiuoli Napoletani. Which is... something.
It’s a Good Morning-After Brunch
Chino’s doing brunch now. This guide should help you navigate it:
If you’re hungover: Try the morning bao with housemade bacon.
If you’re really hungover: Go with the pork belly and ham hock jook.
If you’re beyond repair: Mimosa Jell-O shots.
Then maybe find a bed.
