Pancakes Just One of the Tasty Breakfast Items at The Griddle

Reviewer: food good enough, service solid at local breakfast joint.

It takes a certain level of skill to make a Hollandaise that doesn't break, a souffle that doesn't collapse.

Eat This Now – SABABA Kabab Plate

Eat This Now – SABABA Kabab Plate

Curtas: a neighborhood spot doing quality Mediterranean grub.

The falafel is to die for; the baba ganoush just as good, and those hunk’s o’ skewered meat twice as satisfying as our recent, overpriced t-bone at Craftsteak at at quarter the cost.

Eat This Now – CJ’s Vanilla Custard

Eat This Now – CJ’s Vanilla Custard

Curtas: nothing beats the heat on a 100-degree day like frozen custard.

FORTE Gets a Facelift

FORTE Gets a Facelift

A famous TV show recently visited the small eatery.

Critic: I-NABA = Soba-licious

Restaurant critic John Curtas says a new Japanese restaurant offers great buckwheat noodles, otherwise known as soba, but it might be hard to find.  

Favorite foodie friend Dr. Keita Sakon alerted us to the opening of this place yesterday, and, always on the lookout for pristine Japanese eats, we zeroed in on the location like a Zeke heading for the Ticonderoga. (Okay, maybe that’s not the best analogy, since those Zeros were trying to kill Anthony John (Cutsumpas) Curtas – 1926-2006 – the Official Father of ELV, but you get the idea.)
