Good morning and happy Monday. I had an Iron Pizza Chef battle with my husband on Friday night. Normally, we each choose our own toppings and then pick a winner. This time, it was more of a team effort. We each chose heirloom tomatoes, mozzarella and basil with a sprinkling of Parmesan. You just can’t go wrong this time of year. Only difference? One with yellow and one with red. Man I love August.


With that, here’s what people have been talking about over the weekend.

MH likes most dishes at 12 Grapes yet gives it only a “good.” (NY Times.)

Alice gives Q in Mount Kisco the Quick Bites treatment. (NY Times.)

A couple thoughts on outdoor dining in Westchester and Putnam. (Chowhound.)

Doug hits Hito Asian Bistro. So-so. (Hungry Travels.)

What else did I miss?
