If’ you’ve ever written your own blog, you know there’s a nifty little feature called “save,” where you can put off publishing your post till later. That works great for procrastinating writers and busy editors (of which I am both), but sometimes it backfires, and the draft log becomes much larger than you’d like. When that happens to me, I feel compelled to purge what I’ve been saving. So today I’m launching a new feature I like to call “Draft Pub.” It has nothing to do with beers or bars, but I think the name is kind of catchy, and the act of it gets you the information I’ve been hoarding for way too long.
With that, here’s a report on an August dinner at X20 in Yonkers:

From dessert to drinks. We were several people at the bar, so sampled many things.
Tuna and watermelon and a cup of peach soup:
Toro three ways:
At left above, tartare. Below, seared:
Spicy tuna roll:
Wagyu beef with potato souffle:
(See, this really was August.) Heirloom tomatoes with basil puree:
Pork belly over jalapeno grits and cranberry coulis. Amazing combination of flavors and decadent, too.
Cod with mushrooms. Loved this too. Such a crispy crust:
Quail, breast and wings. Very good.
