Hi folks.

Sorry I’ve been so long between posts these days. I do want to point out that we’ve started a few new features, and they include lots of food news. I’ll try to start posting these on the blog, but if you don’t see them here, check the news tab on this blog to see food stories each week.

One of the new features is called Restaurants We Love. It runs in the Sunday Life section, and we make recommendations on places you shouldn’t miss making a reservation. (This week’s is on Tarry Lodge in Port Chester.) Another is called New In Town — also in Sunday Life — and we cover news in 18 retail businesses each week, many of them restaurants.

And always check the Wednesday newspaper for food features and news. I’ll post this week’s salad recipes later today. With that, here’s what people have been talking about lately:
