The Restaurant in the Cellar

Honolulu hideaway looks like the one to watch

Posted: February 13, 2015  By Harvey Steiman

Who would expect to find one of America's great restaurants hidden in the basement of a big shopping center in Honolulu? The archway entrance in the middle of the Ala Moana Shopping Center's lower parking level makes it feel like sneaking into a very fancy speakeasy. The meal I had there last week left me dazzled.

Sonoma’s Dining Shifts into High Gear

New restaurants in Healdsburg and Sonoma Valley are resetting the bar

Posted: February 11, 2015  By Tim Fish

The Sonoma County dining scene isn't like any place else. Chefs were doing farm to table back in the 1980s, long before it was de rigueur, and somehow over the years they've managed to keep it real. The chefs here hangout with farmers and the winemakers are connected to the land and the kitchen. Here are four new restaurants Sonoma diners are excited about.

Roasted: Why Not to be Self-Conscious About Your Wine-Tasting Notes

My coffee descriptors could use a jolt, but learning any beverage is a journey

Posted: February 10, 2015  By MaryAnn Worobiec

My colleague Harvey Steiman's recent blog posts about pairing wine and coffee reminded me of a story about the intersection of wine and coffee in my own life. One of our neighbors across the street invited us over for a beer. In his kitchen was the biggest, fanciest espresso maker I've ever seen. He was completely obsessed with coffee, and after chatting a while, he suggested I stop by a coffee tasting, or "cupping," at a local coffee importer and roaster that's open on the weekends.

Coffee and Wine, Part II

Cooking with coffee—everything but the drink itself

Posted: February 6, 2015  By Harvey Steiman

Has anyone ever put together an eight-course menu in which every dish involves coffee—and mostly without using the beans themselves or the drink made from them? Frank Kramm, the chef at Daylight Mind, my cousin's ambitious coffee bar, café, restaurant and coffee school in Kona, Hawaii, creatively pureed the coffee fruit itself to flavor a butter, burned chaff from roasting the beans to smoke roast duck, and sprinkled coffee-flavored salt over slices of raw fish. We paired the dishes with Roederer Champagne Cristal, Château Margaux, Beaux Fréres Pinot Noir and a Muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise.

Coffee and Wine, Part I

Finding parallels with different brews and wines

Posted: February 2, 2015  By Harvey Steiman

My cousin, coffee guru Shawn Steiman, agreed to try three different wines with three distinct kinds of coffee with me, to compare how both beverages might reflect where they were grown and how they were made. I chose a fresh white wine, a lighter style of red and a full-bodied red, and Shawn used three different coffees in three styles: drip, full-immersion and espresso.

A Seminal Star Winks Out

Étoile, the restaurant at Domaine Chandon, launched an era

Posted: January 13, 2015  By Harvey Steiman

The restaurant that jump-started fine dining in Napa Valley closed Jan. 1, to be converted into an elaborate tasting room. Étoile had too much competition from the long list of great restaurants that stretch from Napa to Calistoga these days, and its operators reportedy could not reach an agreement on lease arrangements.
