A second helping of Cafe Society, October 14-18
This week Gretchen Kurtz reviewed the underrated and vegetarian-friendly Sunny Gardens, which specializes in dishes with mock meat. Mark Antonation, who's still eating his way up Federal Boulevard one restaurant at a time, stopped at the "burrito bunker" of the original Bubba Chinos. His meal there was a gut bomb, but definitely better than what we ate at the allegedly third-worst restaurant in the country (can you guess what it is?). And for her Chef and Tell interview, Lori Midson visited a top-notch local restaurant to chat with Beast + Bottle's pastry chef, Andrea Wight.
