A few things that caught my eye reading Sunday’s food and drink section:
The Washington Square Bar & Grill is back open. The famous Washbag. I never got to go before and now it is back. They even hired back their long time bartender. I might try it for brunch this weekend.
Did you know there is an irreverent, semi-secret group of drinkers and historians called the Clampers? Well I didn’t. Learn all about them here.
And then something a bit different in an article about air chilled chicken – it’s the new thing these days at fancy restaurants. I saw this:
Zaré at Fly Trap in San Francisco is one of dozens of Bay Area restaurants now featuring air-chilled chicken. For his $19 drunken half-chicken, Persian-born, chef-proprietor Hoss Zaré poaches Niman Ranch air-chilled chicken in cream, stock and pomegranate beer.
Hmm…wonder if he is using Shmaltz’s Origin pomegranate ale?
