Apart from the time I spend with my wife, nothing brings me more joy than the NYTimes Wednesday Dining section. I know I'll always find a quality front page story on local (New York) or international cuisine, along with intriguing pieces on booze and the restaurant industry.
It seems a colorful world _ restaurants _ and though I'd never enter its frenetic confines for work, it remains rich for fictional use. I can think of only two films on the cooking life, "Big Night" and "Eat, Drink, Man, Woman." I know there must be more, and also plays, novels, poems. Someone help me out.
That said... It's time for lunch.
