Malai Kitchen, a Bruncher’s Paradise

by Steven Doyle

Patio season is officially full on after the devastatingly hot and dry summer. The pooches are leading their sexy owners by the string past the cabanas that are playing soothing street music as cars bustle by to find a spot of their very own.

This in from Katherine…  “I can’t claim to have made this “perfectly composed” salad. But, I certainly did enjoy it. The artistry belongs to Eden on Lover’s Lane. Thought you might enjoy it though. Inquiring minds might want to know that it is a watermelon radish. I have been searching for the seeds since lunch.”

I know I am not the only one impressed with the marvelous job Andre Natera is doing over at Marquee Grill in Highland Park Village. His deft hand plays merriment on our palate, and it seems he never grows weary of playfulness in his kitchen.
