Taking the neurosis out of food, one meal at a time.

Don't you love being in the know? Like visiting a new town and having someone give you the skinny on the best fattening foods?
Our quartet has turned into a trio over the past week. We dropped off our daughter at the center of the universe, that's right, NYC. In January I had walked past a place near Grand Central; this past week I walked in, got pizza by the slice for the kids, and a wonderful stuffed spinach calzone, drenched in garlic, crammed with mozzarella, truly a thing of beauty. Bringing back the slices to the hotel room the elevator fella sniffed at the label on the box.
"You wanna know where to get the best pizza in the city?"
Are you kidding me?! Of COURSE I want to know!
He leaned over to let us in on the secret, pausing, then pronouncing "California Pizza Kitchen."
Okay. So maybe the ratings by locals are overrated.
