2011 has definitely been a year of good eats for me. Hitting two restaurants from my bucket list, Alinea and Tru, were the highlights and the food did not disappoint. Throughout the year, though, there were many surprises. Below is my list of the best of what was on g-fork’s plate this year (and in […]
Here’s a re-imagining of g-fork, once again. This is its third incarnation in eight years. Yes, g-fork is that old. If you are curious what the original g-fork looked like, you can check it out on the wayback machine. I am still making small tweaks to the site, but this is what it is and […]

On my way to the airport yesterday, Bruce and I had a heated discussion about bagels, pizza and burritos.
