Farewell Lunch
Farewell Lunch
We said goodbye to our amazing General Manager Alaina this week. For her farewell lunch we took her to Mission Chinese Food, where Kenji made her this pulled pig tail sandwich. Then made her eat it.

Robyn and Max met Southern food bureau chief and former intern Jed for lunch at Shopsins. Yes, he really does dress like this. The box in his hand? Hand-imported moon pies.
