A Hamburger Today
Behind the Scenes in Maggie's Home Kitchen (and Bar)
I lived for five years in a 450 square foot apartment in the East Village and somehow still managed to throw huge dinner parties, but I'm super-thankful to have upgraded when we moved to San Francisco. Our current kitchen nook isn't perfect, but I love that it's open to the rest of the living space, so the cook can be part of pre-dinner conversations. (Also, having fought with dirty grout in my most recent rental, my new kitchen's solid black countertops are a joy.)
The only hitch: Chez Hoffman also serves as Serious Drinks headquarters, so there's a lot of beer, wine, and cocktail paraphernalia to pack in. Pretty much every cupboard shelf is full of glassware, and every shelf that's not full of glassware is full of booze. Want to take a tour? Right this way...
