I am a bay area native steeped in the love of fresh ingredients and all things food and drink. We do that cocktail thing at The New Easy in Oakland, seven days a week. Come see us if you're in town.
Location: Oakland CA
Favorite foods: Tsukemono of all types, especially nukazuke. Pickles and more pickles. Roast chicken with butter, garlic, lemon, and Italian parsley. Saba shioyaki with takuanzuke and fluffy white rice. Puttanesca heavy on the anchovy. Drinks: Rye Manhattans. Nardini amaro highball with lemon. Navy-strength anything.
Last bite on earth: I'll leave that decision to the inspiration of the moment, but I can guarantee it's likely to be covered in bottarga.
