I haven’t been to Passerotto yet, but a random person at Half Acre recommended this place to me, and now I want to try it.
Info: Passerotto (Italian for “little sparrow”) is a neighborhood Korean restaurant from award-winning chef-owner Jennifer Kim. The food draws on Kim’s Korean heritage: paying homage to the traditional and, occasionally, not-quite-traditional dishes she grew up eating with her family, adding a few minor touches from the Midwest and Central Italy, a nod to the way coastal Italian food has impacted her life.

Please note that I have reservations, but if you RSVP expect that there might need to be flexibility with the start time (depending on how many are coming). Due to this: please RSVP by noon on Wednesday.

Seasons Greetings!

This place is fairly new and I have been meaning to check it out. The space looks cool and I’ve been told the food is great. I’ve also been told that there is justice in the world. Join me if you like. Perhaps we can grab drinks at my place and walk over or meet in Andersonville.

Hope you all are well!

Michelin-Approved Brunch and More Coming to New Uptown Diner on Friday

This one goes out to the people who like to be the first to try a restaurant. 3 Squares opened in Uptown a month ago yesterday (so hopefully it’ll have worked out the first month jitters by the time we’re there) and if it’s anything like Jam it’ll be all kinds of delicious. Unlike Jam, though, it’s much more than just a breakfast place, and the menu is simple but promising.

RSVP by Friday at noon.
