    Battle Cupcake! - Ian binges on cupcakes from Jilly's and the Cupcakery -- and lives to write about it.

    By happy coincidence, this week's review is published on Halloween, a holiday that I've grown to despise (since when, exactly, has this stopped being a day for kids to dress up and trick-or-treat and instead become one more excuse for adults to get w...

    All American "Fun" Burger Mallow Giant Size Burger - Price and provenance unknown

    Say it ain't so! Sugar, that purest, most stable of foodstuffs, grows mold? I can accept that tomatoes grow mold. Bread? That seems reasonable, too. But I cannot accept that the months-old (and still in the package!) All American "Fun" Burger Mal...

    Review Preview: 17th Street Bar & Grill

    Even before you pull into the parking lot, you'll smell the wood-smoke. And if that doesn't alert you that this place is Pork Valhalla, then the benches out front certainly will. They are in the shape of pigs; the pigs have a glazed, contented look....

    Mea Culpa

    Here's an example of the pain-in-the-assitude of a weekly publication schedule: In this week's review of Acero, I wrote that black truffles are as rare as a Scott Rolen base hit. Poetic exaggeration, sure, but the dude was scuffling. Key word bein...

    Spice Is Nice - Ian likes it hot -- way hot.

    A running joke among aficionados of Thai cuisine is that no matter how hard you beg, plead, wheedle, boast or threaten, the kitchen won't serve your red curry or tom yum soup as hot as the Thai themselves prefer. For the most part, you're stuck with ...

    Caramel Apple Halloween Milk Shake - Steak n Shake, 4640 Chippewa; 314-752-2100.

    If we were heretofore unfamiliar with Steak n Shake, we'd probably write them off entirely because of that awkward "N," the same way we'd shun Kousin Karl's Kountry Bait n Tackle for our fishing needs. Call us grammar snobs, but we like places we can...

    As far as historical dates are concerned, October 25 is pretty dull. There are a few notable births and deaths (Pablo Picasso [born in 1881], Geoffrey Chaucer [died in 1400]), but when it comes to watershed events, what does old 10/25 really have to...

    Review Preview: Acero

    Our waiter was referring to yours truly, about to do a face-plant in my mushroom ravioli. These delicate morsels, adrift in a sauce of melted, mildly tangy caciotta (a Tuscan cheese made mostly from sheep's milk), were very good, but the true object...
