  • I taste a lot of wine, both for work and pleasure.  I would like to get better at it, but I don't know how.   While I am able to pick out varietals, and often, even regions, pretty accurately, I want more than that. I want to be able to pick out all of the wine's nuances, both on the nose and on the palate.  Often when I am tasting I find that o...

  • I'm coming to LA in September.  It's for a conference, on a weekend.  I'm staying downtown at the Biltmore.  I need a recommendation for a restaurant on Fri and Saturday.  It would be good if it was walkable, since the conference isn't providing a car.  Not outrageously expensive, since I'll be with colleagues and wife will be home.  But need a ...
