GrapeThinking

Tuesday, September 13th, 2011

This video is a compilation of my harvests in the agroturismos of Italy, the desert of Argentina, and the sunshine of northern California. The music is one of my favorite songs of all time, it’s called Voyageur by Enigma. I moved out to California a year ago with a bottle of GrapeThinking, a bottle of ideas I guess you could say, that started filling up 5 years ago with conversation between myself, Jacob Bohall, Ruarri Rogan, Meghan O’Malley, and many others. Over the past year, those ideas have delightfully fermented, and the time has finally come for us to have a taste…

10 Degrees South, Atl, Ga

Monday, June 23rd, 2008

10 Degrees SouthThis so far is my favorite in . Incredible representation of South African cuisine and atmosphere. Part of the is an outdoor awning with design style very close to a on the coast. Very rustic and breezy. I had the Kingclip fish, indigenous to , and it was nothing short of amazing – I’ve got to rate it up there with salmon as one of my favorites. My gf had ostrich, which seems like a stretch, but it was equally as tasty. Very fresh concept with exotic food – Love it! The Ferraris usually parked out front don’t hurt either — *****, $$

Caveau Wine Bar, Heritage Square, Cape Town

Friday, May 23rd, 2008

Caveau Wine Bar Caveau is a good escape from Long Street’s chiaroscuro of either uber-pretentious or super-scummy dives… I swear I will never set foot in Miam Miam again but Marvel also grows a little old once you tire of becoming a human bolus being masticated against the gyrating bodies of every tourist and pick-pocket in Cape Town.

Caveau is a breath of fresh air for the city centre, with an urban-rustic feel to it, combining class and elegance with a laid back environment. The design, lay out and mood leave you feeling like you’ve stepped out of and discovered a more modern Franschoek. On the three occasions I’ve been there I’ve shared a bottle of their 2004 Spice Route Mourvedre. Accustomed to the Cape’s usual Noble varietals it’s amazing to see how well other cultivars benefit from the Cape’s rich soils. This is a nice big red that has a faint bloody-Maryesque note on the nose. It’s great to see how this Spanish has done – bring on Tempranillo!

Shiki Sushi, RTP, NC

Tuesday, May 20th, 2008

I’ve had sushi in NY, San Fran, LA, Chicago, , and I still keep coming back to Shiki Sushi. The Shiki chefs put incredible creativity and imagination into their craft – their sushi is pure aesthetic perfection with beautiful colors and display complemented by a euphoric taste experience of flavors and textures. Along with its upbeat ambience, Shiki provides the ultimate sensual satisfaction . I love all the new hybrid lounges starting up that realize dining out is about the complete sensual experience. If ever in the Research Triangle Park, NC, Shiki is a must. Oh ya, and it’s always buy 1 get 1 free! *****, $$
