What was the food highlight of your year?
The costata alla fiorentina 42oz 175 prime dry-aged bone-in new york at Chi Spacca with 2001 Cathiard Aux Malconsorts, Vosne-Romanee was pretty amazing! The resto is all about grilled meats and this piece was singing. The wine was equally beautiful. In a great spot with developed aromas and flavors along with fruit.
What was the music highlight of your year?
Failure at El Rey, Los Angeles. Love the band and records back in the day and seeing the reunited playing their tunes after something like 16 years off was really fun. And they were good!
Was there a moment when food and music came together in a memorable way?
Yes, many times in NOLA! Pretty amazing how food and music are so revered there. Experiencing real deal jazz musicians at the legendary Preservation Hall and gulf seafood at so many of the city's restos is something not to be missed.
