Zavino still isn’t open for business as snags have been hit. Last night we noticed a wooden frame for handicap accessible ramp was being constructed along the side. How long does it take for concrete to set in this weather?

    I am so sick of the “address as name” concept, like 15/18. Enough!! Think of something original.

    I went to Han Dynasty yesterday. AWESOME! The heat is there but does not overshadow the wonderful and complex spice combination and the flavor of the dish. No holding back on the numbing Sichuan peppercorns either. Dry pan lamb was out of this world. The pepper pork that had a 4 heat rating had very little heat. Must have been bum long green peppers. Definitely planning to go back soon.
