Greatest Hits and What You Missed: Tiki Bars, Peanut Chews, Sbraga, Fried Chicken and Weed

It was a week of sushi, tiki bars and Korean fried chicken–and that was all just on the first day. Before the week was out, we would also have news of David Ansill fleeing the country (to smoke a lot of weed and cook some fresh fish), Goldenberg’s Peanut Chews coming back strong, another staff shake-up at Farmer’s Cabinet and the official release of 2011’s The Menu.And that’s not even counting our Sbraga news, our Jen Carroll news (see below) or our eating-dumplings-in-a-basement news.

Here’s the best of it, organized for your convenience:
