James Beard Award-winning writer and editor Colman Andrews is known to many for his role as a co-founder for Saveur magazine as well as for his deep expertise on Spanish and Irish cuisine. The East Coast author has written about food, music, art and culture for Bon Appetit, Food & Wine, Travel & Leisure, New West, Gourmet, Creem, The Hollywood Reporter. Post-Saveur, he signed on as editorial director to The Daily Meal, an online food and drink site. Now Andrews has penned a new book called My Usual Table (Harper Collins, $25.99) on the notable restaurants that have defined dining history and his life.
The book is a fun read and covers hot spots such as El Bulli, Trader Vic's and Chasen's that are now shuttered but not forgotten. Andrews will be in the Bay Area next month & dished with us on where he'd like to eat and whether or not he'd catch up with his longtime pal Alice Waters.More »
