    On The Line: David Hall Of Urban Kitchen Grill & Wine Bar, Part One

    Our initial impression of Foothill Ranch was that it was like Philips Ranch--a neighborhood hidden in the shadow of its Pomona. We learned it was actually more like its own city (while technically part of Lake Forest) in need of high-end cuisine. Cue Urban Kitchen's debut between a Wahoo's and Starb ... More >>

    Five "House-Made" Foods That Nearly Always Suck

    I applaud the back-to-basics ethos that's creeping through American dining recently, where chefs are taking seriously the idea of cooking from ingredients, rather than cooking from prepared foods.
