This week in SAFII:
There was plenty of good news, in terms of appointments (Craig Strong as Executive Chef of Studio, at the Montage Laguna Beach), openings (a froyo shop--natch--a gelato shop attached to a Thai restaurant (of course!!) and a sparkly Vietnamese) and resurrections (Carl's Jr's Portobello Mushroom Six Dollar Burger, no less).
Meanwhile, Gustavo got all hot and bothered about the New York Times's article on Sriracha sauce, pointing out that the paper's coverage of Vietnamese food trends is a tad behind the times, to say the least. Seven years, no less.
