Good wines. Very good prices. At this San Miguel restaurant.

If you skip the social aspects, there are two reasons why I go out to a restaurant. To eat and to drink. And, to me, the second is almost as important as the first. For, on most occasions, as the 19th Century French gastronome Brillat-Savarin said, a meal without wine...

Second time’s a charm for Orchidea.

There used to be only one Thai restaurant in San Miguel de Allende. Now there are two. Well sort of. You see Orchidea Thai has opened a second location. Up on the hill. Up on Salida Real a Queretaro. Up where I live. A location that I can walk to. With the slightly...

The very best restaurant in San Miguel de Allende.

You don’t have to be Jewish to like Deli Man.

You don’t have to be Jewish to like Deli Man.
