Sophistication is the name of the game at Zambrano.

Fine Vintage

Cef Zambrano’s downtown bar and restaurant has withstood the test of time – and road construction.
LAURIE JAMES
Former Chow, Baby columnist Christy Goldfinch had a well-documented crush on restaurateur Cef Zambrano, who opened his eponymous wine bar/restaurant downtown in 2007. But the tides of fortune — and the ebb and flow of road co...

R Bar & Grill: Your Destination

Located in the Arlington Hilton, chef Michael West’s baby is elegant and tasty.
LAURIE JAMES
Over the years, the Arlington Hilton Hotel has been home to several ground-level bars. Most of them, including the late, not-too-lamented September’s Lounge, were known more for cocktails and hookups than food. Enter: baby-fa...

Kona Grill is all over the map, from Hawaii to China, good to bad.
LAURIE JAMES
Kona Grill offers a staggering array of choices, from sushi to satay and bulgogi to a variety of meats augmented with pineapple or macadamia nuts. But Kona is not just a pan-Asian place with a little Hawaiian/Polynesian flair. ...

World Cup o’ Brew

LAST CALL

The Rocket Recommends

CHOW, BABY
I just assume everyone else anthropomorphizes their cars. My chariot, the Korean rocket (she’ll also answer to Rocky and K-Rock) knows me pretty well. So when it’s time to go food exploring, I just hold the wheel and let he...

Sic Transit Gloria Foodie

CHOW, BABY
For the last week or so, Chow Baby has been moping around like Eeyore with serious first-world problems. That’s the phrase that Chow, Niece taught me when I was moaning about how cruel it was that Siri, the tiny sedate-soundi...



Strawberry cheesecake in a cone (center) isn’t all that surprising, but buffalo chicken (left) and pulled pork make a major statement at Epic Cones. Lee Chastain

Epic Cones: Fun and Filling

Pizza, barbecue, and more American faves come in a doughy, hearty cone here.

Chow, Lion in the Chow Line

CHOW, BABY
If Chow, Baby had its way, it would dine out almost every night of the week, instead of mostly for lunch and on weekends. Nothing against cooking at home, it’s just that there’s so much to sample in Fort Foodie these days. ...

Cane Rosso: Simple, Traditional

Nobody’s doing pizza like this new eatery, but is it worth it?
LAURIE JAMES
How do you define what makes a good pizza? Do you like yours Chicago-style, deep enough to fill a cast-iron skillet? Thin and floppy? Drenched in sauce or dripping with cheese? At Cane Rosso’s third location, its first in For...

Praying for Pizza

CHOW, BABY
A few years ago the restaurants gods apparently decided this city didn’t have enough pizza options. In their infinite wisdom, they bestowed on us, first, Fireside Pies (2949 Crockett St.), with its ambrosial pizza, starters, ...
