R.I.P. Yankee Doodle

Truly sad news in New Haven today. One of my favorite restaurants of all time, the Yankee Doodle, has closed after 57 years. Article from the Yale Daily News here.

It is a dark day. Never again the grilled donut. Never again the two-cheese-two-pig lunch. My arteries celebrate; my taste buds weep.

Thank You For Your Patience I settle down from several months of house craziness, holiday festivity, and promotion file panic. Now I can take a deep breath and tell you: EXCELLENT new cheese store in New Haven! Best pancakes in Connecticut discovered in Westbrook! Oyster glove inauguration on Christmas Eve! Dried hibiscus flowers in Champagne: delicious!

Hello to all the readers who've just discovered this, and hello to the remaining few of you who actually check this blog for updates occasionally. New year, new posts.

On that note, though, I must sheepishly say that I'll be away for the next week. Will come back to regale you with tales of old and new favorites in Miami.
