The Guzman siblings used to knead and bake sweet, nutty pan de fiesta to sell at festivals in their home town of Tlaxcala, Mexico.

When they moved to New Haven, they brought the party to Grand Avenue.

Dragging Herself To Brunch

by Lucy Gellman | Jun 19, 2015 1:06 pm | Comments (2)

“I love making people laugh ... in the back of all my hijinks and hilarities, you’re gong to just feel better about yourself,” said Shawn Bodey, sipping his coffee on a recent morning at Cafe Romeo. At his sandaled feet, his dog Soul searched for loose toast crumbs, settling under the table after he had found a few. Bodey pulled down his sunglasses, adjusted his plaid overshirt, and looked up at the sky, an unadulterated shade of New Haven blue with a few cloudy wisps floating past.

Markeshia Ricks Photo The fish was splayed on the cutting board as though given wings. But with its missing head, the only thing it was flying toward was a vat of hot oil.

Bun Lai Previews The Food Of The Future

by Brian Slattery | Jun 15, 2015 11:23 am

“I think the creative process is connected to a little bit of messiness,” Bun Lai, chef and mastermind behind Miya’s Sushi, said at the beginning of the evening. “What I imagined this event was going to look like is nothing like what it’s likely to turn out to be. It’s going to be pretty interesting.”

Call Him The Negroni Master

by Lucy Gellman | Jun 4, 2015 2:40 pm | Comments (1)

Lucy Gellman Photo John Ginnetti doesn’t mess around behind the incandescent, butter-colored bar at 116 Crown. The first time I met him, he was walking me through the recipe for a Dominant Tonic and — unbeknownst to my trusty new employer Paul Bass — I walked into not one, but two, stationary objects on my way home before pounding out a story.

There are two possibilities here. The first is that I am both petite and getting old, and can no longer gallivant around bars with the abandon of my early twenties. The second, which I tend to prefer, is that Ginnetti is a wizard, and makes a mean magic brew.

From Arroz Con Gandules To “Malta Goya!”

by Eva Geertz | Jun 2, 2015 12:28 pm | Comments (7)

Eva Geertz Photo A month ago, Fair Haven activist Lee Cruz led 20 lucky ticket-holders on a gastronomic tour of Grand Avenue. The event was hugely overbooked; Cruz responded by scheduling additional tours. On Saturday, as part of the International Festival of Arts & Ideas Fair Haven pop-up festival, he led a family-friendly (boozeless) version down Grand Avenue.

Food Truck Festival Delights (And Stuffs) The Stomach

by Brian Slattery | May 30, 2015 10:05 pm | Comments (12)

Brian Slattery Photo I skipped breakfast Saturday for the first of the two days of an inaugural New Haven Food Truck Festival, held all along the Long Wharf waterfront. In anticipation of barbecue, I wore a brown T-shirt to mitigate the damage when I got sauce all over myself while eating ribs. And I brought along Leo, my son and eater-in-crime, to make sure we sampled as much food — and as many rides — as possible.
