"When I go into the city for wine tasting events with my sommelier team, we take the ferry (the truly civilized way to do this) and snag an early lunch table at The Slanted Door. While I always find some new tasty treats, it’s the simple stuff they do—like these chewy, umami-infused daikon cakes—that get me Jonesin' every time."
