Read bio, recent columns | Check out his book on local restaurants

Note from Craig LaBan: This chat is intended to delve into the finer points of the local restaurant scene, from what’s new and exciting, to digressions on everything from dim-sum to date restaurants. We will also review highlights from my previous week’s menu with the Crumb Tracker Quiz. Please, let’s not get bogged down in concierge-like - “Where should I take my girlfriend for dinner this weekend?” - queries. Feel free to share your own dining experiences, but no anonymous bashing. If you have something critical to say, you must sign the comment with your own name. I do!

This week:  On Oct. 4, he will be joined by Patrick Feury of Nectar, Andy Dickerson of Teresa’s Next Door, and Evan Lambert of Savona.
