Flirting with sushi Beyond big cities, sushi was slow to catch on. Corson recalls a bunch of fishermen in Maine, where he lived, hanging a “sushi restaurant” sign on their bait shed. “From their point of view, eating raw fish was a stupid, gross thing,” he says. Yet when the owners of 39 Rue de […]

If interior design doesn’t get you going, chef Aaron Lemieux posted some food porn from the Chicco’s kitchen on his Instagram account. Chef Lemieux moved from French bistro Rue de Jean, another HCH […]
