My new book, “Those Immigrants!” will be published in a few weeks, and a few weeks after that my new booklet, “The Artisans of Yamanaka,” will be published. It’s been a frenetic winter and spring without much sustained order so it’s nice to see work appearing outside of the screen of this laptop.
Then, too, the top secret project on ryokans and restaurants in Japan will be out in June or maybe July, and my guide to Japan was in The Boston Globe two weeks ago.
That leaves the glorious edits and revisions of a book I’m puzzled by, and a proposal for a long work on race riots.
There is still time to eat, which in Boston means Giulia or Babbo Pizzeria & Enoteca or Night Market. While in NYC, most recently, we’re talking favorites: Brandy Library, Batard, Il Buco di Alimentari, Rubirosa, Russ & Daughters, and Esca, with new places: Le Coq Rico and I Sodi.
