"More sustaining than meat"
I am watching for a copy of Helfand's book Scrapbook on sale - saw it at someone's house and found myself wanting to spend much more time in its perusal.
Speaking of books, finally, after odd roadblocks, got New Moon, and can't put it down.
Though I find Bella's whines irritate me no end. . .

The hostess was sweet - she let me abscond with a menu. It's a replica of an illustration created for the original restaurant - couldn't fit the entire image on my scanner.

In its prime, Steuben's was the center of the Boston dining and nightlife scene.
