Best meal I ever ate:
Pretty much whatever my wife is cooking. Oh, you mean in a restaurant? That would be a special dinner arranged by Macmillan Publishing Co. years ago at Charlie Trotter's. Multiple courses each with a special wine pairing. Really exceptional.
My current drink of choice:
What are you pouring?
