Canton’s Verde launches brunch service

Anything you can put on a bagel or an English muffin you can put on Neapolitan pizza dough. That’s the thinking behind Pizza Verde’s new brunch, which opened last weekend.

Charmery partners with Union Brewery for IPA-flavored ice cream

It isn’t the ice cream itself that gets David Alima jazzed, it’s rubbing elbows with the other purveyors in the ‘hood who he considers “genius.” The Charmery co-owner’s most recent collaboration, with Jon Zerivitz, brewmaster at Union Craft Brewery, yielded an India Pale Ale-flavored ice cream with a tart aftertaste. “I asked Jon about...

When the French peasants, workers and revolutionaries stormed the Bastille in 1789 shouting Liberté! Egalité! Fraternité! it’s unlikely that any in the mob realized that their cries would morph over the next couple of centuries to become champagne toasts for well-heeled francophiles on Bastille Day, which comes tomorrow, Sunday, July 14.
