Welcome back to our monthly roundup of the most read stories on Bridgetown Bites. I must thank Michael Russell of The Oregonian for linking to my post about Chin’s Kitchen from their article, Chin’s Kitchen closes temporarily after surge in business. A lot of folks came by as a result.
So without further ado, here are the top 5 posts on Bridgetown Bites from November 2017. As always, thanks for reading!
Each day for the past couple of weeks, I’ve walked into my local Trader Joe’s on the way home from the gym, hoping to see the arrival of one of their most delicious products, Cranberry Fest cold pressed juice. I’m happy—no, thrilled—to say: it’s back!

Earlier this week, Esquire published an article by Amanda Cohen, executive chef and owner of NYC’s Dirt Candy, one of the most influential vegetable-focused restaurants in the US. In the article, I’ve Worked in Food for 20 Years.

Yesterday was the first day Sizzle Pie Hollywood was open (soft opening), so we headed over for some slices—and to check out the space. Turns out they didn’t do any kind of major overhaul, but the place feels more spacious, fresher, neater. I was told that it took about a month and half to get it all spruced up.
On my way to the gym today, I passed by Chin’s Kitchen, like I often do, and found this sign up on the window.
