What We're Drinking



The Freewheel line with a couple of English friends.

It takes a lot of beer to keep the wine business running smoothly. Here in Redwood City, we are very fortunate to have a great English style ale producer right in our backyard: Freewheel Brewing Company. The staff of K&L are fictures at our local pub, and it is a rare moment when one of us isn't there having a pint and a bite of their excellent food. We are also lucky enough to be the first place to offer their bottled beer for sale. If you have never had it, the Freewheel Brewing "FSB" Freewheel Special Bitter, California (500ml) is the benchmark in fresh, balanced, smashable ale. We will do our best to keep some in stock for you, the customer too!

More Paris Recommendations 

Editor's Note: Our fearless leader, Clyde Beffa, left for VinExpo yesterday and is slowly winding his way toward Bordeaux to taste the 2008 vintage wines. He's sending updates on the restaurants and hotels he discovers along the way. If you're planning a trip to Paris, start here. Then, read Clyde's recommendations here, from his last big trip.

Ate lunch today at La Rotisserie d'en Face in the 6th Arrondissement. 2 rue Christine 75006 Paris. Tel. 01 43 26 40 98 Quite nice and not too pricey. Try their roast chicken with heavenly mashed potatoes. Email

Tonight I head to Michelin-starred Restaurant Jacques Cagna across the street. Superb value. Only dinner where my wife, Kay, oders foie gras and I don't. We did the gourmet menu for 100 Euro (four courses, though they served six). All very good. The trotters were sans hooves, just calories wrapped with bacon. Great John Dory and excellent quenelles of bass. Wine: Good news, Daugenau for 40 Euros, bad news 2007 Serge Daugenau, fine. 1999 Poujeaux was heavenly, sweet and delicious. 14 rue des grands Augustins 75006 Paris. Tel. 01 43 26 49 39

Also, try Cafe Laurent  in the Hotel d'Aubusson. It's been there since 1690 and known for its Jazz club. Very American-friendly, fabulous location. A bit pricey but worth it. 33 rue Dauphine 75006 Paris. Tel 01 43 29 43 43. Email
