Baths of the Year: California Calm

Flower power was groovy in 1969. Perhaps that was the reason the master bath of Kristin Gillespie and Christopher Stayzak’s 1969 Point Loma home had walls slathered in floral prints.

Restaurant Review: Sausage & Meat

Slater’s 50/50 is a popular casual restaurant where the featured burgers are 50 percent beef and 50 percent bacon and the atmosphere occasionally resembles a frat-house party. So it’s a little surprising that Slater’s parent group opened a rather serious foray into the hyper-carnivorous lifestyle.

Ahi Tuna Crudo

Russell Rummer, executive chef of Croce’s Park West, brings color and texture to the plate with this Ahi Tuna Crudo. The variety of flavors in each bite will have your taste buds wanting more.
