SATURDAY
After the cottage cheese at the house, the rest of the day is a bit foggy. Lots of random sampling and snacking around the kitchen, but I saved room for the chicken Tetrazzini by my wife — she's the one who buys the groceries and does the cooking at home. The rest of the Ben & Jerry's and a couple of glasses of red wine.

SUNDAY
Off, and celebrating the wife's birthday with some family and friends. But first, two slices of Pizzeria Regina on the way, then a big spread at the house of hummus, tomato salad, eggplant, grilled burgers, and salmon en papillote with wine, followed with clafoutis and a scoop of ice cream.

MONDAY
After sleeping in, we rallied and made tuna-fish sandwiches, soft scrambled eggs with the rest of the tomato, and eggplant from our friend's garden. Later that evening, over to Chinatown for more pho soup and a few dumplings from the Gourmet Dumpling House. Again, delicious!

WEST BRIDGE 1 KENDALL SQUARE, CAMBRIDGE:: 617.945.0221
You won't find Cheerios on the menu at West Bridge, which opened in May in Kendall Square. You will, however, find less off-the-shelf fare like Gaudet's egg in a jar, a mini mason jar filled with creamy poached duck egg and pomme puree, layered with hen-of-the-woods mushrooms and topped with crisp bits of chicken skin. Wash it down with the on-tap prosecco or a creative cocktail, like our favorite, the Conant's Island, a bracing blend of house-infused cucumber vodka, rice-wine vinegar, and green Tabasco.

    We've all been told that once upon a time, angry Bostonians dumped three shiploads of English tea in the harbor to protest taxes, but let's be real here — it was probably just really shitty tea, and they were doing what any of us would do when continually plied with subpar beverage choices.
