Burgundy by the Sea

The self-styled French Culinary Capital of the West Indies, St. Barts, will be paying gastronomic homage to its motherland in a 10-day-long islandwide festival beginning on May 1. Nearly every St. Barts restaurant and hotel will be featuring French food and wine, not to mention special appearances by some of France's most famous chefs and winemakers. For information, call 800-932-3222.


Some of the brightest stars in Los Angeles never show up on the silver screen but labor over a hot stove instead. Chef Tara Thomas at the new Traxx is one, and Gino Angelini at the recently opened Vincenti Ristorante is another. Meanwhile, chef Celestino Drago is about to mount a fourth production, L'Arancino, featuring his favorite Sicilian street food.
