As you can imagine, Holy City Sinner gets inundated with press releases and information - especially from the food and beverage community. I created the "Leftovers" series to ensure I could share as much food and bev news as possible.

  2. The Old Village Post House Inn announced that they have new fall brunch and dinner menus courtesy of the restaurant’s new Executive Chef Robyn Guisto, formerly of Halls Chophouse. The dinner includes: Crab Crusted Salmon, Sweet Potato Gnocchi with spinach, dried cherries and goat cheese, Lobster Risotto with parmesan in a saffron broth, and new selections of premium USDA wet- and dry-aged steaks and chops.
