News & Notes
• Susanna Foo enjoys another 15 minutes of fame on Nov. 6, when the Travel Channel’s Epicurious features Thanksgiving dinner at her home. On the menu: Nanking brine-marinated turkey stuffed with five-spice treasure sweet rice and Chinese sausage; fuyu persimmon and baby spinach salad; and kabocha (Japanese pumpkin) squash.
• Iron Hill Brewery and Restaurant turns 10 years old this month, and to celebrate, they’re introducing two new brews: Westmalle 10 Belgian Abbey Style Ale, its first-ever bottled beer and a collaboration between Iron Hill founders Kevin Finn, Kevin Davies and Mark Edelson; and Rochefort 10, a Belgian-style Trappist ale with an alcohol content of more than a whopping 10 percent.
• Construction workers and a bright orange liquor license are transforming the former Finnarin and Haley paint store next to Teresa’s Café in Wayne, and restaurateur Mike Ellis is quietly beaming. His second venue is slated for a mid- to late-November opening, but for now his lips are sealed. The new restaurant will be a separate venture, and Teresa’s will remain BYO (though a limited bottled wine selection will be available for empty-handed diners).
