Here are some daily foodie reads: Josh Sens reviews Boxing Room in Hayes Valley, Jonathan Kauffman reviews Red Tavern on Clement, Bon Appetit finds the greatest wine glass you’ll ever drink from, some LA guy ate at every single Zagat restaurant … and more.

From the local scene:

  • Josh Sens reviews Boxing Room: “Hardly does a Southern mainstay get left out—or mistreated … The well-crafted cuisine, imported from a region that, for all its fame, is underrepresented in San Francisco restaurants, shines against a bright California backdrop. Even if you’ve suffered through a mournful workday, you leave Boxing Room in lighter spirits, a jazzy spring and rhythm in your step.” [San Francisco Magazine]
  • Self-checkout alcohol sales at grocery stores might be a goner. [SF Examiner]
  • Jonathan Kauffman reviews Red Tavern, a Russian/Continental restaurant in the Richmond:  “After two solid dinners that left me enthusiastic about the place and a third, punishingly mediocre one, I’d have to conclude that the food zigzags from the good to the odd, but the meal is rarely boring.” [SF Weekly]

From the national scene:

  • Is this the greatest wine glass of our time? Adam Rapoport thinks so. [Bon Appetit]
  • Big Ag is getting angry about all this bad publicity! [New York Times]
  • Tom Sietsema approves of Chipotle’s new Asian endeavor, ShopHouse: “As young as it is, however, ShopHouse tastes like it’s on the fast track to success.” [Washington Post]
  • Chefs love chicken skin. [New York Times]
  • This guy ate at all 2,000 restaurants in the Los Angeles Zagat Guide. [CNN]
  • Vintage culinary gadget fails, like wind-up spaghetti fork and the butter sleeve protector. [HuffPo]
