Making a "Killing"

by Ben Westhoff | Houston magazine | April 28, 2011
Houston native Mireille Enos depicted twin sisters on HBO’s polygamy drama Big Love, but playing the lead role in AMC’s new series The Killing is her biggest challenge yet. Enos stars as a detective who investigates the murder of a teenage girl over 13 gut-wrenching, real-time episodes.    It’s an exciting time off-screen too, as last fall Enos and hubby Alan Ruck—yes, Cameron in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off—welcomed their first child together, daughter Vesper.

He’s done it again. With Playa, John Sedlar has proved once more that he’s among the most important chefs of our time. Not because he’s infallible or because every dish is perfect. And certainly not because he’s been on TV. But because he’s a true visionary who’s created yet another immensely interesting and highly original restaurant using flavors that are for the most part familiar.

Eataly is one sexy beast. Ever since Joe Bastianich and Mario Batali opened the cavernous Italian food hall near Madison Square Park last summer, the panini-spewing, Prosecco-spraying behemoth has been feeding—and feeding on—New York’s food-obsessed lemmings, who’ve flocked to the 42,000-square-foot space with the promise of all great things edible and Italian under one roof. You shop for the finest raw ingredients, and pizzas, pastas, gelati, coffee and pastries can be consumed on the spot. The place is loud, crowded and a lot of fun.

Back in the High Life?

On February 2, the 3,450-square-foot penthouse of the new Chelsea Enclave on Ninth Avenue between 20th and 21st streets sold for $9.5 million. Its well-heeled residents will enjoy floor-to-ceiling windows with unobstructed views to the south, west and north. On breezy summer nights they might fix cocktails on the black granite countertops of their custom Alan Wanzenberg kitchen and enjoy them with friends on their private 2,000-square-foot wraparound terrace.

Restaurants 3.0

A lot can happen in a year. Less than 12 months ago, restaurateur Hilda Staples had one restaurant, Frederick’s Volt, which she co-owns with Top Chef finalist Bryan Voltaggio. Now, Staples has an ownership stake in two of this year’s most anticipated new restaurants: Rogue 24 by R.J. Cooper and Graffiato by Top Chef All-Stars runner-up Mike Isabella. This might seem stunning, but for Washington’s current unprecedented restaurant renaissance.
