So, you’re in the restaurant, the family and the kids. Everybody is behaving well, speaking in “inside voices,” including the adults.

The kids take one peek at the menu and look as if they’re beginning to tune up: “Mom, Dad, we hate tilapia with Southwestern succotash and mango-jicama relish!” Mom says, hopefully, “Look, Dick, look, Jane, there’s a kid’s menu! You love kid’s menus!” Signaling the helpful waiter for another martini.

Food and I go way back. Restaurants and I, on the other hand, had only a distant acquaintance during my childhood, in Rochester, N.Y., where I spend my first 10 years, and in Memphis, the city we adopted in 1955. The history of my involvement with restaurants, therefore, and with writing about restaurants and reviewing them, was not inculcated during my formative years. Going out to eat, for my family, was a ritual rarely indulged, an occasion of magical importance.

59. A Bridge to Cross -
