Dining Guide

Pepper Twins

How can we not love this new Cooking Girl spin-off when dishes have names like Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Fish Swimming in Pickle, and Tofu Smiles With Wood Ear? Plus, the setting is bright and cheery, the staff able and obliging, and the food fresh and well sourced (Berkshire pork, Red Mountain chicken). Recent highlights? Tender lamb morsels with sweet peppers and cumin, crisp sautéed dry green beans, chicken with little sprigs of Sichuan peppercorn that left a slow, pleasant burn with each taste, and Soft Square Bacon—pork belly relished by one of us but deemed too fatty by another. Fried rice with chicken, often a cliché, came fluffy and almost yeasty, loaded with tender chunks of chicken. One of us lauded Fish Loves Tofu, but the other found the fish too salty.
