A bearded townhouse, in the west 70s, I think.

My best friend bought a Vespa at the beginning of summer.

You should try a BLTD while there are still good tomatoes around. This sandwich was inspired by the pork belly bacon from Dickson's Farmstand Meats in Chelsea Market, which is great but a little salty. A layer of sliced Medjool dates underneath balances things perfectly.

ma-la hotdog
Also recommended, sort of a ma-la hotdog:
Dickson's lamb and beef sausage with Sichuan pepper + spicy cabbage and carrot slaw 
(dressed with Kewpie mayo, rice vinegar, more Sichuan pepper, red pepper flakes).

red currant / blueberry / black cardamom scone
Not recommended just yet: My blueberry / red currant / black cardamom scones
need a little more work. Remind me next summer.

avocado squash
Thinly sliced and properly dressed — with a little olive oil, lime juice and salt  avocado squashes taste almost exactly like actual avocados.
