Faute de mieux

Los Angeles, September 8, 2017—

THERE ARE TIMES when you just have to suck it up and make the best of it. Giovanna always says if you can't do better, a chocolate bar and a beer will do. I guess I'm a little more health-conscious, having a generation of years on her.

After looking over the menu, I settled on a Martini and a Caesar salad. The salad wasn't authentic — no anchovies graced the plate, though some sort of ground anchovy may have been present in the dressing. Nor was there raw egg, which I count on, on evenings like this, for protein.

Still hungry, I ordered the plate of hummus, raw carrot and celery, and pita that had constituted the Contessa's dinner, along with a Margarita.
