Small Bites

- The number of Korean greengrocers in New York has declined.

- Danny Meyer hoped never to have to close a restaurant, but unfortunately he had to do just that at the end of last year when Tabla shut its doors. Meyer talked about the how and why of the closing.

- Some chefs conceive of their dishes through sketching. Saveur showcases some sketches by Grant Achatz of Alinea and Michael Laiskonis, Le Bernardin's pastry chef, alongside images of the final products.
- Those with food addiction have to deal not only with their eating issues, but also with the idea that not everyone believes food addiction is a legitimate problem.

- Food makers establish their own nutrition labeling system after disagreeing with the F.D.A over what the labels should highlight.

- Bad service during a recent meal at a new restaurant reinforces for the Village Voice's restaurant critic just how important service is (and just how many places fail to execute it properly).
