This week in Food & Drink Anne Spiselman looked in on the massive olive-curing operation at the Ukrainian Village's wonderful northern Italian stalwart A Tavola, plus there are 16 regional Italian spots in the listings.

And a bonus over at the Straight Dope: our pal Cecil spelunks the history of Italian beef, and outlines an ambitious expansion plan afoot at Al's #1.

By the way, have you noticed how good the photos have looked in Food & Drink and Omnivorous lately? That's because they've all been shot by longtime Reader contributor and shameless food pornographer Eric Futran. Goddamn, look at those olives.
