What's the country reading today food-wise? Here's a roundup of some of the food-related stories from other newspapers, many of which print their food sections mid-week. And remember, even if you don't actually buy papers these days (or not; this paper is free), it's where most of your content comes from. Surf away. Just remember that spilling your macchiato over your keyboard is a lot more expensive than spilling it across newsprint.

In the Los Angeles Times, S. Irene Virbila considers Sunday night restaurant dining; a profile of the women behind the as-yet-unopened Lindy & Grundy's butcher shop; and checking out the new Afghan restaurant Chili Chutney in Lake Forest.

The New York Times looks at the results of New York City's new restaurant letter grading system; home cooking, even organic home cooking, for your pets; and checking out 2008 Oregon pinot noir.

At the Chicago Sun-Times, a look at the at The Showgirl Diet; and rooting for winter vegetables.

Area chefs put their own spin on the Vietnamese noodle soup pho; and using hay (yes, hay) to smoke meats and other foods indoors, at The Washington Post.

At The Dallas Morning News, what the future Mrs. Tony Romo will be cooking for Super Bowl Sunday. (Yes, she eats; no, the Cowboys are not playing.)

Keeping New Year's Resolutions by going vegetarian; and how big pizza companies are making profits by making more than pizza, at The Denver Post.

At The Miami Herald, keeping the Mayan art of making chocolate alive in rural Guatemala.

The Boston Globe polls area chefs on what trends to expect in 2011; and a Q & A with sake expert Richard Auffrey.

  • Malibu Pier Restaurant and Bar
    Malibu Pier Restaurant and Bar, with chef Jason Fullilove at the helm, is in the two buildings at the pier’s entrance that used to be Beachcomber Cafe and Ruby’s Diner. Those buildings, which have been overhauled completely, reflect both the pier’s 109-year-old history and the cultural import of Malibu itself.
  • The Tasting Menu Trend
    In Los Angeles especially, but increasingly across the country, restaurants are either switching to tasting menus, putting a greater focus on a tasting-menu option (while offering à la carte items as well), or opening as tasting-menu operations from day one. The format that used to be the calling card of only the fanciest of restaurants is becoming ubiquitous, even at places where the waiter calls you “dude” and there isn’t a white tablecloth in sight.
  • Milo's Kitchen: A Treat Truck for Dogs
    Milo's Kitchen, a part of California-based Big Heart Pet Brands, is taking its homestyle dog treats on the road this summer with the "Treat Truck." The dogified food truck is making stops all over the country, ending up in New York early September. The truck stopped at Redondo Beach Dog Park Friday morning entertaining the pups with treats, a photo-booth and play zone. Milo's Kitchen Treat Truck offered samples of the line's six flavors, all with chicken or beef as the first ingredient, and all made in the U.S.A. with no artificial colors or preservatives.
