FEATURES
Holiday Entertaining

Tapas Talk Big new tastes -- Asian, French, American -- are coming on small plates, as chefs around the city improvise on a Spanish theme.

Food Fête Andy Arons, a proprietor of Gourmet Garage, throws a dinner party where cooking (by top city chefs) is part of the entertainment. Cakes Alive Layer cakes, new takes on old standbys, are infiltrating some of the city's most stylish menus. We sampled the goods and crowned the top three. Spirit World In the era of Cosmopolitans just past, venerable beverages like brandy and scotch were left by the wayside -- and aging has made them even better.
