Jules is back... (and more on Tides)

You may have noticed a bit of a hiccup in Eat at Jules'. This wacky "blogging" phenomenon has been a bit of a challenge for this working gal (no, not "working gal" in the colloquial sense). There have been changes afoot in my professional non-eating life that have made it tough for me to indulge my passion for eating and writing about it. But I'm back with a renewed commitment (for now, at least) to digesting my meals online, so to speak. (That's much less ew than it sounds, I promise).

Let's start with a mention of a restaurant I've written about before, and one of my perennial favorites: Tides. This pocket-sized seafood place never disappoints Mr. H and I. On a visit last week, we had some of their amazing bouillabaisse, which I remembered sampling last winter. It really hits the spot on a blustery night: rich, tomato-y broth with a generous variety of seafood: lobster, scallops, clams, mussels, shrimp, squid and fish. We'd started with a plate of simple yet well-grilled and salted vegetables, and had of course a couple of glasses from their very brief but strong wine list.
