TIBET IN SHANGHAI. Recently, I had the good fortune of spending a few days in Shanghai, China. A city of 24 million inhabitants, spread over nearly 2,500 square miles, Shanghai, is impossible to explore, but its "heart", on the Bund along the shores of the Huangpu River, is a must for visitors and gourmands.
NEW YORK "CAPUT MUNDI". Much as Rome was once "caput mundi" - the world's capital - there is no doubt that New York now covers that role. A world-class business and tourist destination, New York is literally deluged with restaurants and cafes of all stripes. One of my favorites, quite appropriately, is a Roman restaurant.
