FOOD- Chow down! Welcome to the Monthly Meal Plan

Each week in the Hook readers find the latest and greatest 0fferings of our local restaurant scene in our Food Finder section and in Dave McNair's column, "The Dish." Extensive as that food coverage is, it's but a single helping next to the all-you-can-read smorgasbord that is our new Monthly Meal Plan.

Inside, we serve up not only "The Dish," but also an expanded Food Finder featuring all our area restaurant listings. And if that weren't enough to fill your literary belly, dessert comes in the form of our new feature, "Kitchen Confidential," wherein area chefs and restaurateurs reveal the secrets of their trade and explain how to make their signature dishes at home.

So whether it's burgers or bouillabaisse, your server  will always be the Monthly Meal Plan.
