What do Itzhak Perlman, Kenny G, Cher, Lady Gaga and Toni Braxton all have in common besides being famous musicians?

California ‘Soul Food’

A trusted friend raved about Circa, a University Heights restaurant which recently celebrated their first anniversary, and I eagerly anticipated being seated one memorable evening. Sometimes a food column’s word count limit can be frustrating, and this is one of those occasions. Because there isn’t enough space to describe how the experience met and exceeded [...]
