I could be telling you about how thrilled I was to get on the scale yesterday after my Monday squash game to find that I am now down 22 pounds (It's probably more like 18 pounds when you factor in the water weight I lost playing squash). But you're probably bored with that subject already. So I am going to switch gears and get back to what I do best, turning people on to the best food I've tasted AND the best eating advice from other writers I know and trust. A friend of mine just called for eating advice in Venice. In the October 2005 Travel + Leisure Gael Greene wrote a terrific guide to eating in Venice. Gael is generally right on the money when it comes to restaurants (especially upscale restaurants), and she is a terrific writer, so if you're planning a trip to Venice this is the one guide you need to have. Gael always makes eating sound like such sexy and pleasurable fun, which it is. In my experience (three trips to Venice) her take here is generally spot on, though I think she overrates Fiaschetteria Toscana. I have always had really snooty service there and pretty good though not extraordinary food.
