In this week's reviews: An appalled Gael Greene is told the lack of tulips at New York's Bread & Tulips is due to their being out of season: ("'But they must be in season somewhere.' ''We try to be local.' He responds with pride and finality, as if that explains everything").
Elsewhere, Julia Kramer gives four out of five stars to suburban secret Autre Monde outside of Chicago and Victoria Pesce Elliott gives three and a half stars to Geoffrey Zakarian's new Miami restaurant, Tudor House. Also, Michael Bauer reviews the seemingly unpronounceable Txoko in San Francisco.
