Pete Wells ponders Italian-American cuisine at Parm in New York, which he gives two stars. Julia Kramer finds flawless tasting menus that lack personality at Goosefoot in Chicago. Jonathan Kauffman finds that if house-made pantry items are the hallmark of "true" food, "the fare at Izakaya Yuzuki, a 2-month-old restaurant in [San Francisco], are as true as Raymond Carver stories."
