5@5 is a daily, food-related list from chefs, writers, political pundits, musicians, actors, and all manner of opinionated people from around the globe.

First, the dining trend was farm-to-table. Then, it went to roof-to-table. Now, it may be garden-to-bar's turn - at least according to the fine folks manning the libations at the PRESS Lounge in New York City.

Notes from Zone 6b - Tubers on the roof
