Like most of the burgers at Eureka! that one is beef; the Bison Burger ($16) is an appealing alternative. Bison is being widely farm raised and becoming more popular with restaurants for its comparatively low fat level and flavor only slightly more earthy than beef. The broiled green, red and yellow bell pepper strips and grilled red onion that topped it provided a fresh balance to the meat; the bacon jalapeno jam overshadowed the rest, although it was easily scraped off..
On the eve of the 9/11 attacks in New York, the grape vines and mulberry trees here, the livelihood of generations, lay cut down forgotten like the country itself. Most of the homes on both sides of the highway were nothing but debris.

Beginning with Charles Darwin (1809 82) immediately after touching upon Malthusian concepts is appropriate. After all, Darwin in his book, The Descent of Man, explained that our ‘sympathy’ was what was responsible for the ‘weak surviving and propagating their kind’.

P de Rozas gave Loewe its creative lead from 1945 to ’78, years that encompass the aftermath of a bloody civil war and a long, dark dictatorship that ended with the death of Generalissimo Francisco Franco in 1975. It is difficult now, when one strolls through the bustling streets of stately yet lively Madrid, its side alleys full of restaurants with bright tiled walls and bars that, even midweek, are abuzz way past midnight, to imagine what this city and Loewe has survived.
