Richard Blumenthal's new legislation aimed at establishing a uniform federal food dating system.Food bank officials, environmentalists, academics and food industry representatives met to support U.

Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) will announce new legislation to reform and streamline confusing and misleading food date labels that contribute to the waste of 160 billions of pounds of food each year, driving up consumer costs and filling landfills with perfectly edible food.The French-inspired décor is quirky and pretty –think gauzy curtains, chandeliers, fairy lights, a spot of fuchsia furnishing and an entire wall of crumbling vintage suitcases.Chef Irfan Pabaney's food is largely European with a touch of whimsy, so you taste deliciously odd dishes such as roasted red grape and beer ricotta in ragi baguette and braised sesame and anise pork belly.
