This week, Food & Nightlife writer Jessica Gelt profiles Full of Life Flatbread and its owner and chef, Clark Staub. An excerpt: Can a restaurant be too busy? In the case of Full of Life Flatbread in Los Alamos, Calif., the answer is maybe. That's because on weekend nights the place can pull in hundreds of people from all over the state and the world who are happy to wait in line for as long as two hours to get a taste of the restaurant's hyper-local, organic fare. Nestled in an idyllic sweet spot in the middle of Santa Barbara wine country, just off Highway 101 between Los Angeles and San Luis Obispo, Full of Life is at the vortex of a well-traveled food-and-wine pilgrimage route.

Most of our Thanksgiving menus are so time-honored they might as well have been written in stone. And we respect that. It is, after all, our one national food holiday. And cooking the same dishes our parents and grandparents did provides a very concrete tie to family traditions. But sometimes you want to just tweak a little at the edges to make those dishes your own, and maybe start a new holiday tradition. Working within the hallowed framework of turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy and cranberries, we've come up with some suggestions to get you started.
