Five Bites On Friday

In today's edition of Five Bites, Jackie Whisman confesses she can't go an entire month without the following:

1. Shrimp cakes at Thai Tanic

2. Htipiti (red pepper and feta spread) at Zaytinya (pictured)

3. Peanut butter cookies and cream ice cream at Gifford's

4. Mini trio appetizer — two seared scallops, two mini burgers and two crab cakes — at Matchbox

5. Cheese puffs at Central
