Yes, Restaurants of the Year are usually about what's new.  We caught up with The Oregonian's Michael Russell to see how he thinks his ROY picks have stood the test of time. This week's Soundbite.

#87 Brian Spangler - Apizza Scholls (w/Janis Martin)

Brian Spangler's ascension into the psyche of Portland through his acclaimed and loved pizza started with the dough, learning how to bake in northern California while in college.  That led him to buy an Oregon Farm, the Portland Farmers Market, a pub, and then to Hawthorne Blvd.  He shares his story and Chick Fil A sandwiches with us, which for this episode, includes his friend Janis Martin of Tanuki sitting in to join in the conversation.

Janis Martin has an opinion or two, and we're glad she stopped into Right at the Fork to share a couple.  She'd really like you to know what Tanuki isn't, and is, before you step into the cauldron of Janis.  So listen up.  We warned you.
