The dark side of Portuguese dining

Our latest column from William Thomas “So, Francisco, what’s your favourite restaurant?” Francisco is the maintenance man at the Aparthotel Oceanus on a strip called Olhos de Agua on the Algarve, Portugal’s riviera where I recently stayed for 21 days. “Dois Irmaos near the Intermarche.

Who will be the first American to say: “Our President is mentally ill”?
