Éclat Chocolate

Éclat Chocolate

What’s better than a box of chocolate on Valentine’s Day? A surprise box (or two) of chocolates that arrive with the promise of more surprises yet to come.

The Peruvian Nacional Traditional Truffles

It just doesn’t get any better [...]

Ink & Elm

Ink & Elm

Ink and Elm is a beautiful restaurant that welcomes you from both front and back. This entrance offers a reprieve from the cold on the backside to access their shared lot. Sharing the space with Bad Dog Taqueria, Rise & Dine, and a little Starbucks [...]

1910 Public House

Fried Pickles

Lightly breaded with a crisp, flaky batter, these sweet and spicy pickles were a great way to start our meal.

Lazy Magnolia Southern Pecan Brown Ale (And, a nice glass of Sangiovese)

1910 Burger With Pimento [...]

Yebo Restaurant & Bar

Bunny Chow

That sounds so much nicer than chicken liver curry with peri-peri in a South African bread bowl. Or, then again, does it? No matter. It doesn’t really matter what you call it. We want to eat it. This was a mildly spiced, rich and creamy curry [...]

Lotsa Potato, Little Tuna

It’s a good thing we like a good dose of heat because this Tunisian Tuna sandwich was swimming in [...]

Varasano’s Pizzeria — Brunch

The Half Moon Dolce (Fontina, Capicola, Dates, Walnuts, Honey & Minced Rosemary)

This pie was practically begging for a glass (or bottle) of wine. Sadly, we were too early.

Note to self: Delay all future brunch meals til noon or later.

H&F Bottle Shop

Barolo Chinato (Antica Ricetta di Giulio Cocchi)

This Barolo Chinato was an instant grab. Instant Win. Cocchi Barolo Chinato makes a lovely after-dinner digestif to sip… as well as a delicious addition to many cocktails. The sharp (yet well-rounded) bite it adds can make a great cocktail even [...]

Feast

Fried Chicken with bacon bleu risotto

Wow, this is the sort of meal that should require a disclaimer: Don’t make plans for today… you’ll need a nap… soon. The bacon bleu risotto was incredibly rich, buttery, creamy, and smooth. A generous dotting of bacon added smoke appeal and depth of [...]
