Passing through Boise on the way to Seattle, my brother and I had to stop to see the famous blue field at the college. While visiting the campus bookstore, we asked the two workers there where to go to get a good Boise lunch. After thinking for a bit, both gave me the same answer: Boise Fry Company.
Dickie Brennan’s is usually my favorite restaurant in New Orleans and we ike sitting at a table in the bar to enjoy the energy. We lucked out a very attentive host staff made it happen for us!
Well established,and famous for their Clam Chowder.We split a Fisherman’s Platter,and it was more food than we could both eat.Lots of Whole Belly Clams,large Scollops,fried Oysters,medium sized Shrimp,and a delicious piece of fish.Not the place ,for a romantic dinner,but a great place to relax,and eat.Go “off season”,and get great service,and great food,with no waiting to be seated.
The CIA has inspired excellence throughout the food world by leading the way: in the Education of students, in the Elevation of the culinary profession, through the Innovation of thought leadership, and through Collaborations on critical food and industry issues. In all these ways, the college has truly changed the way the world looks at food.
This place has completely changed my life–and by life I mean how I understand jerky. I guess I was conditioned to believe that it came only in zip-locked packages that required extreme jaw muscles to gnaw through. True story: I’ve actually given myself a headache from attempting to chew jerky.
I’m writing about the Clinton street location. Top notch pastries, and if
someone brings me some i’m delighted. I won’t go into the store though.
Sometimes i wish the proprietor of a place would stand in line themselves, or be waited on, just to see how paltry the service is. The service just doesn’t work - and i doubt it is exclusively the fault of the people working there, it just isn’t designed for service and nobody’s ever given it any consideration.
This is the best deli I have been to in Philadelphia hands down. It is everything one would want from an old deli in an old part of the city. Casual, a sense of history, sandwiches the size of your head, GOOD sandwiches. I did not have desert, but by the looks of them, I would have not been disappointed.
Welcome to Greasewood Flat! Housed in a 130-year-old bunkhouse, Greasewood Flat was voted one of the “Oldest, Quirkiest and most Classic Bars” in America. Since 1975, we have served up hearty burgers and wicked libations to cowboys, bikers, locals, and tourists alike!
I didn’t know that hot dogs could be so special until I came to Hot Dougs. We rented a car in Chicago to drive out to the suburbs of Illinois just to try some Foie Gras Hot Dogs. The wait was about an hour out the door of the restaurant. We ordered 4 different hot dogs to try.
Definitely a tourist trap, but a GREAT one!!!! Everything made of ice, I may never leave! Forget the proffered coat & gloves, this is short and polo weather for this Northerner. Except that is for the right glove you’ll need to hold the ice glass full of ice vodka. well, not full. Actually just a splash, which is why I didn’t give 5 starts. great concept, not enough booze! I actually got a kick out of eating my “glass” after the vodka was gone.
I finally went to Keens Steakhouse! Opened since 1885…. it definitely has a long history. Decor seems to ooze men only atmosphere, especially with the pipes lines along the ceiling.
Over 20 years ago, Kermit Carpenter began selling smoothies from a small stand in front of Papa’s Restaurant in Key West during his tenure as Papa’s bookkeeper. When the head chef suddenly drove off into the proverbial sunset one night, Kermit was left looking for a new adventure. Having been brainstorming with his sister Anita and her husband John, they decided that whatever they decided to do, it needed to be high quality and say “Key West”… gourmet food and Key Lime fit the bill, and so began…
Sometimes you choose to save the best for last and sometimes it just happens to fall that way. Kreuz Market happens to fall into the latter. On the final trip down to Lockhart to try the Big 3 of BBQ (Black’s, Smitty’s and Kruez), we showed up at noon on a Saturday and there were probably 8-10 people in front of us which was a bit surprising considering the lines we encountered at the other places were a bit longer and definitely did not move as smoothly.
It wasn’t too long until I had a burrito craving, and then it was time to check this place out. The line wasn’t nearly as long as El Farolito - only about two or three people long. I actually got my food surprisingly quickly. And it was a bit on the expensive side ($8-something for what amounted to a super burrito). They even put it in a paper bag when I asked for it “to go” (more on that later).
My first time was magical. Did not expect it to be that damn good, but it was. So darn freaking good. That was almost a year ago, so this past Sunday I decided it’s been long overdue to pay this place another visit. Drove there, found parking immediately right around the corner! If anyone knows how hard it is to find parking in that neighborhood, you would be giving me a pound. Got out of the car with my two bottles of wine, approached the shop and guess what!
When it comes to macarons (note: not macaroons), you can’t beat Miette Patisserie, especially not at these prices. Consider that making these airy little sandwich cookies yourself might be the world’s biggest pain in the ass, and then consider that you can buy them for less than $2 each, where they come in a nice waxed bag with a cute sticker. Buy four and they come in an adorable, elegant little box.
One of the best restaurants in Boston so, of course, had to make a stop on a recent trip. A couple of friends and I came on a Wednesday evening. Our local friend tried to make a reservation early in the evening, but they weren’t busy at that time and didn’t take the reservation. When we came around 7:30, the wait was about 30 min.
OK I would not have given it 4 Star if not for the help sadly, of Hurricane Sandy. We couldn’t easily get a reservation here because you have to call at 3PM on the same day and really, how crazy it is to fight for a reservation with minutes-long window of opportunity!
Founded in 1956, Parkesdale Farm Market is the largest family-operated Strawberry & Citrus Market in Florida. Our strawberry farm harvests more than 3 million pounds of strawberries every year! Thousands of people visit our local Market each year for the sole purpose of tasting our world-famous strawberry shortcake. We’d like to invite you to experience our sweet and succulent strawberries in a tropical garden surrounded by lush flowers and foliage. You’ll also enjoy the best home grown…
Excellent, thoughtful, extra special food from start to finish. Complex, original and beautifully executed. The crab bisque with dungeoness crab cake and vanilla oil? MY GOD. At one point in the meal, I actually just started giggling. It was so good, I literally started giggling like a school girl.
