Other Grand Snacks in Grand Cayman

It wasn’t all tasting menus and drinks on the beach. I managed to eat a bevy of other thangs as well, because, well…what else was I to do? Because I’m just a dainty lady, these 15 things were my top favorites: Burrata at Ave. Holy crap, this was hands down the best burrata of my…

Chef’s Counter at Avecita

After a delicious dinner the first night at Ave in the gorgeous Kimpton Seafire, I basically felt like family. Everyone at this restaurant was beyond wonderful and honestly every night I dined there (all but once) really solidified a memorable vacation experience. I don’t know if I was the first single lady to ever grace…

Zero George Cooking Class

Because I’m romantic AF, I booked the for Gent and me, “the best new cooking class” in the world. He got real sick so I did what any classy broad would do and begged for a store credit.  One or my bff and lady loves, joined me do an absolutely fantastic evening of cheese balloons…

Busk the Husk

My charming colleague/bff and I rolled into Charleston just to have a couple bomb ass food experiences within hours of each other.  First, was Sean Brock’s Husk. I’ve been here a few times, always having had my hair blown back…this time not as much. It wasn’t bad by any means, but the anticipated orgasms for…

What’s Up, Raleigh?

Our little city is growing! Maybe some credit goes to T&L placing Raleigh on the to visit list in 2017, but the downtown neighborhoods are booming! I’ve never seen so much activity as I have this weekend! After working from the comfort of sweats and a couch all week-long, I “forced” myself to wrap up…

RPM Italian

During four days in Chicago, I managed two trips to RPM Italian. How’s that for a review. On night one, the Gent and I had a delicious date night. The meal was so tasty that it prompted me to return before the Psychedelic Furs show to try the few things I’d failed to on night…

Nico Osteria

Playing tag along to the Gent’s meetings last week in Chicago was far too enjoyable. I saw lots of friends, but also kept a “treat yo’self” day for myself. The day started with a stroll down Michigan Avenue, reflecting on how much it’s changed and how much isn’t   there anymore. Less than enamored, I…

Mother and Sons

I saw no mother and no sons at Durham’s Mother and Sons. I did see a very chic sommelier/manager in the most bomb ass long wool skirt accented with a thick belt and a 20″ waistline. File that under, people who should not be allowed to work in a pasta restaurant. Several skinny waitresses later,…

Legal Seafood

Recently, I was out and about in Boston for business. My dinner plans cancelled at the last minute and I found myself in an airport hotel in my less than favorite city. Hooray! I decided better than to eat a $30 salad at an airport Hilton and bust my arse over to Legal Seafood for…

Carmella’s & The Spectator Bar

After our less than amusing dinner at McCrady’s Tavern, we opted for dessert elsewhere and found Carmella’s dessert bar. Dessert and Bar are two words that should always be friends and more often than not, seem to be in the south. We split three desserts among three ladies. There was a cannoli, not pictured, that…

Grille 225 & McCrady’s Tavern

Are you sick of hearing about Charleston restaurants? Hope not; there’s a few left to go. Our final night in Charleston, we had perhaps my favorite drink of the trip, “Nitrotinis” from Grille 225. We arrived just after 6PM for a pre-dinner drink and scored a seat by the bar as the jazz band was…

Black Tap and Callie’s Hot Little Biscuits

The next morning we awakened early for another long walk because we knew that walk would be resulting in biscuits. But, first…coffeee.. We wandered over to Black Tap coffee which was over in the University of Charleston neighborhood. A very hipster vibe, we felt a little out-of-place, but the iced coffee was just delicious. Straight…
