Duke’s Malibu

I am not sure if it is because I am from the Midwest, but I will always choose a brunch buffet over eating a small brunch “meal” at a trendy cafe. Based on the breakfast/brunch restaurants I have tried in Southern California thus far, Duke’s Malibu is number one on my list for Sunday brunch. … More Duke’s Malibu

Atwood

Atwood, located on the bottom floor of the Alise Chicago hotel, will forever be known as the restaurant with the best cheese plate setup. Not only do they serve an awesome cheese plate with raspberry sauce, fresh fruit, and nuts, but they even added a big chunk of fresh honey that was literally melting onto … More Atwood

Lemonade

  California seems to do fast-casual healthy dining restaurants well (although some would argue at an expensive price). When I first moved to California and heard people referring to Lemonade I just thought there was a restaurant that was known for its awesome lemonade until I realized that the actual name of the restaurant is … More Lemonade

BarTaco

  If the restaurant had a different name(which did not literally have the word taco in it), then I would be confused about the menu offering when first visiting BarTaco. The blue and white colors and the interior design, which includes really cool wicker baskets hanging from the ceiling, do not scream delicious taco joint … More BarTaco

Frothy Monkey

If you are one of those people who believes true coffee is only black coffee, or you are against over-the-top coffee drinks, then maybe you will not enjoy this coffee shop as much as I did. However, if you really enjoy flavored coffee then you should visit Frothy Monkey and try their coconut cream latte, … More Frothy Monkey

Wildhorse Saloon

  Although I peaked into multiple bars along Honky Tonk Highway none of them captured my interest until I came upon Wildhorse Saloon on 2nd street, which branches off of Lower Broadway. If you are looking for the crowded bar with more of a party atmosphere then this probably is not the place you are … More Wildhorse Saloon

The Stillery

  The Stillery, located on 2nd street which is right off Lower Broadway in Nashville, is a great little restaurant that serves good food in a simple setting. It is a refreshing contrast to the bar food served along Lower Broadway(Honky Tonk Highway), although as you can see in the photos below we ended up … More The Stillery

Simple Cafe

  While there are a few ice cream shops, pizzerias, bars, and grills along the main streets in Lake Geneva, if you are willing to go over a few blocks from downtown you can try Simple Cafe. The best review I could give this place is that I ordered a burger from the menu thinking … More Simple Cafe

Chicago q

  While Chicago is not usually know for its barbecue scene, Chicago q is definitely a step in the right direction. Chicago q is headed by Chef Art Smith who has an impressive bio. Smith heads several popular restaurants in the United States and has cooked for many celebrities, most notably as Oprah Winfrey’s personal … More Chicago q
