Why don’t I live in German Village again? Seriously. I think I’ll just move there to be closer to Pistacia Vera. I will, of course, gain 35 pounds over the course of a week or two because I would be there every. day. Three times a day. I knew the pastries were good.

Persephone’s Kitchen was closed tonight. Basil presented a really extensive Dine Originals Week menu, with four courses no less, for $20.

A snug little restaurant right between Surly Girl… Read More Dine Originals Week | Basil

The shop has a tremendous variety of cookies and cakes (never frozen), as well as Crimson Cup coffee and fresh-baked… Read More Happy Re-Birthday, Goodie Shop!
Shhh, come here. I almost don’t want to tell you about this. The food was delicious and the shop was so lovely and quiet, almost like a secret. If you find out and tell two friends, and they tell two friends, and they tell two friends, well, you get the point. But I think Tuula would… Read More A European Lunch: Tuula’s
Maia and I enjoyed cocktails and dinner at The Rossi tonight. Maia is rather worldly and has been just about everywhere in this fair city of ours. I love that about her. She can order with the pros. I started with a Ohio Apple Pie cocktail with some Brothers Drake mead because I just recently tasted… Read More Cocktails at the Rossi with Maia
