What a fun meal! I had dinner at Chiko with my girlfriend Ruth on 8-9-2017. The restaurant is fast casual (read: order at the counter, seat yourself) but they actually do a tasting menu as well!

I had brunch at Kapnos with my little lady on 8-5-2017. It was a nice meal and very kid friendly. I definitely want to go back for dinner though since I don’t feel like I got to experience everything they have to offer. Atmosphere: 3 out of 5 Food & Drink: 3 out of 5 […]

Birds Eye Sandwiches*

Birds Eye Sandwiches isn’t technically in the Michelin Guide except it’s part of Doi Moi, which is, so I’m writing about it anyway.

Best of Westfield and Chautauqua

Westfield, NY is a tiny town on the shores of Lake Erie. Oddly enough you may find yourself there someday as it’s about 10 minutes from Chautauqua Institution, a popular summer resort founded in 1874. It’s due to that proximity that you find things like gourmet restaurants and cheese shops in seemingly the middle of […]
