Spiaggia is a beautiful restaurant located in a skyscraper in downtown Chicago. Perfect way to top off your day of shopping along Michigan Avenue. Pastas are excellent, wines a plenty, good service. A little pricey, but worth the splurge IMO
Kamehachi is one of my favorite restaurants. It's where I fell in love with shrimp dumplings (shumai) and what a love it is! Everything we've eaten there is delicious.
Love love love Galatoire's. The food is wonderful, the place is gorgeous and the service is top notch. Try the crabmeat maison, it is heavenly. Also be sure to ask your waiter if there is anything off menu like crawfish etouffee. It is soooooo yummy.
Camellia grill's fate after the storm was a big unknown, and I, like many, am thrilled that they have reopened. It is a fun New Orleans experience going there. Everything is good, and only made better with a chocolate freeze.
Mandina's is THE destination in New Orleans for Po Boy sandwiches. While you are there, try out their onion rings as well. Warning - the sandwiches are huge, even a half loaf will be difficult to finish!
Mignon Faget is a New Orleans legend. Her jewelry has been around my whole life and I love it. It is unique, beautiful and a tribute to everyone's beloved New Orleans. Most pieces are available in sterling silver and gold, which gives people at all price ranges a chance to own some of this truly amazing jewelry
Jon was my guy at Van Michael Buckead. I liked him so much that I sent my husband to him. He liked him so much too! We are soooooooooooo happy that he started his own business (yay jon) and especially that we do not have to go to VM for a haircut anymore. He is amazing, very professional, interesting and NO ONE cuts bangs like jon.
Horseradish grill is located off the beaten restaurant path in Chastain Park. The location is truly lovely, and it is a charming little restaurant inside. Fried chicken is the specialty here (they have been featured on Food Network preparing this), and it does not dissapoint. A great place for a special occasion!
This is a great little restaurant tucked in behind Bacchanalia on Howell Mill. Southern food at its finest. Everything I've tried is delicious, but I would highly recommend the grown up grilled cheese and tomato soup. It is incredible. The restaurant is open and airy, nice staff. A little out of the way but worth the trip.
I ate here last weekend and it does not disappoint. It is very pricey, for most of us a special occasion only meal, but worth every penny. The portions are small, but with all of the amuse bouche between each of the four courses, you will not go hungry. Mention if you are there for a birthday or anniversary, they will give you a little miniature cake which is just adorable.
The figs and parmesan with honey and balsamic was the best part of my meal, but by then I was almost too full to enjoy it
I will never understand why they moved from the previous, quaint location to this trendy industrial area but the food remains as one of Atlanta's best.
