Table

Liz raved about the seasonal goodness of Table, the restaurant where she had made a reservation during out visit.  The menu is farm to table, and it felt like the table we were seated at upstairs was in the middle of someone’s living room.  I was immediately comfortable.  Bring on the food. The menus were…

Little Beet Table

I had tried Little Beet when it was near my old office and really enjoyed their healthy, seasonal concept.  When Brutus suggested meeting at their sit down restaurant, Little Beet Table, I was interested to see how they would translate the idea to a more formal experience. Little Beet Table serves farm to table food…

Coquette

A coquette is a coy flirt, which is just how Bridge, Liz, and I wanted to feel on our last night in New Orleans.  With the boyfriends/husbands at home, we wanted to flirt with the town…but it’s a mature flirt – more Magazine Street than Bourbon Street.  Bridget’s local foodie friend recommended the farm to…

Collins Quarter

I am only just realizing I never provided my write-up of Collins Quarter, which I tried out way back over Thanksgiving.  I think that’s because I was torn.  I thought the food was very good and the decor was great, but the service was pretty bad. The food: Collin’s Quarter capitalizes on the avocado toast…

22 Square

A few years ago, Savannah started doing restaurant week and, more than anything, it motivates my parents to get out of the house and spend a night out, dining at a fun place.  Since restaurant week was happening while I was home, I got to crash their date night.  When it came to choosing from…

Friend of a Farmer

My Mom arrived for her visit a day earlier than my Daddy so we could have a little bit of one on one time.  Ain’t she thoughtful?  She landed early enough in the day that we could head straight to breakfast and since this was Mommy/Daughter time I had to pick a place with ample…

Westville

I had no idea how vegetarians survived until eating here.  Westville is not a vegetarian restaurant, but the long list of daily market sides is the best thing about this place.  Everything is so simple and fresh, and that is enough to draw long lines for this no-reservations spot. Karina and I both started with…

ABC Kitchen

Last week I got to cross one of the biggies off my list by dining at ABC Kitchen.  After reading all the reviews of one of 2010’s hottest openings, I had been dying to try.  It is connected to ABC Carpet and Home, which means it is outfitted by one of the city’s to-die-for home…
