I’ve had the good fortune of traveling quite a bit recently. I’m no connoisseur, but I do like a good meal. As I come across a great restaurant, I’ll make a note of it here.
- Moonshine Grill: I had the Green Chile Macaroni and a friend had the Chicken & Waffles (both of us greatly enjoyed our meals).
DBA Barbeque: I had the Archie Bunker (it was great). Another friend had the Three Meat Sampler (also very happy with his meal).
Fado Irish Pub - Midtown: Food was ok. More mentionable was their Manhattan.
Tin Lizzy’s: I ate at the Midtown location. Tacos were awesome, and the service was amazing.
Kansas City, MO
- Grunauer: No amount of ranting will convey my love for this place. The food is amazing, as are the drinks, atmosphere, and service.
New York, NY
Masala King: Great atmosphere, great curry. I got a mixed drink with cucumber in it that was awesome, too.
Farida: Several years ago, I went to Central Asia. The food here here is the real deal. Interesting selection of import beers, too.
The Smith: Amazing fresh seafood (the raw oysters on the half-shell were some of the best I’ve ever had). Also one of the best Manhattans I’ve ever had.
Las Vegas, NV
Bazaar Meat by Jose Andres: Some incredibly interesting options here, and everything was amazing. Went home with the meat sweats.
Tom Colicchio’s Craftsteak: 14oz domestic Waygu skirt: amazing; Assorted Wild Mushrooms: amazing; Dark & Stormy: ok, but not the best I’ve had.
Jasmine: I thought this was a good middle-of-the-road dining experience, but nothing close to justifying the cost of the meal.
