My Best Three Meals in 2017.

My Best Three Meals in 2017.

So, last year, I shared my top three dishes of 2016, and throughout this year, I’ve been sharing my favorite monthly plates.  This year, I think I want to expand and mention my top three meals instead.  As I reflected on the many dining experiences […]

Rang Mahal by Atul Kochhar – An Amazing Experience in Dubai.

Rang Mahal by Atul Kochhar – An Amazing Experience in Dubai.

To celebrate our 12th wedding anniversary earlier this year, Hubs and I wanted to do something special.  I tasked Hubs to finding a place and although we debated Le Petit Maison (maybe some time soon), we ultimately decided on Rang Mahal at the JW Marriott […]

Beautiful night at Bridges.

Beautiful night at Bridges.

During our 2014 trip to Amsterdam, Hubs and I decided to break away from our beloved bitterballen and test out one of the fine dining options in the city.  If I’m remembering correctly, this meal was very close to our 11th wedding anniversary.  I can’t recall the […]

Vinkeles, a well earned Michelin star.

Vinkeles, a well earned Michelin star.

To end our recent time in Amsterdam on a high note, I debated a few restaurants (including a return trip to Bridges, which I’ll cover in a later post), but ultimately decided on Vinkeles (and yes, I’m also dying to stay at the hotel it […]

When sending off a colleague earlier this week, we asked her where she wanted to go and she only had two requests: Hakkasan or Zuma.  Either is a fine choice, but I think Zuma was ultimately the better selection for a group (for reasons I’ll […]

Zeezout: Divine Lunch in Rotterdam.

You might be noticing a trend here, but on Hubs’ and I recent trip to the Netherlands this summer, we fell into a great habit of having a busy morning and then treating ourselves to a long, indulgent lunch (the best kind of holiday!).  After […]

Lovely Lunch at Nevel.

Lovely Lunch at Nevel.

One thing about jet lag is that is can sometimes work in your favor.  Traveling from the Emirates to Amsterdam as Hubs and I do almost every summer, we are usually wide awake by 7AM – allowing for a proper lie in with television before […]

L’Atelier: A Treat in Bucharest

L’Atelier: A Treat in Bucharest

After we did a dine in at home, at the recommendation of one of the chefs, my traveling companion and I made the decision for our last night in Bucharest to dine at L’Atelier, an upscale dining option attached to the Hotel Epoque. Reservations?  Given […]

What’s the Dill?

What’s the Dill?

Hubs and I were lucky enough to travel to Iceland this summer and after a small amount of research I knew Dill would be on our list. Reservation?  Easy peasy lemon squeezy.  Online reservation that was confirmed quickly.  Given how far out in advance we […]
